Product Overview

Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ801E 13 in. electric scarifier + lawn dethatcher. Powered by a robust 12 Amp motor, the Dethatcher Joe rakes a 13 in. W path in a single pass to get your job done fast. Enhancing its raking ability is AirBoost technology, which maximizes thatch pickup with spring steel tines that stay sharp longer for reliable performance. Use the 5-position depth control knob to tailor the raking depth from 0.4 in. (10 mm below the soil) to 0.4 in. (10 mm above the soil), depending on your lawn’s scarifying or dethatching needs. Scarifying your lawn at regular intervals cuts grass roots and encourages growth for thicker, healthier turf. Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems and grass clippings that accumulates on lawns over time, blocking the flow of water, oxygen and vital nutrients. It is important to periodically remove thatch in order to keep your lawn green and healthy. While ordinary manual rakes are tiresome to use and not very effective, the electric Dethatcher Joe starts instantly with the push of a button and easily gets the job done without polluting the atmosphere with toxic carbon emissions. No gas, oil or tune-ups make the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe your green choice for greening your lawn.
  • Ideal for revitalizing small to mid-sized lawns
  • Powerful 12 Amp motor rakes a 13 in. wide path to get your job done faster
  • Scarifier function to cut grass roots for thicker growth, healthier lawns
  • AirBoost technology spring steel tines for maximum thatch pickup
  • Maintenance free-no gas, oil or tune-ups
  • Tailor raking depth with 5-position depth control
  • Detachable thatch collection bag for easy disposal

The Most Satisfying Tool I Have Ever Purchased
Customer review from snowjoe.com logo
Dethatching has to be one of the most satisfying things I have ever done. I noticed in 2019 when I aerated, that I had a significant layer of thatch (greater than 1"). My property is a new build approximately 2 years old when I dethatched for the first time. The front yard was sodded and the backyard was seeded. This tool made quick work of the thatch underneath. Both photos of the piles are just from 1000 sqft areas at a time and just on the first pass alone on the second highest setting. Since dethatching, aerating, overseeding, and fertilizing, my lawn has never looked better. Removing the extreme excess thatch is doing wonders, allowing fertilizer, micronutrients, biostimulants, and water all reach the root zone, rather than being caught higher and not providing benefit to the grass as well as it could. Also excited to see how reducing the thatch layer reduces the prevalence of fungus next year. I use two fungicides both twice per year as a preventative, but still get spots coming up. I'm hoping with a thick layer of thatch gone, the lawn won't hold so much water and humidity so high up, allowing fungus to proliferate. I've let my parents and neighbors all use it and now they all want their own! As for the scarifying portion, I used this on my in laws lawn, which was mostly weeds and crabgrass. After taking care of the weeds, I used the scarifier on the lowest setting to create rows perfect for seed to soil contact for overseeding. After overseeding at 10 lbs / 1000, you can see the seeds coming up almost in little rows from where the scarifier dug deep! Now the in laws lawn in coming in very nice. I'm confident the scarifier provided those rows and the seed to soil contact when the seed fell in them was perfect! Great product and very impressed!

Best on the market, hands down!
Customer review from snowjoe.com logo
I purchased my dethatcher on July 29th. This unit literally took 10 minutes to put together. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver to attach the lower handle. The height is adjustable. They also include a scarifier to help promote better soil to seed contact. Overall I am very impressed by the power that this little machine puts out. This dethatcher performs like a big work horse. I highly recommend this product

Lightweight with heavy duty performance
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I de-thatch my lawn every spring to get rid of the moss that takes hold over the wet west coast winters. In the past, I rented a gas-powered machine to do the job, but the cost, hassle and weight of the heavy duty machine was not justifiable for my 2,500 square foot lawn. The SunJoe machine is light and easy to manage, though you need to be sure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations and purchase a heavy-duty extension cord. Light duty cords won't be enough to supply the power this unit needs. The unit comes with two attachments. One is just for power raking with wire tines and the other is a scarifier which can be set so that it cuts down to the soil. If you need to do an early spring restoration, cut the grass super short, scarify to remove the thatch, then spread a thin layer of topsoil and overseed. My lawn is the healthiest it has been in years.

I installed the dethatcher unit and started on the side of the house. It brought up so much stuff I had to empty the catcher about every 10 feet. At that point I decided to run without the catcher and then pick up the thatch with my lawn mower. The unit is pretty light weight so it is easy to handle. Yet it seems to be heavy enough that it stays down and digs out the thatch. I also changed to the scarifier unit and it also brought up as much or more stuff than the dethatcher did. Because you are limited to a 100 foot 12 gauge extension cord you can't do a very big lot. The big plus for most subdivision owners is you can do a part of the lawn one day and the rest another. The cost is about what 2 one day rentals would be and you don't have to rush to get it done. Overall I would say will worth the money.

This is a great little machine. I have a large yard so I was a little skeptical about it being electric. It did a great job getting the thatch up. My only reason not giving it 5 stars is I wish the bag had more capacity. I do recommend this product!

I bought this equipment with the intention of dethatching my front yard (~3,000 sq ft) to that i can remove the thatch, Aerate and top dress my lawn. The unit simply didn’t have the power to work through areas where the soil was more compact than others. This unit most likely works great in ideal soil conditions. I will have to rent a gas powered unit instead.

Great Machine...
Customer review from snowjoe.com logo
This little baby really does the job. I used the thatching attachment. Easy to put on the machine. Just make sure you use the proper gauge extension cord. Very important. I used one rated for 12 amps. This machine really brought my lawn back. I had tons of spongy thatch. I had to go over it all 3 times, but it did the job, and it was actually fun. Then I just sucked the debris up with my mower. Took two passes to do that, but well worth it. I could actually almost hear my yard sighing with relief to get the tons of thatch off it. My yard had not been thatched for years. It is looking tremendous after two short weeks. The catcher is too small on the negative. Other than that...a great little machine.
