Remove dead thatch & moss effectively

Our petrol lawn scarifiers are high quality, powerful, professional pieces of gardening equipment. They have durable blades which turn over the lawn to tease out thatch, moss, dead grass, and other unwanted organic matter from the lawn. Essentially, removing this matter creates space for new grass to grow and thrive whilst helping air, water and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass more easily. This process allows the grass to grow into a full, vibrant, and healthy lawn. These scarifiers are ideal for use on lawns and grassed surfaces at home, as well as public areas, parks, sports pitches, and more. They are most effective when used in the Autumn and the Spring when the conditions are suited to the job, and the ground is not too soft, too hard, or too dry.

Despite their professional capabilities, these scarifiers are easy enough for anyone to use. They are ideal for professional gardeners and landscapers as well as homeowners. Use the machine as you would a lawnmower, walking along in straight lines up, down and across the lawn. Set the scarifier blades on a high setting at first – you don’t want to go straight in with a low setting and shock the grass. Two passes over the lawn with a scarifier set at two slightly different heights is usually enough, but you can do more passes over the garden if needed. Carry out each pass at right angles to the last, lowering the blades a little on each pass. Once you have scarified the lawn with the petrol scarifier, the thatch and moss will be removed. Then you can re-seed bare patches of the lawn and overseed the entire lawn area generally to encourage full, vibrant, healthy new grass growth throughout your garden.

Book online or by phone. collect in store or arrange delivery.

You can book a petrol lawn scarifier hire online using the booking system or over the phone with our Hire Team. Once booked, you can collect from your tool hire from your local store, or we can deliver to your home, business premises, or site. (Delivery charges apply). We also have Personal Protection Packs available for purchase during checkout. These packs include safety goggles, safety gloves, dust mask and earplugs.

Using one of these machines to scarify your lawn at the start of Spring or in the Autumn is a great way to rejuvenate lawn to a professional standard. A petrol lawn scarifier will prune the grass, remove unwanted thatch and encourage thicker, healthier grass growth.

Please note: You should only scarify a lawn in ideal conditions when the weather is warm, and there is some rain. If you scarify a lawn in extreme weather, you could do more harm than good. For example, suppose you scarify during a period of heavy rain, or extreme conditions like a drought. In that case, the grass will not be able to recover properly and develop into an idyllic full, rich, healthy lawn.

Much better than electric

This is much better machine than the electric ones and does a better job overall. Petrol versions can be very expensive to buy and we only need them a couple of times a year so hiring makes a lot more sense. I would recommend highly this machine and company.

Worth the wait...

I had to wait a week to hire this machine as someone else had it out on hire from my local tool shop, but it was worth the wait. It came ready with a full tank of petrol so we didn't have to worry about that.

Our lawn problems were worse than we thought!

I didnt realise just in what bad shape the lawn was in until we used one of these petrol scarifiers! It took our so much moss and thatch we lawn was almost bare afterwards, but now it's starting to look great again since we have been overseeding. I would definitely use Mammoth Hire again. I will be coming back for an aerator soon!

Good quality scarifier machine and good hire prices.

Very pleased with the scarifier machine I hired. It was very good quality and did a good job. The price to hire a scrifier with mammoth hire was better than the other quotes I had form other companies too.
