Westwood’s powered scarifier simply mounts to the rear of your lawn tractor, driven by the mowers power take-off, and uses high-speed rotating tines to tease out unwanted thatch and moss from your lawn, leaving behind the intact grass plant.
Please note: delivery is only available within a 50 mile radius of our Ipswich and Norwich depots for all ride on lawnmowers and some of the larger associated accessories.
Regularly scarifying your lawn, especially in the spring and autumn, can help prevent the build up of thatch, moss and other organic matter, and thus promotes healthy lawn growth. Thatch builds up as old grass dies and is replaced, creating a layer of organic matter which can sometimes prevent moisture, light and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass in your lawn. It is very important, therefore, to periodically remove this build-up in order to ensure that your lawn grows thick and healthy.
While thatch removal can be achieved manually on smaller lawns, this powered scarifier from Westwood is undoubtedly a quicker, easier and more effective way of achieving the same results. The powered scarifier unit simply mounts to the rear of your lawn tractor, driven by the mower’s power take-off, and uses high-speed rotating tines to tease out the unwanted thatch and moss, leaving behind the intact grass plant and aerating the ground to help stimulate fresh growth. As such, Westwood’s powered scarifier is an essential accessory for anyone looking to maintain a fine finish on a large formal lawn.
• Removes moss and thatch that can prevent your grass from receiving adequate light and nutrients, ensuring healthy growth and a clean lawn
• Mounts to the rear of your Westwood ride-on lawn tractor, making the scarifying process much quicker, easier and more efficient than when using a manual rake
About WestwoodWestwood is a British manufacturing success story. Based just outside Oxford, the company has been producing high quality, state of the art garden tractors for over thirty years. In that time, Westwood has become a word synonymous with quality among those in the know and Westwood's garden tractors are famous for providing long lasting, superbly reliable performance. This is because every employee is passionate about constantly improving every part of the manufacturing process, with a deep understanding of how their machines perform in real life situations a core part of the development process.
Westwood’s tractors are also a little different from most though, as they are specifically designed to cope with the British climate. As such, all electronic controls are fully weatherproofed, while painted components have been tested with 500 hours of continuous salt spray exposure to ensure they are protected against corrosion. Even more impressive, however, is Westwood’s unique collection system, designed to make it easy to cut wet grass without having to worry about clogging.
Luckily, Westwood garden tractors cut and collect in a totally different way than most lawnmowers as the system doesn’t rely on air flow to collect grass cuttings. Instead, the Westwood collector uses a spindle of brushes driven by the tractor’s power take-off to sweep grass clippings from your lawn and into the hopper, leaving a pristine lawn surface behind in its wake. The Powered Grass Collector is effective in wet or dry conditions and out-performs every other type of collector on the market, ensuring that you can achieve a perfect cut and a tidy finish regardless of the conditions underfoot. Moreover, Westwood’s Powered Grass Collectors are also fitted with a heavy rear roller capable of producing a crisp stripe effect as you mow for an even more luxurious finish.
In addition to this fantastic innovative system, Westwood garden tractors are tough, user-friendly and truly built to last, making them perfect for serious home gardeners and lawn care professionals alike. If you apply online (at http://www.westwoodtractors.com/demo/) you can even request a free home demonstration so that you can see exactly what a Westwood tractor can do (at which point we're pretty sure you’ll decide you want one).
