Item Information

Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ801E 13 in. Electric Scarifier Lawn Dethatcher. 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.

  • Powered by a robust 12-amp motor
  • Rakes a 13 in. wide path in a single pass to get your job done fast
  • AirBoost technology maximizes thatch pickup with spring steel tines that stay sharp longer for reliable performance
  • Se 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
  • ETL-approved
  • 2 year limited warranty

Sun Joe AJ801E Electric Lawn Dethatcher with Collection Bag, 13 in., 12A, Scarifier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little machine I have a small yard and the Sun Joe on a 50' cord works perfectly. I would have given it 5 stars except the rear bag grass catcher is a joke. It really does work fine without it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great investment for a great looking lawn After 17 years of never detaching, my lawn needed help. I wasn't going to use a hand powered rake. After many hours of research I went with the Sun Joe, it had 12 amp power, 5 depth settings,& dethatcher / scarifier rollers. I would have given it 5 stars if it had a larger collection bag. I found it better to not use the bag and run a bungee cord across rear bottom of housing to keep the shield slightly open. My lovely Wife followed me with a self propelled yard vac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lawn Dethatcher Put this machine together and gave it a try. Amazing at what it did. The lawn really needed this operation and wow, unbelievable how much was removed. Come spring I will slice the lawn and seed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT machine...bag, manual & assembly, NOT great First, the bad stuff (all minor): (1) Based on the list of contents, after searching the box for 15 minutes, I appeared to be missing two bolts and compression washers. Turned out I wasn't – they'd already been used to install the scarification mechanism during the (factory) assembly. It would have been nice to know that before.... (2) The first step of assembly was tough -- insert each lower arm into a socket in the plastic housing, then drive a phillips screw through a hole in the side of the plastic housing (into the socket), then through two holes in the arm itself to secure it. But the holes in the arm are invisible, so you have to move the handle around until the screw goes into the first hole, then drive it about four turns through the handle and search for the OTHER hole (no easy task) and then try to get the screw to bite in that second hole. I couldn't do it. I pulled the handle out of the socket, and drilled a hole in BOTH sides of the plastic socket (going through the existing hole in the outside wall, then through the inside wall of the socket – there's nothing on the inside that could be damaged). Then, when I put the handle into the socket, when it was in the right position I could see light coming through the aligned holes. (3) When you assemble the three parts of each handle, you have to put the middle arm on the INSIDE of the top and bottom parts, NOT ON THE OUTSIDE as shown in the instructions. The square holes at each end of the center arm hold the squared bolt heads. If you do it as shown, the bolts just spin, and you can't tighten the handle-knobs. (4) The bag to catch dethatched material is a total joke. Other reviewers had warned me about it, but I was appalled at how quickly it filled up...just three feet into the first line (heavy moss). Page 8 of the manual says. "WARNING! Do not attempt to use the product without the thatch collection bag attached. This could pose a danger of flying debris." Then, just two paragraphs down, it says, "WARNING! Never use the scarifier without the thatch collection bag securely fitted." This is complete and utter BS. First, it is VERY difficult to install that little bag in the tiny slots in the plastic housing. Second, the bag fills up in less time than it takes to fill a beer stein at a good tap. Third, the machine works just fine without the bag -- the build up inside the plastic housing gets impacted, mostly it works its way out with no help, but sometimes you need to lift up the back a bit to allow the thatch to escape, but it's easy, and THERE IS NO FLYING DEBRIS! At the point where you need to lift the back end, believe me, there is plenty of moss/thatch to catch anything being flung back by the blades. (5) The hinged plastic back cover which is raised to install the collection bag (if you are dumb enough to use the bag) was packed cattywampus with one side held higher than the other. Over time, sitting in the box, the cover got warped -- now, when balled up thatch escapes from the housing, it lifts up this door a bit, and one side sometimes skootches over, out of its groove, and the small rear wheel hits it and makes a clicking noise. No biggie, you can just let it click, or move it only takes a second to lift it and move it. But sooner or later I need to find a way to hold the cover in place. OK, now for the good, and I mean GREAT! This little machine sounds like a vacuum cleaner on low, you can use it Sunday morning without waking the neighbors. It runs very smoothly, and cool -- I used it for 20 minutes straight for my first test, at the "zero" setting (the middle wheel-height setting) That is the minimum scarifying height. [I couldn't go deeper because of the huge amount of moss in my lawn.] There was no heating, minimal stalling, no problems, just LOTS AND LOTS OF MOSS AND THATCH (two "haystacks" worth). After raking that up, I ran it for 45 minutes continuously on a larger area -- same results -- cool, quiet, and row upon row of moss and thatch that looked like a plowed field. After raking up the result into stacks and bagging it all, I then re-did the same area again, at right angles to the first run, but again on the zero setting. AND I GOT TWO MORE HUGE STACKS OF MOSS AND THATCH! And remember, this was using the shallowest possible setting for scarification. Please see the attached pictures. Amazingly, with all the material scratched up and bagged, the area still had quite a bit of grass. I'll use a moss killer to poison any remaining bits of moss, and then I'll apply fertilizer and some grass seed to improve the lawn for next spring. I only finished de-thatching an area 30' by 50'. The result filled a large yard-waste bin full to overflowing, even stuffing it tight. It will take me weeks to finish the job, but that isn't the fault of this machine. It's the gathering and disposal of all the moss that will take the time. I can't tell you how long this machine will last. I've only used it for about two hours. It appears to be strong and healthy. I don't like plastic much, but the housing is thick and tough. If I only graded on performance, I'd have given the Sun-Joe SIX stars. I gave it four only because of the stupid bag, the manual, and the minor assembly problems.
