Incorporating a high powered Honda engine gives the dethatcher a high working efficiency allowing you to dethatch large grass areas with ease. Maintenance is simple and can be performed by most handy people. If that's not your cup of tea then the de-thatcher can be serviced and maintained at any mower shop. The two year warranty through Paddock™ will give you peace of mind. However if parts are ever required we stock a full range. Honda GX160's are a popular engine and parts & service can be sourced easily. Spare blades are readily available through Paddock Machinery and are easily replaced.

Paddock™ has designed and built the dethatcher for Australian conditions and with the user in mind. Vertical spinning blades are engaged smoothly via a centrifugal clutch system operated with a single hand actuated lever. With four independently turning wheels the verticutter is easily turned and maneuvered. The Paddock™ quick fold handles make storage and transport a breeze.

Why de-thatch your lawn?

Thatch is a built up layer of dead and living grass matter such as leaves, roots and stems. This layer sits beneath the grass blades but on top of the soil surface. Depending on the environment and time of year the thatch build up can have detrimental effects on your lawn regardless of how much you fertilise or treat the grass. Traditional mowing is unable to remove thatch and further adds to the problem. Aerators will alleviate the symptoms of thatch giving some access to the soil but for the best results a dethatching machine or power rake is recommended to remove the majority of thatch from the soil surface. This gives a longer lasting effect and improved results for your lawn.

Dethatching your lawn offers many advantages including:

  • Removal of thatch and reducing soil compaction
  • Increased access to the grass roots for moisture, air, fertiliser, food...
  • Easy plantation of seeds into the soil
  • Increased seed germination
  • Reduced weeds
  • Increased lawn density and appearance
