[Amazon.ca] GreenWorks 27022 10 Amp 14" Corded Dethatcher - $149

Got a CCC hit on the Greenworks unit and watching it the last few weeks. Flucuated from 284 to 262 to 214 now to 149. Missed the sale from a few weeks ago. Understanding these will go on clearance near the end of the season however at 149 hard to pass up. Consistently better reviews than the SunJoe (belt will slip) and the WORX unit (bag is useless).

Not sure how long $149 will last, so buy now and think later.

I still can't wrap my head around why these forums go nuts for this specific GreenWorks branded machine when the identical one goes for $129.99 regularly at Canadian Tire. They share identical parts and is made by GreenWorks.

I bought this from Walmart about a week and half ago for $148. It works well. I was hoping to get the newer sunjoe but didn’t feel like waiting for the price drops and shipping times.

Isn't a scarifier just another word for a dethatcher?

"A lawn scarifier, sometimes referred to as a 'dethatcher', is a garden tool that is designed to cut through the soil, helping to remove dead moss and other debris like grass cuttings."

The scarifier creates grooves or cuts in the soil - the dethatching tines pull the grass thatch up. This unit has two attachments.

Yep still waiting for HD to ship the Sunjoe I ordered last week. No rush though as I won't need it anytime soon as I already dethatched manually with my dethaching rake.

I must say I picked this up 2 months ago during the last sale at Canadiantire, it's an excellent product, was able to go over 900 sqft of lawn in 20min, got a bag and a half of thatch. Be sure to watch youtube videos on how to operate these without breaking the things that pull out the thatch as they can bend and break off if you turn the machine during operation. Very happy with my purchase.

Yeah, I'm on the fence if I want to pay for this to use once or twice a year vs raking. I did my new lawn already with the rake, aerated, and laid seed and fertilizer, and this will take up space unused for 99% of the year. Maybe buy one for the neighbourhood, but not sure if even that is worth it.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

I dunno man. Not sure how you can call it identical when they look pretty different

I found the bag to be useless. Unless you want to empty it every 10 feet. Just rake it all up at the end.

Just as I see fit...usually just every spring but I could have done in the fall last year for sure.
