The STIGA SV 213 E lawn aerator and scarifier is powered by a 1300 W electric motor and has two interchangeable kits: 36 spring tines for aeration and 16 blades for scarifying. The working depth can be set to between -9 mm and +4 mm. Moss and residues are collected in the 40 litre rear collector. The SV 213 E can be used as a scarifier to work the surface of the soil or as a lawn aerator to make furrows in the soil, allowing water and oxygen to reach the grass roots and removing dead roots at the same time. This accelerates new shoot growth, creating the ideal conditions for a perfect and healthy lawn, with the further advantage of reducing the amount of moss while saving on fertiliser.
Developed for all gardening newbies or those gardeners who want to act quick and achieve a certain garden quality.
What do the two accessory tools (spring tines and blades) do?
When using the blades, you create grooves, which helps oxygen and water to reach the grass roots so they can grow better. With the spring tines, you work on the surface of the ground, removing a layer of dead grass, mould and organic matter found at the base of the blades of grass. This helps the soil to absorb water better and therefore encourages healthier and stronger grass growth.
Which seasons should the machine be used in?
The ideal times for treating the ground with this machine are spring and autumn.
Can I use the machine to remove moss?
Yes, using the spring tines allows you to clean up the ground, removing organic matter and any layers of moss.
Is the machine self-propelled or does it need to be pushed?
The machine is manually driven, but the movement of the rotors means the accessory tools (aerator or scarifier) help move it slowly forwards along the ground. This results in much easier movement for the user, with minimal effort.
