The STIGA SV 415 E is an electric lawn scarifier which is simple and light to use. The SV 415 E has a 1500 W electric engine and two interchangeable operating modes: 44 spring tines for aeration or 20 blades for scarifying. The operating depth can be set from -13 mm to +4.5 mm, and the large and practical 50 litre bag collects the material and moss picked up. The SV 415 E can be used as an aerator for working the soil surface, whilst as a lawn scarifier it makes furrows in the soil, allowing water and oxygen to reach the grass roots removing dead roots at the same time. This process accelerates new shoot growth, creating the ideal conditions for a perfect and healthy lawn. An additional advantage is less moss and less need for 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.
