No. Scarifiers are, intrinsically, performing a more powerful, sophisticated version of raking and there are many machines that are included in the scarifier category, but that may have other names. These include…
- Powered Rakes - often Electric. They generally use sprung metal tines, not blades, to remove the moss and detritus and collect it in a rear or front mounted catcher.
- Dethatchers - some have high impact plastic tines
- Tow-Behind Dethatching Rakes - these use metal sprung tines
You will also come across scarifying cartridges, such as are used in the excellent Allett machines shown below.
