Feider FST200 PRO 2-in-1 petrol lawn scarifier
A scarifier is a great tool to own if you want your lawn to look good all year round. Unfortunately, many of us fail to ever scarify our lawns. What always amazes me is the amount of material that comes out of a lawn after it has been scarified.
I must admit that in my experience lawns vary a lot. Some of them are more prone to moss and thatch than other lawns. However, in my view, the process is well worth the effort if you want to have a good lawn. Owning a scarifier means that you can choose the best conditions to scarify your lawn.
The Feider FST200 PRO 2-in-1 petrol lawn scarifier certainly has plenty of power. The 212cc four-stroke air-cooled overhead valve engine develops 5 hp. This sort of power is normally found on commercial type scarifiers. The engine has a traditional recoil start system.
With an eight-stage adjustable working depth, the Feider FST200 PRO 2-in-1 petrol lawn scarifier has plenty of flexibility. Every lawn varies slightly, so it is important to have plenty of adjustments to match the conditions of the lawn. Adjustments to the height are made by a handlebar-mounted lever.
I am surprised that Fieder does not make the scarifier with a larger collector. The fabric collector is only 40 L which to my mind is not really large enough. It’s surprising how much moss and thatch comes out of the lawn when it is scarified. In many cases, it can be easier to rake up the moss and thatch, fortunately, moss and thatch are very lightweight. The other option is to collect with a large rotary mower on a high setting or lawn tractor. The latter is my preferred method, however, I appreciate that this is not possible for everyone.
At 34 kg, the Feider FST200 PRO 2-in-1 petrol lawn scarifier is reasonably lightweight to push. I must admit I would prefer a self-propelled model, however, in my experience it does seem that the majority of scarifiers are push models. The four wheels are all mounted on ball bearings which helps to make freewheeling easier.
If you like to see your lawn looking good, then owning a scarifier is a step in the right direction. Fieder is a French company that produces various budget machines for the garden. They continually appear to receive great reviews and offer a two-year warranty for peace of mind.
As I mentioned earlier in the post, there is a cheaper non-pro model available that is also worth a look. Once again, this machine also has good reviews.
If you are looking for a budget scarifier for your lawn, Fieder gives value for money. The two-year warranty is also another good plus point and of course the reviews.
