At the time of writing, the Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator is our most popular scarifier due to its excellent value for money.
At Garden Equipment Review we have a range of scarifiers and aerators to suit every gardener’s needs. I personally prefer the petrol models as I like the idea of being able to work anywhere and not have to worry about an electric cable.
Over the last few years, the lawns have taken quite a battering, due to the dry summers. I have to say that lawns are extremely resilient and can quickly be repaired and with some tender care and quickly get back into shape. After the wet winter, many people are suffering from huge amounts of moss and thatch in their lawn. This is where a scarifier and aerator can help you.
It’s always good to give your lawn a spring and autumn feed. There are many different lawn feeds available. My preferred type being in granular form with a mix of a balanced fertiliser and broadleaf weed control.
If you’re looking to have that perfect looking lawn, the Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator is certainly a good starting point.

Cobra S40C 2-in-1 Petrol Scarifier And Aerator
The Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator is a 16 inch (40 cm) machine that quickly covers the area of your lawn. Although compared with mower sizes, the machine is not a massive width. We have to remember that aerating is something that we will probably only do a couple of times a year.
Four Stroke Petrol Engine
With a powerful 212 cc Cobra 4 stroke overhead valve engine, the engine has plenty of power to cope with all your lawn care needs. The engine is a recoil start engine that offers excellent economy and quiet running. As I mentioned earlier in this post, I find the petrol scarifiers much more versatile and advantageous over the electric models where you have a trailing electric lead.
It never fails to amaze me how much thatch and moss comes out of a lawn when you scarify your lawn. The Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator comes with a 45 L collector which will fill up extremely quickly in normal circumstances.
One method that I have used when scarifying a lawn is to scarify without using the collection box. And then, if you have available, use a ride-on mower with a collector to collect all the thatch and moss out of your lawn. I appreciate that not everyone will be able to do this, but it is certainly a laboursaving way of making good use of time.
The Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator has a dial-type adjuster. This easily adjusts the height of the machine which can be varied from -15 mm to + 5 mm.
One of the great features of the Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator is the fact that it comes with two different cartridges. The first cartridge is a 16 springtine scarifier and the second cartridge is a 17 bladed cartridge. The cartridges can very easily be switched over, from one to the other.
The fold-down handles are very useful for transport and for storage. At 39 kg machine can be lifted into a vehicle without too much difficulty.
To have a perfect lawn takes time and effort and work. The Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator can definitely help to assist you in having that perfect lawn. Many people do not trouble to scarify their lawn at all, however, regular scarifying and aerating can really transform a lawn.
The Cobra S40C 2-in-1 petrol scarifier and aerator is a push machine that comes with a two-year warranty. It is presently our bestselling scarifier.
