Picked up a real bargain today in my local B & Q - these Mountfield RE 300 Electric Lawn Rakers are reduced from 79.99 to just 39.99

I asked the cashier and she said they were actually changing this model so the deal should be rolled out all over B & Q branches.

I can confirm i cut my grass then used this today and its done a Fantastic job - Mountfield are a good brand for garden equipment.

Yes correct although probably best to do it in September now

yes it removes all the dead grass and cr#p that the lawn doesnt need - it then promotes a much healthier growth for the lawn.

if you go up and down the lawn it puts stripes in and makes your lawn look like a proffessional cricket/football field !!

Wouldnt agree with that comment - there are 3 settings on the machine - i believe you are meaning to scarifier as you would at both the start and end of the season - on this machine you are advised to only use "setting 1" at the start and end of the summer / autumn season........

However if you use settings 2 or 3 on the machine then you can simply use this to remove all dead grass from mowing the lawn DURING the summer - promoting a much better lawn.

Thanks for the replies, I'll pop in to my local tomorrow.
I bought one of these for £39 about a month ago from b&q Solihull.

They are brilliant, the only downside is they are too good for the size of the collection basket which needs emptying a lot.

Our lawn is looking better already, great for removing moss

Your call - I personally wouldnt do it now. If I do this I always cover the whole area with grass seed. Don't know about where you are but with a hosepipe ban and warm temperatures this week it might be a bit futile personally. If your grass has a lot of moss (this should be dead prior to doing this as the spores will spread otherwise) and dead grass you will be left with a bare looking garden even on the highest setting!!

Bought mine this morning from Redditch branch. It's far easier than using manual rake. Nice find (heat added)
Just picked the last one up from the Somercotes store. Thanks OP.
Nice find!
