Summary: Have only used the machine up to now on the 3rd setting (there is one lower) but it shifted most of the thatch and dead moss that had accumulated over a decade in my front lawn! I will use it on the lowest (scarifying) setting in the Spring when the lawns have fully recovered from the summer drought. Having read most of the reviews before ordering, I'm certainly not disappointed , it's even manufactured in the UK !
Summary: I chose this model after reading other reviews. I was not disappointed at 74 years old I felt it was time that I retired my hand lawn raker (truth is I am too old not the raker) delivery was excellent and actually a day earlier than stated.putting it together was easy and I was pleased that it was quite light and easy to handle.To be on the safe side I used the highest setting and went down a step at a time.
Summary: I chose this rating because it was everything it said it was, and extremely easy to put together. I tried it on a very small piece of lawn, as it's not the time of year to scarify and it worked very well on all the settings. Also a good size collection box.
Summary: have now used this machine and was amazed at the amount of moss it removed from my lawn suprised that ther was any grass left but now rain has come grass seems to be filling in bare patches and starting to look good again will probably ned to put down some grass seed but i am very pleased with the machine only down side is the length of lead but no problem with extension.
Summary: Very pleased with the Bosch Lawnraker, it is so easy to use, light enough for my small female size to manage and the instructions were simple to follow. A good piece of equiptment which is also compact to store when not in use. I particularly like the ease of manouverbility, so easy to handle and does the job efficiently.
Summary: The Bosch name is very reputable. The machine requires some relatively simple assembly prior to operation. The bolts and wing nuts supplied should do the job, however, one of the bolts is too short and none of the wing nuts supplied would pick up the thread. I resolved this issue with the use of a hexagon nut instead. Upon assembly the collection box seems a bit flimsy and flexible.
Summary: Delivery was entirely satisfactory Asembly was not easy nor finally correct. The two bolts which secure the two parts of the handles were not long enough,Amazon provided a help number for Bosch, which was the wrong site. However they gave me the correct number, where having explained the problem said they'd send some replacement bolts to suit. When asked when I was told they're in the post.
Summary: Ordered the Lawnraker on line and delivery as usual with Amazon was very prompt. After unpacking and putting together it appeared that the 2 bolts which were to attach both parts of the handle together did not appear to be long enough as the wing nuts could not be tightened up. I telephoned Bosch Customer Services (not sure if they know there what customer services mean as the person I spoke to was somewhat very short and a little offhand).
Summary: Ordered this item as an early Christmas present as the weather has been so nice , I wanted to tidy up the garden.Arrived well packaged and pretty easy to put together. seems fairly light which makes it easier to push. Gave it a first go with the height adjusted one down just to make sure it raked the lawn, filled up 6/7 collecting boxes with moss, dead grass and various other bits, and my lawn area is only 70 x 30 feet.
