Dethatching is a big job, as a landscape contractor wants to remove most of the moss and thatch from the lawn. However, ironically this creates even more clean-up work, which is the less attractive and time consuming part of this job.
However, now there is a solution. ELIET, the Belgian manufacturer of lawn scarifiers with more than 35 years of experience, is launching its C550ZR Collector on the market this spring.


The working depth is typically 2 mm. At this speed, virtually no braking is applied to the blades so that they can operate at full speed and lift up moss and thatch from the lawn surface. As the blades do not cut through the roots, this greatly reduces the time required by the lawn to recover after dethatching. Accurate and correct depth setting implies a very fine adjustable depth adjustment. To this end, the front wheels of the C550 Collector feature an infinitely variable adjustment. This enables the same depth to be set across the entire blade shaft.


If dethatching takes place in the spring on a swampy lawn, the newly raked moss tends to stick to the wheels so that the machines move up and down when crossing the lawn, with this having a clearly visible effect on the result of the raking. To remedy, ELIET have fitted scrapers to the wheels of its professional dethatching machines. Any dirt that sticks to the wheels is immediately removed from the wheels.


The impressive 55cm working width limits the number of rows to collect.


This traction allowed ELIET to rotate the blades in the opposite direction to the direction of travel, without loss of operator comfort or control. The contra-rotation results in improved removal and collection of material which is pulled out and thrown onto the collectiong auger increasing the efficiency of dethatching by 30%.

The extremely fine blades have the Permanently Sharp BladesTM technology that ensures minimum damage to the turf.



The “C” in the name of the machine is for “Collector”. Herein lies the innovation of the C550. The material that has been removed from the lawn is projected into a discharge channel by the blades. Inside this channel there is an Archimedean screw that carries the moss to the side of the machine. In this way, the moss is collected into a narrow row and on the next pass of scarification this row can be re-collected by the machine and then integrated into a new row along with the raked-up material from the second strip. In this way the C550ZR can collect the moss and thatch of each 1 m work-width into one row. This is obviously an enormous time saving for the landscaper in terms of clean-up.
