MTD Optima O38VO Petrol Scarifier

Keep your lawn in an enviably healthy and verdant condition with this quality, 38cm petrol-powered scarifier from leading US brand, MTD!

It’s is equipped with a series of robust, high-grade steel blades, the working-depth of which can be adjusted via a convenient handlebar-mounted lever – with a higher setting, you’ll be able to carry-out lighter-duty moss and thatch removal, which will enable your lawn to breathe and thrive; with a lower setting selected, the blades will cut almost invisible slits in the turf to enable air and moisture to penetrate the root network.

The MTD Optima O38VO Petrol Scarifier is powered by a ThorX 55H engine; a 179cc four-stroke unit with a cord minder for easy starting, and a dual-stage air filter and cast-iron cylinder sleeve for durability.

An overhead-valve configuration delivers a substantial cut in emissions and fuel consumption; a muffler works to reduce noise for a more enjoyable working experience.

Thanks to its capacious 50-litre debris bag, the MTD Optima O38VO will enable you to get the job done in one pass with no need to rake-up when you’ve finished.

Its lightweight build (39kg) and large-diameter wheels make it easy to push, even on rough ground; its fully foldable Ergo handle ensures it will take up minimal room in your garage or shed.

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
