Scarifying is an important part of lawn care. It helps to fight the notorious thatch which is forms on every lawn and blocks the supply of air, water and nutrients to the roots.
Correct scarifying will let your lawn breathe again, but don't forget you will need to reseed blank spots and nourish the soil with fertiliser and water.
The Cub Cadet XC1 series apply the power you need to remove this thatch and let sunlight, air and water reach the soil again.
The XC1 series also feature blades and springs which means you get two functions in a single machine - aerating and scarifying.
BLADES AND SPRINGS
The XC1 models have 15 or rather 17 flail double blades and 14 or rather 16 double springs. This combination allows for two functions in one machine – for aerating and scarifying. If you would like to aerate the soil of your garden, use the higher position with a gentle touch of the blades and springs on the surface of the soil. If there is the need to scarify, set the position of the blades and springs to a 3 mm working depth.
WORKING DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
Working depth adjustment The working depth of the Cub Cadet scarifier XC1 can easily be changed centrally.
REMOTE TRANSPORT POSITION
With the lever on the handle you can switch from transport to working position conveniently from behind the unit.
