5.0 out of 5 stars Bigger than I expected - but very good!, 25 Sept. 2010

This review is from: Bosch AVR 1100 Verticutter Lawnraker (Tools & Hardware)
Ok so I wanted to improve my lawn from the yellow, sparse weed infested patch to a lush green bowling type surface! Earlier in the year I had hired an electric lawn rake which did a reasonable job of taking out the thatch, but for the repeated hire charges in the long term I thought it better to get something of my own, hence the verticutter.
It arrived and was very quick to put together, although I know there are other comments about the wing nuts and the collecting bin, I don't think they are such a big deal, but I can appreciate the comments. The thing that surprised me a bit was the overall size of the unit itself. I thought I was going to get quite a compact thing, smaller than a lawnmower, but it is not small at all, and is at least the same size as a Bosch Rotak lawnmower, so be aware of that! It does, however, fold down and the collecting bin unclips to store on top of the main unit as a sort of 'hat' when being stored in the garage, overall its not too much of an issue.
I used it last week, and it was a pleasure! It removed loads of crud out of the lawn and left nice stripes and lines where it dug into the soil. The collecting box does fill up quickly, but then I think it is supposed to if its doing the job right! The motor has no problem, and I can see me using this a few times a year to good effect. An excellent unit, with the usual Bosch build quality.
