          Get your lawn in top green shape with the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe AJ801E 13 in. electric scarifier + lawn dethatcher. Powered by a robust 12 Amp motor, the Dethatcher Joe rakes a 13 in. wide path in a single pass to get your job done fast. Enhancing its raking ability is AirBoost technology, which maximizes thatch pickup with spring steel tines that stay sharp longer for reliable performance. Use the 5-position depth control knob to tailor the raking depth from -0.4 in. (10 mm below the soil) to 0.4 in. (10 mm above the soil), depending on your lawn’s scarifying or dethatching needs. Scarifying your lawn at regular intervals cuts grass roots and encourages growth for thicker, healthier turf. Thatch is a dense mat of roots, stems and grass clippings that accumulates on lawns over time, blocking the flow of water, oxygen and vital nutrients. It is important to periodically remove thatch in order to keep your lawn green and healthy. While ordinary manual rakes are tiresome to use and not very effective, the electric Dethatcher Joe starts instantly with the push of a button and easily gets the job done without polluting the atmosphere with toxic carbon emissions. No gas, oil or tune-ups make the Sun Joe Dethatcher Joe your green choice for greening your lawn.

          Love it. My lawn always needs "thatching" in the Spring. It is a dreaded task that must be done, but now it is a breeze! This is the perfect portable small unit for thatching. Easy to clean. Nice quiet motor. Brightly colored. No need to run to the gas station and fill up gas cans, i always have the power at home to use it. No smelly fumes either. Easy to use. Lightweight. There is nothing but good things about this little powerhouse. You will not be disappointed.
          Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Great Engine, Light Weight

          Im not one thats into air cleaners to much but had to try this as we have been keeping our doors closed alot lately due to our AC running often with this heat wave. My conclusion:
          Compared to other air purifiers I've used, this one easily takes the cake. The filters are stupidly easy to swap in and out (Initial setup was around two minutes to peel off plastic protective films and put everything together). The unit is nearly noiseless. On low or Sleep mode, I couldn't hear a fan at all over the ambient noise of a home. I've caught myself on multiple occasions actually waving my hand over the unit to double check that it's still running - it's that quiet. I've spent four nights now with it on

The filters are stupidly easy to swap in and out (Initial setup was around two minutes to peel off plastic protective films and put everything together). The unit is nearly noiseless.

I've caught myself on multiple occasions actually waving my hand over the unit to double check that it's still running - it's that quiet. I've spent four nights now with it on Sleep mode inches from my head and it's so quiet I'll hit it getting out of bed. Medium speed has about the same noise as a normal desktop computer - it's something you can barely detect, but it's a soft whirl that quickly blends into the background. High speed picks up the noise to a detectable level, but if it's behind a corner or otherwise not in direct earshot, quickly blends into the background. Turbo speed, as called out in other reviews, is fairly noisy, but I'd put it at about the level of a standard HEPA unit on Medium speed. You'll easily hear it, even in a different room. I keep Turbo mode to setting in a room when I leave the house or will have the doors closed. A definite differance in the air in my home overall.

          An amazing piece of equipment if i may say. I installed this the day after receiving it and was amazed on how easy it was to do. Partly because the one it replaced was about the same size and ducting and electrical were already there. It is located above the person in the shower stall. The sensor on this works like a charm. Just shortly after you start to take a shower this kicks in. The sensor does more than an amazing job. It will stay on for a few minutes after you end your shower to clear the air. This i like cause now i don't have to go back to the bathroom and turn the fan off as it is now automated. Overall, an awesome exhaust fan!

          When i received my tiller, it took me just one look at the box and knew this was the one. Tiller is very easy to assemble. Has 3 height positions, pull start, on/off switch and a nice size gas tank..Separate forward and reverse handles are easy to operate. Keep in mind that tiller is shipped with an oil bottle that MUST be put into the engine case as directed. After putting it together, adding oil and gasoline she was ready to be fired up. She started on the first pull, very impressive. I used this on my back yard to till for grass seed and i was very impressed on how fast we got it done. This is one machine that is a must to have if you have a nice size backyard and need to till from time Read More

          Used this phone this morning for the first time after letting the batteries charge overnight per the instructions. Extremely clear sound quality and the person i called said i sounded different, much clearer. Phone and base are of a very nice color match to the interior of my home. Has many features you would expect. Cordless expandable hand set is a super plus! I ordered additional handsets to expand the system as i am extremely satisfied with this, you will be too.
          Pros: Battery Length, Clear Instructions, Compact, Nice Design, Easy Installation, Lots of Features, Great Sound Quality
