A Vertikutierer is garden equipment. With the Vertikutieren a rotary spring steel measurer or feathers/springs cuts perpendicularly into the soil. The Vertikutiergut (Moos, died grasses, etc.) is put down behind the equipment or gathered in the catch bag. The wave is propelled usually by an electric motor. For larger surfaces a petrol engine is more practical. The cut depth can be stopped either over the height of the Rades or the change of the measurer wave. A depth from 3 to 5 mm is recommended. That is sufficient, in order to remove the felt layer, without harming thereby the lawn.
