Even though this E401 is the smallest dethatching machine in the ELIET range, it is capable of providing outstanding performance. The performance of this dethatching machine is often tested in many common applications, for example, when it is rented. Its robust construction is then also a guarantee for its durability. The blade shaft is located within a thick steel housing in order to protect bystanders from any flying chippings.
VERTICAL BELT TENSION
Problem-free operation was the point of departure for developing the vertical belt tension. Thanks to this system, the belt retains its natural shape even when it is operating. This virtually eliminates wear on the belt, thus significantly extending its operating life.
INFINITELY VARIABLE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The working depth is typically 2 mm. At this speed, virtually no braking is applied to the blades so that they can operate at full speed and lift up moss and thatch from the lawn surface. As the blades do not cut through the roots, this greatly reduces the time required by the lawn to recover after dethatching. Accurate and correct depth setting implies a very fine adjustable depth adjustment. To this end, the front wheels of the E 501 Pro feature an infinitely variable adjustment. This enables the same depth to be set across the entire blade shaft.
REAR WHEELS DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
ELIET guarantees that the Permanently Sharp Blades™ are not worn down, even after operating for more than 100 hours. The depth adjustment on the front wheels is inadequate to fully wear down the entire length of the blade. The E750 therefore also has a rear wheels depth adjustment.
Work comfort means that you perform the work with a minimum of effort. In this respect, ELIET pamper the operator of the E501 PRO. Large wheels with light aluminium rims running on tyres with a supple natural rubber tread ensure that this machine glides across the lawn. Each wheel is equipped with two large-size ball bearings. These heavy duty wheels are able to withstand the dusty conditions in which these machines have to operate. The wide wheel tread minimizes the risk of wheel rut formation on wet lawns.
WHEELS WITH MUD SCRAPERS
If dethatching takes place in the spring on a swampy lawn, the newly raked moss tends to stick to the wheels so that the machines move up and down when crossing the lawn, with this having a clearly visible effect on the result of the raking. To remedy, ELIET have fitted scrapers to the wheels of its professional dethatching machines. Any dirt that sticks to the wheels is immediately removed from the wheels.
Although gardeners usually wear professional working clothing and protective footwear, ELIET do not take any risks when safety is involved. The wide rubber safety guard at the rear of the machine retains all dust, sand and any stones that are thrown up out of the ground by the blades. The deflector is suspended on a chain and passively obeys each steering command. Moreover, you can suspend the deflector at the correct height, according to the thickness of the moss layer that appears from underneath the dethatching machine.
