    Hi

    My main domain gets outrank by a subfolder e.g http://www.hats/infoabouthats where this /infoabouthats outranks all other pages on my website and are showed on 6th place on google for main keywords. Can i redirect some other pages and get their linkjuice and get on top with this subfolder? anyone have any experience with this?

    Home Page:
    Is the infoabouthats also containing your keyword?
    Usually this happens because the infoabouthats page has more content/relevancy/trust/authority than the other pages.

    But again, Google may also have wrong algorithm.

    What I will do in your situation is not redirect the info page, but change the info page so it is authority and can have value too. The point of ranking is not ranking your main page, but ranking your site. For example, for keyword "aircraft news" in my site, the top will be the mysite.com/aircraft-news instead of mysite.com.
