Are the teeth replaceable?

Asked by: alden
There are no "teeth" but I assume you mean the springs, and yes they are. The following HD link shows up in frequently bought together section: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Power-Care-Replacement-Springs-for-the-Arnold-Universal-Dethatching-Blade-H-RS-12/100146723

Do I take it off after and use a different blade all summer long?

Asked by: Mike
Your question suggests some explaining is required for everyone considering this item...the dethatching blade only dethatches...it is not a cutting blade. In other words, you attach it to your mower, use it to "lift" and therefore separate the thatch from the subsoil surface. Then you should remove the blade and re-install your regular mowing blade. At this time you may be able to "collect" the thatch by mowing as you normally would. If the thatch is too thick/deep, you may need to rake it up. If your mower has a grass catcher, much of the thatch will be collected in the grass catcher, however, thick/deep thatch will likely need raking or several passes with the normal mowing blade.

There was a lot of positive feedback about this blade and for $10 I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. a couple things that I did not see in any of the feedback that make a difference: 1) Despite not being an actual "blade" this will cut your grass as you use it. So if your lawn is long you will need to cut it first otherwise your mower will bog down 2) The metal tine that hangs down that actually dethatchs only hangs down about 1/2" below the deck of your mower. This means you have to put the deck down to almost the lowest setting in order to get to the thatch. my deck has 9 positions (1/2" increments). I usally mow one inch from the highest level. I had to dethatch at one inch from the lowest level. I could have moved it down 1/2" more to see how that would work, but was afraid over really tearing up the heatlhy grass as the deck was already so low. 3) With #2 in mind, you really have to cut your lawn short. If you have any variations in the surface of your lawn (mounds, bumps, etc) expect to hit dirt and leave a pretty nasty divot in your lawn 4) Do not back the mower up while using this. its a good way to break the tines and you will most likely hit the mower flap on the rear of your mower that protects your feet 5) Taking all of this into consideration, I "mowed" my lawn 3 times: once to get the grass to a level I could dethatch without bogging the mower down, once to dethatch, and finally, once to pick up the thatch and clippings. The blade did dethatch some of the areas of my lawn nicely. Ironically, I found that it did a nice job dethatching the areas that had healthy, thick grassy areas already. However, in the barren, thinner areas of heavy thatch did not come out much better than when I started.

I'm wary of "universal" fits, but when I put this blade on my Craftsman mower I realized all it needed was a scant millimeter of glaze filed off so the mounting pins would set. This blade certainly beats hand raking. Though I did have to go over a few really thick places more than once — each time lowing the blade another 1/2 inch. I should have bought this blade years ago!

Cheap alternative to de-thatching lawns, just don't leave the mower in one place with the motor running, you will have a ring in the lawn, so keep moving and be prepared to do some raking afterwards, or swap back to the blade and vacuum up the debris if not too much.

I have been using this attachment for about ten years on my old craftsman mower. Obviously, I like it for what I use it for. I am a bit of a yard nut, and I like to keep my bermuda nice and low. This device will take everything up down to the dirt or whatever you have. I use it in early spring, just as the grass is beginning to grow. I cut the yard low to remove as mush brown grass as possible. Then the spring blade goes on to finish the job, leaving only a fine dusting on the ground. You can leave it on the ground or bag it up with your mower. Either way, the result is that you will get a greener yard and sooner than you otherwise would. The grass itself is not greener, but by getting all the brown out, it will appear much greener. It is the same effect that you get if you burn off the lawn, but it's legal and wont get the fire department called on you. Don't worry about the yard looking "destroyed" as some have said. It comes back quickly because you are letting the sun get to the ground and you are not killing the grass. That is why you need to wait until the grass is ready to grow. This attachment will not leave the grass and take the thatch; it takes everything. I suspect that if you truly have a thatch problem, you may want to rent a verticutter. By the way, of course the springs wear out; they are scraping the ground. Just buy the replacements.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This did absolutely nothing. Don't wast your time. Tried it at different height settings no luck. Pulled out more good grass than anything else.
