Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lawn22 Very effective
This product is easy to use and does a great job. I went over my lawn 3x and picked 8 bags of dead grass. For the price you can't beat it. It is light weight and easy to put together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug The Agri-Fab 14 in Electric Dethatcher is great!
We were very impressed with this product. Worked as advertised. Light weight and easily removable at a fair price. The wife also insisted on trying it. It helps for the one not operating the machine to guide the extension cord away from the machine. We needed to go max depth and twice around the yard. Back to a good looking lawn again. Thanks

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gunny73 Good product for small projects
It is a good product if used for short periods of time or small lawans. I have a large lawn and if I use it for 20 min and then let it rest for 10-15 to cool off its fine. Also don't stress it out with really thick lawns, just go over it it several times, don't use it when the grass is heavy or wet. Its really a light weight/duty tool

Used the electric de-thatcher about 10 times and was happy with it. Now it slowed down and stopped. I tried again later and it ran slowly with sparks showing through the plastic housing. Then it stopped again. Don't know if it's worth spending $80 for a new motor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArizonaThatcher Great Little Thatcher
I have a tiff lawn in the southwest, and I was worried this wouldn't have the power or ability to deal with the thick mat that develops each year. Wrong! I had to use the lowest setting, but it pulled five bags of thatch out of 1500 sq ft. I did it in sections - I didn't want to over heat the motor. It did great. The whole lawn was done and bagged in about 75 minutes including mowing after thatching. This isn't an industrial grade machine, but for my yard - awesome. The small spring tines on the thatcher do a better job than the machine I used to get at the rental center.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by George Good value, great time saver.
Dethatched approximately 1000 sq. ft. in a couple of hours. My lawn is primarily Kentucky Blue Grass and varieties of fescue. The middle setting worked the best; the lowest setting nearly scraped my yard bare.
The only caveat is that each side height setting is spring loaded which does make for easy adjustments. However, a bump in the yard may also cause one side to jump to the lowest setting which may not be noticed until the thatch is raked. I have some nearly bare spots when that happened, although I expect the grass will recover. Overall, very pleased!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pjdee A little machine worth having
The Agri-Fab dethatcher really work well. The unit is light weight, and easy to use (you don't push it around; it pulls you around!). I thought dethatching would be an all day job, but I finished 5000 sq. ft. in 3 hours. Since the machine is rated for 1000 sq. ft, I gave it a "break" after doing about a quarter of the lawn while I bagged.
This little machine really makes a normally unpleasant chore a breeze!

After years of back-breaking hand raking, I found this power dethatcher. It cleaned our lawn in less than one hour and lifted two full barrels of dead grass. Re-seeding and fixing our lawn will now be a breeze. The unit is lightweight, easy to use and powerful. There's no heavy pushing, it's almost self-propelled. Highly recommended if you take pride in doing your own lawn.
