Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cutter71 works better than I thought it would--great little dethatcher. We will see how it holds up int the years to come,but right now it's the best.
It all worked easy and as advertised. Did a good job on the lawn saved a lot of manual raking

Was not easy for me to assemble took to store, they were very helpful and did it for me. However before I could finish my project the dethatcher started to fall apart.

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 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 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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fish Shipped w/ broken part
Unfortunately, the item was shipped with the adjuster handle on one side broken. What was INTERESTING was that the broken handle was out side of the bag that the main thatcher was in. It looked like someone had placed it there as you would if you were returning something. Fortunately, I'm a little industrious and basically tie-wraped the adjuster in place and the machine worked very good. I don't see this as a bad reflection on HD, they are great. However, I went on agri-fab webpage and tried to order parts which seems to be locked up. Then I called them. Nobody was home. However, this was a Sunday. But I should have been able to order the parts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bobscof Dethatcher works well but is fragile
This dethatcher has good reviews so I bought it. Although it would work great on newer lawns, my lawn is older and has tree roots coming to the surface. I read the directions which said to avoid rocks, sidewalks, etc., but there was no warning about vegetative matter such as tree roots. Within two minutes of starting on my lawn I started seeing parts of the dethatcher breaking and falling off. After a few more minutes, half the row of tines was gone. The problem is the plastic parts which hold the tines. The motor is powerful, but the plastic can't absorb the shock of hitting something more rigid than grass. I quickly returned it to Home Depot for a refund.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by drgothmog Works for me so far
It is 18" (not 14") which is great. Have to put it on the lowest setting and walk slowly but renting a machine is $40 (which really tears up my lawn .... this is more gentle, slower, but does a good job) and then pay someone $100 or so to rake everything up. Because this doesn't kick up so much dirt I can mow up the thatch. Mowing after the rental gas thatcher clogged up my air filter & dirtied the carb really bad. I just did about 500 sq ft. Doing the rest of the yard on the weekend. Takes more of my time but will pay for itself in less than 2 thatches.
Fast delivery as well.
