Recieved my dethatcher in half the time they posted on the website. the unit was easy to assemble and install on my non agri-fab sweeper. Total assembly and install time of 20 minutes. Things to improve would be to increase the number of tines to 16 to bring them closer together. Also the hook to keep it out of place needs to be easier to install. I had to dismantle my tow bar to put it in place. All in all it is a good product but a little over priced.

Fantastic addition to the lawn sweeper. Stores up and out of the way when not in use, and easy to release when desired.

The Dethatcher was easy to assemble and very easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to Dethatch there lawn and has a pull behind sweeper.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MoMo Rakes very well.
This rake was easy to assemble and attach to my 48" yard sweeper. When I used it I had no problem filling up the basket with dead grass. It's a great tool and great investment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubba225488 This is great.
I hooked this item up to a craftsman lawn sweeper without any problem. Now when I sweep my yard I just let the dethatcher down. Otherwise it hooks so it is up out of the way. I like this because it is on one implement and does a good job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nighthawk7169 Great Dethatcher for the price!
You can't go wrong with this product. It has a wheel in the front that sets the depth and prevents it from flipping under. 2 passes with the sweeper and dethatcher and your done. Why didn't i buy this last year instead of raking by hand!!!

I bought the Agri-Fab 42" Dethatcher to attach to my Agri-Fab Smart Lawn Sweeper. It bolts up nicely to the sweeper.
Only problem I have with the Dethatcher is that it does not do a good of a job of getting up matted leaves from lawn(which was the reason I got it). I set mower deck to cut 1" height (so that height of grass would not be an issue) criss crossed the cutting pattern even went opposite directions, still leaves matted on lawn. I spent way to much time (4 times over whole lawn) trying to get all of the matted leaves and old thatch up. Oh, it gets some of it up, but not much, at least in my case. I assume that the tines are weak in tension or the weight of the dethatcher is not enough for it to really get down and get matted material up and off your lawn. If you are looking for something to lightly comb your lawn, then this product is for you, If you want to get up embedded thatch and matted leaves, you need to look at another product. I will keep it attached to my sweeper and engaged, maybe by fall it will get all of the thatch and matted leaves up. This is my review on my personnal experience only.
Not to thrilled about the Agri-Fab Smart Lawn Sweeper either. There is Nothing Smart About It At All, At least I haven't seen it, nor does it tell you what is smart about it. So much could be done on improving the design of the sweeper. I have done a few modifications on my sweeper to make it work better for me. Hope this review helps you on your decision of your purchase.
