The straight-edged tines are designed to clear dead grass clippings (thatch) from beneath the surface of the lawn. This will allow air, sunshine, water and fertilizers in to keep the grass healthy. The flared-edge tines break crusted soil and pulverize dirt lumps to help prepare it for planting or reseeding.

  • Straight-edged tines on the rake head remove thatch (dead grass clippings) from the yard
  • Flared-edge tines are used to prepare soil for reseeding, fertilizing and cultivating the lawn
  • 54 in. North American hardwood handle for strength and durability

19-Tine Adjustable Thatch Rake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and so easy to use! My neighbor suggested I needed a thatch rake to improve my lawn. I was a bit nervous based on the reviews that the Ames rake would be effective but strenuous to use. I am pleased to report that this rake has been super light and rakes through my lawn as easy as a leaf rake. It pulls out tons of thatch and gets rid of lawn moss as well! Great product and made in the USA to boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best rake EVER!! I bought this yesterday, and used it when I got home, I only did about 300 sq ft. If you are lazy, DO NOT BUY THIS RAKE, you need to put some elbow grease into it, but not super hard to do either, you will break out a sweat. If you like moving, exercise regularly, you will LOVE this rake, it removes thatch like crazy and it keeps you moving and working all your muscles. Think about it, why use a very expensive machine, when you can have this for less than $30 and burn some serious calories while you're at it. Pictures are worth a thousand words, I was AMAZED at the amount of thatch this rake removed! So, for the folks out there who love to move around and get your hands dirty, YOU WILL LOVE THIS RAKE!!!

It does de-thatch very well, but if you're like me you don't do it any more often than once a year. I use it as my preferred go-to general purpose rake. I have a patch on my yard for growing greens, okra, beans... that kind of thing. I'm also very much into composting, so after each crop has had its day I will dig over the area and dig in the compost that's already completely rotted down into friable dirt to provide a good environment for the next planting. After digging I use my thatching rake to break up the clods and turn the area into a fine tilth ready for planting/sowing. It does a great job of reducing the lumps and making the whole area perfect for sowing. I also used it to prepare an area for sowing grass seed for a lawn. The area in question had stones and bits of roots and naturally I wanted to get rid of them. A little effort with this tool and I had a level area that, after sowing and growing and mowing, was as good as the green on a golf course. Sure, you have to put in the work but it's not hard work. The only problem is the roots and stones of a certain size sometimes get stuck between the tines, and sometimes bend them out of line. It comes with the territory, but it isn't difficult to bend the tines straight again. I love the adjustable head; keep one at a different angle to the other, so I can use one side to break up lumps and the other to "tickle" the dirt into a fine tilth. A great tool, and one I shall use for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get the job done This rake works very well. Take very short strokes when you begin using it. It will make you pant in the matter of minutes so make sure you take your time and don't expect to get the whole yard done in a short period of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mean Rake The rake does the job!!! You must be prepared to put in a little effort, but it's worth it. Removes the dead grass and aerates the lawn. You'll get a good workout using the rake and your lawn will love you for it. If you have a large lawn it is recommended to do a section at a time. Have used several times sense purchasing and will use for a long time to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works amazingly well. This thatch rake has a long handle which makes it easier to use. There are adjustable bolts that allow the tines to pivot. Be sure to properly adjust these bolts to the proper tension as I initially had these too loose and one of the bolt/nut assemblies fell off and I had to find it among the accumulated thatch. I found that using shorter strokes works better than using longer ones. The thatch easily comes off of the tines with the forward push and collects the thatch with the pulling movement. It works amazingly well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Rake a lot of Work! There was a prior rating that mentioned if you can avoid doing this yourself it would be highly recommended. This rake will do the job but if you have a large area it will take an extremely long time and you are apt to do a number on your body...meaning you will be sore for several days after. There was also mention of the screws coming loose on both sides of the rake and the tines bending...both true. It is a good rake for the money though and if you are in shape and a motivated do it yourselfer, this rake does the job.

However the results cannot be questioned. i have a large yard with a lot of moss and the rake pulled up everything that I have wanted to get rid of for years, granted it took all day. It is helpful to have someone help so you can take turns on the rows so you don't burn out. All in all lawn hasn't looked this good and been ready to reseed like this ever. Hoping that getting over this initial hump will make it easier for next year.
