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.

  • 14.25 in. self-cleaning rake head (a pull and its full, a push and its clean)
  • 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

Answer: 
The head is mounted on a swivel that is secured by a thumbscrew in an arc shaped slot. Because it is in a slot you can change the angle of the head in relation to the handle. If you have the head lop-sided so one side is more angled than the other, you have a dual purpose rake, one side is more aggressive at raking lumps or dethatching, the other side is much less so. See my reviews for how to use it Read More

Answer: 
There is a wing nut on each side of the tines, you can unscrew them and change the angle of the rake. I'm no expert but in my experience, the more vertical the angle (90deg), the more it scarifies, with a shallower angle, it is more of a pulling.

I have mostly heavy moss in my "lawn". I can use moss killer, but then I have heavy DEAD moss. Will this rake pull the moss dead or alive?

The moss is so thick in places that even if I kill the moss, over-seeded grass will sprout and quickly die because the roots are in the moss, not rooted in the soil. Will this rake pull moss out of what little existing grass there is?

Answer: 
Depends on the kind of moss and how dry or wet it is. I have found that if the moss is not very fibrous, when it is wet the rake will slice through it rather than pull it out. Otherwise it should do a good job.

19-Tine Adjustable Thatch Rake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 54.
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 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love it Totally removes thatch. Easy push pull action. Cleared entire backyard ruined by fungus and heat this summer. Just wish there was someone else, other than me, at the handle end of the rake.

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!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please rethink your plan to buy this excellent thatch rake I humbly suggest that you reconsider your purchase of this thatch rake. If you are already here you probably already know your other options...power rake rental, buy a dethatching mower, etc....and have already made the decision that these are lesser options because of price or logistics or you have a small yard or whatever. Fine, but consider this. I have a relatively small yard...maybe 800-1000 square feet. Thoroughly thatching with this rake and weeding took me upwards of 14 hours. Yes, my yard was in relatively bad shape and yes it was hot so I had to take some breaks, but still. I promise that at some point during the process you will reconsider your decision, so, take that opportunity now to consider if this is really something you want to take on. WITH THAT SAID, this rake held up fantastically to what was admittedly a LOT of use, so if you MUST get a thatch rake, I would get this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Great work out too! Easy to use, just push forward to get thatch off the rake. Best to use for small areas unless you plan to work on small areas at a time. If you have not thatched in a while do not worry about how much comes up, plan on reseeding afterwards. Only issue is make sure you tighten the adjustable screws as I lost a small piece that was loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job So, it's a thatch rake and a pretty good one. Yes, it's a LOT of work and elbow grease, but it worked as advertised. Be prepared to expend a lot of sweat equity and stop frequently to clean the "self cleaning" rake head!
