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

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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thatch rake is the same as the True Temper Adjustable rake sold on Amazon for quite a bit more money. This rake absolutely does what it is supposed to do and is very durable. The question is whether a person uses it properly and is willing to spend the time, but it is a great thatch rake. I find that you do not have to work hard with the rake. Just use very short strokes and repeatedly move it through the grass and it will do what it is supposed to do. The short, easy strokes allow you to stand up straight the whole time and not work yourself harder than need be. I can pull gently for a few short strokes over the same area and it will do the job without as much pulling out of green grass. That said, this rake takes time to get a lawn done. I prefer to do it spread out over many days. The rake seems to work fine if the grass is dry or a little wet. I have never had to wipe off any grass that was caught up in the blades with my hands. Just push the blade forward on the ground and it always come right off. If it does not completely dislodge it, the rake does tend to pull out crab grass and other weeds to be exposed. I just snipped them with some shears. My lawn mower never catches them because they lay flat out on the ground. But the thatch rake pulls them up and sometimes completely out, dependent on how rooted the weed is. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use October 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is more than a rake for de-thatching lawns. 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. October 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool - Saves Time Already used it several times and it reduces time to do jobs. Easy to use, and I didn't realize just how much it could do, and how easy it was to use. I always avoided buying it in the past because I thought it was similar to something I already had, but it really wasn't. Great buy. September 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this thatch rake did exactly what it was designed to do! We look forward to using this rake again and again! October 6, 2016
