Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Life saver!
I bought this after first trying to rake my lawn before seeding and realizing how much dead grass was coming up. I bought this thing, assembled relatively easy, and then used it with one 40-lb weight. I have a 1-acre yard, and on just half of the yard, I had removed 8 (yes, 8) heaping wheelbarrows full of dead grass! What a great tool at a great price. It worked great and gave me much relief that all the money I had spent on seed and an aerator would be worth it as now the seed can actually reach the dirt of my lawn and take root.

This is a good product; but assembly is difficult. Have it delivered to the store and ask for it to be assembled before pickup.

This 40 in.dethatcher is well worth the money. This unit is very capable of removing weeds,vine and dead grass with little or no effort. Assembly was easy and the unit seems to be well made. The key to successful dethatching is using a powerful lawn and garden tractor.

Wow a differance a dethatcher makes on the lawn. Purchased this hoping for the best and it more than exceeded my expectations. Added 2 blocks and it really pulled up a lot of stuff that was not good for the lawn. Outstanding product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ICanDoIt Pleasantly surprised
I was very skeptical about a cheap ($79) piece of equipment but I read other comments. It works extremely well. It pulled a ton of loose dead grass out of my yard. Had to use my bagger to get it all up. As an added benefit, I'm battling an invasion of Bermuda grass; It pulled the heck out of those long shoots, allowing me to keep mowing it over to thin it out.
It doesn't require any weight to be added, works just fine. I wouldn't recommend if you have and enjoy Bermuda grass.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jd09 Quality Issues
Bought this along with the Brinley-Hardy aerator. Dethatcher was missing the lever to raise and lower the unit as well as the plate that it locks into place. Extra trip to Home Depot where they opened another one and just gave me the pieces. HD was great, better than waiting for the parts in the mail. Wheels seem a little light duty, will update review after overseeding next weekend.

Unbelievable dethatching. Always rented a power dethatcher, left the lawn looking terrible, especially on high spots. Never expected for $80 I would get something that works so well. Did a great job with no additional weight added. About an hour to assemble and adjust and attach to my craftsman R1000 30 inch riding mower.
Outstanding construction and at such a price! Would never hesitate to buy a Brinley USA made product again!
