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!

I bought this to distribute horse manure over my pasture. I'm pulling it with a riding mower. Just want to say it does a great job.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by shanker Pain to assemble
I don't know what people are talking about when they say this is easy to assemble. It took me almost two hours because I couldn't figure out the pictures in the book. They also did not include all of the parts and I had to call the company to ship me the missing parts. They did FedEx the parts but it took two days. That was a hassle because it sat around half assembled in the garage until all of the parts came.
I thought the parts were labled well but the directions were confusing. I'm not a novice, I just think you have to think like an engineer to assemble this thing. Haven't used it yet but it looks sturdy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ronnie Good product for the price
This dethatcher worked well although a little difficult to adjust weight wise to get the pressure I wanted. Once it was adjusted it worked well and brought up the old dead grass and leaves that was keeping some spots in my yard from growing good. Overall a good purchase that will hopefully keep my yard healthier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sdog works as designed
Assemblied fairly easily. Just pay attention to which side of the main unit the tow arms attach to. This unit will dig up sod that is not rooted well. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Overall I was happy with the results. I reseeded the areas that got torn up and now have much better turf in those spots.
