I'm around your age, female, with a bad back and bad balance and did 1/4 acre of yard that had not be detached since the early 1980s if at all. You do get a lot of exercise emptying the catch bag (I think I have a different model with a bag attachment). these are lightweight, make a silly noise, look cheap as all get out, but they work if you let it do the job and you just walk behind SLOWLY and lightly pushing it. but follow directions. if you set the tines too deep you will get lots of dirt/dust and other items blowing back and will wear out the tines prematurely. I just wish I could use it again, but doubt I will need to for a few years. It doesn't seem to harm the grass at all, but spits out the thatch. makes for great piles for composting. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. But when you first start to use it begin I would suggest starting out at a remote part of the lawn because it does require a little bit of practice to get the right adjustment level that's in synch with your 'style' of operation (i.e. walking speed, touch, thickness of thatch, etc). Also, this unit requires a good extension cord and will require some (handle) assembly.

Answer: 
There a 3 settings low #1 / medium #2 / high #3. The manufacturer says to use the highest #3 initially. Obviously, the height of your lawn will be a factor. I would recommend cutting the grass down, if more than 3" high and go with the highest #3 setting and take it from there. The actual tines are about an inch long, 2" including the mounting spring.

The work is done by some small hooks (approx. 2 inches) on a cylinder that keeps them spinning. There are three(3) height settings...it is recommended to use the highest setting (which worked great for me) and then as the hooks begin to wear you can lower the setting. The box also included a full set of replacement hooks that you can do yourself with a screwdriver and wrench.

I had to apply a couple times, and then the following year, I had much smaller areas (probably from seeds from the year before) and then the third year, gone or literally one or two individual plants popped up. This product is great and although you should follow the label instructions, I use a little more when mixing. But do not go crazy with it...too much and it will probably kill your good grass.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 142 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by User Friendly I had a Sears Craftsman dethatcher I used twice and it died. The Greenworks model is so much easier to use and clean. It really handles nicely and I really like the padded handle. I have severe arthritis and that really helps. Wish they would come out with a bag holder to purchase with the dethatcher-would make a good combo. I would recommend to anyone, like me with multiple medical problems. Easy to put together, easy to use and phone calls to customer service were handled efficiently as I had some issues I just wanted clarification on. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by At last... I didn't know there was a solution to the poor quality grass on my front lawn. The thought of manually de-thatching with tugging and raking was off-putting. The Greenworks 14" electric dethatcher changed that. It arrived within two days of an on-line order. Set-up was easy- basically, attaching upper and lower handles to the body of the dethatcher. I used the pre-set height adjustment of the tines and it worked fine. You push it like a lawn mower and dead grass/thatch just flows over the rubber flap in back. A grass catcher is not included so you will have to rake. The noise level is relatively quiet. It's lightweight- just over 30 lbs. -but powerful. It did a very good job of removing the thatch and dead grass. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Greenworks dethatcher I was reluctant to purchase this product due to wide differences in reviews. I carefully read some of the positive reviews and followed their recommendations. These included the correct extension cords,power outlets and settings on the unit (as described on previous reviews) . I had no problems. I have a small front lawn and medium size rear lawn. In the beginning I was careful not to run the unit for more than 15 minutes, to avoid over heating, but I found this unnecessary. This unit worked flawlessly. It worked beyond my expectation. This unit helped me avoid back breaking work and saved a lot of time. I highly recommend it. If you follow the recommendations you will have no problems. By the way,a YouTube video suggestion I found was really helpful. Atfter dethatching with the unit, use your lawn mover to pick up thatch left behind. The lawn mover with the attached bag easily picks up the thatch. Makes clean up much easier. I don't regret buying this unit and you won't either. I loved it and you will too. June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Revived yard Love this product, our poor yard was a hot mess and we needed to have it power raked. None of the local landscapers offered this service so we decided to take matters into our own hands. Saw this on line and thought we would give it a try. It was easy to put together and even easier to use. It was like vacuuming the grass except we had to rake up the mess. If you need to breath life back into your lawn this is definitely the product for you. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than renting! Got this dethatcher as I didn't want to rent one out. Plus the ones that you rent look super heavy and I am a smaller framed person. putting it together was super easy! it's super light so if you're a smaller framed person you can easily handle it. At first you feel it's not going to be strong enough but it's fantastic! don't forget to mow your lawn well before you use it. The only con is that the plastic strip on the back bottom of it just fell off. June 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Product works well, is easy to use, and all at a reasonable price. We purchase a new to us home and the previous owner obviously didn't invest time in the lawn. The lawn isn't in terrible shape, but just needs some TLC to get it as thick and lush as all of my neighbor's yards. One definite need was to dethatch. I did part of the yard with a dethatching rake and after 2 hours of that and nowhere near enough progress considering the total yard size, I knew I needed a power tool for the job. Did some research and this brand/product stood out from the pack. I have now completed the full yard and am thrilled with the results. It would be nice if there was a gas model, but I can deal with dragging the power cord along for the ride. A definite must tool in your yard arsenal. May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best for your money First, shipping was fast and packing was excellent. The use of extension cords took a little time to get use to, but then it was a snap. This machine works quiet and efficient. No tines were broke after doing nearly a half acre lawn, unlike those from a gas model I had. I picked up four large containers of dead thatch from just my front lawn. The grass grows greener, now. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOW - did not expected to work this well!!! It's been over 5 years since we did the landscaping and the grass looked very yellow/dead in big patch areas. Realized we needed to dethatch but the work was too much by hand. Got the Dethatcher, fully expecting to return it to Home Depot (small motor) but WOW! My daughter thought the area we dethatched looked like a hay field since it dug up so much of dead grass. Dethatching is the easy part, as long as you don't get tangled by the power cord, it's the gathering of the dead grass that is the hard part. It starts easy, very light weight and moves effortlessly. My only qualm is that it's electric and has to be tied to a power-cord. I know it's better for the environment but still the cord sure get's in the way...It's been about 2 weeks and the dethatched area looks green (extra watering and rain helps) as before and can't wait to finish the yard come early fall - too much to do it all at once and the weather is getting too hot. Highly recommended - expected to be used once a year or couple of years. May 24, 2016
