Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OsaBrutus So easy to use!
Just purchased Sept., 2016 n used on my much neglected lawn. House was a rental for 10 yrs. More dead grass than green in most places of approx. 800 sq. ft. lawn
Decided to make 2 complete passes, raking up cuttings in between. Super easy to run. Practically runs itself. Wish it had a catch bag, however. This product had more n higher ratings than other brand with bag. A little tricky to start but manual explains - push start button then pull up on lever. U will NOT HEAR A THING when u push start button. A little trickly so unplug when not operating so no one gets hurt and all will be well. My lawn looks so much better! Now time to overseed.

For just a little over $100 I have a tool that allows me to de-thatch my lawn as much or or as little as I want. A lawn care company quoted me aver $200 to do just the front half. What a deal. One concern I have is how long the tines will last. After working on about 400 square feet of lawn - removing the grass and weeds that I had killed with Round-up and then scratching the underlying dirt for re-planting grass seed - the tines are showing some wear. Before I purchased this machine, I questioned how much tine wear I could expect (the machine came with a free set of extra tines so i was suspicious). No quantitative answer was forthcoming, so we will see in the future how simple de-thatching will wear out the tines.

bought this over a year ago and I use it mainly to trim the grass from the edge of flower beds. Works just like it says and no tedious upkeep. The only problem I had is that I didn't read the instructions...don't pull backwards.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LV Thank goodness!
We have a rather large yard and live in the PNW so, lots of moss. My husband wanted me to get him a thatching rake but after reading the reviews for those and seeing the electric option, there's no way I wanted to thatch our large yard with a rake. The electric dethatcher was easy to use (even for me) and worked quickly. I was a little concerned it might overheat but it never did and we used it for quite a while at a time, each time we used it. It still was a major project to rake up all the thatch once we went over with the electric dethatcher but that just made me thank my lucky starts we didn't have to manually rake everything from scratch. Our yard is not perfectly level so it did tear up a few patches of grass but hey - it'll grow back. We've only used it a couple days and few hours at a time so hopefully it will be a good investment in the long run.

My front lawn desperately needed some TLC so I weighted the options of either renting equipment or purchasing this dethatcher. Purchasing this dethatcher was easily the best thing I could have done. It was very easy to setup and very easy to use. It just took a little while getting used to using electrical lawncare equipment trying to keep the power cord out of the way at times. All in all it is a great product and does the job....very well.

I was skeptical about this product until I used it. It did a nice job of digging out the thatch. I removed the rubber safety flap so the thatch could more easily get out. It's a pain pulling an electric cord but I needed something lightweight that could be easily carried to a remote section of my lawn. It's all plastic so we'll see how long it lasts. Seems overpriced for plastic and an electric motor but it did the job and that's what was important.

I bought this dethatcher two season ago now and what a great product. I highly recommend it. It pulls up a lot of thatch you'll be amazed. I run this machine through my yard then follow with my lawn mower with the bag attachment to suck up all the thatch. It works great.
