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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by audifreak 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.

This dethatcher was very effective and for the most part very easy to use. The only drawback is the cord, but it is just the nature of a cord to occasionally get in the way. I am very happy with the product.
