The Ames thatch rake is a multipurpose lawn rake featuring a head with two differently designed rows of tines. The straight-edged tines are designed to clear dead grass clippings (thatch) from beneath the surface of the lawn. Dethatching will allow air, sunshine, water and fertilizers in to keep the grass healthy. The flared-edge tines break crusted soil and pulverize dirt lumps to help prepare it for planting or reseeding.

Questions & Answers


Is this available in your store

Asked by Linda May 6, 2021

No, it said it was available at the Beaverton store but it wasn't actually in stock. I had to drive down to Tigard to pick one up.

When will this item be back in stock? It says it's not available in stores nor online, and there ...

Asked by Lion March 1, 2021

Have no idea. I'm a customer. I would call the buying office in Atlanta.

Can you rent this thatching rake

Asked by Mugz September 21, 2020

Call your local store to find out. I doubt it.

What is the difference between the flared end tines and the tines on a bow rake?

Asked by David August 25, 2020

The typical leaf rake that is in the shape of a bow/fan is strictly gently pulling leaves off the lawn. This is strong and will fill with thatch with each pull. You really only get about 1-2 feet of pull before the tines fill up. You release the thatch by pushing it back out onto the lawn to clear the tines. The invention is quite clever.

Can you use a thatcher anytime of year?

Asked by Susan June 25, 2020

This would be used in the spring through fall.

Will this rake work on a centipede lawn?

Asked by marmac June 16, 2020

Yes but should not be done in mid-summer. Best time is during the Spring since it won’t have enough time for the grass to grow enough before autumn or winter dormancy.

Can anyone tell me the spacing on the blades for this thatch rake?

Asked by SpursUp7 April 17, 2020

The spacing on the rake is about an inch apart . With a rocking motion on the grass it pulls up thatch effectively

Will this work on ivy ground cover?

Asked by Jason March 11, 2020

It definitely would. Great rake, a real brute.

I'm trying to pull dead grass in my mulch. Would this thatch work in that situation?

Sure will!

I will start off by saying that this detacher rake does exactly what you'd want it to. It does take a lot of elbow grease to get the job done though. My problem was not with the rake itself but rather the wing nuts that are used to adjust the angle of the head. They wouldn't really tighten all the way, so I really tightened them down and the wing nut snapped. They are pieces of garbage. I highly recommend replacing the aluminum crappy wing nuts with stainless steel. I attached a picture of the broken wing nuts. After I replaced the wing nuts, every thing worked great. I completed one area of my lawn and you'll see how much came out. My advice is to mow the lawn short before attempting to dethach.

This thatch rake is the same as the True Temper Adjustable rake sold on Amazon for quite a bit more money. This rake absolutely does what it is supposed to do and is very durable. The question is whether a person uses it properly and is willing to spend the time, but it is a great thatch rake. I find that you do not have to work hard with the rake. Just use very short strokes and repeatedly move it through the grass and it will do what it is supposed to do. The short, easy strokes allow you to stand up straight the whole time and not work yourself harder than need be. I can pull gently for a few short strokes over the same area and it will do the job without as much pulling out of green grass. That said, this rake takes time to get a lawn done. I prefer to do it spread out over many days. The rake seems to work fine if the grass is dry or a little wet. I have never had to wipe off any grass that was caught up in the blades with my hands. Just push the blade forward on the ground and it always come right off. If it does not completely dislodge it, the rake does tend to pull out crab grass and other weeds to be exposed. I just snipped them with some shears. My lawn mower never catches them because they lay flat out on the ground. But the thatch rake pulls them up and sometimes completely out, dependent on how rooted the weed is.

Best rake EVER!!
I bought this yesterday, and used it when I got home, I only did about 300 sq ft. If you are lazy, DO NOT BUY THIS RAKE, you need to put some elbow grease into it, but not super hard to do either, you will break out a sweat. If you like moving, exercise regularly, you will LOVE this rake, it removes thatch like crazy and it keeps you moving and working all your muscles. Think about it, why use a very expensive machine, when you can have this for less than $30 and burn some serious calories while you're at it. Pictures are worth a thousand words, I was AMAZED at the amount of thatch this rake removed! So, for the folks out there who love to move around and get your hands dirty, YOU WILL LOVE THIS RAKE!!!

Works as well as the person behind the tool. Going to need to buy some grass seed because all the moss is gone and I can see the lack of grass.

Quality is good, heavy and durable, but boy did I have no idea what I was getting into... Even with two smaller yards totaling 2.4k sqft, I barely made it 1/8th through my front yard before I was completely exhausted. Do yourself a favor and pick up the Greenworks electric de-thatcher instead. I'll save this for small pockets of dead grass.
