Questions & Answers

Do the tines come pre-assembled on the tray or would I have to assemble?

I'm going to try this again, do you need weight on this to work? I thought it was just supposed to lightly scrape the surface of the lawn

Asked by: Name
I put a 8” x 16”x 11/2” concrete block on mine, mainly to keep it from bouncing on rough spots.

Can this be attached to any make of lawn tractor?

This is much cheaper than the one made by the maker of our tractor :-)
Asked by: WashingtonNewbie
It attaches with a simple pin. If your tractor has a bracket and hole at the rear it should work. If not I would think you could buy something. But most tractors have a hitch.

The assembly instructions were quite poor. If you are not generally good with assembly you may be better off to buy an already assembled dethatcher. I would recommend using lock tite on the threads or get lock washers for anything that doesn't come with a lock washer. This didn't stay together well on it's own the way it comes out of the box. Be sure to test it out on an area of lawn you don't mind possibly damaging before using it in the publicly viewable areas of your lawn. I found 2 cement blocks to be WAY too much weight on the top and found that 1 block was about right for my lawn. Overall, it worked and did an ok job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good Does the trick for smaller properties... Assembly took about an hour, the hardware was individually packaged for each stage of putting it together which helps you avoid having to pick through a ton of nuts and bolts to find the right one. The only area of concern are the nuts that hold the wheels on the axel. I would recommend buying two extra (one per wheel, about 2 bucks) with a lock washer for each. The single nut provided has a tendency to loosen on bumpy terrain causing the wheels to get wobbly. For dry conditions two cinder blocks on the tray is enough to really clean up the yard, anything more your lawn may look unsightly for a week or so... For around 80 bucks I recommend this tool for a homeowner who wants to occasionally treat the grass.

Purchased in the Fall of 2017 and assembled in the Spring of 2018 for spring cleanup. The instructions regarding how to "level" the tines at 1/2" inch above the ground needs serious improvement. I am not pleased with the overall 'tight-ness' of this piece of equipment. Unlike the solid Brinly-Hardy aerator I purchased a year ago, the shifting lever on this piece of equipment is loose and flops around when in dethatch position #2. They should improve the design and charge a few dollars more if necessary.

The instructions for assembly could be a little bit clearer, but between the text and the photos, I got it done. I have used the implement, and have to say, it sure did the job! SO much better than using a dethatching rake manually, at least for the size of my yard, about 1/3 acre of lawn.

It worked so good that I went out and bought one. Combine this with a bagging riding lawn mower and I well never hand rake the yard again in the spring. But to be truthful, it is pain to assemble.

After using it my neighbor now wants to borrow it to do his. Took off 14 bags of grass and thatch today. Great product for the price.
