About This Product

Traditional tow-behind dethatchers don't allow you to utilize your mower's zero turn radius capabilities. You bought your fancy new ZTR mower to be faster and more productive in the yard, right. So why would you use a tow-behind attachment with it and neutralize that benefit. With the new 48 in. Front Mount Dethatcher from Brinly, you won't be limited by your attachment anymore. Easily reach into corners and other tight spaces with precision instead of simply rounding off your turns and leaving the edges untouched. And with its patent-pending one-bolt mounting design, it will attach to your mower in seconds. Let your ZTR do what it was designed to do make you and your lawn the envy of the neighborhood.


  • Front-Mounting Design: Mounting in front of the mower allows the extracted thatch to be mulched by the mower blades, for faster decomposition, or collected using a sweeper.
  • Triple-Coil Strength: The (24) 3/16″ diameter triple coil strength spring steel tines guarantee maximum efficiency, durability and thatch removal.
  • One-Bolt Clamping: This patent-pending design allows for quick attachment to the mower without any modification whatsoever.
  • Dual-Rotating Wheels: Two swiveling caster wheels ensure that the tines follow the contours of the lawn to prevent damage and maximize thatch pickup
  • Heavy-Duty Steel: Thick steel plating and square tubing is treated with a tough powder-coat finish to prevent rust and ensure long-lasting durability.
  • Two Rows of Tines: The two rows of independently flexing tines remove dead grass and roots (thatch), allowing your lawn's root system access to water and nutrients.
  • Fit Guide: The DTZ-48BH has been designed to fit a wide range of ZTRs. See our Fit Guide in the product images to ensure your ZTR meets the required dimensions.
  • Made in the USA: Trusted Since 1839, Brinly-Hardy Company has been dedicated to providing quality, durable, and innovative Lawn & Garden Products.

    Spindle height is key
    Overall this has worked well but assembly was harder than it should have been. The biggest problem was front wheel spindle height. The measurement specs say a minimum of 3” required. The spindle height on my Gravely ZT52 is about 3-1/4” so I figured no problem. The pinch mounts are too tall for minimum spindle height as they wouldn’t allow the front wheels on the mower to pivot without alteration. I ended up pressing them narrower and also flipped the top spindle cap since it is a sealed bearing

      This was built very solid. There were a few times I had to go back due to lack of clear directions when building. I used this on a Acre + sized lot and it worked great. Absolutely faster than a rake.

      Well Built Attachment
      IMO this attaches the best way to your ZTR. Took a couple hours to install. As expected, instructions weren't the greatest, but it was not terrible figuring it out. Just installed, so I I'll update review after 1st time use. FYI, this is attached to my Gravely ZTHD 60" ZTR and feels very very solid.

        Great job, cheap answer to thatch!
        I bought the dethatcher last summer because my lawn was really checking on old thatch. I figured that it would be cheaper to buy one to tow with my Ryobi electric than to rent a unit. I was right! I ended up using it twice, and agreed the second time to do my neighbor's lawn as well. I really love having it at the ready for this summer!

          Your product is extremely well built. Advertised as “universal” is false advertising, as it did not adapt to my John Deere Z345r zero turn mower. Should this unit be retrofitted so as to adapt to affore mentioned mower, will be in line to purchase.
