Product Overview

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.
  • Product Support: For warranty, service parts, or for help at any time, reach out to the Brinly Customer Service team by calling our toll-free number (877-728-8224) or by emailing customerservice@brinly.com. Replacement parts can also be ordered online at Brinly's website.

Thank you for your interest in our Front Mount ZTR Thatcher. Unfortunately, it does appear that your ZTR measurements are too narrow to mount the DTZ-48BH securely. We apologize for that. We do have both 40" and 48" tow-behind Dethatchers that might work for you. These hook up via a hitch plate that most ZTR's and Lawn and Garden Tractors are equipped with. Thank you for your question and good luck with your projects.

While most ZTR’s have pivoting casters (in the vertical plane) this model also has a pivoting Front axle assembly – in a horizontal plane. Since our unit attaches to the ends of the axle assembly then there should be no issue with our unit on this mower.The front axle assembly can pivot, but it would only do so to hug the contour of the ground it is traveling over. The Dethatcher should still be the same distance from the ground side to side, this will allow it to continue to dethatch over uneven or at an angle land.

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.

Used this with my 22 year old Exmark Metro 48" walk behind. Note that the product is not advertised for use with a walk behind. Assembly was straight forward. Attaching to the mower was a bit of a challenge and easier done with a helper as the instructions say. The pivot brackets needed to be installed upside down from what is shown in the instructions in order to line up at the proper height for attachment. The instructions don't match the above photo, which is the orientation that worked for me. The fit to the mower where it clamps on was a little bit on the loose side as the casters on this mower are a bit on the narrow side and may require some additional padding for a tighter fit. Your mower will steer like a boat and you will need to start your turns earlier than normal, i.e., you will not be doing quick zero turns and you will have difficulty getting in and out of corners and tight spaces. Other than that I was able to dethatch at my normal mowing speed so it made quick work of the job. It is solidly made and did a nice job.

not for challenging yards
while I think this would work on flat, non-wooded yards, I bent the frame on the first use on a tree root.

The dethatcher is ok once you get it assembled. It took two days and three trips to a hardware store to finally get it assembled. It came with 24 1/2 inch nuts but none of the 20 5/16 inch that are needed. This was the first trip to the hardware store. Next I was missing locking nuts and finally a very hard to find hexnut. I was very careful unpacking all hardware but there must be zero quality control and they simply put the wrong hardware in or left it out all together. Time will tell how the dethatcher itself holds up but I’m not too hopeful. I do not recommend this product due to the complete lack of quality control.
