Questions & Answers


Will this fit a YardMachines Model 11a02b1729

Asked by JS April 8, 2021

Will it fit ryobi 20 inch 40 volt mower

Asked by James March 10, 2021

It is advertised as if it does, but I was unable to make it work without modifying the plastic spacer/washer that is part of the normal blade assembly. Since i'm pretty sure this is not sop, I can only wonder if there's some trick I missed, or if this is just situation normal all F'd up. At any rate the pitiful few instructions did not make it clear how it was supposed to work and the included hardware seemed inadequate to get a good fit on the ryobi assembly which is a bit unusual. So a bit of hacking on the nylon washer and i was able to get it to work without making the washer unusable on the regular blade.

wil this fit a troy built 42 inch lawn tractor

Asked by Boo September 23, 2020

Without knowing the specifics of your set up, I can only assume you have a two blade tractor which may or may not work with the included hardware. I found the term "universal" to be deceptive, and had to rework a plastic spacer/washer to accomodate the blade on my ryobi mower, even though this dethatcher was listed as if it fit my ryobi. If you are at all handy and ready to make the adjustments that may be needed you can probably get this to work Even if the blades do fit the shaft, they won't completely fill in the 42 inch cut, so multiple passes would be necessary.

Will this fit a Greenworks 40v 19” lawn mower? Model 2501302

Asked by REL September 4, 2020

this is a "universal" blade in name only and I had to make major adjustments to the mounting on my ryobi mower even though the blade was specifically listed as if it fit . In my opinion the blade is deceptively labelled, and while it does come with extra spacer washers etc it is not necessarily a perfect fit. The basic blade is functional, but beware that you may need to play with it a bit to get it to work

Asked by XX April 18, 2020

I never got around to using mine. I would snug one or both bolts by hand so you can tap on the ends of the dethatching blade to center it up and then measure the gaps in the slots to get them as close as possible to equal as you tighten the blots. The viberation will be minimal. The tines draging across the grass will cause most of the vibrations. I look at your Honda HRR2167VKA on youtube, it looks pretty robust. Again if you can tighten the dethatching blade within 1/8 inch or less of equal it should be fine. It's up to you if you want to try and center up the blade. I hope that helps, good luck.

I have a Kobalt electric 21 inch mower, can I use this blade?

Asked by banph September 7, 2019

The blade comes with several extra washers that allow fitting a variety of blade attachment systems. I have actually used this blade along with my regular whirlwind blade so as to better bag the thatch that is removed. Be careful not to lower it too much on your first trial because you can easily fill the bag in a single run across the yard.

There was a lot of positive feedback about this blade and for $10 I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. a couple things that I did not see in any of the feedback that make a difference: 1) Despite not being an actual "blade" this will cut your grass as you use it. So if your lawn is long you will need to cut it first otherwise your mower will bog down 2) The metal tine that hangs down that actually dethatchs only hangs down about 1/2" below the deck of your mower. This means you have to put the deck down to almost the lowest setting in order to get to the thatch. my deck has 9 positions (1/2" increments). I usally mow one inch from the highest level. I had to dethatch at one inch from the lowest level. I could have moved it down 1/2" more to see how that would work, but was afraid over really tearing up the heatlhy grass as the deck was already so low. 3) With #2 in mind, you really have to cut your lawn short. If you have any variations in the surface of your lawn (mounds, bumps, etc) expect to hit dirt and leave a pretty nasty divot in your lawn 4) Do not back the mower up while using this. its a good way to break the tines and you will most likely hit the mower flap on the rear of your mower that protects your feet 5) Taking all of this into consideration, I "mowed" my lawn 3 times: once to get the grass to a level I could dethatch without bogging the mower down, once to dethatch, and finally, once to pick up the thatch and clippings. The blade did dethatch some of the areas of my lawn nicely. Ironically, I found that it did a nice job dethatching the areas that had healthy, thick grassy areas already. However, in the barren, thinner areas of heavy thatch did not come out much better than when I started.

In order for this thing to get to the surface of your yard so that it actually pulls up the settled thatch you have to lower your mower deck so low that your grass gets cut extremely short. Not a good substitute for de-thatching machine.
