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.

I used it on a Black and Decker electric mower and had to file the center hole out to fit, but once installed, it chewed up the dead grass and spit it out very well. It's definitely an option for electric mowers, at least 110 volt models.

To fit my Ryobi, I had to grind the width at the mounting area down. Once that "fit" was established, it mounted easily and performed as expected.

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.
