How does this work on a lawn with a lot of moss?

Asked by Ed March 17, 2021

Answers

It will work fine, you may need to go over it a few times. I went over mine about 2 times and then used my lawnmower to cut lower and gather the leftover thatch so I can spread fresh grass seeds.

It will be tough work, but the machine should handle it. It might be easier if you remove in small layers, rather than trying to grab it all on one pass.

Anybody else get a dethatcher that had about 2 pounds of sand in it?

Asked by NickM October 9, 2020
2
Answers

There is a bag of sand placed at the end of the drive motor to make the unit heavy enough to hold the raking teeth in contact with the thatch. It rests on some stubs which apparently punctured the bag allowing sand to fall out. Might also allow sand to get into the motor. Overall poor design for what could be a great little unit.

Poor design: 1. Front wheel needs to be larger and the body should be higher. As one can see in the photos of the product (and poorly seen on my photo) there is a part of the body that extends in front of and below the wheel which will get hung on thick grass as is found in areas that contain thatch. I runs smoothly on bare soil or very thin grass but will not move in thatch. 2. While the control is a sturdy metal wire it is attached to the electric controls via a rather thin and fragile peace of plastic that will break (mine did-see my photo). 3. The flap on the back (not shown in photo) is spring-loaded and will not allow the machine to move forward once any thatch is removed. Would recommend removal of spring to allow machine to proceed while removing thatch. 4. The plastic clips that are intended to hold the wire in place are very flimsy and will fall off almost instantly. This is not important if you own any duct tape. Worx needs to test their products on real yards.

Needless to say it was AWESOME!!! Really can’t wait to use it again in spring!!! It removed a ton of dead grass on the highest setting. My lawn looked really good when I was done!!! You really need this for your lawns!!!

Light and works as advertised.
I bought a few weeks ago and it was easy to assemble and get dethatching. I did one vertical and one horizontal pass on setting 2 and 2 more passes on setting 3 using a 100ft cord. The pictures attached show more dead grass using the lower level 3. I did have the issue with it shutting off after a period of time. I would just go and rake and then try again. The belt did squeal at times too. I found with cord management to start closest to the outlet and work away. My height is 6 foot and the handle was a comfortable level.

Greener Grass

Awesome Product!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First off, this thing is an animal! I can't say how much I enjoyed using this unit over the past 4 days. I have a pretty good sized yard, and it was a MESS after this past brutal North Dakota winter. It took some getting used to especially regarding the depth of the tines, but once I got around that issue, all it did was WORK. It did an excellent job & I'm very happy that I purchased the unit. Highly Recommended. ***Picture is of my front yard after using this Dethatcher. Now all we need is some rain to green things up***

Handy tool for the yard
I just bought this at the beginning of March and was able to use it a couple weeks ago. It did great on areas that my grass was low level. Saved me long hours by instead of my Dethatcher rake. I bought it because I have a torn shoulder and didn’t want to strain it any further. The only problem I did have that it shut off three times. Each time I had to wait for at 30min or more before it would turn on again. For my thicker grass I had to raise up the wheel otherwise it was making it work too hard. It was a little hard to push as well. I also did my front and backyard on different days to prevent overworking it. I used level 2 in my front yard. It was still struggling and shut off. Prior to this. I mowed my yard as low as it could go without butchering it. I didn’t use the bag attachment because as much stuff that was coming up I would’ve been stopping too much to unload it. So I used my bag mower to clean up the excess debris. It was much faster that way. Also, the extension cord was always in the way as well. Comes with the territory of a plug-in device. Other pretty handy.

Easy to assemble, light weight, arrived on time. The handle is too high, the bag is useless, and it is not self-propelled, except for the action of the times. It is not heavy enough to stay level, and gets caught up on the bumps my the lawn. The deck is wide enough, but it should be much longer in order to be more stable and level.

Overheated and shut down
I will be returning and purchasing a different dethatcher brand. The bag was a joke, kept falling off and two small. Was hard to push, the wheels kept getting clogged up and getting stuck. Once bag was removed, pushing became easier and was running great for about 10 more minutes, before the machine seemed to overheat and just shut down. I was unable to get it turned back on, even after making sure all parts were moving and cleared out. Got about 20 minutes of use and only got half my front yard done
