Works Great, provided...

I was skeptical when I bought this due to some other reviews. This exceeded my expectations and will do the same for you, provided you use your head. This type of thatcher needs to be used with some common (uncommon?) sense. You need to install the plastic thatcher's on both ends (they are installed on one side), if you do not, you could cause engine damage as noted in other reviews. 1- install the blade and raise your cutting height slightly (so you do not scalp) 2- be prepared, depending on how much thatch you have; you may pull up 4 to 10 times your usual number of bags 3- go slow - lots of pull on the motor. 4- I did an initial pass, a second pass at a lower level and a third pass at the same level to pull up any remaining thatch. This blade worked better with less scalping than any thing I have used over the years. PS - if you have a lumpy or uneven yard, you may not want to use a thatcher blade... Good luck

More frustrating than effective.

[????Why can't reviews be formatted with paragraphs????] * * * * * I bought this last year to try to boost the miserable performance of my "Craftsman Professional 190cc* Variable-Speed Rear-Wheel Drive Mower." Well, I'm not sure anything could help that mower produce really good results. This certainly didn't. * * * * * The idea is neat - the stiff plastic strands 'rake' the lawn as you mow, sort of like a lite-duty power rake. However, the plastic tines fall out almost immediately. I cut a couple of swaths with good - I wouldn't say 'great' - results, then noticed lower performance for a few more passes, then checked. 2 out of 3 plastic tines on each side were missing. Same results after replacing them all twice. The replacement plastic tines can get expensive, too: each replacement pack costs about %25 as much as the blade originally. * * * * * The problem is that nothing really holds the plastic pieces in - they just get bent in half and forced through holes in the blade, and come out just as easily. If I decide to use it this year, I'll try to rig up some way to keep the plastic wires in, then it might be worth it. Of course, the plastic parts wear out, too, so spending a lot of effort to keep them in just means re-doing that effort at each frequent replacement. * * * * * In all, I suggest getting a metal-tined power rake attachment.

Dethatching Blade for my lawn mower

blade is better than a regular blade but I thought it would dethatch the lawn more than it does.

Dethatching and Bagging Blade

Great Blade even if the thatching inserts are hard to find and currently DISCOUNTINUED at sears. I only thatch once a year so one set is sufficient and the blade stays on my mower all year.

Detacher Blade

Excellent results for detaching and scalping the lawn. My new lawn now looks like carpet.

screwed my lawn mower up

Not worth it!! I need to have a new flywheel and key installed on my mower. I never had any problems with my mower until I bought this blade.

Save your money!

Great for scalping. For dethatching it is underperforming. Doesn't pickup old grass, leaves trails. not what you want to buy!

Doesn't dethatch; only cuts the grass

This blade doesn't dethatch the lawn since the plastic prongs aren't long enough to reach the thatch layer without totally scalping your grass. I didn't want to ruin my lawn, so with the mower as low as it could be to save some grass, the prongs still didn't reach the thatch layer. Also, one of the prongs fell out and was lost. I'll keep the blade only to cut the grass, not dethatch.

This Power Rake does it all !!

I had a situation of moss taking over my lawn. I installed the power rake per instructions, then lowered
the deck so as to scalp and with the rear bag attached to my Craftsman 3 in 1 mower was able to strip off all of the moss and bag it at the same time. It did the job perfectly. It's a great tool and I will be using
it later in the fall to power rake and bag fallen leaves.
