Nice attachment

I wish I would have bought one of these years ago. Assembly was straight forward and easy. The assembly instructions are ok. A little larger illustrations would be helpful. I found the exploded parts list illustration to be the most helpful. I had this assembled with the aid of a helper in less then 1/2 hour. Don't let the 2 or 3 hour assembly time reviews keep you from buying this. I also had extra nuts and bolts. The tines come pre installed, all that is required on assembly is the hitch and wheels, with handle. A total of 21 bolt and nuts if I remember right. This detatcher did a great job. I am using this on a little over 1-1/2 acres that are bumpy and have many slopes. I added two 15 pound dumbells to keep the tines down and in my opinion it did a wonderful job. Make sure you sweep after you detach so you can get the thatch off the lawn. (Or mow and bag it). Looking forward to seeing how my yard will look compared to my neighbors. That will be the real test.

Not as advertised

The hitch assy pictured is not the one that comes with the product. It is also NOT adjustable. Just take a look at the owner's manual. Their description states it is adjustable for hitches between 8" & 14". My hitch is 9" high and is too HIGH for this to properly connect to it. As I said, their hitch is NOT adjustable. When I connected it to my 9" hitch-plate, it would work OK as long as I only went straight. When cornering, the dethatcher binds at the hitch & tips up on one side. To allow it to take a corner, I had to fabricate an adapter to lower my hitch-plate by 1 and 1/2 inches. After doing that, it performed OK. And yes, I did follow the assembly instructions and yes, I do know what I'm doing. In case you were wondering.

A good tool to have


I bought this dethatcher on line and picked it up at the store. I put it together in about an hour with no difficulty. I used it on my lawn and it does a good job but I had to put extra weight on the carriage. Without the extra weight it wasn't getting deep enough. It sure beats using a hand rake.

You can't beat it for the money


I compared to other brands at other Big Box stores. This one had better reviews and a lower price. Assembly was not bad. Used it with my riding mower and was pleased at the results.

Does a great job.


I have use this twice and I am so happy with the job this dethatcher does. I have heavy, heavy clay and it performs better than I hoped. It's also easier on the body than a gas propelled detacher. It adapts well to my zero turn lawnmower and I was able to dethatch half an acre in two days. Discovered you can backup a little and then lift the deck for easier clearing of collected thatch. Easy to move and carry for storage.

Get’s Job Done


This dethatcher gets the job done as described but I’m sure there are much better designs available.
