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.

Good product, good price


I bought this because my old was bent and worn and I wanted the same type of blade that I had been using.

Does the job


It dethatches a lawn pretty well. I had a lot of buildup which meant emptying the bag often. I took a star only because the nylon stringers are not the most rugged items for this. They work but after doing the front yard I had to lower the mower for the backyard because they had worn down already. After I’d done the back I saw one of the stringers had disappeared!
