    I received a Craftsman Dethatcher 40 inch Tow behind, which was challenging to put together. It took 2 of us. It holds 70 lb of weigh to increase the penetration on the lawn. It was easy to hook up to the hitch of the tractor. Did a couple of sweeps on the lawn and I was surprised how much dead grass it rakes up. It’s like a big rake and it does all the work for you. I am very pleased with this product.

    I was finally able to use this, and was very impressed with how well it worked. It hook up to my mower (non-craftsman brand), easily with no adjustments. I placed a cinder block on top and did my entire 2.5 acres of grass. My yard is quite uneven so I was worried about the tines bending, but had no issues with that. Of course, I had to clean it out often, but was absolutely amazed at all the dead grass it brought up. It also grabbed up quite a few clumps of crabgrass and other weeds. I think this will make a huge improvement of the quality of my lawn bow that it has been thinned out of all the yard waste that had been pressed down. Assembly wasn’t too bad, I did need a hand putting it together but it was pretty straightforward and not too complex.

    We wanted to help our lawn get more air and water to the soil so we decided to try the Craftsman Tow Behind Dethatcher to get the job done. And wow it did it! it hooked up super easy to my John Deere riding lawnmower and easy to tow. I put two cinder blocks on the top to help push the times down further. I did a couple passes and also went on different directions. It really broke up pine needles and dig up just a bunch of stuff. I went back over with the grass bag and it just sucked up all the undergrowth the dethatcher brought to the surface. And I know there was a ton of junk because it filled my bag so much faster then usual. I prefer the Craftsman brand as they have a reputable name of putting out great products. It might not look like it does much, but you will be so surprised to find it really does! Well worth the purchase and highly recommend!!

    I am so amazed at what a difference this little thatcher makes! Snow in the Dakotas and me getting a full knee replacement I haven’t been able to use it until yesterday and I was so surprised. That’s even amazed at how nice it made the yard look and how much it dug up. This little guy to anyone easy to hook up nice to pull behind your riding lawn mower You don’t even know it’s back there and does a very good job.

    This thatcher is very well made and seems nice and sturdy. I think it will work great in the Spring to aerate the lawn and in the fall the get it ready to survive the winter. It is easy to attach to my riding mower. It is also quite easy to remove. It’s nice and light too so it would be great for anyone to use. I would highly recommend this thatcher to add to your lawn care equipment!

    When putting it together you could see scratch marks where the angle brackets are attached denoting the dethatcher was probably a returned item, I paid for a new one. Also, when attempting to attach the hitch brackets to the hitch mount bars the holes did not match up, on center was 3/8 inch off, either wrong brackets or poor workmanship.

    I was a little hesitant to purchase this after I purchased the Craftsman Spike Aerator, but I will say this thing works great, I put 2 cinderblocks on the back and it really dethatches the yard really well. I will say the bar that controls it going up and down came in bent but other than that you can’t beat it for the price.

    I received this 2 weeks ago. It is a sturdy and well made dethatcher. I have attached it to my lawn mower and have used it on my lawn to help get the soil ready for planting new grass seed. It loosens the soil easily and does a great job. I can see how this will keep my lawn looking green and healthy.

    Assembly took a while, i did watch a couple videos on youTube. good quality looks great, sturdy, it worked well. I was amazed at how much thatch was lurking in my lawn, and it just does exactly what its supposed to. I’m sure this has never been done on my property. i would definitely recommend

    I am so happy I got this for our lawn. The dethatcher easily hooks up to the tractor and clears the dead grass with ease. Way easier then manually clearing the debris end dead stuff from winter. This saved me a lot of time and you can tell the quality will last.

    Ive only used it once, but it has done a great job so far, does exactly what it shoud do to make my yard jobs easier. Well constructed equipment, built to last. Works great on any tractor, easy to connect.

  12. Dethatching made easy

    I received the dethatcher a little over a month ago the tines are high quality steel. It was easy to use and pull behind my 42 inch lawn tractor. Would definitely recommend it to any yard enthusiasts.

    One of my best tools. The only downside is it’s hard to find replacement tines.
