Thinking of getting a dethatcher any comments from those that have used them as to what to get and what to stay away from ? Thank for any help

I heard that a plug or a core type is better than the ones that just have a rod. I would look at the ones that are a spreader as well.

I have a revitalizer which essentially functions as a quasi dethatcher. It functions fine, but I don't use it but once per year. If you are talking about the front dethatcher, good luck. I have only seen one available once. They are pretty rare, but I think thay are slick.

Oops, I was thinking you wanted a aerator. Sorry, disregard my last post.:I:o):D I think Simplicity still make ones that mount to the front of a tractor, but the pull behinds are a lot cheaper. Sears has a few.

I still have one front mount available new in the box, well the box is in bad shape, but I have a NOS one might need some modifying to fit large frame tractor.

I'm curious - why is the front one better? I have a front one off another brand of tractor I got as part of another deal, all summer I never even got around to unpacking it. (I think it is green). There's still time for one run before winter.

With the front one you can dethatch and then vacuum in one pass. Here's a former member's setup using an EZ Rake and vacuum.
