What are your experiences with these? My yard has a thick layer of straw that I'd like to remove. Big yard, about three acres, I'd hate to hand rake it.

I have a front mounted de-thatcher for my ztr, it works well but like anything it has it's limits. There's no way I am hand raking 3 acres, that is a job for equipment bigger than a ztr w/ a de-thatcher but if thats all I had I would sure use it.

How about a Billy goat push blower???? That would work just fine :)

Unfortunately, a Billygoat won't touch straw that is matted and wound into the turf. The JRCO rake would be THEE way to go for something like this.

I have a 6 foot rotary broom mounted on the front of my JD 935. I would "roll" it into rows then I would suck it up with my leaf loader right into my dump truck or a trailer. I have a Walker with the dethatcher but I wouldn't consider doing 3 acres with it.
