Has anyone used the JRCO hooker/aerator or the tine dethatcher on their zero turn mower? I am considering buying these attachments but would like to hear the pro's and con's before I make the plunge. Any advice is appreciated.

I own the JRCO tine rake dethatcher, it's one of the best investments that I made. It paid for itself within half a day of work. I wouldn't use anything else, makes quick work of a mild dethatching job.

I haven't used the hook aerator yet, but it looks like it works well. I may consider buying one next season if I start to get more phone calls for aerating.

Thanks mowerbrad. I was hoping to hear that. Seems like it would work well. The aerator is a possibility for the future myself, depending on the demand.

I have been thinking about buying one for my 36'' metro along with the tub thingy for mulch and what not.

The aerator is about 2k.

Yeah it is kind of pricey. I think I will stick with renting one until I get quite a few more jobs.

The JRCO dethatcher is a great tool for those spring cleanups. Use them on my Wright Standers.

Search google for them, it depends where you get it from.

I got a price of $529.00. That included the mounting bracket. The same mounting bracket is used for all their equipment.

I usually get them for less than $500. But, they might have gone up this year.

Yeah, that's what I see on Ebay, too.

JRCO has a "standard" price list that they recommend and most dealers usually stick to it. I'm a dealer of two in my area and we just use their basic pricing. 529.99 is the out the door price, the only way I could see it any cheaper is if a "big" dealer sold alot of them saving shipping costs. Great products though and very well built, havn't had a complaint yet.
