FYI - You can buy your Grass Stitcher at any John Deere Landscape service center, if you don't see them in the store ask them to order some.

grass stitcher overload.

I've played with one, thats about it.. it might make a nice back scratcher..

It might be handy in certain situations... hard to say... little pricey.

I bought one, for small areas it works very well. Anything larger than 10'x10' use a slit seeder.

The key to using a Grass Stitcher properly is to keep it close to your body, not way out in front, so that your weight is over it, and to use short strokes. For most soils you can use just your hands. For stiff soils add your foot. It's really pretty simple and effective once you get used to it. Personally I think they need to stop comparing it to the Weasel, because there is no comparison. I've used the Grass Stitcher for 4 hours in a day (large lawn with a ton of pet spots and other scattered bare patches) without getting a blister. Try that with a Weasel. In fact, try using a Weasel for 4 hours without breaking it!

kind of like using a rake instead of a backpack blower. Seems it might be better for the homeowner market.

How large was the lawn?

Toby - The lawn size is irrelevant. But I will say that based on the overall excellent condition of the lawn and my client's high expectations (this client is admittedly "anal" about his lawn) I decided the best approach was to give individual attention to each bare spot rather than using machines such as an aerator and/or overseeder. I knew it would be more difficult but I charged accordingly. It's rare that I would use the tool that extensively on a lawn. It was really this particular lawn/client that led me to do so. I don't recommend using the Grass Stitcher for 4 hours on a regular basis.

If anybody would like info/and or an unbiased opinion on the Grass Stitcher, please feel free to message me privately.
