View Full Version : De-thatchers / power rakes

So I know in some places de-thatching is not as big as it is here, however where I am from de-thatching or power raking in the spring is very popular. It brings me almost half of my residential revenue.

Anyways I am just curious to know what people think of de-thatchers with bag kits on them. I have been using 3 husky rakes without bags for the past 6 years and always have to rake up the thatch before mowing as it is to thick to mow.
I have been contemplating buying bag kits for these units so that we do not have to rake up thatch but can just start mowing right away.

I'm just not sure if the bag kit actually picks up enough to eliminate the hand raking. For those who have tried both, what are your thoughts?

I have a dethatcher that mounts of the front of my mower that works extremely well!
