No but I plan to add some gauge wheels to my 3pt tractor mounted sweepster to try it. I have heard it works quite well. I got a walkbehind detatcher and it takes too long on 1 acre jobs.

I too want to know more. :)

Look into the JRCO rake, and you will never look back. Instant moneymaker.

I hope to add a JRCO Dethatcher to my W/B by next month. I know it will pay for itself.

I think you should use a standard dethatcher (like Billygoat) then Turf-vac the property! :) This is the best way for a "true" dethatching! The sweeper attachment is for babies. :cry: Be a man and go big! You should look for a local company to partner up with for that if monies tight! payup

You seem like a guy that would buy a "Husky" :D

Have I pissed you off yet! :realmad: Have a good day! :rolleyes:

Ditto. I bought one a few years back and it has been awsome. Saves alot of time. Most of my lawns don't need a power dethatching (so far).

A hand held is OK for small closed in areas. I use a 40" MB power brush for the open areas, sticks, achorns, dead grass, and sand along the road. Gets it all,one pass.
