Core Aerate in Spring and then Fall.....and the thatch problem will be gone (98.5% ) of the time.

But I do like your idea, I just won't know how to pick up the loose thatch/mess with out raking.
One big difference is that nothing rots in our Florida sand, rather it acts as a preserver of organic matter & builds up over a short period of time.
Yesterday we used it for our first dethatch of the season. I had a helper use it & I was on the Walker mower with the front-mount dethatcher & bagging it up. This combo works perfectly since she could get closer & into small spaces that I could not.
