Dethatcher

Im looking into buying a JRCO dethatcher.

I have a 52" Exmark Turf Tracer. Will the 60" dethatcher fit on it? The next size down is a 46, do its not really reaching as wide as the mower.

Thoughts?

You can fit a 60" on that mower, its just a mounting bracket that you need. The mounting bracket that fits your particular mower is universal and can be used with any attachment from JRCO...doesn't matter if you want to use a dethatcher, aerator or spreader, they will all fit the mounting bracket for your mower.

I've had my JRCO 46" dethatcher for 5 or 6 years now and its been on 48", 52" and 54" mowers. I would not go bigger than your deck width if you plan on bagging at the same time that you are dethatching since you will have a few inches on each side of the mower that are left unbagged, which just makes for a pain to have to go back over the lawn to collect the remaining debris.
