  5. Excuse me but did you read the title of this forum b/4 posting?

    The equipment you have described in this thread is not even close to commercial equipment.

    It's pure junk and is not acceptable as commercial equipment.

    Most likely you will be doing more damage than good and if you try and use this junk commercially you can expect a call from your state dept. of consumer affairs from a complaint from a "customer" (victim actually) that lawn was destroyed.

    P.S. I should have never even replied. For I cannot delete my post. I just checked the profile of the thread started and he is a 15 year old boy.

  7. Only one way to properly dethatch a lawn.

    Power rake with a good flail reel.

    Stone ease up on the Crapsmen we know you had to start some where with a crapsmen too.

    Be easy on the little ones. They have to play with their toy mowers too you know. Let them have their fun. They will be replaced by a pro LCO soon enough, when the customers get tired of the kiddie's tearing up their lawns!

    Man, quit beating this guy up. Sure it's not commercial equipment, but it just goes to show you how gullible you are to believe anything with commerical slapped on the side is meant for the job.

    The big, public traded companies are all demanding innovatative businessmen in their job slots, and that's why you mow lawns.
