    You've probably all seen them - the 16" strait blades with spring dethatcher tines on the end. Well, I was wonderin if ya all think 3 of them (16" x 3 blades = 48" deck ) would work on my Metro 48"er?

    Rent or buy a power rake or get a tine dethatcher. Those springed blades are no good. they were down too quickly and break to often. Not to mention they can really dig up a lawn too. I think you posted the wrong picture, didn't you mean to post a picture of the underside of your deck with the tine blades on.
