    Anyone ever use a walk behind vacuum after dethaching?

    Use a dethacher attachment for your walk behind mower. jrco makes one

    JRCO's are the way to go. Run it on a Z with a bagger and you can make money flow...

    This seems to be the easiest way to detach and clean up

    Jrco rake + 60" gravely + 3 bag bagger = one hell of a money make. Ive never ran a true dethatcher on a lawn. If it has a lot of thatch I'll hit it twice with the jrco.

    Those 'true' walk behind dethatchers like Bluebirds are death traps to use. No way in hades I would want to use those things for any time of volume dethatch work.

    We power rake 250+ lawns each spring with bluebirds. IMO it's the only way to a great job. We charge $150.00 minimum.
