    From SER:
    Does anyone have any information on dethatching machines? Does anyone know if dethatchers come with a bag to catch the grass being removed? I will be purchasing a dethatcher and wanted to know the pros and cons for these machines. Also what is the average price for a yard? When one does a job do you leave the grass there for the customer, or do you charge for removal?

    You can rent or buy a dethatcher with a bag attached but it really slows you down. I don't think you should leave the grass for the customer unless it can be picked up at no charge. You are going to have a mountain of thatch though. Some options for picking up the thatch is a lawn vacuum that reduces the the thatch before it sucks it into the hopper or if it is not a big lawn and you have time, rake.
