Is this a good machine for spring clean up?

    It's the cheapest one they had but still costs a lot.

    Best machine there is... use your mower, get a JRCO dethatcher and put on the front....

    I had to google JRCO dethacther. What good would that do? That bluebird thing is a dethacher right? (Someone said something about seeding and now I'm confused.)

    Best machine for Spring & Fall clean up is a ZTR with a PECO vac system.

    The reason this is the best, is because you already have the machine.

    The dethatcher is $600 at most, and you use your mower to bag the stuff at the same time.

    The problem with the Bluebird machine that you listed earlier, is once you drive all over the yard removing the thatch, is then you need to go back and bag up the thatch, whether using a bag on the Bluebird model, or then using your mower.
