    Wondering if you guys thought that this passes as ok for a dethatch/spring clean up. They have before and after pics...Opinions are appreciated...Oh yeah, in the second before picture, half the lawn is already ran over with the power rake...

    Looks good, even though my yard is dark green already. I did that a month ago and now it is green and already mowed it 3 times.

    well the power rake is 19inch path, and its just a push, so im sure you can figure it out per lawn, and then I suck everything up with a exmark 48inch with a trac vac.. One pass with each...the first one prolly 45 minutes total the second little over an hour....

    are you saying that this does not look like an acceptable dethatch, because if it doesnt I am going to stick that 750 dollar power rake right up the guy's a** that I bought it from (it does pull up a good amount of thatch but it is definitely the less intrusive of all the power rakes)

    I'm NOT being rude, just honest as that is what helps businesses versus "feel good comments". That said, I can't really tell much of a difference in the before and after other than you can tell a mower has gone across it in the afters.
