    I was wondering if anyone knows who makes a wider walk behind power rake/dethatcher. The widest one seems to be 22 inch which I currently have.

    How does Turf Teq power rake work as a dethatcher?

    Does anyone use a rotary broom for dethatching?

    Bluebird has a 38" tow behind power rake. I prefer using the jrco rakes. They are easier to use and it is alot harder to rip up a lawn with one. Plus the added width helps you finish faster. I find that they work as well as a power rake for regular thatching. If you have a heavy thatch build up then your best bet is a power rake.
