What is the difference between a Power Raker and Dethatcher?

    I own Blue Bird Power Rake, going to buy another but I've seen pics of dethatchers with over-seeding hoppers on the front and I'm wondering if they are the same machine?

    The reason I ask is I have been asked about over-seeding (not really sure what it is except for the obvious answer) and I can't see how can seed a lawn and dethatch it because of all the thatch that is pulled up. It would look like hell.
