    I mow full time and took today off to dethatch my own front yard. What a PITA job - I'm 10 days post-op a knee scope and this is the most I have walked. I used a rented Classen TRS-20 that kept surging and stalling. I estimate I did about 8000 sq ft, in fact,I did it twice. Up and down and side to side.

    Trying to get my yard back to what it was 7-8 years ago now that I retired from my "regular" job and only mow.

    By the way, what would I have to pay to get a job like this done? (Plus I overseeded it.)
