I just got one of those attachments and used it last week on my 10,000 sqft. lawn. I was pleasantly suprised at the job it did. Its more of a power rake than a typical de-thatcher which is what I was looking for because the lawn was is in good shape. The thing pulls you along at good pace. You will have to lean back to prevent it from going to fast. I got a pile of thatch, pine needles, pine cones - etc about half the size of a mini-van - this from a very healthy looking decent lawn.
It took me a couple of hours to detatch and a couple more to rake it up. You could go over the thatch with a mower or vac but I decided to rake due to pine cones and moss. For 100,000 sqft. I might consider a rental. The Honda foot print is only 15".
I also should add that it did a very decent job of power raking and if you want to spend the time it will pick up alot of debris. I would not use something like this commercially but for one yard its a nice little attachment in the arsenal.
