    I gave mine away because I could not stand using it. If your ground is very flat, it will work half way decient.

    They work just fine. You have to set the depth right however. Too much pressure gives you way to much soil disturbance.

    a walker with one of those on the front would give you the perfect dethatching machine.

    We have a couple, they are worth every penny to us. They get used pretty hard for about 3 weeks a year, not a complaint yet

    Great product and JRCO has great customer support. A light dethatching with this is included in all of my spring cleanups. Get it.
