    I just bought one for my Toro Z100, with an extra bracket for my WB. I'll let you know...

    I ordered it from Terry at http://www.schuurmansfarmsupply.com/. Tell him Eric from Minnesota sent you! He will give you a discount off list.

    Try a search on this subject- They do a good job of loosening up debris and getting little twigs off the yard, but as far as dethatching- a power rake will do a lot better job. Don't get me wrong -they are very handy for spring cleanups and worth it if you have big areas to rake, but you can't really call it detatching.

    We've had a 60" on the front of a WB for a couple of years now. Big money maker for Spring clean-ups. Does a great job of getting matted leaves up too. Thing has paid for itself over and over again.

    I'll be getting one when i get a bigger mower but for now i use this on my 36". does a nice job of combing out the turf of dead grass, twigs, leaves, pine needles,etc.. and it all gets chopped up as it goes into the mower bag.

    Hey John Gamba,

    What is it you are using to hold those pins in place. Looks like it might be easier than twisting those key-chain like things to the pin.

    This is my second season with one and really like it. Saves loads of time. Alot better than raking or backpacking a lawn.

    Tine rakes are only good on flat ground.
