Just ordered the tine rake for the scag wb, was wondering how effective the tine rake 38" is as a dethatcher. Im guessing that nothing is better than hand raking, however, does this tine rake get the job done and satisfy? I am also looking into getting the tow-behind aerator for the snapper Z, thoughts were to dethatch then aerate. Anyone have any experience with these jrco products or any advise with my brainstormed spring clean up plan? I know im going to have to pick up the big sticks and branches but im hoping that the rest will be tined up/mowed up/ and then aerated. If worse came to worse i would get outa the walk behind billy goat 13hp blower and blow the leaves/sticks/whatever into a pile at one end of the property.
