Saw this John Deere Thatcher on Craigslist in Indianapolis for $25.

Anyone know if it would fit a John Deere 68 Rear Engine Rider? At that price, I'm tempted to just go pick it up and make it fit! :-p

 

Thanks!

I don't know what to do with a "dethatcher" but I will look good in a collection.

 

What's a dethatcher or thatcher? Is it foe raking straw???

A thatcher or dethatcher is for removing thatch (dead grass and such) from your lawn. Most I've seen are the tow behind type, but this one appears to mount on the front of the mower.

At that price, I would buy it first, worry about what it fits second.

Thanks for explanation. It's a mechanical scarifier.
