Picked up a nice tine dethatcher, grandsons need more seat time.

 

I haven't seen one of these, built well. The manufacturer, I think, went out of biz; Thatch Master.

That looks like a real nice thatcher(and the WH too). It was probably built extra strong so, it was priced out of the market. Seat time is much better for the kids than computer game time. Good Luck, Rick

I love Kohler but, this '90 520-8 with the 20 hp Onan is a brute!

 

For our next project, a country find. A B-10, no deck but does have a mid-mount grader, dozer blade and a rototiller. '67 model, runs fine. 

 

Grandsons need the work!   :thumbs:

How did the dethatcher do ?  Is that a frame work for cinder blocks ?    Also love those chrome hub caps   :thumbs:

I've never used a tine (or any) dethatcher. This Thatch Master did a great job.

 

Without a sweeper, or lawn vac, I used a hand rake and backpack blower to move the debris off into the woods next to my property. Could say I mulched the woods.     :thumbs:

 

PS. No frame for cinder blocks but, didn't need extra weight (?). Thought I would but, not.
