Bluebird International still make the basic dethatcher.  It's a towed gas powered version.

Tines are available for them.

$200 seems like a real bargain to me...are these as scarce for Bolens as other brands?  I've seen two JD versions come through the local junk auction ($800 & 775), and have had two for Simplicity that I passed along for $700 (complete) and $400 (missing hitch).  They were each sold Day 1.

Heck this one temps me!  What does the front pto turn @?  engine speed?  What size shaft?

I'd say that they are on the rare side.

 

You sure don't come across then every day.

 

The tube frame PTO speed is engine speed.

Incidently I'm the one that picked up that dethatcher, other than needing tines it is in mint condition - I don't think it ever spend a day outside.

The tines the seller had bought for it are these ones:
http://www.russopowe...eeve-539091111/

All the tines are bent or broken and the seller said he needed to clip them as he though they were too long, it makes me wonder if I should not bite the bullet and the ones posted by oldbuzzard.
These tines go for a fraction of the price so I don't mind having to clip them, it add up quickly the bluebird tines posted would cost around 250$ instead of 90$ for these.

Glad you got it as I was going for it myself and it was a very good price too. Be great to see it in action sometime. Cheers

It will be a winter project, and should be ready for next spring. I'll post a video when I use it then.

At the moment it's useless without a set of new springs. Hopefully the new springs will last otherwise this will become an expensive attachment to own!

Well I ended up finding tines for the rake for 0.73$. They are genuine husqvarna/bluebird p/n 539091111.
Compared to some of the tines that were on the dethatcher they are a bigger gauge wire but I believe they are the correct replacement.

Got them at www.sourceapart.com
