It works great. Made even better by the fact that it isn't very expensive. I used it to drag a section of my yard that has been overtaken by moss as well as normal grass dethatching. I put a lot of weight on it to make it aggressive for the moss; I used less weight for thatching the grass.

When I saw the item online in a picture I didn't think it would be made tough enough to do the job. The price was affordable in my opinion so I decided to give it a try. My yard was full of weeds, sticks, and other stuff so I thought I really need it. The assembly of it was a little tougher than I thought it would be. I was able to put everything together but I ended up with about eight extra hex bolts after the assembly was completed. Everything went together but some of the fasteners were really difficult to get to. They were in really tight places and I thought they could have stamped the bolt holes a little farther away from the tine's coils. It has a long handle that is convenient to operate it from the operator's seat with a little twisting effort. However, the long handle takes up a lot of storage space if you store it in the upright position. If you store it in the position as if it were being pulled behind the tractor the lever can get in your walking path and snag your pants as you walk past. After hooking it up behind my garden tractor it filled up with a lot of weeds and sticks to the point where I had to stop. At this point I cleaned it out and it kept filling back up. I ended up filling up a barrel with weeds and sticks after the first use. After dethatching once I noticed a difference in my yard. It seems like the grass is beginning to grow better. Hopefully it will continue to work for many more years to come.
When I picked it up the box is big, but all the pieces are free-floating inside. Every time you move the box metal is banging on metal. Was a little surprised to see such a large box yet so many unassembled pieces. Once it was together it works great.
Very nice product , made well , sturdy, does the job, easy to use,stores easy, easy to put together minimal time required, maybe have your son or daughter help with holding while U bolt pcs together, but not nessasary, again Craftsman puts out another good lawn product.Happy so far with it

Was a little scepticle about the purchase. Ordered unit through the store and picked it up. Very easy to follow instructions for assembly. Once done hooked up rto tractor and put weight on it . Found too heavy. Removed some weight and proceeded arounsd the yard. Could not believe how much stuff came out of the grass. Yard looks much better and grass is growing stronger.
Bought this to help clean up smaller fallen Willow branches as well as dethatch the lawn. Does both well and saves time with yard clean up in the spring. Easy to assemble and setup for first use.
