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.

I have used this item. I did not add any weights, still it worked what I got it for is that I have a very large lot and I have been having getting the grass to grow. now I will put down some grass seed and let it grow. it sure got a lot of junk off my lawn.. I am a craftsman person. thanks sears.
For the price, it's a pretty decent unit and does a good job. The only problem is the handle. Takes up too much room in my shed and the handle is a little flimsy and kept collapsing. I have to put another bolt through so it stops moving around.
This product worked awesome. Fit my older mower without a problem. My lawn needed to be dethatched badly and this did the trick easily. I would recommend it highly to anyone.
This Craftsman Dethatcher worked a lot better than I had expected it to. Be prepared to bag a lot of thatch afterwards. It was pretty easy to assemble as well. Overall very happy.
