This dethatcher works much better than I had hoped... I love it! One pass through my yard before the spring rains did the job. My grass has now come in better than ever before. But, by the time I was done putting it together I was pretty aggravated. The instructions ares dismal. The drawings are so poor, it's a wonder anybody can get this thing together correctly. I read these reviews about people having a tough time, but I thought, "how bad can it be?". Bad. I hope Sears sees these comments and has the instructions re-worked. Again, works great (if you can calm yourself down after putting it together!).

Product works as advertised and you can't beat the price. The assembly is a HORRIBLE and tiring affair of unclear instruction steps and very tiny pictures that are not clear enough to see what is meant.
Most people do not realize the importance of dethatching their lawn but it can make all the difference in the world! I dethatch in the spring and fall and this attachment saves me from either raking by hand or hiring an expensive service.
Great item but I had no idea it would be this confusing, not so much difficult, to put together. Look at the pics in the box, better assistance then diagrams. And I have out a lot of things together, without instructions. My wife event came outside and could not believe I was still putting it together. Maybe I was having a brain ****.
Takes a long time to set up but the instructions are good. Was nervous about the plastic wheels but so far they seem to be working well. The thatcher brought up about 6 39 gal bags of dead grass off of .3 acres... I was pretty impressed for the price.
sturdy, heavy gauge steel construction. assembly plans less than easily followed because of small print and no closeup views of parts and there locations to the assembly. it takes patience to construct!!! as for the completed dethatcher, very well constructed

This unit did a good job on my yard. It did take me about 2 hours to get it put together but I was in no rush. I did use the interacted video that was listed on the box to put it together. ( agri-fab.showuhow.com ) just enter the model # and it will walk you through the whole process if putting it together. I have never used a dethatcher befor, I will never use a rake again to dethatch my yard. Good unit for the price. One last note, do use some weight on it for it to dig down deep enough.
Had to use 2 cinderblocks to get some good depth while raking my lawn. Does the trick for pulling up all the dead grass. Only problem was had to mow after to suck up all the dead grass But that is to be expected. Great product.
