The best time for dethatching is right before your lawn’s most vigorous growth cycle–late spring from warm-season grasses and early fall for cool-season grasses. Not sure if you need to dethatch? The best way to test your lawn is to use a hand spade to remove a 2-3 inch thick plug from your lawn. If you see more than ½ inch of spongy, brown material between the blades and the topsoil, it’s time to dethatch!
Brinly’s 48” Tow-Behind Dethatcher was designed for dethatching large lawns efficiently. Two rows of flexible tine tips comb the lawn, extracting thatch and depositing it on the surface where it can be mulched by the mower blades or removed using a sweeper or lawn vacuum. The drawbar’s adjustable mounting positions adapt to accommodate all tractor hitch heights. Unique to the DT-48BH is an inline wheel design, which levels the tray so that it follows the contours of the lawn without adding to the overall width of the attachment.
48″ Working Width
Our 48” dethatcher gently combs away dead grass, roots and other lawn debris to the surface, so water, air and nutrients penetrate to the root system.
The (24) 3/16″ diameter triple coil strength spring steel tines guarantee maximum efficiency, durability and thatch removal.
The transport wheels are located behind and in-line with the dethatcher tray to minimize footprint width and facilitate leveling.
The heavy-duty 14 gauge steel tine tray design provides maximum durability and holds additional weight when necessary.
Two Rows of Tines
The two rows of independently flexing tines remove dead grass and roots (thatch), opening your root system to water and nutrients.
