One of the best ways to make your lawn better is to dethatch it. It involves getting anything off your lawn that shouldn’t be there in the first place, like dead grass and other debris that interfere with the growth of the grass by preventing water, fertilizer, and other nutrients from going deep into the soil.
The process of dethatching may be both exhausting and expensive if you will not use the proper tools to do it. Raking the lawn involves more time and effort because you will physically mow the debris.
On the other hand, renting a machine is more hassle because it will involve more time and effort in renting, transporting, and returning the unit. Further, not knowing the right tools to use will make you spend more money because some products available in the market costs up to three grand.
There is, however, a less inexpensive way to dethatch by using this mechanical machine (Greenworks Dethatcher). It is cheap, easy, and fast. And for a reasonable price, you can
get the job done and encourage the growth of a healthy lawn. This device converts a painful job into an easier one.
When I received the package, all of the pieces are individually wrapped, and there was no damage and dents. Surprisingly, it only includes three main pieces and a small bag of parts, a full replacement set of tines.
Assembling the device only takes a few minutes, and the instructions are clear from the manual. Despite the price, it does not appear to be cheap and flimsy material at all.
This device comes with an adjustable depth position to match every lawn owner’s needs. It has an effortless adjustment. You have to push and choose the height that you want. It has only one dial to set up all the settings.
I can easily switch among three different depth positions according to my preference. It provides greater control by getting dead materials and other debris from my ground by adjusting the blade height.
Thus, it provides safety measures to its users because there is no possibility of getting hurt by the tines when changing the height.
Efficient and Easy to Use
This device provides an inexpensive way to improve my lawn. The machine cuts a 14-in swath in a single pass. At first, I was skeptical about whether it can perform the job considering its price and size; I was amazed at the amount of thatch and other dead materials accumulated after using the machine.
The machine is effortless, and it is self-propelled. I just walked with it, and the machine did all the work. I was not compelled to push it at all. As a matter of fact, the machine itself pulls me along a little bit. Since it is self-propelled, it is less physically taxing to use.
It is easy to start and maneuver. It comes with a safety button, and after plugging it in, it is easy to go. The way it is used, and even it’s sound are similar to that of the vacuum.
It is also necessary not to go too fast. I have to walk at a slower pace to get more thatch and debris.
Compact and Lightweight
To make my lawn cleaner and more attractive, I needed to make more than one pass in my yard. Yet, this is not an issue because the machine is so light. Further, even if the machine’s path width and 10 amp power, it is fairly lightweight and compact.
This is light and easy to handle, unlike the gas-powered ones from the hardware. Since it is lightweight, it is a great solution for lawn owners because it gets the job done faster and easier.
It also comes with a special feature which is a foldable handle; hence, I can keep it anywhere I want because the storage space is very minimal. It can be safely stored in my garage and trunk. I can also use it anytime or when circumstances demand me to do so.
Runs in a normal household current
This device is a 10 Amp electric model and is compatible with a normal household current. It also comes with a 150 ft cable, but you can use your own cable expansion to keep it further. I used an extension cord that did not restrict me from using the machine. I recommend using a 12-gauge cord, especially to distance requiring 50 ft of the extension cord. It is important to get the right amount of power to efficiently and accommodate the device’s power.
However, there may be some issues with cord management. I started near the power outlet and then worked away from it to not run over the worked away from it to not and the extension cord to prevent disconnection during use.
Is it necessary to own a dethatcher?
Yes. Homeowners like me want an innovative and ecological approach to the lawn to want innovative and ecological approaches to dwelling on alternative options like doing
a unit or hiring a lawn care service provider when an inexpensive and useful tool on the market. When purchasing this tool, I considered the dethatching quality, speed, and convenience of the product. So far, this Greenworks dethatcher exceeds my expectations.
Is the machine worth it?
Absolutely. The device is a good investment. It saves me time, effort, and money from renting a unit from local hardware or hiring someone to thatch my lawn. It is pretty inexpensive for its quality. I got the satisfaction of removing all the debris, dead, and unwanted materials from my lawn in a fast and easy way for a reasonable price. Greenworks also care for its customers because it comes with a four-year warranty. This is so far the longest warranty as compared to other brands.
This tool turned out to be a top-notch device I can rely on to remove the thatch on my lawn. This machine gave me the best bargain. I will definitely recommend it. This is the best dethatcher for homeowners. You will be amazed because it is cheap, easy, and fast to use on a sizeable lawn. Moreover, the product has stood the test of time, but the quality never deteriorates.
