An essential part of lawn maintenance, regularly removing detritus from your lawn enables you to aerate your turf properly. Thatch, moss, twigs, etc, can clog up the breathing apparatus of your lawn, preventing important nutrients from getting in, taking away water and blocking sunlight.

Raking by hand can be strenuous, so this effective, tow-behind dethatching rake is just the right tool for freeing up a large lawn of this nuisance, helping your turf to flourish and grow greener and healthier.

With a working width of 102cm (40"), this Tondu towed dethatcher is suitable for larger lawns and equipped with 20 galvanised, heat-treated tines which really get into the thatch and haul it away, aerating the lawn and making way for air and goodness as it goes.

Quality rubber tyres prevent damage to the lawn and ensure a smooth ride and even working. A hand-operated lever lowers the 3/16" diameter tines into working mode.

Featuring a 12mm (½") hitch pin, the Tondu spring tine dethatcher is a value-for-money accessory suitable for towing behind most garden tractors.

Please note: Tondu products are subject to a running change during 2019 - the colour may vary from the image shown and this item may be supplied a hammered grey finish.

Robust and well made. Easy enough to assemble, clear instruction in clear English! Good quality parts. Works well even without additional weights. Pleased with my purchase.

Works well. But assembly was heavy going. Poor instructions and lots of different size spanners required etc. Need to have a think about using allen keys and a one or two different size nuts next time.

Arrived in less than 24hrs from ordering. Two nuts were missing but on request replacements were received very quickly. Assembly was straightforward if rather time consuming and the instructions could have done with larger print and clearer diagrams. The dethatcher itself appears to do the job adequately, not as thoroughly as a powered machine, but with a lot less effort. Good value for the price.

This is a great piece of equipment. It is well made and more sturdy than I had anticipated. Really good value for money and a very effective dethatcher.

I didn't know it was possible to obtain a rake for my ride on. It was cheap and is perfect for the large garden. Instructions to build were very good.

Well I have about an acre and a half of lawn which needs scarifying I thought but 12-14 inch petrol scarifiers would take for ever so I bought one of these at a very competitive price and thought i will give it a go. I built it up [about an hour] put a couple of concrete bl;ocks mon top fastened it to the back of my mower and set off. The effect was immediate and really impressive, once i had picked up the material generated with the mower the grass looked great and a couple of weeks later really showing the benefit of the operation. Money very well spent
