An excellently priced towed dethatcher from The Handy lawn care range, this 40" dethatcher can be towed behind any make of lawn tractor or ride-on mower. Use in the spring, summer and autumn to draw out matted layers and thatch which can build up when mowing without collecting.

The Handy THTD dethatcher is equipped with two rows of ten spring-loaded tines which effectively rake out roots, leaves, grass clippings and other small vegetation which threaten to inhibit the growth of your lawn. The dethatcher incorporates a weight tray, which can be ballasted to provide deeper penetration into the top layer of soil.

A useful single-lever transport handle allows the tines to be raised for transportation, and a universal hitch pin is included.

Excellent tools from Handy, robust, durable and most practical. I have 2 towed Moss/grass rakes and a Handy garden trailer. Excellent and inexpensive products.

Rather fiddly to assemble and the instructions were not the clearest, but once completed and weighed down with 8 bricks, it has done an excellent job of dethatching my lawn - it is easy to use and has brought an astonishing amount of thatch and moss to the surface. The lawn looks better than it has for ages!

The dethatcher was easy to assemble with no missing or extra parts. It appears quite substantial and could be towed by our mower, however it has not yet been used in earnest so it is rather premature to comment further now.
