    Dethatcher

    Does anyone know if JD offers a 3 pt. hitch mountable dethatcher? I have one designed for a 455. It mounts to the front of the tractor. It seems as I have seen one with a few modifications and it will go on the Cat 1 hitch of a 1025r. Thanks.

    I have been looking for one as well, so far I have not been able to find one by JD (I have a 1026r). I did come across one made by CMP Attachments in MN. The 50" lists for $259.00 & the 60" lists for $269.00.

    Has anyone had any experience with this company?

    Not familar with that company but their dethatcher looks good. Wonder if it's quick hitch compatible?

    Then again, with an item that light, it might not make much difference. But I would hate to have to remove the iMatch to use the dethatcher.

    It doesnt appear to be quick hitch compatible. In order to get the top link hooked iy needs to be offset forward so the hook can come straight up from the bottom

    Just went on their website, looks like they have revised it to be quick hitch compatible.

    You still have to go back and rake everything that it pulls up, correct?

    I've been thinking of using a lawn rake (7') set at an angle with light pressure to pull up the thatch, leaves, BS and leave it in windrows so I can come back with the loader and pick it up. Just not sure how much tearing up the rake will do (although I plan on totally reseeding anyway, so maybe it doesn't matter.)

    I bought the 60" back in March but still in the box as the ground and lawn are still not in a condition to use a dethatcher. The ordering went smooth as silk, ordered on Tues, shipped on Weds and arrive on Friday. I am looking forward to working with it but the outlook is rain until the weekend. I paid $270 with "free UPS shipping" which in a sense I can feel good about versus spending $240 with $30 shipping...:empathy3: I do intend on doing a product review once things dry out.

    I think most go back and "mow/vacuum" the thatch. This is what is advantageous of those dethatchers mounted on the front as it can be cleaned up in the same pass.

    I hope that make sense.

    I have the 50" CMP. Works good. Light enough to carry, but seems to pull up the thatch pretty good. It's a good fit for GTs with 3PH, which is what I use. Gathered a ton of thatch off my property. It will gather sticks OK too. Debris comes off the tines mostly by just lifting, very little effort. For the price, it's a good compromise. But if you can afford it also look at ETA's pine rakes. About twice the price, but heavier and closer spaced tines.

    Just bought one and took delivery of it... it's NOT truly JD QH compatible - there is not enough height between the 3PH frame to pick it up with the QH without removing the top link tube and lifting it onto the QH manually as it needs to rotate forward to clear the thick QH metal lower links. Not a big deal since it's a very light attachment, but would have preferred a truly QH compatible attachment from the seat of the tractor. I assumed that it was a legit QH compatible attachment due to the redesigned top link tube, but didn't actually ask the manufacturer, so a fail on my part! It's nowhere near as heavily built as I expected, but that doesn't mean it won't work well or last, time will tell... plus, it's a dethatcher, not a box blade.

    If I knew about the lack of true QH compatibility and the fact that it weighs 42lbs, I may have went with the EA pine straw rake instead (weighs 92lbs), but we'll see how it works out. If it's too light, I'll figure out a way to add some weight. Purchasers have left quite a bit of positive feedback about it so I have high hopes for it's performance, soooooooooooooo we'll see how it performs... I will possibly video it and take pictures when I get a chance to mow the lawn short and dethatch.
