    CMP 3-Point Dethatcher

    I just ordered this to use as a dethatcher and a pine straw rake.

    Let us know how it works for ya. I would not expect the tine spacing to be narrow enough to work as a rake.

    I'm wondering that but there are two rows offset so I'm hopeful. If it won't it'll still cover seed in the food plots and of course detach.

    I have the 50" model, works great as a rake, also use it to rough up dirt for seeding, then go over it again to cover the seed up. it's really nice to be able to raise and lower it, I started playing with my top link adjustment to change the angle of the tines, more or less aggressive.

    Thanks Nick,
    I was hoping that would be the case. I had seen a few remarks saying that was their primary use for it but as stated earlier I was less than sure. I really appreciate your encouragement.

    It sure is. It took a few minutes to get the muscle memory to hit the same height each time.
