Q: Is the Precision Products 42" Dethatcher adjustable to regulate the depth the tips dig into the grass?
by Larry Morris from Tennessee on June 19, 2013

A: Larry - the only way to "adjust" the depth of the tines is by adding weight to the weight tray. Additional weight in the weight tray will cause the tines to dig in deeper.

Precision Product Dethatcher
It really works well. Easy hook up and easy off. It dethatches great. Our lawn was so thick the rain did not penetrate and it stirred up a lot of dust when we mowed. The dethatcher pulled up a lot of thatch. It comes mostly assembled but we did have to tighten all the nuts and bolts on it. Works Great!

Very Pleased With The Dt42gy
I just finished assembling this dethatcher (haven't used it yet) and I couldn't be more pleased. It's clearly a heavy-duty, very well-made unit and I expect it to do an excellent job and last for year upon year. It comes mostly assembled, which is really nice. I would recommend tightening all the bolts and removing any play in the wheel assemblies (easy to do) before using it.
