No longer is your zero turn mower confined to using a pull behind dethatcher designed for a lawn tractor or ATV. With this CMP Attachments front mount dethatcher you aren't required to take wide turns to avoid damaging the hitch and toung of a pull behind dethatcher. This Zero-Turn dethatcher turns with your mower. Mounting in front of the mower allows the extracted thatch to be mulched by the mower blades, for faster decomposition, or collected using a sweeper.
Thatch is a layer of dead grass, roots and other small lawn debris between the top growth of your grass and the roots. Thatch acts like a barrier shield to a healthy lawn, keeping moisture, air and nutrients from entering your lawn's root system. Removing this layer, or dethatching, helps your lawn's root system prosper. If you plan to seed, dethatching is an important step that should not be overlooked before spreading. Seed will often take root in thatch rather than the soil, and will die out quickly due to insufficient access to nutrients and water.
