Can this machine do either dethatching or scarifying? (You don't have to do both every time you run it).
Edit- it looks like 2 separate attachments, so yes.

I'm getting too old to be using the rake, and I think the rake is only doing a half ass job.

Also, how often do you have to replace the tines? It looks like they are $40-$50

Bought this in the spring at full price. It was sold out everywhere at the time. Worth every penny.

Was chatting with Amazon for a price difference match. They suggested me to return the previous one and buy again at a lower price. That is a stupid policy.

I don't believe that Amazon has ever offered a price match policy. Because of the dynamic pricing it would be a nightmare to deal with. They just make it a hassle so 95% of the general public wont bother.

I picked up the 10A RADLEY brand from HH for $99 last week and attempted to detatch over the weekend.
Still a tedious process. I only did half my lawn. The unit kept on overheating after 10 or 15 ft of continuous use and it would stop and would have to get restarted after a bit. So it was constant stop and go which I used that time to empty the bag that was doing the poor job of collecting.

My Lawn looks terrible now. I've started to water it like crazy and fertilized it as well and hopefully it will recover.

I did pick up nearly two full bags of crud.

The sun Joe pictured appears to be a better quality at obviously higher price.

The radley has a very cheap construction.

But given that I probably won't be using it for more than a few times I guess it's okay at the price point.

Never used a detacher before so not quite sure what to expect. I did read the link posted earlier on from New Zealand. It helped to put some things in perspective but keep in mind you would have to reverse the time of year.

You’re really supposed to use a de-thatcher in spring before the grass starts to get too long.

BTW, anyone has experience with the 13.5 or 12 amp Sun Joe Tiller/Cultivator? Both are cheaper at Amazon than Homedepot so I'm thinking of getting a price match. TIA

It is now August. Is it too late to dethatch? Plan to buy it but use it next spring but it will pass 180 day return policy.

Not sure where you are but you can use it in the fall, it’s still too hot in southern Ontario to dethatch. I’m no expert, but I’d wait to the temperatures drop to the low 20’s then dethatch and overseed.

Thanks for finding those tines - I've been looking for them. I've had this for about 5 years and lend it out as much (it probably averages doing 4 or 5 yards a year) as I can and just noticed this year that the tines are shorter and requiring me to lower the device to the -10 setting rather than the 0 setting. Not sure that I need to replace them yet but if they go on sale I will grab them. Not sure if someone I was lending it to was hitting too much concrete or what, but they have been relatively solid. The handle which engages the motor broke on me this year but I fixed it with some shims of aluminum epoxied to it.

I ended up price beating with Walmart.ca (same price as Amazon.ca) with HD. Just figure I better buy it now (reviews seem promising) and probably use it in the fall.

Just to alert people who want to buy online and ship to your door.

I ordered one from homedepot.ca shipped to my door. The package was sent from the US via UPS. Now UPS wanted me to pay $115 import fee. I contacted home depot and they told me don't pay the fee and they will contact UPS about this issue. The package is scheduled to deliver tomorrow. I hope they can sort it out before the delivery, otherwise I will have to refused delivery.

So if you can pick it up in store please do so, just don't order online and ship it to your door.

Thanks for the alert, I just checked mine and see a $110.01 owing on UPS... chatting with Home Depot right now.

Edit: Home Depot said they'll redirect the import fees to themselves. If it shows up before then, reject it and it'll get re-delivered when they've paid the fees

Same. $139.86 owing for import charges. Somebody messed up and will be a costly error. Have to chat with HD this morning. Pain in the butt.

Can you let me know where you are seeing the import fee on your tracking? From the order status on Home Depot, I clicked the tracking number and it shows that mine is coming from the US as well, but I do not see any mention of an import fee. Expected to be delivered this afternoon.

It says 'Import Fees are due for this package. Pay Now'. If you click on Pay Now it will show the fee.
Calling HD for this....
