Holes are approximately a 1/2-inch wide by 1-1/4 inches long by up to 3 inches deep. Tines pierce deep into the soil, hooking and lifting loose plugs of dirt that disperse quickly, spreading nutrients over the surface. No unsightly hard plugs accumulate on the lawn. The lifting action of the tines prevents soil compaction that is common with hollow tine aerators and allows good filtration of air and water into the lawn. The front-mount aerator attaches to the JRCO mount bar with 2 clevis pins. A tow-behind aerator is also available and comes complete with a 2-point hitch, rigid frame and swiveling caster wheels. JRCO/Great Northern Equipment JRCO DETHATCHERS JRCO's front-mount dethatchers are available in 36-, 46- or 60-inch widths for commercial walk-behind or riding mowers. The tine rake dethatcher offers a variety of uses throughout the growing season. It can be used for the first mowing of the spring to remove thatch, embedded leaves and debris. The patented tines lift thatch without damaging healthy turfgrass and at the same time comb matted grass, giving the lawn a clean, hand-raked appearance. After a hot summer, the tine rake dethatcher can be used to surface-aerate the soil. This promotes root development and makes room for thicker turfgrass. The dethatcher can be used during seeding operations to rake in seed and accelerate germination. Finally, the tine rake dethatcher can be used for the last mowing of the fall to leave a picture-perfect, clean lawn. The tine rake dethatcher quickly attaches to the JRCO mount bar with clevis pins.
