The TA-40JD, more commonly known as the Thatcherator, is built with an 11 gauge steel weight tray for adding up to 100 lbs. of additional weight. Innovation at its finest, by locking down the spring tines into the aggressive mode, you gently aerate the very top layer of your lawn’s soil, while lifting out thatch all at the same time. Used to help prepare bare spots for seeding. In transport mode, the rib-tread wheels allow for crossing paved areas without damaging the tines or scratching the pavement. Tines come pre-assembled to the tray to decrease assembly time and are secured via safety wires to prevent damage to mower blades in the unlikely event of a breakage.
