This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If your yard is looking brown and haggard, it might be due to an accumulation of dead grass, leaves, and other debris that's choking off the soil. These tow dethatchers can break up your dirt and remove the top layer of detritus, allowing air, water, and sunshine to reach your lawn. They're easily pulled behind riding mowers and ATVs, making them ideal for maintaining large, spread-out areas. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 05, 2018:

We primarily focused on durability of the machine, which is especially important in rocky terrain, as well as its ability to cut through refuse. To the latter end, special attention was paid to models that can support quite a bit of weight and that have strong, heavy-duty tines.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
