I mounted the Agri-Fab 45-0343 Dethatcher to the Agri-Fab 45-0492 and realized it worked pretty well even though it was not included in the compatible models list. The dethatcher attached pretty well to the sweeper as stated in the product description.
One of the greatest features that intrigued me about the Agri-Fab 45-0343 Front-Mount Dethatcher was that it was so easy to assemble and it takes a short time to complete extensive yards. On the downside, I was displeased by the number of tines available on the unit. The spaces between the tines also seem to be too much. The hook that holds the dethatcher up did not impress me either. Overall this good product, but not without its faults.
