The newest improvements to the THATCH MASTER
dethatcher/verticutter are designed to add convenience and flexibility to this already popular dethatching and surface aeration equipment.
The dethatcher allows operators to make choices that adapt the machine to their unique set of circumstances when dethatching turf.
For THATCH MASTER, according to TurfTime Eq. President Glenn Musser, a variety of blades and spacing patterns have been available for a number of years as seen at
Now TurfTime Equipment engineers, responding to input from managers and superintendents, mechanics and operators, are providing additional settings and choices to allow the THATCH MASTER to be adapted to its surroundings.
THATCH MASTER Model Improvements include the following:
1. The new flip-down stand encourages careful set-up adjustments to be made in the comfort of the shop rather than out in the elements on the field.
2. Alternate hole patterns allow the three point hitch to be attached in a stationary position for dethatching flat sports fields, or in a slot to accommodate undulations encountered when dethatching or verticutting golf courses.
3. A weight bracket has been added so that operators can slip on suitcase weights to fit surface conditions and speed of operation, and promote continuous ground contact.
4. A heavier chain and sprockets are now used for cooler operation and longer wear.

Effective immediately, we are supplying #50 chain in all future chain and sprocket update kits. The #40 chain and the matching sprocket is no longer a stock item. This change is being made because we are seeing markedly imporved performance from the heavier system. This will be a very cost effective improvement for our customers.
