I ordered the de-thatcher kit from CPO last month and last weekend (4/9/16) spent 20 minutes setting up my Honda Tiller with the kit. After reading the instructions it was easy to assemble and following the use instructions it was easy to use. It took me about 30 minutes to de-thatch my front yard of about 2,500 square feet in 45 minutes. I was amazed at how much dead grass was de-thatched and racked up 6 bags of dead grass quite easily. It took longer to rack up the dead grass and put into yard waste bags than it did to use the de-thatcher. After a few passes with the de-thatcher I got the knack of using it and after that it was a breeze. Since it's a tiller attachment it is like using a tiller expect some pull on your lower back, but it is much easier to handle. The good grass that came up was so minimal I couldn't believe how well it worked and how easy it was on the living grass. I watched several youtube videos first by searching for Honda de-thatcher and that made it easier to see how it works. When I was finished I put down some pre-emergent and fertilizer and watered it in right afterwords and my yard is greatly improved in growth and appearance in a week. It's easier on the yard than those flail lawn mower attachments, or those purpose built large big box store rental machines that cut or tear up my yard. I used this on hybrid fine and medium drought tolerant fescue. I wish I had known about this product years ago when I bought my Honda tiller! I ordered it from CPO and it arrived in very quick fashion and in excellent condition. What a great store and product! No more paying some yard service for a somewhat okay power raking and expensive treatment when I can do it whenever I want on a nice spring or fall day. If you're healthy enough to run the Honda FG110 tiller for a small part of your day then don't hesitate on using this - I highly recommend it! Bottom line is it works and isn't harsh on the yard and it does exactly what it is supposed. Checkout the youtube video by searching for Honda FG110 Mini-Tiller w/Dethatcher Attachment and you'll see how easy it is to use and then come back and get it from CPO. Great product and great sales and service from CPO! I wish I would have taken video or pictures, but I'm just Happy Happy Happy! My only tip on using the de-tatcher is to walk at a steady pace like a slow walk and just let it do it's work. If it starts bouncing on you, let off the gas, stop, backup up a couple feet and start over again. If you have a yard that has some lumpy uneven ground it might jump on you, but stop and start over and you'll get through them without the de-tatcher wanting to bounce on you. I had about 4 places in my yard that happened, but stopping and backing up a couple feet and slowly starting over again and it breezed right through without bouncing.
