 Dethatching with a harrow rake

Before I purchase a harrow rake (looks like a 6 by 8 ft. section of extra heavy duty chainlink fence) I would appreciate any comments from those with experience with harrow rakes. With the teeth down and pointed forward, will they do a good job of dethatching a few acres of K31 fescue with fairly uneven ground in preparation for overseeding in the fall??? How do you store them--at Tractor Supply each one is usually in a tangled pile--do they untangle easily?? Is there a better way to dethatch three acres of K31 on uneven ground?Mike

 Dethatching with a harrow rake

I have used a small "carpet harrow" for many years on my lawn and have been pleased. Pull it in one direction and the teeth are aggressive for dethatching and leveling. Reverse the pull direction and the teeth are less aggressive. Turn it over and it is great for smoothing driveways. You can roll the basic unit up like a carpet for storage--it is not too difficult to untangle. I have added a light duty frame to mount it on the 3 point hitch. In tight quarters this is handy for backing up. You can't back up with the basic carpet unit--probably not a problem for you when doing several acres of pasture. The carpet harrow was originally invented by a man named Fuerst for use in pasture renovation and breaking up clumps of manure. These units can also be used at the same time you are overseeding with a broadcast seeder to blend the seeds into the soil.
