Custom front mount 72" dethatcher for a John Deere sub-compact.
This was built out of 2 dethatchers on custom mounts that bolt onto the frame in John Deere original holes on the frame.
I have it on a John Deere 955, but pretty sure it will fit on most every John Deere 55 and 50 series and likely others (955, 855, 755, 655, 950, 850, 750, 650 etc).
I reconfigured the 2 dethatchers by reconfiguring them and their parts and adding a few parts to mount it easily.
I have extra wheels and tines that go with it from the pair of dethatchers.
The widest you can get for a john Deere is 54" I believe, and they are manually lifted and lowered.
I added an electric (12 volt DC) linear actuator to lift and lower it.
The lift piece simply clamps onto the front weight bracket of the frame
The UP/DOWN control sticks to the fender on a magnetic base and the wiring harness sticks to the frame with magnets also, just wire it to your battery.
Linear actuator will lift 1300 lbs and has an 8" stroke, way overkill, but it works well and will be durable.
Works great to dethatch and mow in the same pass in the Spring or whenever you desire.
Only selling because I recently purchased a front power broom to dethatch.
Only used on my personal lawn, no commercial use
I have a video of it lifting and lowering, that I cannot post on craigslist, if you are interested.
Open to reasonable offers.
If it is listed it is for sale.
