1/32" Blade For Mataway® De-Thatcher And Ren-O-Thin® Power Rakes, 516901
De-Thatcher and Power Rake steel fixed blade or knife for heavy duty turf, breaking up thatch to promote growth. Blades attach to a horizontal reel and can be easily changed without tools.
- 1/32 inch thick
- .5 inch or 1 inch spacing
Blades are removed from the reel by removing the pillow block and the reel nut on the end of the reel, opposite the drive pulley. Notice how the blades are spaced before removing them to assure proper installation of the new blades.
When reassembling the reel, it is important to start and end with a spacer. DO NOT assemble with a blade next to the shaft nut.
When installing new blades, note the hexagon shape of the shaft. Install the first blade onto the shaft, then rotate the next blade so it is one lobe forward (60 degrees off center) from each previous blade. Keep installing the blades in this order until all blades are installed. Mount the reel shaft, with new blades in the reverse order it was removed. After 4 hours of use, check reel nut for proper torque.
