TurfEx’s Thatch, Groom ’N’ Sweep Package is an attachment system designed specially for zero-turn mowers. The attachment can be converted from a sweeper to a dethatcher without having to purchase additional equipment.
Available in both 48- and 60-in. (122 and 152 cm) widths — models MT480 and MT600, respectively — the Thatch, Groom ’N’ Sweep Package uses a universal mount that fits the form of most major manufacturers’ zero-turn mowers. The attachment includes two rows of brush sections, which can be replaced with spring-mounted tines to turn the sweeper into a dethatcher in just a matter of minutes. To switch between the two, the operator simply removes a containment plate, and then slides the brush or tine sections in and out of the housing.
As a sweeper, the attachment is popular for both grooming and debris cleanup applications. The polypropylene brushes work equally well in forward and reverse, helping to clean out tight spots that a zero-turn mower is capable of reaching, according to the manufacturer.
The dethatcher version contains special tines for keeping turf damage to a minimum, whether the mower is driving forward, backing up, or conducting a tight turn. It also includes support wheels with adjustable height in order to optimize control while dethatching.
To minimize turf damage and eliminate gouging, the attachment package features TurfEx’s Flex Hitch design. This system allows the attachment to automatically pivot on the hitch as the ground elevation changes from one end of the unit to the other. A lift kit also is optional for raising the attachment off the ground when not in use.
To extend the versatility of the Thatch, Groom ’N’ Sweep Package, TurfEx offers a leaf pusher accessory, which mounts to the front of the housing.
Other zero-turn mower attachments from TurfEx include spreaders and sprayers. All TurfEx products come standard with a two-year limited warranty.
