Brinly-Hardy Company, a 175-year-old manufacturer of high-quality lawn and garden equipment, recently announced the release of the DTZ-48BH, a 48-inch front-mount dethatcher for zero-turn-radius (ZTR) mowers. A manufacturer of tow-behind lawn and garden tractor attachments since the early 1960s, the new release marks the company’s entry into ZTR-optimized lawn care attachments.
ZTR mowers have experienced rapid growth in recent years, enabling users to maintain their lawns more quickly than ever before. The new Brinly dethatcher leverages the speed and maneuverability of ZTR mowers by being mounted on the front of the machine as opposed to trailing behind, which gives users greater control over the attachment. By moving the dethatcher to the front of the unit, users can now extract thatch and either mulch or collect it in a single pass, eliminating the wasted time of additional passes needed with tow-behind units. Featuring a patent-pending single-bolt design, the attachment clamps onto a wide range of mower makes and models in less than a minute.
“We’re excited to be able to extend our long heritage of innovation with the release of the DTZ-48BH, giving consumers and landscape contractors alike a viable solution for dethatching using the mowers they already own,” said Jennifer Thompson, Brinly-Hardy’s director of marketing. “We’re proud to say that we’ve incorporated the durability that the Brinly brand has been built upon into a cutting-edge product that embodies the future of the lawn mower attachment category.”
