Well, adapted my dethatching blade w/ the plastic strings to the EGO today and tried it out. Found the motor is well protected as I hit a high spot, stalled it and it immediately shut off and started flashing the amber lite. Gave it a few min. and it was ready to go again. That's good to know.

Mike, the Bristle Brush attachment for the Power Head does a decent job of dethatching. I bought it primarily to do light snow removal, but saw YouTube videos of others dethatching with it.

  The mower was all I can afford at this time. I just want to try it and if it doesn't work out I still have my gas push mower to do the dethatch.

  Update:  the EGO didn't much care for the dethatching blade. Only got about 1/2 hour from the battery. I put it back on my gas mower and used the EGO to vac up thatch where the leaf vac couldn't reach.
