Answer:
Hello there,

No, GreenWorks does not offer a bag for this unit as it does not collect well. It simply pulls thatch up to the surface. The Sun Joe bag would not be compatible.

Yes, you can, as long as the ground is not wet, care needs to be taken not to totally destroy the stolon network in your lawn.

Answer:
I have ~1/4 acre of grass. I'd recommend a long Saturday to get through the whole thing; dethatch, rake, and bag. I'll generally take 2-3 days to do my whole yard (after work plus a saturday). My grass is thick in most areas and this moves slowly through them.

Answer:
I have never tried it on compacted leaves, but it should be no different than racking out lawn thatch/old grass. I think it will work without any problems

Answer:
I live in NH, purchased one of these last year and love it. I had / have about 500 sq ft of a thick, dense spaghnum moss in my 7500 sq ft lawn. The Greenworks removed most of it, i would estimate about 90 to 95% or more but it required several passes.

I had / have about 500 sq ft of a thick, dense spaghnum moss in my 7500 sq ft lawn. The Greenworks removed most of it, i would estimate about 90 to 95% or more but it required several passes. The weight of spaghnum moss it pulled out was mind boggling, but it did leave a thin patchy layer which would so well established it would need really deep scraping to pull out. It's a bit like combing your hair in that once the tangled spaghnum has been ripped out the tines slide through the untangled straight hair that is left. I treated the residual moss with Scotts moss control which was much more effective because the moss layer was so thin. Is it gone..no. Is it a lot better such that grass could grow in that area.. Yes.
By the way I have about 25 to 30 thousand sq. ft of use on the original tines and they are ready to be changed.
It's a great help in keeping my lawn looking nice... Good luck see less

Answer:
I reseeded right after using this machine and my grass came in beautifully ( I also used an organic fertilizer). Once you pull up the thatch and moss the nutrients can actually get down into the soil and roots.
