Ok, not looking for the I don't use a rake opinion. We do and are looking for a rake that will last, specifically for the handle. Not looking for a government guarantee rake that costs on million dollars but looking for something economical but where the handle doesn't break or the tines bend easy. Toss out your thought. have done a search with no avail. Thinking I have tried them all but, hey never know.

lawn/leaf. Kind of use the same ones for shrubs, but have some smaller ones that fit in tight spots also. Mainly the all purpose rake. for wet leaves in tight spots you blower cant get and raking up the fines after blowing them into a pile. also fine raking of bark after doing shrubs and pruning.
thanks.
