I snap 4 or 5 rakes a year loading my leaf loader. Just the nature of the beast. When I set up for cleanups I go in my hand tool shed and grab 4 or 5 or 6 leaf rakes. When one breaks I toss it in the trailer cage and grab another. I keep the broken ones and try to rebuild them. Some break the rake and some break the handle. Anything to save a buck or 2 or 15.
