    we have a Turf Teq power rake that we have used for the last two years...the guys love it but it is always broken...the key way system they use to lock the power unit in line with the tool shears off very easily...they need to modify this to a pin and clip system...more time consuming but much more durable....the cables seem to stretch easily...and we are not sure the life span of the teeth.....
