Last week one of my customers gave me an old pine straw rake he had and it has made my job so much easier. First let me say I do use my mower, blower and tarp most often to clean up leaves and pine straw. Sometimes in tight spaces or wet conditions I have to rake. This rake is 42" long, has 8" tines and a 66" handle it rakes up leaves and pine straw so easy and effortlessly. I had never seen one before, can't believe they don't sell these in Lowes, Home Depot ect. If you have to rake this is a time saver.
