Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aroyals Interesting concept, handle can be awkward
This is a very interesting set of tools, that all share the same handle. They all snap onto the handle, and are disengaged by a button at the top of the handle.
Each attachment (loose rake, shovel, broom and solid rake) had their own storage piece that you mount on the wall and that holds each attachment piece. The handle also has its own holder. Because the mounting pieces are all separate, there is no particular way the must be mounted on the wall, the user can basically put them wherever and in whatever order they want. The shovel is the only one with a dedicated holder because it is different from the other holders.
As far as putting each attachment on the handle, they don't just snap in, you have to press the button down, push the attachment on, and then release the button to lock the attachment in place. All of the attachments go on easily, the only one I managed to mess up was the shovel, which I managed to someone attach to the handle but didn't get it all the way locked in, so it was swiveling on the handle. But I just re-attached it and it felt very solid.
The set itself seems to be very well made, each piece is very solid and well made. But everything is also very heavy. The broom is about double the weight of our 'normal' broom, and for a smaller person or child this is a drawback as this broom is HEAVY.
The handle that came with the set is good quality, and had a handle on the end of it. With some of the attachments, such as the shovel, having a handle at the end is okay. But using the broom and the rake with the end handle was just very award. I hadn't even thought about it before, but when I'm raking or sweeping I tend to wrap my hand around the end of the stick, and for some reason having the handle in the way just didn't work for me. But if you are find with the handle on the end it could work great for you. The included handle was also about 6" shorter than our regular broom, which for me is not a big deal but for my 6'6 husband it is too short for him to use comfortably.
I think this set has potential, and it would be great if there were other handle options, such as a straight handle (maybe hide the release under a cap?). and handles of different lengths. I don't think it saves a ton of room, but I guess there is a little extra room under the attachments for something like a short toolbox or counter. If you are just looking for a set to have and don't plan on using your tools regularly, I think this is a good set. But if you're like my family, when we do "outdoorsy" stuff and work on our house we do it together, and with only one handle we can only use one tool at a time. But for a single person this set might be perfect, and has the most common tools needed around the home.

We love with the Handler System at my house! The quality is the best, the tools attach easily to the handle and are easy to swap. The handle is solid and very strong, and we can see why the manufacturer can offer a life-time quarantee. This set is a real space-saver due to the included wall mounts and the fact that it only requires a single handle. The selection of tools that are included cover basic needs nicely, although my son wished it had included a flat-head shovel too. My son, who does most of the work around here, was doubtful as to how good the quality of this set would be when I ordered it, but he is a real fan now. We both highly recommend the Handler System for light or heavy duty use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by parttimehack This product has solid features
This product should last you, it is made with some durability in mind. I have other tools with fiberglass handles and they last a long time, so when I saw this, I knew it would have some durability. I also did a side by side comparison with my other tools, which are singular in function (i.e. it's a shovel and I don't use it for any other purpose). All in all, very favorable comparison and quality. There is some heft (weight) to this tool, my only suggestion for improvement would be for the handle to be about an inch or two longer, it would provide additional leverage to overcome the added weight. If you're a person who does light work on, say, a vegetable garden, then this is pretty useful as I suspect you'll be using the gravel rake and shovel in combination. I should also say that the two rakes and broom are very complementary tools, meaning I can someone using these three tools quite a bit. There is not space savings in the garage for this, so I am going to forgo the hanging hooks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grumpyoleguy Great Purchase!
This tool set will go down in history as one of my best purchase decisions. No more wondering where my rake is or did I leave the shovel outside. I have a lawn care company that helps with spraying and such and the owner was very impressed with the quality and ease of switching out the heads, he asked me where I got the set from and indicated he was going to order some for his company. All said and done if you use rakes, shovel and broom you need to get this tool set period!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ProGardener Very Disappointed
I just purchased this set based on the positive reviews I read and was expecting to use it for a long time. What a disappointment! I attached the garden rake to the handle and barely used it for 30 minutes when it broke right off at the attachment. The soil I was using it in was nice and soft as it had recently rained. My other garden rakes I have had for years and they have never broken. Guess I'm going back to my old standby wood handled garden rake and returning this set. Great idea, too bad it wasn't engineered well, or at least the one I received wasn't.

I received the Lawn and Garden 5-Piece Tool Set with Garage Storage System in great condition! Each piece is very durable and well made. It was easy to assemble, very handy and stores neatly. Now working in my lawn and garden will be a breeze!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by troy Wonderful Product!
I purchased this set a few months ago and have been really pleased with the product. I have used each of the tools a lot, and they are doing a great job. For example, the shovel has already been used for digging holes in my yard and for shoveling a few cubic yards of pea gravel. The tools have functioned exactly as designed. The Handler customer service is personal and very responsive!
This product won't disappoint.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 This product broke on it's first day of use
Not to worry, their website says lifetime guarantee in a dozen places! ...However they haven't responded to my warranty request or the email I sent them and it's been 10 days. It's starting to seem like that line from Tommy Boy about "writing guarantee on the box." Hoping for rapid replacement to get the job done, now willing to settle on getting my money back.
