          A:  From what I see, 1-piece forged 15-tine tempered-steel rake head I have had this rake for about 6 years. Replaced a very old one. It is a very durable rake. Have had absolutely no problems with strength. Hopefully, this will help.

            Broke after 2 uses. Poor built and make sure you keep your receipt even though it’s a ‘lifetime warranty’

            Garbage Quality
            Bought the rake due to supposedly being top quality and lifetime warranty. Not even 2 yrs old, rarely used, and stored in shed and the crap quality wood insert is rotten. Try to replace, but need to have receipt...who keeps a rake receipt??? Never again.

              Fake Lifetime Warranty
              The lifetime warranty offered on this product is essentially a fake. Unless you save the receipt (who saves the receipt for a rake?) they will not honor the warranty. I bought this product because it supposedly has a forged bow and tines. However, it broke after a couple of years of light residential use. (I am 69 years old. I am not using ANY garden tool that hard.) See attached picture. Warranty - useless...

                Keep the Receipt
                With a lifetime Warranty, make sure you keep your receipt. This rake might have lasted 2 Spring clean up seasons.

                  Company doesn’t stand behind their product.
                  I bought this rake about 2 years ago. It’s had a comfortable life leaning against my garage wall. Even took a sabbatical in storage for over a year while we moved cross country. But when I took her out to the garden the other day her head fell off! She’s only been outside a handful of times. Obviously disappointing. The company won’t honor the warranty without a receipt even though it’s obviously their rake and barely used.

                    Wood connector under red sleeve rots
                    I have purchased 2 of these rakes and on both wood connector under red sleeve rotted and rake broke. Ames replaced one of the rakes (good one in picture) without any questions or receipts but refused to replace 2nd rake without receipt. I think they are just getting too many replacement requests for this junk under their lifetime warranty. I would suggest just being honest and give it 1 or 2 year warranty. Other Ames tools can have same problem (garden hoe).

                      Rake Broke, Wood Inside Handle Rotted
                      The rake head on this Razor-Back bow rake fell off. Material inside the handle is wood and it rotted and broke.

                        Broke with light use. Handle is not fiberglass
                        This rake looks great but is very poorly made. Handle is marketed as "fiberglass" but it is actually flimsy wood covered by a fiberglass sleeve. This rake broke within a short time after being used a half-dozen times for raking loose dirt and mulch. I thought this rake would last a lifetime based on the "lifetime warranty" but don't count on the warranty being honored by Razor-Back unless you still have the receipt.

                          Rake broke with normal, refused warenty
                          Razorback is over priced and only reason we purchased it was for the warenty but they expect you to have your original reciept or they will not honor it

                            Broke during first use.
                            The steel rake broke while I was smoothing out dirt on my front yard. Not a professional quality tool whatsoever. I was hoping to get a quality made in the USA tool. I did not.
