  • Unique Rake
  • September 15, 2015

Rake design has not changed for decades until now. Assembly took less than 2 minutes. All you need is a Phillips head screw driver. Holes are already predrilled. There are only 2 screws. The difference is in the head of the rank with 2 rows of tines to rake the ground. Very little clogging. Head is wider than the traditional head to cover more ground. A bonus tool is the hand held rake making reaching small areas a breeze. Everything is made of sturdy plastic and the handle is metal. Worth the investment.

Pros Durable, Vibrant Color, Multi Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Sharp, Stylish, Great Quality, Good Shape

I'm 56 years old, and have used pretty much every leaf rake ever produced. I like trying out the different rakes that seem to promise to take all of the drudgery out of what is, at best, a mundane and almost-never-ending task. Most of them fall short. Those that haven't usually get borrowed by one of my kids - and that is the end of that rake. THIS rake... this rake I'm not letting anyone borrow. If it proves to be as durable as it is useful, then I think I've found the best rake I've ever used in my life.

Well, it turns out I've been suffering with my 30 year old metal spring rake. I didn't know what I was missing! No splinters from the composite handle. My old wood handle gave me splinters. No pain from the wide swath. My old spring rake took forever with its small width. And finally, no loneliness. Invite your young child to learn the joy of raking! I'm serious, the little hand rake is a great introduction for the little ones. Oh, yeah, it is also handy to get in the small places. I cannot believe how much faster this is than my old rake. The design works better on my willow oak leaves too. If I had one complaint, it would be that on uneven ground, the wide swath may cause the rake to miss "divot" areas. This is one place the spring rake had an advantage. But seriously, folks, you want the wide swath. It rules over everything else. The quality looks decent and should last me at least 10 years. Maybe not 30 like my old metal one, but who knows, in 15 years or so it will be time for the next raking innovation.

  • 26" Wide!
  • September 17, 2015
  • Recommended Product

My Ames 26" leaf rake arrived while I was working in the yard. I had spent an hour trimming bushes and weedeating, so I had a lot of debris to rake and pick up. This rake make quick time of my work! With the dual times and a 26" width, my job was done quickly. Usually one swipe over an area cleared it as it doesn't leave pices behind because of the 2 sets of tines.. I also did not have to keep stopping to unclog the tines.... because of how it's designed, that is not an issue. It is extremely lightweight and yet sturdy, and manageable. The handle is custioned so it is comfortable and easy to use. A very nice feature is the detachable shorter hand rake for reaching under bushes or into small places. It snaps right onto the rake handle for easy access. Another reason to buy this rake is it is made in the USA! Ames is known for their high quality and this rake does not dissapoint!

Upon recieving this lawn rake I was holding off review because there simply was no leaves to rake in September. It is now October and a different story as we just came through a storm which came up the east coast but thankfully headed out to sea. But it did provide somewhat of a mess of downed branches and leaves which I was now well equipped to clean up with this fine light, wide, multi use rake. The rake has a snap-on green ploastic rake which allows you to clear out leaf debre under and behind bushes and hedges. The rake is very light weight and extremely wide with a second row of tines to deter clogging of leaves in the teeth. The handle is also light weight but strong and the smaller green rake snaps easily on and off to be with you when you need it to get to those areas where the large rake cannot go. Overall I am very pleased with the performance of this rake. It is light therefore not a back breaker. And very wide so it allows you to clean a larger area every stroke of the rake. If you have a large cement driveway and pathways and sidewalks like I do. It would be a good idea to use this rake in the grass areas only so you do not wear the tines down.

Pros Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Strong

If you have to rake, this is the tool you want to use. There is a double row of sturdy plastic tines to collect the leaves. The first row of sturdy tines look like miniature hockey sticks. They loosen up what you want to collect . The back tines are more like a regular rake and easily collect the loosened debris. With one rake stroke, you loosen what you want to collect and you collect it. I don't know if I'll get all the raking done in fewer strokes or not, but I do know that I'll be collecting more leaves than with the regular flexible plastic rake. It doesn't feel any heavier to me than a regular rake either. This rake also has a little rake that fits right on top of the big rake so it's easy to find when you need to reach tight or narrow spots.

At first, the thought of spending $24 on a rake seemed absurd. However, I took the plunge and after about 30 seconds of use, my conclusion was; the absolute best rake I have ever used or purchased. There really is no comparison to any other rake I have used. The handy auxiliary rake come in very handy, too! What can one say about a rake except one or two passes is all it takes to move all the debris... I trimmed about 3 feet off the top of a ficus hedge that was about 50 feet long. All the leaves, twigs and branches were easily move to a convenient pile. The small auxiliary rake comes in handy on the final clean-up getting every last bit into the refuse can and bags. I even tell my friends about it. I highly recommend this rake.

Wonderful product that gets the job done. Also, the additional bonus of the smaller rake, attached is great for small areas.

This rake is rather lite for its size and does a super job of grabbing leaves. I have a large lot with lots of trees that results in lots of leaves. With my old rakes I had to do several strokes to get all the leaves but not with this rake---once in a while I have to take a second stroke to get all the leaves but that happens rarely. Definitely an excellent rake!!

This did everything it said it would do. It snowed here recently, so I had a lot of wet, soggy leaves of different varieties to rake up. Not once did this rake clog, I only had to go over each patch once, and it's wide enough to cover a large patch of ground quickly. Well worth the price. My only caveat is that I've used it for only one season now; we'll see how it holds up over multiple years of use.
