The Groundskeeper II Rake w/Fiberglass Handle

The Groundskeeper II Rake w/Fiberglass Handle
Item #: 32230
$28.95
The best twig and mulch rake around. The round and stiff tines of the Groundskeeper work differently than the flat, flexible tines of other rakes. While flat, flexible tines are great for gathering leaves without disturbing the ground, the Groundskeeper tines sacrifice a little grass to get the job finished and workers in the truck!

Description

Details

After trying this new rake design out at home, I considered tossing it in the trash. The Groundskeeper was complete overkill on leaves and darned near tore a blank spot in my yard. The following week, after reporting back to my buyer what a joke it was, he forwarded an e-mail from the inventor requesting I test it on clean-up of twigs, bark, or stump grinder chips. “Fair enough,” I said. Several weeks went by before I tried it again, but indeed, this rake moves sticks & twigs, grinder chips, bark & mulch and even gravel like nobody’s business. The round and stiff tines of the Groundskeeper work differently than the flat, flexible tines of other rakes. While flat, flexible tines are great for gathering leaves without disturbing the ground, the Groundskeeper tines sacrifice a little grass to get the job finished and workers in the truck! Even better, I discovered that the Groundskeeper does a killer job of removing leaves from bushes by allowing green stems to pass between tines without harm. This rake must be used to be believed. 21-inch head, 28 steel tines, 55-inch fiberglass handle, 2 pounds.

Best rake ever Review by Hoorf
Quality
Price

As live-in caretaker for a traveling landlord's home, I was responsible for doing a great deal of raking year-'round: grass in the spring and summer, pine needles and branches in the fall and winter. My landlord introduced me to this rake after watching me struggle with a traditional rake against branches. First sight suggested this was a wimpy, cheap rake, but after using it, there were some noticeable things: first, it tackled everything I pitted it against, including pine needles...without hooking gravel! Second, it didn't clog. Third, it aggressively handled branches with the greatest of ease. Fourth, using downward pressure wasn't necessary to maintain grab, because the generously-radiused, spring-loaded tines really grabbed and held! This took a great load off my back. The rake only looks cheap; it is deceptively sturdy, even rugged. And lightweight. It may not be ideal for quality turfwork, as it can snag aerated lawn, but for all else, it's the only--and last--rake you'll ever need. I recommend it wholeheartedly without reservation.

Outstanding Rake Review by Philo Beddoe

This rake is easily worth double what they're charging for it. Rakes up bark, leaves, and medium sized twigs with the greatest of ease. Extremely durable and well made. Every now and them one of the tines will overlap another one but it's easily remedied. If you're on the fence about this, don't doubt yourself and just pull the trigger on purchasing it, I highly recommend it. You'll never find a rake of this caliber at any big box store, and if nothing else, the fact it's made in America should alone be enough to persuade you to purchase it. (Posted on 7/20/2015)
Good Rake, Terrible Handle Review by Seth

I have purchased about 10 of these for my company and absolutely sent this company more business. However, the handle needs to be improved. Or at least another option should be available for the handle. The next round I will add the wooden dowel like the other review suggested. (Posted on 8/22/2014)

Wonderful. Moves large quantities out of the lawn quickly using light pressure. Removes moss easily. (Posted on 4/21/2014)

Bought this just to try out and am highly sold on it. It moves waaaaay more debris than the regular rakes we buy for our Tree Company. My only issue with it was that the handle is HOLLOW and my concern was it may break easily so I just did an easy improvement on it. I put a 55 inch wooden dowel on the inside of it before putting it together and now its solid as a rock. (Posted on 12/29/2013)

These rakes are the BEST we have. They are very practical, lightweight, and MADE IN THE USA. We would not buy anyother rakes for tree work. (Posted on 4/22/2012)

Our tree service company uses these on every job, and they have cut cleanup time by at least a 3rd! We don't even carry regular leaf rakes any more. (Posted on 12/19/2009)
rake sticks Review by Andy
Quality
Value
Price
raking sticks and bark debris and wooden shrapnel tends to be very annoying work with a leaf rake, because of the tendency to jam large pieces across the rake due to the tapering gap between tines. This rake doesn't have that locking taper to the gap. It still grabs pieces and weaves them between the tines, but the difference is: it grabs little stuff only-so the rake is not neutralized by a big piece in the first few swipes. The annoyance factor is lowered to practical levels for raking sticks out of grass. (Posted on 5/10/2009)
