Last night in Lowes, bought a new leaf rake. It's a 30" wide Craftsman (made by Ames) clog free design, plastic rake with wooden handle. We have a mixture of fescue grass and moss in out front yard, which is surrounded by 100+ feet tall pine trees, which means plenty of pine straw to be raked up several times. Using metal rake, usually takes the better part of a day. Using new rake, less than an hour to do same job. Rake carries a 15 year warranty. Cost less than $20 out the door.
