Metal leaf rake
Clean up the lawn or your border with leaf rakes.
What to look for in a metal leaf rake
These rakes come in a variety of widths and some are even adjustable. Look for one that has an enamel-coated head to avoid rust. And a stress distribution bar helps keep tines from twisting.
How to use a metal leaf rake
This is a good multipurpose rake. Its springy nature is perfect for working debris out of evergreen and deciduous shrubs, carefully fluffing up a ground cover in spring or working the thatch out of the lawn if you don’t own a thatch rake. It’s also good for raking leaves from the lawn but the narrow tines can sometimes get clogged with skewered leaves or snag on a vine or ground cover.
Rakes have various extra features that influence convenience and usability. If you plan on using the tool frequently, one or more of these features may be worth considering.
A telescoping handle allows users to adjust the handle length to suit their preference or to accommodate multiple users with varying heights.
Adjustable rakes heads allow users to adjust the spread of the tines for different tasks.
A grabber tool built into the head eliminates the need for bending down to retrieve swept leaves.
A padded grip, usually made of rubber or foam, provides additional comfort and reduces hand fatigue.
A collapsible handle saves space and makes it easier to store the rake in a garage or shed.
What Customers Are Saying
This bow rake has close to 400 customer reviews on Amazon. Ninety-three percent of those reviews are 4- or 5-star reviews and only 5% are 1- or 2-star reviews, giving the products an average score of 4.7 stars out of 5.
While customers said the product was heavy, they liked that most of the weight was in the head. They said that this allowed the head to break through compact soil without requiring too much force. However, some customers expressed a desire for the handle to be longer.
This rake came fully assembled, allowing our team to quickly unwrap it and start using it. Since bow rakes are designed for raking and leveling fine materials like dirt and sand, we tested this product with dirt. We were able to rake dirt into a pile and level it with the back of the head without any dirt collection on the tines.
