I thoroughly enjoyed using this rake on smaller items like acorns & nuts shed by my trees,the regular rake cannot be adjusted like this one can,making it easy to gather & pick up.The only question is the durability of this rake,which will eventually be told as time wears on.

Great concept, but still not a great rake
This is a pretty good rake, but it won't replace the leaf rake in your garden shed. It's best feature is the adjustable width of the tines. You can use it get between plants in the garden or expand it to work a a regular leaf rake. It also can be shortened so it takes up little vertical space on the garden shed wall. There are two weak spots with this rack. The tines tend to flex too much to make a really good leaf rake. The leaves often slip through the tines as they flex. The extending handle isn't that sturdy as well and feels like it will pull apart if you pull too hard while raking leaves. We're not sure if this something to do with the brand or if it's simply a flaw in the design of this rake. Either way, you may be happier buying a regular metal or plastic leaf rake and a dedicated shrub rake.

Owned it for 3 weeks. Used it once so far. The tines flex more independently than traditionally designed rakes permitting you to rake over uneven surfaces like my rock garden. The retractable design also allows you to get into tighter spots while the telescoping handle comes in handy when it comes time to bag leaves. The rubber end on the handle was loose on my rake which is an unfortunate sloppy finish but overall a good little rake.

Lets you get in tight spots
This is a good rake if you have a lot of areas where the width of a normal rake is too large. You can adjust the tines and get between bushes or perennials. Lightweight and easy to store. Good product.

I bought this rake for spring cleaning around my lilac bushes. I liked the fact that I could make it more narrow with one easy step. It's also great for picking up leaf and grass piles as the narrowest setting is like having an extra hand to work with!

This is an easy rake to store or take along on projects. It is well made and works well.

I'm new to the gardening scene as we just purchased our new home in December. This is the first rake I've ever purchased, and it is great (I really like the adjustable width).

When my wife brought home this rake I thought it was not going to be around long. After 2 years now it is still going strong. Works great. I really like the ability to adjust the width.
