Steel rakes have more of a grip to clean and lift heavy debris from your lawn. This rake, which has a plastic head, is perfect for picking up crunchy and light fall leaves.
The average number of tines on a rake head varies from 20 to 36; this one has 26. To cover more ground, it’s smart to choose a rake with more tines. An effective rake head collects from a broad area and gathers debris on the first sweep.
