The workhorse of rakes!

A.M. Leonard's bow rake has professional quality at a great value. Welded 14 gauge steel socket has maximum strength. Heat treated 16" wide, 16 tine head is sized for any job. Ash handle is extremely durable for all applications, and is riveted to the head. Lifetime warranty.

Specs

  • Replaceable Ash handle
  • Replacement handle is our Product Number R16HDL
  • 62" handle
  • 16" wide head
  • Overall length 70"

Product Features

  • Head welded to socket
  • 14 ga. steel socket
  • Socket riveted to handle
  • Northern Ash handle
  • The teeth are more curved than most 'T' head rakes
  • 16" wide head has 16 tines
  • Bow style rakes have a little more flex than a 'T' head rake
  • Product Benefits

    • Welding the head into the socket adds stiffness and durability, and eliminates heads pulling from their sockets
    • The 14-gauge socket is riveted all the way through to the handle, not just held in place with a nail or a screw. This one won't pull apart!
    • Northern Ash is the best wood around for long handled tools. It is tough yet flexible, and resistant to splintering. The wood grain is 'flamed' to show off its grain, and then clear lacquered for additional weather and moisture resistance
    • The curved teeth means you can move more of what you are raking
    • 16 wide head is wide enough for most landscape jobs, narrow enough for tight spaces
    • Because bow style rakes have a little more flex than a 'T' head rake, you have some "give" when you hit that inevitable rock or root
    • This rake can be used to level and break up clumps of soil, remove trash, stones, and other debris. It is also great for spreading topsoil, mulch, or compost. Use 'tines down' to move soil, 'tines up' to level soil

    The bow rake of my dreams!

    wrote ():

    This is the iron bow rake I always wanted! For over thirty five years, I put up with bow rakes that bent, twisted, fell apart, and just plain broke. I've had them welded, replaced handles, and even wired them together in an emergency. I finally found this one about two years ago, and I've used and abused it for grading, pushing, pulling, chopping, etc. It still looks and works like new. It's a little heavier than the hardware store variety but I quickly got used to it, and I like the longer handle for grading material. I LOVE IT!

    Nowhere in the description does it say this rake was made in Taiwan. It says the handle is Northern Ash...which country is the northern part. Very disappointed that Made in USA products aren't being offered.

    This is a solid well built rake that should last a lifetime. You can feel the quality when you pick it up.

    Having had a cheaper bow rake fall apart recently, I wanted to find a rake with a socket that is riveted to the handle. The catalogue description fit the bill. I was hoping to find U.S. manufacture, but did not. The handle is long (as advertised), which contributes to the rake's weight. These two factors contribute to speedier fatigue among persons with smaller builds who use it. This is a very solid rake and I look forward to long use with it, but I would recommend adding a version in the catalogue with a shorter handle.

    I hope it will last! Time will tell, but it appears to be well built, and should last short of total abuse.

    AM Leonard Bow Rake

    wrote ():

    Initially I looked to purchase this rake on the hopes that AM Leonard still sold such items that were made in the USA - I had absolutely no luck searching for a quality rake locally, so I went online to the AM Leonard website. I was specifically looking for a well-made, long handled (I'm 6' tall) bow rake that I could use for both home gardening and to maintain my 300' gravel driveway and extensive walking trails on 21 acres. It was important to me that the socket was riveted to the handle - I have no interest in a product that won't stand up to a day's work. While so far the rake appears to be made to the standards I knew AM Leonard has, I was truly disappointed when it arrived to see it too was made in China - I have yet to find any product made in China that I would associate with the high quality that once was the hallmark of USA manufacturers, and for which I would proudly pay more for. Time will tell, but so far I have been satisfied with the rake's performance, if not with its origin.

    Excellent heavy duty rake. Top of rake is good for leveling the soil and entire rake is top quality.

    This rake is the real thing. I went to the local big boxes and all they had was chinese rakes with weak...white wood short handles. I took a flyer on this and came out the winner. This rake has a nice long ash handle, solid steel bow and tines, a good feel, and actually looks like something you might find on a commercial paving truck.
