This rake is a real workhorse!

This Leonard Bow Rake features a heat-treated 16-inch wide, 16-tine head. Unlike most T-head rakes, the tines of this head have a slight curve. We connect this head via a welded 14-gauge steel socket. We make the 62-inch handle using Northern Ash. We flame the handle to show off its natural grain and then apply a clear lacquer to the exterior.

Leonard Bow Rakes are excellent for spreading topsoil, mulch, and compost. Use the tines to spread the soil and then invert the rake to level it out. You can also use this bow rake to remove trash, stones, or other debris. The 16-inch wide head works well for nearly any landscape job and is narrow enough for tighter spaces. The curved tines pick up more material per stroke than traditional straight tines.

Our Bow Rake gives you professional quality at a value price. We rivet our welded 14-gauge socket all the way through the handle. This rivet ensures that the head will not pull apart from the handle like those held in place with a nail or screw. The ash handle is flexible yet sturdy and resists splintering. We back this tool with our lifetime warranty!

The bow rake of my dreams! Lee from VT wrote August 29, 2017

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!

Imported Rakes disappointed gardener from OR wrote December 02, 2012

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.

Leonard Bow Rake Tom P from GA wrote September 28, 2011

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.
