Golden Gark Multi-Purpose 3-in-1 Rake, Shovel & Sift Tool
Awesome garden tool!
Finally something that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Makes picking up leaves and bagging them a breeze. I've used it about 5 times so far and it's worked great! My mom and I share it, luckily we only live 2 blocks from each other! My only suggestion would be is to make it metal. It doesn't "rake" as well as a metal rake. I've actually used the metal rake to get all the leaves, pine needles raked up and used the gark to load them into the bag. No bending over and no touching wet leaves...awesome! But overall, an amazing product!
easier on the back
I have 5 bulging discs in my back. I thought I would give this rake a try.
Much easier to use than any other rake I have tried. I couldnt get the entire front yard done at one time, but I was able to rake for 20 mins before I needed to stop. Which is about 4 times longer than with a regular rake.
Also to be honest, the under part of the leaves were still wet from a rain a few days ago. I think if all had been dry, I could have raked a bit longer before needing to stop and rest.
I used this rake today and it's great! It made it so easy to rake the leaves, scoop them into the lawn and leaf bag and crush them down. It made this unpleasant chore pleasant. I didn't have to worry about sticking my hands in the leaves and getting bitten by a spider (or worse). Great product!
The Best Yard Tool I own
I cannot say enough about this yard tool. I have been out picking up my neighbors
leaves just because I CAN! I am 72 yrs of age and this is so easy to use. No more
bending over to pick up leaves. I would give this 10 stars if allowed. I hope I can hold
on to this. Everyone that sees it wants to borrow including my kids. I think I am going
to hid it so they can't take it with them.
I bought this as a gift for an avid gardener. I have one that I use all the time and knew she would just love it.
It's lightweight and takes on lots of chores...mulch, leaves, hedge clipping, even dog droppings!
If you have a yard, there's always something you can find to use this for.
MUCH BETTER THAN A PLASTIC RAKE
This is a great tool. Such a time saver compared to a plain rake bkz it also can be used as a shovel which prevents a lot of repetitive bending. Made of very sturdy material, not at all flimsy. Takes only a few minutes to assemble (you'll need a screw driver) & can be put to work right away. Have only used it twice as rake & shovel since received 2 weeks ago but took less than half the time for cleanup than usually taken with a regular plastic rake. Cleans up with a rinse from the hose. Plan to use it this weekend as a shovel, sifter & spreader for wood chips in garden beds to keep out weeds. Would make a great gift for a gardener or whomever the person is responsible for keeping the yard clean including pet &/or horse waste removal. Highly recommend.

Our large yard is heavily treed with hickory & oak which means a lot of nuts and a lot of squirrels to break open the shells! Usually it's a pain to try rake the nuts and shells. This shovel/rake is absolutely perfect...as Dan demonstrated! We also have a 3-level composite deck that is constantly covered this time of the year. Using the tines as a rake or a shovel, makes for an easy clean-up...no scratching the deck boards.
EASY ON THE BACK!
This is a very light weight and easy to assemble product. Though the little caps that are used to cover the screws are rather useless, only one would stay one. I used this shovel along with the sun joe chain saw over the weekend and I'm very happy with it. The gark will come in handy when the leaves start to fall, because a typical autumn can yield 45 bags of leaves in a season and that includes my neighbors leaves that blow in my yard. No more bending over. Excellent purchase.

They got me again! Easy to put together! Plastic covers keep falling out and the screws
don't hold, HAD to go to the hardware store and purchase longer and wider screws to make this sturdle! Not worth the price,
Similiar item at local hardware for 14.99! and no S&H
When it comes to a garden tool, this one is the most versatile ever! It is lightweight yet indestructible. You can easily maneuver it between plants or simply rake the lawn. You can use it to scoop up a pile of leaves or twigs, or sift out stones. This is everything they say and more!

I bought this back in January and am just now really getting to use it for the main purpose I purchased it for. My neighbor has a 50+ year old black walnut tree in his back yard, yet due to it's size, I get probably 90% of the black walnuts falling in my yard each year. I would have to go out with a heavy duty rake to get them into a pile and then try to use a shovel to get them into my trash can. The process was excruciating, back breaking, and took hours. I used the Gark today and scooping the walnuts up was a breeze. I am really pleased with this product and purposely waited to do my review until I had put it to the real test. The tines are plastic, but if you watch the presentations, they tell you that so it shouldn't be a big surprise when you get it home. Great product!
Don't Know What I Did Without It
I have been using my Golden Gark for several years now With all my physical problems it has been a Godsend. I ordered a second as a backup, but the first is holding up beautifully. Great quality product. Thank you QVC for making my life so much easier.
