Golden Gark Multi-Purpose 3-in-1 Rake, Shovel & Sift Tool
Should have been nice
I would have loved this rake but unfortunately mine did not come with the screws to put it together. I understand these come from the Netherlands but someone needs to do some quality control. Can't get the kit so guess this one will have to go back.
Filled a 10 gallon can in less than 7 minutes and I am 62 years old.
Need a smaller model for hand raking between plants.
It is another tool in my garden arsenal of things to use. I use it a little but somehow it is awkward and just is not a tool I would buy again if it broke. It cannot lift much mulch at a time....bends forward at blade section as if weight limit is reached very soon. Awkward to rake with. Glad others like it.
We use this for cleaning our horse stalls. It is fantastic! I gets everything and you do not lose the manure off of the sides! Light weight and easy to use. Recommend to everyone!
THE BEST RAKE!!!!!
The leaves are just starting to fall. I used this rake for the first time today. It works
amazingly. In fact my 8 yr old granddaughter wanted to do the rest of the raking by herself and she actually did it. She raked and used it to pick up the leaves and put it in the trash. She even said that it works so well. Honestly, it really is a great rake!
I received my Gark about 2 months ago, and I love it. I live in Calif. so my Sycamore trees are just starting to lose leaves. Sometimes I don't even need to rake up my leaves first, I just walk around the yard and scoop them up. It sure has saved my aching back. I also think this would work for picking up manure in a stall. Especially if you are sorting the manure from sawdust shavings. It would have worked for me, when I used to have horses.
I have used this rake in the summer. It was okay. I am not impressed with the rake. It is light-weight, that is okay with me. I am waiting to do leaves. I am not sure it was worth the money, but I am using the rake.
This product performs exactly as presented. It is a great tool for gardeners.
A great buy!
This rake is wonderful! I bought it because I have lower back problems and bending over to pick up leaves was incredibly difficult for me. It was easy to put together. Using the rake was just amazing! Previously, I could only do maybe one bin of raking. With this rake, I did the bin *plus* four paper yard waste bags! I had NO back pain when I was done. None! I am so glad I bought this. As for the comment that it was "flimsy"; the rake tines are polycarbonate - they're practically indestructible!
Short and weak
I bought this to clean stalls as reviews were favorable. Doesn't work for me. I'm 5' 4" and this is too short for me to work with comfortably. It is also very weak. It may work for very dry lightweight leaves, but nothing with any weight. Arrived with no packing slip/invoice and very large box - not worth trying to send back.
Works quite well
I was not sure how this would work on picking up pine needles and ficus leaves from the gravel in my AZ backyard but it works pretty well. I used to throw out a lot of the gravel along with the leaves but now a bit of a shake and the stones fall out.
I LOVE this tool! It works great and is light weight. Get yourself one!!!!
