I am in the market for a good light weight rake. I want to use it for scratching the soil to plant grass seed in bare spots and to level soil in the garden. The one I have is heavy and the metal head keeps falling off the wooden handle. I can't operate a heavy rake.

The best I've ever seen and used is the Sneeboer American Garden Rake. It's made in Holland and has an all stainless steel head with very sharp teeth.

Hi birder17
I admit that the price is up there, but Sneeboer tools are really worth it. We sell a lot of these rakes and our customers rave about them and the quality. While I might be a little spoiled with access to all these fine tools, this rake will last my lifetime...and then some.
