    ive really used and sometimes abused my leinbach 6' rake. Have moved dirt, spread rocks, pulled brush and generally just used it to the max, still as straight as the day i got it. Best $475 i ever spent.

    Welp, I did it!
    I went today and purchased a 6' Fred Cain landscape rake. I appreciate Everybody's opinions but want to especially thank GIJOE for introducing me to the Fred Cain brand. And yes, I bought it from the same place you did, Joe. The man liked to have talked me to death! Mr. Alvin is a firm, but friendly feller.
    It is a Very well built piece of equipment. I looked at Woods, Bush Hog, Land Pride, and King Kutter, and a Chinese brand.
    The Fred Cain was by Far the best made, for the money. I'm so glad I didn't make a mistake on a much more expensive brand.

    Thanks to all,

    Yes, Alvin is a very nice guy, and very knowledgeable. He's farmed his whole life and knows his way around tractors. The man definitely likes to talk. Whenever I need to go by his place, I usually set aside a whole day. There is no telling how long I will be there. I hope the rake doesn't disappoint you and proves to be a good one.

    just wanted to weigh in that the TSC one is mostly junk - I own one, and its best considered as the start of a project... bends at a breath of air.

    Too many other random attachments to list (or to own, per my wife) and a really bad tool addiction. But at least I haven't bought a dump truck or bulldozer. Yet.

    Sat I bought My King Kutter 48' (new) but paint faded from sitting around for sometime for $225. A sandblast and paint will fix it like new.

    Same here, looking for a rake at a reasonable cost vs. heavy duty. I can't see spending $5-600 for a 5' rake that isn't going to be used all the time, but I also don't want to buy a POS.

    Any suggestions for my area? I heard bad about the TSC stuff already.
