    Default landscape rake or pine straw rake?

    I want to be able to rake up lawn areas that have lots of leaves, small branches, pine nettles and thatch. I looked at landscape rakes and one would be nice to do other kinds of work such as cleaning up brush and working soil or even the road. I have in the forum about some people using one to rake leaves and small branches, I even saw one person say they used the landscape rake to rake pine straw. I like the idea of a more useful tool, but fear the landscape rake may dig into the lawns.

    I have one, but added gauging wheels and a chain toplink. Play with the tilt until you get the results you want.

    I have both landscape rakes and a pine straw rake, both are good for very different things. For raking a developed lawn the pine straw rake is the way to go, does not hurt the grass yet does a great job cleaning up debris. The landscape rake is more agressive and can be very useful for clean up of all sorts of debris including small rocks.

    I don't find either rake to be usefull for gathering grass clippings that are cut short. I have used my ps rake to dethatch with couple of passes then used my collection system to pick it up and move to the mulch pile.

    Here some pics I have posted before of my pine straw rake, the new one Ted has at Everything Attachments is the best I have seen so far. The last picture is a lawn area that I used the psr to cover the seed with, used a spin spreader first then raked and rolled. Seems tp provide just the right amount of seed cover, so lots of other uses for this tool.
