This is a professional quality rake. It is light weight because the handle is a hollow fiberglass tube. The metal tines are individually sprung. Each spring gives a consistent pressure across the head. Good for leaves, pine needles, garden mulch, and light de-thatching. I really like mine. Purchase from www.rittenhouse.ca
