Hands-on review of the Groundskeeper II Rake 55”
As an owner and user of dozens of gardening and gardening tools, including at least six other rakes, I have found the Groundskeeper II rake to be a very useful addition to my tool shed. This rake has a very unique design in the shape of a tine and is very light and easy to use. With a little pressure, you can pull up the dead grass and lift it enough to breathe the dormant grass. The rake is not really meant as a fine blade grass rake as there is too much space between the tines, however for detaching the lawn it is simplify amazing. It is also not ideal for leaves and pine needles as they sometimes gets stuck and you have to clear the rake manually by hand. Due to its wide width, it was possible to cover a large portion of your lawn in a very short time. There is also a smaller version available is you are looking to work a small lawn or portion of your yard.
Both pull and push modes are very useful for moving soil and root coverings around the garden. It also really excels at removing twigs, sticks and small rocks. The Groundskeeper II Rake is easy to use and very effective at removing dead grass.
- Does not tear up grass roots when lifting out thatch.
- Very lightweight, just 1.1 pounds, easy to use and maneuver.
- Easy to assemble.
- Possible to buy replacement parts.
- Somewhat pricey, but in our opinion still well worth the cost!
- The handle is not sturdy enough and breaks easily.
Overall, I sincerely recommend the Groundskeeper II Rake.
