Snake Rake


Every year brings new handle designs for rakes and snow shovels, each purporting to put paid to the usual back miseries accompanying their use.

I don't think any tool can make up for the fact that raking and shoveling employ major muscle groups otherwise rarely used with such intensity.

From the website:


This ergonomically-designed rake's unique bent design and two comfort-grip handles give you better leverage and allow for more downward pressure.

Rake even wet, matted leaves standing straight, alleviating stress on your back.

Offset rake head sweeps leaves to the side, instead of over your shoes.

Lightweight tubular aluminum handle adjusts from 58" to 64" high and pivots for left or right hand use.

That's why I use my lawnmower - well, mostly because I'm lazy. It chops up all the leaves, puts it in the grass catcher and I dump it into the compost pile. Easy.

Sounds like just the thing for us taller guys. The raking itself is never the thing that wrecks my back - it's the stooping!
