I saw a Ratchet Rake at my local TSC sticker price at $299.99. I was hoping they didn't have the mounting hardware as it was just sitting outside kinda out of place and I was going to try and get a deal. They ended up having the box containing everything and I couldn't get a discount according to the employee so I decided to buy it and went to the register. When the cashier rang it up I already had the three bills in my hand to pay. She states the total at $106 and change. I paid as fast as i could and got the hell out of there. I figured it may have been a mistake.
I checked the website and TSC shows a Tarter farms rake which looks like the same thing but black for $349. I read a few posts when researching the ratchet rake that were from like 5 years ago where people were buying the larger size for $99 at TSC because they were discontinued. I don't know how long the 52" model has been discounted, but I figured I would let others know. If you come across a Ratchet Rake in your local TSC you could be finding a great deal as i did!
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try it out today
