I needed something more aggressive than a tow-behind de-thatcher and less aggressive than a landscape rake. The only other 3-point pine straw rake that I could find would have been about twice as much $$$ when shipping to my house is included. The Field Tuff rake came in a box on the UPS truck. It did have to be assembled, which was a minor PITA, but it's pretty high quality, nice materials, and so far has stood up to the difficult terrain in the wooded area of my property. My only complaint is that it's not quick-hitch compatible, so won't work with my iMatch. The distance between the lift arm brackets is 24.5 inches I think I can cobble something together with some 7/8 steel bent into a U-shape. The other problem is the weight. It's about 55 lbs, so I've added one, and will probably add a second 40 lb weight. It would have been nice if they had included a bracket for hanging suitcase weights.
Overall though...nice rake and very suitable for my tasks at about 1/2 the price.
