How to choose a rake
Tool tool strife. Each user has their own model. But there are general rules, of course. How to choose a rake, Komsomolskaya Pravda told experienced gardener Vasily Grishin.
Aerator helps to enrich the soil with oxygen
The working part of the rake is made of metal, which is sometimes very heavy, as well as plastic. The cheapest metal rakes, as a rule, are not very reliable. The teeth there, it happens, bend. Work becomes not very convenient. Quality steel rakes are more expensive, but better. Yes, they are not the lightest, but very durable. In addition, due to the handle, there are lightweight options. Lightweight and relatively comfortable hardened aluminum rakes are not uncommon these days. There is also a working part made of plastic. This is also a plus for lightness. The plastic is hard, so these tools do the job. However, if this model is expensive. The cheap plastic is not always good. Also, do not use plastic to break up clods and level heavy ground.
Select a few. Straight rakes are considered the most versatile. They are suitable for cleaning fallen leaves and debris, as well as loosening the beds, tilling the soil, breaking up clods, extracting unnecessary roots from the ground.
A rake with twisted teeth is better at handling clods of dense earth. They are easier to cut the soil than to prepare it for planting.
Fan rakes are not recommended for tillage. They look like a broom and an unfolded fan. With them, due to the curved teeth, it is convenient to rake out the leaves, remove small debris, comb the lawn before mowing, thin it out. In general, for cleaning the territory you need to use soft equipment, possibly made of plastic, so as not to injure the shoots and grass.
I will add that for harvesting hay and dry mowed grass it is better to use a rake with short teeth. The handle in this case should be made of wood, as it is lighter.
There are also rake-transformers. There are several nozzles at once that are suitable for a particular type of work. They are more expensive, but much more convenient.
Working part size
If you work in narrow, hard-to-reach corners, then you do not need a large working part. Take small ones — 10-20 cm. Medium size — 30-50 cm — universal. It is suitable for most standard sites and a lot of country work. Large rakes — 50-70 cm — are suitable for large-scale areas.
Their shape and location are of great importance. For lawn care, 10 teeth are enough, for more jewelry work with flowers — 4 teeth. It is better to remove garbage and hay with teeth that are located close to each other.
As for the shape, the straight tines are effective against debris and grass. Twisted well suited for loosening the earth. Sickle-shaped are used for soil aeration.
The presence of nozzles, rippers, something else — will never be superfluous. An important function is the adjustment of the width of the working part and the height of the handle. If several people will use the rake, this is simply necessary. Just pay attention to the mounting mechanism — it must be reliable. Especially when it comes to rakes-transformers.
— In general, a rake is a tool that is definitely indispensable. Take high-quality models, in principle, they all do not cost sky-high money. And consult with the sellers before buying, perhaps they will tell you what is needed for your site, ”concluded Vasily.
Without shovels of different types it is difficult to imagine the life of summer residents
