SHW Rakes, Forks, Cultivators
With 22 round spring-steel tines, this leaf rake is the most durable we’ve found. Nice and stiff too.
The design is such that by holding the handle at a 45 degree handle to the ground, the tips of the tines lay flat on the ground and it makes a perfect “grass comb” when pulled through the grass, collecting debris in the ‘basket’ formed by the cross-supports. Excellent for picking up twigs; popular with tree-trimming companies. Also a very good rake for moving soil, due to the density of the tines. All steel head. 2 sizes.
Here is a good stout garden rake; much better than hardware store quality. Flat top allows you to flip it over for leveling; handle is easily replaceable if needed. Color may vary.
This light-weight rake has the neat feature of having an adjustable head angle —adjusts in seconds, by loosening two nuts. This allows the user to select the “perfect” angle depending on their height.
The curved tines have rounded tips, to resist digging into the ground while raking hay. Makes a GREAT seedbed rake as well…the curved tines are great for teasing plant material out of seedbeds without digging in too much, and the rake “top” is flat, so when flipped over, it does a great job of final leveling. A popular trick with these is to stick short pieces of reinforced fuel line tubing (available from any auto parts store) over some of the tines (at your choice of spacing) to drag down the bed and mark out rows. Available with super-light-weight aluminum handle or wood handle.
Wood Handle (54886-W) $56.00 Aluminum Handle (54886) $65.00
This lightweight rake will make short work of leveling your worked seedbed. Sixteen straight 3” long tines are spaced 1.5” apart and the backside is flat to do the final leveling. A popular trick with these (and the debris rakes) is to stick short pieces of reinforced fuel line tubing (available from any auto parts store) over some of the tines (at your choice of spacing) to drag down the bed and mark out rows.

My Grandma had an old tool like this that she did virtually all her gardening with. Unlike the cheap knockoffs in the hardware stores today, this one is virtually unbendable forged steel with a replaceable handle in a tapered socket.
The long, curved, forged tines of this tool were designed to actually dig tubers, but it can be used as a deep cultivator as well. Now available with Round or Flat tines, with easily replaceable handles.

The German SHW catalog calls this a “Dunghacke”…well, if you can’t figure it out, it means Manure Hoe. With 3 forged steel 7”-long tines, it will rip up packed manure like nobody’s business, and makes a great deep-cultivator too. Replaceable ash handle.
MSRP: $49; $40.00
When loosening soil, “tined” tools offer great soil penetration with less effort than “bladed” tools, and are LOTS more friendly to Earthworms! This forged-steel tined hoe utilizes the “Eye” hoe design, which SHW augments with an ovalized handle for comfort and a reinforced gusset on the rear of the handle for extra strength. LONG tines for deep penetration. Can be used to harvest root crops, too…this is like a digging fork you can swing!
