Works like you would expect any plastic manure fork to work but the extra basket around the back is fabulous for keeping the bigger loads from sliding off.

This is the best fork I've found for stall and paddock cleaning. However, if you use it as a horse back scratcher , the tines will break! An improvement would be to sell the plastic fork part separtately from the handle, so that when the fork breaks, you don't need to buy both.

It gets up all the fine stuff, and works really well with the pelleted bedding I use. The basket allows you to sift all the clean bedding off and really cuts down on the amount you waste.

Poor quality control
I was excited to try out this new rake and bought it because the reviews were so good. The fact that it was guaranteed made buying it through SmartPak attractive. However, when I received the product, the rake part had to be attached to the pole part with the simple (included) nut and bolt - BUT when the factory attached the plastic cowling to the pole, the holes for the screw on the cowling did NOT line up with the hole in the rake handle, so could not be attached.
I sent for a replacement, which was very quick and hassle free, BUT - when I received the replacement, it was WORSE than the first one!
How can I use a rake that can't be assembled???
I returned it for full credit -- UPS is NOT close to where I live and I cannot keep returning defective products. I can buy this product all ready assembled at tractor supply store and pay as little as $5.00 more - saved the hassle of returning a third one, and the manufacturer has a warranty. would love to have tried it out, but never got the chance.

Finally a fork that I don't have to run back and forth with! The wood handle is really well made and the basket seems sturdy, yet nice and light. I'm really enjoying using this fork and will probably buy again if it continues to be as durable as it's been!
