I rate it 5 stars because the rake body/teeth are 1/4 thick steel -- VERY STRONG -- and the body is welded to the cap all the way around -- also VERY STRONG. I used this to rake a large pile of fist-sized rocks and when teeth caught on many roots or embedded rocks, the body never had any signs of bending or breaking. Should be, truly, a lifetime (of me) lasting product.
This is the longest lasting rake I have ever purchased. None of my staff or the trusty workers have broken one in over a year.
Great rake. Extra durable.
