I prefer to spend more money up front for a good tool than to waste money buying the same thing multiple times. That's why I buy WOLF-Garten tools; they are fantastic. They seem expensive when you compare them to more bulk store tools, but they are quality.
I looked at actual rakes like this at a local reputable home store and noticed that half the heads were broken at the welds. I didn't feel comfortable spending $40-50 on a rake that could break on me. Then I saw this one when I bought the tree saw, squeegee, and mop head.
This particular rake head has already earned its keep raking in over 20 yards of soil and mulch (30+ tons), bashing out big clumps, raking up mud, it will naturally pull weeds right out of the yard and leave the grass, intact. I honestly had no idea a rake like this could be this good - it's now my go to tool. And with the flat side on the back it's perfect for smoothing out garden beds.
I highly recommend this rake head and...
This rake is very thoughtfully designed, like virtually all W-G products. But please note, it is a little less wide than it looks in the pictures, about 13 inches, which is not a problem for me, but could be for some gardeners looking for a really wide rake. That said, the design and build are German engineering at its best and simplest. First, the shape: The tines are lightly bowed at the perfect angle to dig in lightly or deeply as you wish by varying the angle slightly. Second, the build: solid as a rock, with sharpened times that come to just the right point to lift and dig with minimal effort. The shiny surface of the the metal lets the dirt drop off easily, with minimal sticking. This snaps on easily to the interlock handles, which you will need to buy unless you have one already. This solid, sturdy rake should last forever in normal (or heavy) use.
Someone else pointed out that this rake is smaller than the regular rake. I checked, and yes, it has two fewer tines than my True Value rake. However, that allows me to get into smaller spaces, and the curve of the tines is more pronounced, allowing me to pull more "stuff." I'm using this rake to handle wet hay and horse manure (very heavy stuff), and it's doing a terrific job. It has a permanent home in my barn, and I'm really glad I bought it. I'll be looking at more WOLF-Garten products as a result.
