Great rake - I wouldn't use any other. Light enough you can rake pinestraw from a whole acre and your shoulders won't be tired; yet strong enough to get it all in one pass. Wood handle is varnished, and just taking a guess here: hickory? Tines are painted thick, so you don't have to worry about it rusting on you either. Easy assembly, just need an adjustable wrench to tighten one nut to attach the handle to the head.
