Leaf-raking made easy

New from Ames True Temper and just in time for leaf-raking season...the Rake 'n Go.
This was one of the "cool tools" I spotted at the exhibition of new products at the Garden Writers Association convention in Raleigh.
So light you can hang it from a tab on the handle on a hook in your garage, you simply flip it open, rake in the leaves and wheel it where you need it to go. Kick stand and wheel locks keep it securely stationed at the perfect angle for easy filling.
It holds about three 39-gallon leaf bags and costs about $55 and is available at Sam's Club.
It also looks ideal for collecting garden debris during the spring and fall, when clean-up is so daunting.
