VALLEY CITY, Ohio – When it comes to caring for lawns and gardens, homeowners can empty their pockets purchasing multiple tools and accessories to get the job done. Thanks to the Power Rake™, a patented multi-purpose mower blade engineered by Arnold – a leader in the outdoor power equipment (OPE) industry – landscapers, gardeners and DIYers have a fast and convenient solution that dethatches, bags, rakes, scalps, mulches and cuts lawns in a single tool.

"Customers were looking for a way to tackle several outdoor tasks without breaking their banks, so we designed a tool that gave them superior results at an affordable price,” said Bryan Grabowski, product manager for Arnold at MTD Products, Inc. "The Power Rake gives them a versatile product easy for any level DIYer to use without sacrificing quality performance.”Power Rake

Using the Power Rake is simple – just attach the blade to a mower and adjust the height of nylon lines to accomplish multiple chores. With the nylon lines brushing the top of the grass, the blade rakes up leaves, grass clippings and lawn debris. Set the nylon lines at ¼ inch above the soil, and the blade dethatches. Keeping the nylon lines in constant contact with the soil, the blade scalps the lawn in preparation for reseeding.

"Maintaining a yard can be overwhelming and intimidating – we wanted to empower consumers with an uncomplicated tool,” Grabowski said. "With a universal fit to most mowers, the Power Rake gives users no hassle and no guessing.”

The Power Rake has a suggested retail price of $21.99 and is available at a selection of mass retail home improvement, hardware and farm supply stores, as well as online at www.mtdparts.com (part number: 490-100-0056). Replacement nylon lines can also be purchased for $4.99 at these outlets (part number: 490-040-0016).
