I recently went to the NSW camping show & saw a stall selling a collapsible / folding rake. Thought it was a great idea but ended up buying everything else but the rake. I am now having trouble finding out where to get one and can't remember the name of the stall that sold them? Any ideas?

Hi Jo Q.
The Cook got ours in K-Mart a couple of years ago but they don't seem to be available there any longer.
It's very handy as the handle telescopes in and the rake folds together. We've attached it under the boot lid of our camper and find it handy for when she wants to clean leaves etc. up while I'm relaxing.

Will keep an eye out in k-mart & see if they turn up there again. Attached under the lid of the camper is a good idea - thanx for that!

The Rake that I got from a show was at a stand that is normally at all the Rural Scenes promotions shows and they have a series of rope snatch winching setups for lifting motors and things and the rakes were just an add on to that stall.
There is every chance they would be at Grimmos show at Coffs Harbour this month at the racecource.

I have seen these rakes at Mitre 10. for around $20
Have had one in the van for yonks, makes it real easy to clean a site when bush camping.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

I bought one of those rakes, on sale at Coles for $7, for yard use, about 5 yrs ago and it's still going strong. Due to being a part-time golfer with a better short game than long, I have used it with the tines closed for scooping up and tossing mangoes (thousands of) into a pile, as well as macadamias (millions of,) each summer since. When we started travelling with the CT, I soon realised that the rake would be good for cleaning up rocks, twigs/branches and natures' litter before we put down the shade-cloth floor at our camping sites and in the mornings for BIG spiders webs between the trees on the way to the loo.
It soon became a permanent fixture in the CT, so I bought another one at Bunnings not long ago, for the yard. You may still be able to buy them at Coles, from time to time.
Sheila.

Fantastic! It's off to Bunnings 1st then Mitre 10. Thank you all for your reply's - clearing the camp-site before putting the camper trailer up is exactly what I need it for. After a recent trip to Bungonia where we seemed to be camping on rocks the size of small boulders, the broom I had in the trailer just didn't cut it!
