Rakes and Spazzles FAQs


What is a spazzle?

A spazzle is a tool used for levelling out loose materials. It is most typically used on tarmac, concrete, soil and gravel. A spazzle features a long handle connected to flat blades and often reinforced with a bracket.

What are rakes?

Rakes are tools commonly used in gardening, agriculture and landscaping. Rakes are also used in spreading asphalt & concrete. They have a long handle with a crosspiece or head at one end with a series of prongs or teeth. For gardening work, rakes will normally be more flexible, but tarmac rakes are much sturdier and will be made of steel.

What are the different types of rakes?

There are many different types of rakes, and here at Lapwing, we sell affordable rakes with round or square teeth, lawn rakes, tarmac rakes, landscaping rakes and asphalt rakes.

What is a spazzle used for?

A spazzle is used for transferring, levelling and smoothing out newly poured concrete or other loose materials. By using a spazzle, workers can efficiently distribute concrete across a large area, ensuring an even spread before further levelling and finishes are made. They are essential tools for achieving a uniform look and durability of a surface.

Is raking good for my lawn?

Raking your lawn is beneficial, as it can help remove layers of dead grass (thatch), roots and debris. Raking also helps the thatch from getting too thick, which can block air, water and nutrients from getting to the roots and soil. Routine leaf raking also aids in the removal of fallen leaves, which, if allowed to build up, can smother the grass and serve as a habitat for pests and diseases.

How is a tarmac rake different from a normal rake?

There are several differences between a tarmac rake and a normal one, including:
• Tarmac rakes feature a wide row of flat teeth specifically designed to spread and level hot asphalt or tarmac, whereas a normal rake will feature narrower teeth that are much more flexible.
• Tarmac rakes are made from durable materials such as steel. Garden rakes are typically lighter and designed for less strenuous tasks.
• The handle of a tarmac rake is longer – usually around 60” in length – than the handles of normal rakes.
• Tarmac rakes are used for laying and spreading asphalt and tarmac in construction applications, whereas normal rakes are used for garden maintenance such as clearing leaves and thatch.
