About 6 months ago I started looking for an arena rake and after looking at several I came across Riata Rake. I really liked it when I saw it and called Mike last year and reserved one. I held off thru the winter and started looking into buying it but was really nervous because this is a big decision. This is a piece of equipment that has a lot of great design and its built to last. I really wanted to look at what I was buying and tried hard to do that but would have had to drive to do that, so I did some research and got a phone number to a guy that actually owns two of them and after speaking to him I was sold . I ordered the Riata Rake when I hung up the phone. Mike has been great to deal with and I have absolutely no regrets. I used it for the first time yesterday and had been in the dirt business before this thing is amazing!!!! Thanks Mike!!! If you are looking for an arena rake this one is definitely one to consider !!!
