FIRE HOOKS BRUSH RAKE WITH 5’ ASHWOOD HANDLE
Fire Hook’s brush rake with its eleven steel blades and the 5-foot handle has traditionally been preferred over the McLeod in the eastern states.
✔ The triangular tines can be honed with a file.
✔ The fire rake is lighter than the McLeod and is better for cutting leaves, mulch, small bushes, and debris from trail corridors.
✔ A firefighter can use this tool to rake burning material back into the area already burned, moving the fire from the fuel ahead of it creating a fire break. This allows the firefighter to stay safely on the 'burned side' while quickly moving the fire away from further fuel.
✔ The burning material is left to burn itself out away from the edge of the fire line, or another firefighter with a fire flapper will smother it if required.
✔ The tool will cut through any undergrowth that may be burning and overturn some soil, further assisting in creating a fire break, smothering the fire, and lowering the temperature of burning materials below their threshold of ignition.
