The Backslope Tools Bert is our rendition of the much-loved Lamberton Rake. With a wider head compared to a McLeod, the Bert is a wonderful finishing and shaping tool that allows for greater efficiency.  A trail builder favorite that has since been discontinued, we've brought it back with the same innovations offered on the Clyde.

Stay organized with wider spacing in-between tines for easy stacking of multiple tools. And, never worry about your tools disappearing from your truck or a remote job site with eyelets compatible with a standard cable lock.

  • Head Material: Heat Treated Steel
  • Head Thickness: .156"
  • Head Width: 15"

Bert Will Turn You Into an Animal

This tool makes me into a trail building machine. With the sort of forest floor I'm working in out back it just hacks out trails and gets them to an initial level of smoothness in record time.

Love it, efficient way to smooth out / rake MTB trails. It’s not a compacting tool, but rather a great speciality tool to have in your trail building arsenal.

Big Bert!

The guys are really liking the Bert. We were looking for a wider tool to act similar to the Mclead. Although this tool has a few trade offs for being wider, it’s a great tool for finishing trail. We found in rocky terrain , it’s a great second pass tool to sift some of the finer rocks out before the finishing rake comes though. All in all, great tool, well made , and ships from folks that make a living building trail like us! Great product, get you a couple!

Great trail rake

I have only used it to smooth 1/4 mi of trail so far, as there is snow on the ground, but it does what I need. Wide enough to pull rocks and pebbles without digging in. You will still need a McLeod or Rogue Hoe to compact though.
