Backslope Tools Bert


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.


  • Ideal for moving trail debris, shaping, raking
  • Handle: Fiberglass
  • Head Material: Heat Treated Steel
  • Head Thickness: 5mm
  • Head Width: 16"
  • Head Height: 6"
  • Stackable for easy transport and organization
  • Eyelets compatible with most locks to secure the tool in your vehicle or the field

Sturdy, heavy duty, easy to use

The Bert rounded out my quiver of trail building tools. I was hesitant to spend so much on trail specific tools, but they make you much more productive than using your regular trail building tools, and a lot if standard landscaping tools won't take the use/abuse. I'm in New England in the woods and use a council fire rake for removing duff, a rogue hoerake for cutting down to the subsoil, and the Bert for shaping, dirt moving, finishing and there is nice overlap between the tools, and each is less effort and faster than regular tools. The Bert is really heavy duty and the handle is the sturdiest fiberglass handle I've seen. I opted for this over a travis or terracotta, because this has a better rake and dirt mover, and you won't use the pick/mattock sides of those other tools much.

They are fantastic

These are great tools. They are strong but also feel like they’re going to be very portable.

Great for pulling duff and some tread shaping.

For the right soil type, Bert is great. Good for pulling pine/fir duff and some fine tuning. We pair it with a Travis and Pick Mattock. (Along with steel rake and leaf rake for final finish work. Get the longer handle! 48” was too short for most of our builders.
