I felt that the guide wheels may have helped as I tried to level topsoil as I was re-doing my lawn this summer. With out the wheels one corner of my rake would "dig in" when I went over uneven ground. The wheels are supposed to allow the rake to travel evenly over uneven ground. It's like "floating" the rake. Without the guide wheels the rake can dig in too far in some cases.

I never bought the wheels - Maybe the Mrs. will surprise me at Christmas. ....

artic,

Also when leveling ground/gravel it stops the rake from "washboarding" -- an effect that just seems to keep getting worse on its own. Go with the wheels.

Cheers
