Robertson, Rich G.; Zavala, Mark . 2004. Water Rakes. 0451 1306P. San Dimas, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, San Dimas Technology and Development Center. 6 p.
The San Dimas Technology and Development Center (SDTDC) was asked to fieldtest two water rakes. A water rake is a tool for firefighters to use during mopup. Field acceptance of the tool depends heavily on such factors as location, the type of vegetation, terrain, personal preference, and tooluse training. The water on/off efficiency was greatly improved when using the replacement ball valve from the modification kit. The rake-to-hose attachment is accomplished more quickly and with greater ease when using the swivel attachment from the kit.
