Petmate Clean Response Waste Management System Swivel Bin & Rake
Best poo pick up too I have ever owned!!!!!!
First, this is used to clean up after a 75lb, 7 month old German Shepherd who eats A LOT, and poos A LOT. I also am a combat wounded disabled veteran, and have a terrible back, left arm, and bad knees. I am preceding this review with my situation, to show how great this product is to pick up after a big dog and someone who has disabilities.
Everything in the design of this product was taken into consideration. Ease of securing bags to the pan works wonderful, they are held flat to the ground so you can't miss get the poo into the bag. Durable plastic too, this is not a flimsy product. The rake "fingers" have a great flexibility so even if you have to scoop up a "mud pie" you can just flick it into the back leaving less on the ground than if you tried to pick it up with a doggie bag. Also, having a dog that poops 5 times a day, using those doggie bags really adds up. I figured it out, that it costs me 15-20 cents per bag/poo to pick it up, so it costs me 7 dollars a week just in doggie bags, and the lack of strain on my back and knees is priceless. This will pay for itself in less than 3 weeks. The last big plus is there is NO metal at all used, so I can rinse it off very easily and leave it tucked away in the backyard and don't have to worry if it gets wet and having rusted springs, joints, which I have had issues with pooer scoopers in the past. I would recommend this to anyone who has to clean up after a dog.

Finally an AMAZING waste manager!!!
This is an incredible product! It is very durable and has hooks that will easily hold a grocery bag (I use two to guarantee I don't have anything sneak through a hole in the plastic) for hands-free scooping! I have used MANY products that are on the market. Most have a flimsy rake or don't have hooks to hold a bag inside so you have to wash it with each use. This eliminates all those problems. It is PERFECT and I see it lasting for the duration of our senior dog and new puppies lives. LOVE IT!

Well designed. Quality construction.
By far the best designed scoop I've seen on the market. Very sturdy construction. The hooks for the plastic bags are genius. Easy to clean. Thanks for a great product!

easy to use
This is the best pet clean up product I have used. I have used several types, this one the best. The product is built very good. Big dogs or small dogs works great for both sizes.

Pet waste clean up made easy!
This is a must-have for every dog owner! I used to bend down & use a small gardening shovel to pick up after my dog, those days are gone! With the Petmate clean system, I can pick up after my dog without getting my hands dirty, it sweeps up easily with the rake and goes right into the swivel bin that is lined with a regular size grocery bag that you get from the store. It's easy to take the bag out, tie it off & toss it with the trash. Then just put a new bag back on for next time. Since it's plastic, it won't rust when left outside like some other metal rakes & bins.

Great product at a very reasonable price
I found this to be one of the easiest waste management systems to use. I love the fact that I can use regular grocery bags that fit nicely on the basket. I recommended it to several of my friends and will be ordering several more as gifts for them.

Sturdy rake and bin
Just had this rake and bin set a few week, so far I really like it. It is the third one I have bought and it is the easiest to use.. It is nice heavy plastic, so I can leave it outside. I love the big bin and using grocery bags in it. I have 2 dogs and clean up after them once a week. I clean the whole yard without having to dump the bin.

Works Great, Wife even uses it.
Now on second unit. First lasted through two summers, being exposed to constant SoCal sun. Very easy to use and change plastic bags for disposal. Only current problem on the horizon is how much longer will grocery/HomeDepot plastic bags be available. My guess is product will outlast availability of plastic bags in Ca.
