The Macleod is a tool that is almost specific to only trail building. Its sturdy rake-like design allows it to move soil, rocks and debris. It has a flat surface that can be used to pack down the trail. It can be hard to find this tool in department stores, but you can find them easily online by searching the internet. This tool is also used by fire-fighters when doing controlled burns, and to help control wild-fires. Another name for the Macleod is a

Mountain Rake. We actually don't use this tool as much as you'd think we would. Because we typically have to hike in to our locations where we work, we are limited to the number of supplies we can carry. A Pulaski is one of the tools that we tend to choose over others because of it's versatility and strength.
