Magnesium Asphalt Levelutes

Our patented asphalt Levelutes are made of magnesium. This means a rake that is not only lighter, but stronger than aluminum, perfect for paving, landscaping and snow grooming. We use only the finest and most costly materials, forming main components in our own dies from special alloys tested for maximum strength and service. Every part of our levelutes are rust proof and lifetime-free from strength deterioration due to weather, temperature and working service.

Our Asphalt Levelutes eliminates waves. ridges and rock pockets; leaving any surface free of hollows, humps, miniature "swimming pools," and other marks of unevenness. One man can easily fine rake, smooth and level more than 100 TONS of asphalt in one day with a Levelute weighing 5 pounds, Its feather lightness minimizes labor fatigue. Compared to a standard asphalt rake, the LEVELUTE IS THREE TIMES WIDER. . REACHES TWICE AS FAR. . FINISHES DOUBLE THE AREA. .IN HALF THE TIME. . AND WEIGHS ONE-THIRD LESS!

All 3 Models of Levelutes are:

  • Stronger: The clamp design we invented avoids drilling a hole in the tool's handle, eliminating a weak spot at the area of the handle where you need the most strength.
  • Flexible: When torqued to its limit, brackets invented by us will slide slightly, avoiding breakage.
  • Tough: Our unique clamp design, combined with our ultra-strong brackets, make for one tough tool.
  • Built For Use: Our magnesium handles won't turn your hands black, like the aluminum handles of our competitors.


Our NS Model comes with an  1 and 1/4" O.D. handle and sturdy aluminum braces that are clamped to the handle, eliminating any hole in the handle that can weaken it structure.
