Roof Razor, etc

I have a roof shovel already...it's the 2/3 piece interlocking tube handle with the metal ~cleat~.

Everytime I use it. it's cumbersome, and heavy, and tiresome. Even more than shoveling EOD I think.

Anyhow, I wrote this list down of brands to check out last year and am revisiting it.

For those that have those roof sleds - roof razor, avalanch, snow cutter, etc....let me hear it.

That Avalanche looks pretty cool. I think I recall someone here fabricating the same last year...

I've used the Avalanche. It's a great device.

Another Avalanche user here.

On my second one. First one had wooden handles, second has fiberglass. I've bought and made handle extensions. Great product. I've got 12/12 roofs and that snow will come ripping down on you fast.

They can get beat up though when the snow sets up hard. The frame and axle can bend and the slide can tear, but they still do last. Pretty sure I've been using them for at least 20 if not 22 years.

Thanks, jrom. Great testimonial.

I'll try to be a bit more careful with it. My traditional roof rakes haven't been as durable as I'd hope.
