Brilliant!!! Just don't try it with 2" of snow on a 50 year old ruff cut cedar shake roof.

I picked up this roof cleaning model over 30 + years ago, been working flawlessly ever since

I can see where the pitch of the roof is a big factor in how well it works I like that first one.

After using a Roof Rake for years - I think this idea is brilliant. At first - I thought it would rip off shingles - till I noticed the side rails. Now that I'm 74 - the old roof rake - I have - has lost appeal. I like this idea and will have to get one. ---Mike---
