Can you use a Roof Razor on a metal roof, a tile roof or a roof with architectural shingles?
Yes, by adding the 4 inch or 6 inch wheels to your order. If you have a standing seam metal roof and the seam is not higher than 1 inch, the larger diameter wheels are not needed. The Roof Razor comes with 2 inch diameter wheels already installed. Remember, the clearance obtained by any wheel is half the diameter. Therefore, the already installed 2 inch diameter wheels will clear a 1 inch obstruction.

What is the "Pole Angle Kit" used for?
The Pole Angle Kit consists of two short sections of pole that have an angle in them. It is usually used when there is not enough distance to back away from the edge of the roof to use the Roof Razor. An adjacent building is usually the cause of this. The Pole Angle Kit is also useful when the land slopes steeply downward away from the building being worked on.
What is the "Drift Cutter Kit" used for?
Best used in deep snow over 12 inches, the Drift Cutter is an aluminum bar that extends straight up from the center area of the tool head. As the head cuts and removes snow down the snow slide, the Drift Cutter puts a slice into the snow above the tool head causing the snow to collapse onto the snow slide and go off the roof. This action will allow the removal of very deep snow with just one pass.
