1. You have to lift it over the edge and onto the roof, but no higher. You do not have to raise it over the level of the snow at all, much less on each pass.
2. You are not pulling the weight of the snow with each bite; you are simply sliding the device under the snow and letting gravity do the rest. It has to be seen to be believed.
3. The snow slides on a slippery length of fabric, not on the high friction roof shingles.
Maneuvering the roof razor sideways is not easy, but I figured out how to angle the razor into the upper end of new snow and then angle my way around until I had the poles at right angles to the eves. This is much easier to do than to describe, and you will figure it out for yourself almost immediately.
I cannot yet give the roof razor a 5-star rating because I don't know how long the slide will last before abrading to the point of needing replacement, and I don't how well it works on melted and refrozen snow. A previous reviewer indicated that it works just fine on crusty snow; if so, the roof razor is not just superior to a conventional roof rake, but it is vastly superior. I will add to this review after my first experience with crusty and icy snow. But I can confidently say that for dry snow, this item is worth every penny.
As I said above, do buy it before you need it. I'm in Massachusetts and typically we get a break between snow storms so the snow melts away. I probably only need a product like this every three years or more. Although now that I have it, I'm sure it will get more use. This year we got several storms in succession and no chance for melting in between. Right before February vacation to boot. I knew this was going to be a problem. So I last week I ordered this and then spent about 2 hours on a ladder with a home-made roof rake (not the razor type like this one). It was grueling work, I did a lousy job, and I risked gouging my roof. Despite my efforts I still got a little bit of water in the house from the ice dam. I probably would have gotten more.
So now I'm back from vacation and it's 45 degrees outside. There was still about 6 inches of wet, heavy snow on the roof in a non-problem area. So I gave this thing a try. It's awesome. In minutes I had snow flying off the roof. There is no comparison to the rake-style devices. I can't think of a type of snow where the razor-type won't beat a rake-type.
Of all the razor-type products I've seen, this one has the longest pole sections at 6 feet and the longest standard length at 24 feet. I just ordered more poles and an angle kit straight from Minnsnowta since my yard slopes away. I could probably make use of 50 feet of reach. I took some comments about the weight and poor quality of a competing product to heart when choosing this one. I am happy with the quality and weight of this one.Read more ›

I only had to use this once so far this winter, but it is a workout using it. I am well built and was getting tired using it. It is very hard to move around if its all connected. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Gerry
Works great - just like the video. I use it just over my garage which is prone to ice damming. Made a real problem into a 10 minute job. Read morePublished 2 months ago by JimH
At this time it is hard to fully rate this - thus the four stars. It's very unusual for my area but we haven't had much accumulating snow. Read morePublished 2 months ago by G. Brewer
Great concept and high quality, but really heavy, and heavier than it needs to be. Some smart engineering could make it strong enough and much lighter. Read morePublished 2 months ago by C. Sullivan

Arrived on time and works really well; fun to use, actually. My only complaint is that it's very heavy to lift to a high roof. Read morePublished 3 months ago by mary malloy
This was the greatest winter purchase ever ! My hubby was able to get about 2 feet of snow off the back side of the roof in about an hour! The front about the same time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Elizabeth T. Fracchia
