Works very well. Hinged flap is a very good idea!
on January 8, 2016
I like that fact that it has the 2 rollers to avoid scraping or damaging the roof shingles. I had about 14-18 inches of snow buildup on my roof and since the snow was so tall, I couldn't successfully push it and drag it back in one pass but once I got working on it, I was able to remove all snow with a couple of passes. (see photo).
I imagine with 6 to 10 inches of snow this rake probably works like a dream. It's only Achilles heel are the hog rings for the flap in which after first assembly, I closed them with pliers but left them as a half inch triangle. After I lost one after a lot of snow removal and looked at it again, I realized the best thing to do is to cinch them as small as possible (a triangle of about 3/8 of an inch). I think the best and more durable solution is to buy stainless steel split key rings with a size of about 12mm to fasten the hinged door. I'll try that if the hog rings loosen up again.
The poles bend a little with 4 extensions which is understandable but thankfully they don't kink. 3 extensions work much better if you can get away with that length.
