I purchased a Sno-Knife half-way through winter and was pleased with it. However, I found it difficult to use from the ground. The pitch of my roof is 4/12 and, after attaching several extensions to get far enough from the house to get the proper angle, I found the Sno-Knife awkward to use. I then used the Sno-Knife (with one extension) from a ladder leaned against the eaves of my one-story house. This worked well for me, but some people may not be comfortable on a ladder in winter. I was very impressed how quickly the Sno-Knife slid snow off my roof (I only used it on fairly wet snow). I also was impressed with how I could remove snow at an angle to the side, so it did not slide onto me (I would guess that Sno-Knife is better at this than other roof-clearing products). Sno-Knife should be easier to use from the ground on steeper roofs, but question its use with two-story houses.

This item works better than the roof rakes I have used but I had difficulty removing snow that had been packed down because it snowed then rained. The plastic "knife" has some curl to it and this caused it to ride up to the surface of the snow instead of cutting under it. I suspect it will be great for powder and maybe even fresh wet snow.

This product was the lowest price of the very few products out there for this kind of task. I was apprehensive about my roof pitch which is 17 degrees or 3'-8" rise for 12' of horizontal. Before I ordered I walked out away from my house until my line of sight was equal to the roof pitch and then measured the distance back to the house. It was 18'. The unit is 20 feet long meaning that I would have to either buy extension poles or stand on a ladder to reach the peak at 14' from the eve. The same would have been true of any similar tool I purchased. I ordered the tool and it arrived on time and in good shape.

The first thing I wanted to examine was the beveled edge to keep it from snagging singles. It was at a good angle for that, but now my concern was for it riding up on top of the snow because of the bevel. It did. Winter is almost over and it was a warm day (42 deg. F) and the snow was well packed down. This means that I can't wait around to get the snow off after a fresh snow. I'll update this review after my next use.

Received my sno-knife today. I have four (4) different types of roof pitches. My house has a 10/12 pitch, worked great. My farmers porch has a 2/12 pitch, always used a ladder to clean this roof, worked great. My outdoor shed has a 9/12 pitch and I found that I had to watch out on this roof not to lift the shingles. The shed attached to the house has a 6/12 pitch, no problem cleaning this roof. The snow on this roof which is on the North side of my Cape has had snow on it for a month and was at least 3 ft. deep, had no problem removing, just had to watch out for the avalanche of snow sliding off the roof.

I have found that attaching a 3/8" diameter plastic clear tubing to the front edge of the sno-knife eliminated any chance of lifting the shingles on my shed roof with the 9/12 pitch. It did not lessen the usefulness of the tool. I also us my roof rake if I want to really get the roof clean down to the shingles.

One of the great advantages is that you can use the same extension poles on either unit. I had only ordered the head for the sno-knife and use the poles from my roof rake. I only have praise for this great tool, and it is not as labor intensive as any of the other roof cleaning tools that are available.

TRY IT!!!! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY

Anyone who has used a conventional roof rake at the end of a 15 foot pole knows what a labor intensive effort that is. To pick it up and drop it into the snow before pulling another swath down is exhausting. The advantage of these flat plate types is they reduce the amount of lifting to a minimum. You can simply slide it up under the snow, joggle it loose, and a little tug toward you should send it down the roof. The other great advantage is the ability to work in an arc to either side of you, thus clearing a much greater area without moving. Anyone leaning out of a dormer window or working from a ladder knows how very important that advantage is to reach certain areas. When the snow gets wetter and heaver the technique experience has shown to be the least labor intensive is to not bite off more than you can chew at one time. Simply tip the plate up on edge and slide it up through the snow while being careful not to catch on any shingles. After reaching the end of the poles reach try to flip it over the snow and stand it up again so you can pull it toward you making another row. If you can't flip it just pull it back in the same track you cut going up, move it over the width of the blade, and push it up in a new track, repeating the process. When you’ve made enough tracks just start slipping the blade under each track, being careful the weight of it doesn't cause the blade to catch an edge. If the drifts are too thick it may be easier to slice each track into thinner slices and work your way down through the thicker areas. One side of my house took all morning to clear from a ladder while forcing the blade under the wind-blown hard pack like a jackhammer. After figuring out the above vertical slicing method the other side of even thicker hard-pack took all of 20 minutes.Read more ›
