Does the Roof Razor® Roof Rake work on a shallow pitch roof?
Yes, it does.
Does the Roof Razor® Roof Rake work around dormers and angles?
Yes, it does.
Does the Roof Razor® Roof Rake go over electrical roof heater tapes?
Yes, the wheels roll over electrical tapes, leaving them fastened as they were.
Are there any problems with vent pipes?
No. No snow collects on a vent pipe, so you simply go to the left, go to the right, and go around without having to remove the Roof Razor® Roof Rake from the roof. The same is true of chimneys.
Can you use a Roof Razor® Roof Rake on a metal roof, a tile roof, or a roof with architectural shingles?
Yes, by adding a metal roof kit to your order.
What's the difference between the Titan and the Dynamo models?
The Titan is best for very large roofs, especially metal roofs. It will move massive amounts of snow quickly. The Dynamo is best for cutting through heavier snow accumulations (12 inches or more) because of a smaller cross section.
Here you can see a side-by-side comparison of the Titan on the left and the Dynamo on the right. The Titan razor head is constructed of 3/16" aluminum flat stock and is 36" wide and 6" high, while the Dynamo razor head is constructed of 3/16" aluminum flat stock and is 24" wide and 6" high. The Dynamo is 30% lighter than the Titan. It's easier to get up onto the roof, to work sideways, to get into dormer areas and around standpipes and chimneys.
Does the Roof Razor® Roof Rake's weight present any problems?
No. While there are lighter-weight roof rakes, none remove snow like the Roof Razor® Roof Rake does. Where there have been concerns, it has been that the product was too light weight to do the job. But see how our product performed despite these concerns at the 2002 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Is it easy to add poles?
Yes, as you can see in the video below.
Is the Roof Razor® Roof Rake slide plastic?
No. The slide is specially treated cloth that is slippery to snow yet stays flexible in the cold.
How long will the slide last?
It depends. Sharp edges will cause cuts, for example. But used properly, the slide should last for several years.
Does deep snow on a roof cause problems?
No. The Roof Razor® Roof Rake easily removes snow two and three feet deep. But don't take our word for it. See what our customers have said.
What's the maximum roof height the Roof Razor® Roof Rake can handle?
The lowest edge of the roof should not be more than 18 feet from the ground. Beyond that height, the angles get too complicated. Click here for pictures of buildings with roofs that are too high.
What's the difference between the MinnSNOWta Roof Razor® Roof Rake and less expensive products?
What is Dimensional Weight?
ALL packages shipped via FedEx are subject to dimensional weight, meaning that, instead of charging by how much a package weighs, they charge using a formula based on the size of the package.
Here's an example. Suppose you have a box that measures 24” x 24” x 20” First, you calculate the volume by multiplying the dimensions together, In this example, the box has a volume of 11,520 cubic inches. To determine the dimensional weight, you divide the volume by 166. In this example, then, the dimensional weight is 11,520 / 166 or 69.4 lbs. FedEx always rounds up to the nearest pound, so you would be billed for shipping this box at a minimum of 70 lbs. However, if the box and its contents weighs more than the dimensional weight (in this case, more than 70 lbs), FedEx would bill for the actual weight.
