The 14' FG windsurfer mast I was using for my old beat up roof rack seems
to have gotten really heavy as I approach my 70th birthday...

This new rake might be light-duty, but at 4.8 pounds, me likeee..

I checked out the 'reach'.. It's good.. Goes almost all the way to the top.
About 1 foot more and it would be on top of the ridge vent..

After being buried last year, I've decided to try to keep up with the snow this winter.
Meaning that I will use the snow thrower to make a ditch around the house and the garage,
that will allow me to use the snow rake to clean off snow,
before it gets too Best commercial roofer.. letting 3 feet of snow pile up, is a mistake,
no matter how light and fluffy it is.. My goal is to not allow over a foot up there.

Anyways, the locking rings are easy to use and they work fine.
The plastic rake part is pretty heavy duty. And should be easy to replace.
I do not like the bowing of the pole when fully extended..
But I will withhold reviewing this tool, until I get to use it a few times..
For the price, the quality looks pretty good.

The main fitting where the pole fits into the rake, has two pop-up buttons
that lock into two holes in a plastic tube..

The support arms are fastened to the pole with a bolt and locking nut.
The rake end of the support arms have threaded metal inserts embedded in plastic posts. They seem solid..
Thanks for sharing the information of such a nice product. I would like to know from where I can buy it online or not? Thanks
