In 1977, Avalanche invented the gravity-dependent Avalanche Snow Roof Rake. Knowing it’s necessary to prevent structural weight problems and ice dams, the Minnesota based company created a snow removal tool that gets the job done. The innovative design saves users from both snow removal strain and damages to roof materials like asphalt shingles, solar roofs, and metal roofs. Avalanche’s continued innovation created the Avalanche Snow Rake that users know and trust today.
With innovative features, the snow roof rake allows roof snow to slide off the roof instead of being pulled off the roof. Avalanche invented a snow slide, which is what creates the sliding and strain-free action. A cutting head with wheels elevates the head enough to protect shingle roofs while removing snow down to the shingle, preventing ice dams. The innovative features and lightweight fiberglass handle allow the snow rake to remove up to a ton of snow per minute. Also, no tools needed for assembly. Simply snap the pieces together and quickly get to removing snow.
