    The downside
     
    Before you get too excited, I want you to understand that “faster” and “more fun” does not necessarily mean “easier”.
     
    First of all, notice in the videosroofing remover demonstrations that hundreds of pounds of roof shingles will be getting displaced in a few short minutes of time. Therefore, you’re going to break a sweat. In order to fully appreciate this tear off tool, one must have an aggressive attitude, enjoy ripping stuff apart, and not be afraid to work.
     
    Secondly, Razor Bar uses wedging action to free the roof shingles from the deck. This is different from all the other tear off tools, which use prying action. As a result, this roof stripping tool handles like nothing else you’ve had in your hands (unless you are an experienced spear fighter). Expect a learning curve. The following information is absolutely essential so that you can be successful with a Razor Bar.

     
     
    Although down-stroking is good for shedding the roof debris, the shingles also tend to shed tools, so a "dig" angle is required to stay under the shingles. This puts the sharp tips in contact with the surface, so they tend to bite into the roof deck. Roof shingle remover dig angle
     
    roof shingle tear off tool glide angle Up-stroking and upward side-stroking can free the cutting tips and premit a "glide" condition. This is where the fun starts. When gliding, Razor Bar will ride over the most ornery roof surfaces such as Ice membrane and stubble.
     
     
    Roof shingle stripping tool sweet spot
    Razor Bar's geometry has been fine-tuned to make it easy to start and maintain a glide. Once you get a feel for that sweet spot, you'll start to see the demonstratedroofing tear off tools demonstrated ripping performance and surface control.

    strategy for removing roof shingles
    It can be tricky to both up-stroke and take advantage of gravity at the same time. Taking bites from the top down, the shingles should continually be rolled on top of the undisturbed roofing so that they will shed to the ground.
     
    These are just the bare basics. Razor Bar comes with a myriad of tricks for putting roof shingles on the ground. Further details and demonstration are available on the Tips and tricks page.
     
    You'll also have the opportunity to see how it's made before you buy one.
