Bar, you’ll get long strokes ripping big chunks and rarely touch a shingle with your hand.

rides on irregular surfaces to glide under the roof shingles and wedge
them free. It also grabs and throws the roof shingles, making the tool handy for delivering the debris to the ground.

First of all, notice in the videos
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

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.
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 demonstrated ripping performance and surface control.

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.
