shingles being ripped of roofs


Delivery speed:
I ship USPS Priority mail, 2-3 buisness days. I generally deliver orders received by 4:00pm eastern in time for that day's truck. Further expedition is not viable because I work a day job.

Hand vs Power rippers:
With its light weight and debris handling abilities, Razor Bar is the one to have when tearing off most single layer shingles. Air Ripper is a bit of a luxury when ripping most single layered roofs, but worth more and more as tear off conditions get tougher.

You are welcome to see the tools being made by visiting the shop and to check out my warranty.

The Air Ripper:

Air Ripper is a sweet tool to have if you're stuck ripping tough layers. It increases productivity by hundreds of percent when in it's element, and takes the suck right out of those miserable multi-layered roof rips. Add Harbor Freight's prices shaving a grand off the cost, and it becomes even more appealing.

See the full details on the Air Ripper page.

Air System Requirements

One Air Ripper requires an air system of not less than five (5) horsepower (10cfm @ 90psi). The gasoline 5 to 6 horse wheelbarrow style compressor and a 100 feet of 1/4" minimum ID hose do a nice job pushing one of these tools. Further details and results from the field here.

Air Ripper Option 1, Let me fix it.

I take a 62687roofing remover pneumatic handle power handle from Harbor Freight and adjust it 1) to ensure the ripping head fits, and 2) to trim snagging protrusions. It is then bench tested before going in the box. See the work done here.
