    “I got the Model 500, put it together and used it yesterday for the first time. All I need to go with the orange plastic slide with Avalanche printed on it is an orange cap with Avalanche on it, then everybody in this northeast area of Austin, MN will know what I am using! Seriously it works great and I would be happy to recommend it to anyone who cares to ask me about it.“

    “What a great invention!!

    Used the Avalanche 500 for the first time this afternoon. What a great invention. I’m ordering two more pole pieces so that I can easily reach all the way to the ridge line. The way the snow slides off I think I could do the whole roof in less than an hour. Thanks for this great tool.“

    “We purchased the Avalanche after hearing Al Malmberg’s endorsement on WCCO radio. My husband couldn’t believe he actually cleared the whole roof in less than half an hour, and from the ground!! We feel the time saved in the first usage more than paid for this new piece of equipment. Thanks for making the job easy!“

    “Roof Snow Problem Solved!
    I am very impressed with your product. I had some 18 inches of snow on the roof, and the weather turned warm, with rain and drizzle to follow, and it was a must to get that snow off now, before the moisture increased the weight of what was up there. I went to my local Ace hardware store and picked up the Avalanche Original. I am female, 5 ft 7, 140 lbs, and knew I could not physically handle a standard roof rake and pull all that heavy snow off. This worked G-R-E-A-T …and it is fun to use, really. I did both the house and garage in record time, easy for a first time user. I had no problems using it… the neighbors were watching… and I’m sure I will be the talk of the neighborhood this week….. and every time I pull out this new snow toy.“

    I love this thing. Works as advertised. I did remove one of the pole sections which made the unit more manageable. After use I roll the tarp section with the assistance of small nosed vice grips which I attached to the rod between the nut and frame. This allows me to roll up the tarp tightly. Then I tie it with two elastic strings for storage.
