The Shingle Eater AOR provides a faster and safer way to complete tear-offs.
Charlton, MA (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
Shingle Eater, Inc., nationally recognized as the manufacturer of the most dependable shingle removal tools on the market, announces the addition of two new patented tools to its line-up of ergonomic shingle stripping tools.
Another Original Ripper, the Shingle Eater AOR™, is a tear-off tool designed to be used while sitting or kneeling as you work top-down on a roof. The Demo Eater™ is a steel-welded hand tool designed to remove building materials such as tile and hardwood floors, cedar or vinyl siding, wallboard and asphalt or shake roofs.
"We are proud to offer 'tools designed by contractors, for contractors™,'" according to Charlene Doherty, President, Shingle Eater, Inc. "We ensure all our products have contractors' best interests in mind. We implement customer feedback and ideas for continuous improvement and we stand behind the quality of all out products."
The Shingle Eater AOR is a perfect example. Using an ergonomically designed handle proposed by an independent contractor with over 12 years of industry experience, the Shingle Eater AOR is intended for use while sitting or kneeling. It features a uniquely bent handle and dual handgrips that offer more leverage, better control on steep pitched roofs, and alleviate stress on your back when stripping asphalt shingles.
"As a contractor myself, I know that increasing the job turn-around makes an enormous difference in your bottom line," according to William Whittaker, designer of the Shingle Eater AOR, and Senior Foreman for J&A Roofing Company, Kingston, NY. "The Shingle Eater AOR provides a faster and safer way to complete tear-offs."
The Demo Eater™ evolved from contractor requests to reinforce the original Shingle Eater tool for additional applications. Patent pending, this tool is manufactured with the same high-quality steel as the original, yet features a reinforced fulcrum and strike plate. Demo Eaters are available in two sizes, The Demo Eater Senior and The Super Demo Junior. The larger sized tool offers - the longest handle on the market for flooring removal, providing maximum force when tearing out sub-floors or removing wallboard. Beveled teeth and the added kick plate make it easy to slide the footplate under building materials for removal in larger pieces, minimizing cleanup and saving time.
All Shingle Eater Tools are manufactured in the United States, complete with a limited manufacturer's warranty. Shingle Eater products are available through Contractor Supply Stores and Distributors throughout North America such as Bradco Supply, Allied Building Products, ABC Supply Stores, and many subsidiaries of Beacon Roofing Supply.
