    Hey everyone!

    Im new to plowsite, so let me introduce myself. Im Matt, 19, attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and have started my own lawn/landscaping service in Milwaukee. During the summer of the senior year of high school, I caught the attention of a local lawn service! He is helping me grow in the lawn/landscaping field and I am extremely grateful. In the winter time, I solely focus on residential snow removal with my Toro Front Runner GMT 200 tractor with a 48' two stage blower and my fleet of toro single & two stages.

    As I have been doing this for a few years, I have acquired a few accounts that are a little more, "high maintenance". A few of the accounts like to have their roofs raked once or twice a snow season.

    As I am planning on purchasing a new roof rake, I was wondering whether or not any of you have used a poly roof rake and whether they are comparable to the aluminum roof rakes?

    I have been using Yoho snow shovels and have loved them thus far. They offer a poly roof rake and a aluminum one as well. ANY input is appreciated!

    I have a poly one. Used a few times on my property has 3 6-8' aluminum handles. Never broke seems ok. I don't use it commercially.
