Tools designed for Contractors, By Contractors™

6126:

The Original Shingle Eater offers the best ergonomic design on the market, saving your back, time, and energy. Our rugged tools are designed to handle the demands of your asphalt roofing tear off projects. At roughly 7.4 lbs, this tool is lightweight. The 10″ wide footplate allows you to snag 2 nails with each swipe, enabling a more efficient tear off. Regardless of your position (stand,sit, kneel), the 55″ handle accommodates most conventional roof stripping jobs, and is the most widely accepted as the industry standard. Shorter handles are typically recommended for shorter individuals and low slope roofs.

6128 STEEP SLOPE

If you’re working on a small garage, a steep peak, or difficult areas near the ridge or edge or between peaks, the smaller 7″ footplate is often easier to manipulate. This tool also works well for removing gutters and downspouts. Still has the beveled teeth and corrugations on the footplate, but the shorter handle and longer, narrower foot are more easily used for specialty tear-offs.

6130D

This version most closely resembles the 6127 tool, a better length for roofers under 6 feet.
The entire D handle is made of steel, easy for gripping, and adds only about 1/2 lb to the overall weight of the tool. It is well-balanced and will slide easily under shingles. Smooth finish, no sharp angles, and comfortable.
We worked for over 2 years to get the design right on the D Handle, and so far, roofers have been impressed with our workmanship. Contractors who have used this tool said it was comfortable to use, and they could get better leverage with their body weight with the D Handle.
“I was skeptical at first because I’ve been using the traditional Shingle Eater for over 20 years, but I loved this new tool. It was more accurate. I felt like I had more control over where I was targeting the tear-off. And no blisters, because it is a shovel handle.”- John (approx 5′ 8″) Ipswich, Ma

8126

Our 8126 Large Demo Eater was recently developed to fill the gap for more serious roofing projects, as well as interior demolition. The 55″ angled handle and 10″ footplate make it most similar to our best-selling Shingle Eater 6126. What sets this tool apart is the footplate welded at a 90 degree angle which provides a striking/kicking surface, and footplate reinforced with welded gussets for additional prying power.
Because of our product improvements, many roofers and GCs are considering this model the “new and improved” Shingle Eater. This multipurpose tool is perfect for remodeling, refurbishing projects. It does weigh close to 8 lbs. due to the additional steel and welds, with the weight balanced at the footplate; instead of lifting, you’ll slide the foot. Excellent prying leverage from the ergonomic handle. Great if you hit multiple layers of shingles, a rotten roof deck, or other surprises during your interior remodeling projects.

• Tallest multi-purpose demo tool on the market
