Answer: 
No, a two story house is usually 20 feet tall. This only being 17 feet, it would not reach. If it did, I cannot imagine it would remove much snow from your roof

Answer: 
I doubt it, not with the tool as its purchased. Perhaps with an extension to the handle. I have a single story on a hill where one side of the house is higher than the other by about 5 feet. I had to use a ladder to reach the high side and use the tool.

Answer: 
I would suggest a 21 foot, I have a 2 story colonial and it barely does a foot at the end, and I have to stand right under it, so the snow will land on you, otherwise use a ladder, but not very stable...

Answer: 
The product indicates extensions can be added but I haven't added any. I live on hill and one side of my house is higher by about 5 feet. I used a ladder for that one side and that worked for me.

Answer: 
There is a one page assembly instruction sheet which is easy to follow. It doesn't really explain the "clips". The tool comes with 3 clips but I only found one place to put a clip. It's working with the one clip and am assuming the others are spares.

Answer: 
I live in a pine forest and while the tool will knock down some pine needles along with the snow, it's really not made for that. (I use a leaf blower or a garden rake for pine needles).

While it is designed to remove snow from the roof it is possible to use the rake to remove pine needles, but may not work as well as pine needles may be left on the roof.

After looking at some other options that I ordered this rake. There is some assembly required but this only took a few minutes. The tubing is designed not to flex and it works well, the buttons to extend the sections are also large enough to use with gloved hands and never froze up. I use on a ranch house where snow accumulates above the front entry way and another valley that look like they could develop problems due to the amount of snow and potential for ice dams. Only negative is delivery seemed a bit slow and the local Home Depot did not have it in stock. Either way I'm glad to have this item in my arsenal to fight the snow.

I can handle this out to about 12 feet, then it gets a bit unwieldy. We use it on the house roof and on the patio cover. Does just what we need it to do.
