    How does the scraper attach to the pole? I couldn't see that part in the pictures.
    From this photo the pole doesn't look like it has any special features for attaching the scraper. I'm thinking I could just replace the pole with a standard extendable pole from the hardware store if it becomes an issue. What do you think?

    just my opinion for those whom may be CAUTIOUS of using a product such as the SNOW JOE or SNOWBRUM just take and wrap a microfiber towel around blue foam and go to work, I too own and use a SNOW JOE (WITHOUT ISSUE FOR PAST TWO YEARS NOW)

    Great question! Let's find out!!

    On the left is the SnowJoe pole, on the right my painters extension pole from Lowes:



    And it fits!



    Whoa! 8ft of SnowJoe!



    Plus the foam head still clips on the side for easy storage:



    Excellent solution! Thanks for posing the question, BlueBeast14GT

    I didn't even think about this, nice!

    That's great that the threading matches! They looked pretty different in that first picture, had me worried haha.


    But, I think I was unclear about what I was trying to do...

    I was actually wondering if we could take that scraper off and put it on the replacement pole as well. That way it's still all Snow Joe, broom + scraper, we just replaced the defective pole.
    It looks like there's a handle on the end of your painting pole, so I don't know if it even has a hole at the end. If it does, could you try snapping the scraper into the painting pole?

    You're very welcome.

    Regarding the scraper, yes you probably could force the original scraper end onto the new pole. But as you noticed, my painters pole has a handle on the end so an exact fit test isn't possible. Sorry!

    Honestly, I prefer using a small handheld scraper over the SnowJoe's scraper end. IMHO, smaller scrapers are just easier to use vs maneuvering around a scraper located at the far end of a long pole.

    Additionally, I'll pretreat heavy ice build up with Prestone de icer before I start scraping away ice, doing so makes the process a whole lot easier.

    That's cool, I'll just have to try it myself

    I agree about the small scraper, and I plan on getting this combo. But in heavier snow, it will be harder to reach the middle of the windshield with that thing without leaning into the snow, hence the appeal of the long scraper. But thanks a lot for all the help man! I can't wait to try this thing.

    Re: Snow Joe Telescoping Snow Broom In Action!

    I got a SnowJoe for Christmas and I love it. Makes clearing the truck quick and much easier than my old snow brush. I had the same problem with the pole getting locked in place. I found that if when I extended the pole, and then pushed it in an inch or so, I could tighten the pole in place without it locking up on me. Next year I'll pick up another one for my wife's car.

    I'm sure a lot of it is how the product is used. I see a lot of damage from the stiff plastic bristle snow brushes every spring.

    Anything has to be better than a regular broom, though!



    Or even using a *gasp* shovel!


    I've seen all of these this winter. My neighbor is even using his swiffer mop to clear his car off.
