    Hi ALL

    I have just been asked to quote for clearing a gutter but i haven't bought any tools yet or a Gutter Vac as i want to make some more money Window Cleaning first!

    Any ideas / suggestions on what i could use please? I also need to know how you guys collect and remove the **** when you do a hand job (as Smurf would call it).

    I am going to buy the Pro-gutter 3 when it comes out next month but i think they need it done sooner!

    Ady

    I have just had a look on google as i did not get chance to go and see the job this afternoon.

    It is quite a small terraced house and i can do the front off a ladder with my drain rods and drop scraper I reckon.

    As for the back, i believe they have a conservatory almost the width of the garden so i will struggle to get to the gutter to clear it by hand!

    Doing the front you will be lucky to get that tool in the guttering I reckon. As for the back unless you can get your ladder up to the side of the consevatory then would be a guttervac job methinks. That is unless you can gain access to both next doors sides to use a pole and gutter tool then might be doable that way.
