    I bought it about 2 months ago. I would recommend it. My first vac, so I'm no expert on them. It is big and takes up a lot of space. I struggle to get my wfp gear and vac in the van at the same time. The tools are a bit cheap and look like they are made in someone's garage. They do the job though. If you do buy it make sure the thumb screws are always tight ad I lost one god knows where on a job. Oh and the poles are friggin heavy at length and at an angle.

    Would I buy it? Yes!

    Cheers for that Tuffers, always nice to know what someone else thinks of tools.
    another local guy is going to show me the vac he bought for similar money, wonder if its the same one.

    At this price it would only take approx 10 - 15 jobs to get the cost back which is a big plus

    Yep norm looks like an ets vac to me but just the head is a different colour. Chepo china vac's are not really built for everyday use gutter clearing as found the motors can die very quickly.

    As for the poles they look heavy and will be ball breaking to use but for the money even if the vac lasts a few months could generate loads of dosh if you have the work for it.

    I've got the 4200 watt 110v omnipole guttervac. Been using it for 4/5 years now, and still going strong. One small issue with a break in the wire where it enters into the machine, but half hour & some wire cutters sorted that problem out!

    Not cheap, but has paid for itself many times over.
