    Hi, looking for some advise i have around a 1200 quid to spend on a gutter cleaning setup, less would be better
    whats do you guys recommend as the best 3000w setup I can buy.
    I like to buy once, and not buy cheap and i dont like buying twice.
    mainly for domestic use but a vac setup for domestic and commercial would be a better option. one that will not block would be nice, is that an option for new 2015 vac?.
    I have short listed these so far any l9inks or PM any other options would be great ,but I am at the point where Im needing some pro advise, I hate wasting money on s***

    thanks in advance.

    I read the forum that the karcher is a real monster sucker, but is it the right investment ?

    Thanks for the help guys, Neil yes I was looking at the Karcher vac on thurgo looks as cheap as it comes
    is it worth going for?
    I was reading a post on here someone says it a monstor sucking vac and easy up to the job and more power compered to some of the more expensive three motor 3000w vacs
    Any links or PMS for tools/hoses and the gardner poles I would need to complete a home build setup strugling to find what I would need, all for saving a few quid?
    thanks again for the help so far.

    less than 200 quid for a setup that sounds cheap what you using?

    With regards to poles get the gardiner ones. Available from Grippatank. I don't think there is anyone else who has as much experience when it comes to carbon poles as Gardiner except maybe Ionics but they don't make gutter poles. I have bought other carbon poles before for nearly the same money and there is no comparison....

    I have a numatic 2400w vac and it's great, parts easily available.

    Thanks rascal for the input, got me thinking hard,wondering if i am beginning to take this vac setup a bit to serious and going OTT for the jobs I intend on doing
    only intend doing a few bungalows and two story houses on a part time basis for now if i did five a week I would be well happy.
    maybe I could save a good few hundred quid
    and get away with with the New Omnipole pro junior compact vac/blower for a starter kit, with alloy poles, and upgrade if I wanted to get serious not sure I would look like a pro tuning up with a Henry size vac setup.
    or would this vac setup be false economy I struggle to see how a 1400w would be up to the job,
    but with a small 20 ltr tank and not 60/80 may be it would be fine.
    saying that.
    just had a look a few videos, and it does look very wimpy compared to a bigger vac system, might be OK for dry Autumn leaves but big wet sods I think it would struggle.

    Do you have one with the side entry connection, to create a 'cyclone effect' or just the standard connector?

    I am going to retro-fit one, as I have the wvd900 but only with the front connector.
