    Interesting to see you don't use an attachment. Have you tried using an attachment, and what difference did you find?

    Where are the blockages happening?

    Thats a good point about the attachment. For nice big open gutters I tend not to bother.
    However of the roofers have come over the gutter then a thin ended attachment is added.

    I do think though that doing it by hand is soo much quicker

    What's the diameter of the poles your using I've just brought a new machine with 50mm poles and it's the dogs nuts!!! My old setup only had 38mm poles and allways got blocked so that might be your problem.

    I think it's best to have both methods, I used both today and they wouldn't have worked visa versa. Sticky mud and large stones, sticks and some other stuff will block the vac tubes

    For first part of clean I turn the nozzle round the other way to remove the heavy **** and if it gets blocked bang it a little on the gutter then turn the nozzle round the other way as all the pics show to use it
