    Because I have such a large data base of customers and schools, I'm now going into gutter cleaning. Someone who helps me out with the large jobs has just purchased a gutter vacs machine (don't know the make) but it runs of a gen.

    But... is there good money in it?!

    yer I earn good money out of it I earn around £150-200 a just doing gutters I just started off with a set of ladders and a stand off and now bought a gutter vac and a few other bits to speed up the job, am trying to make this the main part of my business now as a love doing them quite a few of the windys round here despise doing them and pass them onto me I guess there like marmite you love em or hate em. but definitely worth doing there a nice little add on

    youre missing out on good money and not to be funny but for someone who hasn't been going long you must be mad to refuse work

    You can earn good money but gutter clearing also is a very risky job if you dont use the right kit ;)

    Guttervacs have limitations too as I found out so on some jobs will be totaly useless :D
