    I also have 3kw with Aluminium poles. The vac suction is great and though the poles can be handled just fine, lighter ones may be better, especially if working at extended heights.

    But...

    (1) The difference in price between my vac, and the more expensive 4.2kw "Gutter Vac" is quite a bit, would it be really worth it?
    (2) The poles get lined with mud anyway during use, so would it make much difference betwen alu and carbon fibre poles when working with them? I don't know if it would.
