    I sometimes wonder why I bought one norm. I can earn my money quicker doing windows, but it comes in handy I suppose. I did 3 gutter jobs last week, earned some decent money, got covered in sh!te, van covered in mud and was hard work. I might sell it?

    It's all part of the job norm and yes dumping the waste can be a pain on that size drum when its full. I would never be able to lift mine over a fence on my own nor want to try when its full. That's one way to put your back out you nutter :D

    It's been quite manick for me lately norm what with all the rain as customers notice a wee bit more when water starts pouring over blocked gutters & downspouts onto their heads. I just love it when it rains.... ching ching :D

    I had two like that today...the expresion on their faces was priceless :D

    The third one was a hand job so just scrapped it back to me and instead of bagging it up I just dumped it straight from the gutters onto the overgrow gardens as they would not notice the difference anyway as was so bad:cool:
