    have already got a gutter vac with poles etc.but looking at one of the 3000w vacs on a trolley.the inlet is important as it needs to be 50mm.

    It has 2"/51mm inlet, 1000w x3 motors. I find it a PITA tbh. I have the alloy poles and when you have 6 of them connected up it's freekin hard work and even when they are clamped right up they don't seem stable to me. I'm thinking of getting carbon poles for it, but can't justify forking out £415 for 7 poles ATM. I'm not that impressed with what it sucks up either, it always seems to leave stuff behind.

    the gutter sucker cuff would fit that machine tuffers.its not sucking up very well because of the u bend you've got with that package.the vac looks ok to me infact its similar to the one im going to buy.try the gutter sucker set,you get the hose 44mm,poles & tools.try the silicon half bend on the end of your pole.you then push the tool of your choice in.its car tubing.you can get it on ebay or amazon
