    Anyone use or used gutter vacs and poles from here look decent prices and guy spoke to says they build and use their own kit too?

    You get what you pay for I suppose.

    the 3000 w triple vac is worth about £200
    the ally poles they sell are very heavy so not worth getting unless you want a good work out.

    Not sure what their carbon poles are going to be like for durability but with that ali adjustable bracket and ali head & tools on the end defets the object of using carbon pole if you ask me.

    I've spoken with the chap many moons ago when they first started selling guttervacs and seems a nice chap. I know this was a spin off from his gutter clearing work so he does know what he is talking about. However like I said before you get what you pay for as after all he only sells budget type system that you could put together yourself and have better gardiner poles than the ones he sells in his packages.

    thanks smurf

    yes I agree its just im not into diy at all and all this is new to me too so seems a minefield still...

    wouldn't know which actual vac to go for even? and then where would I get all the correct gutter tools from that will fit the poles from gardiners? and where would I get correct hose from and what length etc etc, just don't know where to start and who to buy from etc??? if can point me in right direction would rather do that but need to know im getting right stuff that will fit and work correctly on the job? that's my concern.

    he told me his poles are 100% carbon fibre and the vacs are nilsfik which heard are good?

    thanks for all the continued advice, appreciate it mate, cheers

    There's a few more factors Paul, like how high are you going? How frequent use? How fit are you? You've said you don't like DIY but could you learn? Will you have a ladder for backup/other issues that arise?

    Things go wrong as often as they go right even with pricey gear and its good to be able to mod and repair as you go along to a certain extent.

    If anyone recommends specific stuff it might not be right for your situation without knowing more.

    I think a few people on here have that system you mention, search the forum. I think they were happy with it from memory

    Cheers. How do you find the kit from gutter cleaning systems? The vac any good? Was looking at the 3000w carbon fibre pole kit, any bad blockages? Plenty of work doing gutters? Thanks

    I only got it yesterday so not tried it yet. All looks OK though. I like the fact you get a few different tools thrown in. Will practice first on friends and family before I advertise the service. I need to get a ladder set up also as back up after reading up on here.
