    I have never used one, may I ask how profitable are they?
    If you could tell me how long it would take to clean out the upstairs gutters on this house:

    I'm very interested in them as I do alot of gutters by hand. Very good money in gutter and soffit clearing/cleaning.

    Do they take up much room in your van? Can they be compacted down in size?

    it depends on size of the hoover you use i drive a transit connect and also carry a powerwasher and wfp trolley drums of water guttervac poles etc so if you want to see a small hoover thats suitable try clarke gutter vac .com

    i charge from 40 up and if theres a gutter garden with weeds etc growing out of them i charge extra as the vac will not cope with most of these so its a ladder job then
