    To be honest I was undecided RC do i prat about setting up me guttervac as well as using a ladder or just do it by hand as the downspout was blocked anyways.

    I decided to go for the hand job option as could not be arsed to set me guttervac up

    Two ladder sets and I was done in under 20 mins

    That included unblocking the downspout & charging extra for fitting a gutter ballon.

    Makes you wonder who needs a guttervac anyway on straightforward jobs like that

    What do you think folks? :Image16:

    Cheers Mart...

    Don't let not having a van put you off as that ladder setup will fit onto any car roof bars too.
    As long as you don't try putting it on the roof of say a smart car then it would just look silly. :Image13:

    Yea, I would like a roof rack....I just don't like the bloody price of um for what they are. Especially when I'd need the clamps too not to mention more ladders as my small triples won't reach guttering.

    And ye mate you can use it without the blue thing, smurf helped me with my ladder setup, the blue thing is an ankalad, and the thing at the top is a microlight standoff, both pretty deer but i picked up mine cheap as hell on ebay
