I'm just in the final stages of starting up my own gutter cleaning and pressure washing business. I've been reading about gutter vacuums most of the summer. I've gone for the 40ft pole set, mainly as a marketing tool, Can't see me doing much over 2/3 storeys, Looked at the vacuums on offer with the poles and wasn't to impressed tbh. So started doing a little reading into and inquiring about wet/dry vacuums. Was chatting to my local karcher dealer and he had an ex-demo NT 65/2 in stock, 2750w but has a air flow rate of 148 l/s and a vacuum 254 mbar and a 65ltr tank. 12 month warranty and the guys in my local town if it did break. Whole lot has set me back about £700. I wish i could do them all with a vacuum, but things aren't going to be that easy. My main marketing tools are going to be my sign written van, 2000 leaflets, an advert in ever local paper and anywhere that i can stick my business card and leaflet up. Anyway, whole point of this was to introduce my self and hopefully as time goes on share ideas, tips and tricks.
