    I was driving up the road on Friday and passed a bungalow that was getting a gutter clean. I saw how the guy was doing it and thought "I must try that"… not! The bloke was walking along the edge of the roof with a backpack powered garden blower. And yes, he was using that to clean the muddy gutters What a mess he was making!

    A word of warning, if you ever though that a blower would be a good idea - it isn't. It just blew the muck everywhere. The outsides of the gutters were covered in it, and I hate to think what the garden was like.

    You can actually purchase wet/dry vacuum cleaners that can suck or blow but the blow option I can't see being very beneficial to me. :rolleyes:
