    ive just emailed asking if its ready yet he has a normal website for his own business just google gutter-force gutter clearing, he was in progress of an equipment site, just give him a ring say Paul Luckman in Barnsley recommended you, did me a great deal and kit is excellent to think I nearly wasted a lot of money on skyvac gear, cheers

    I have a gutter vac which the first year I had it I used it loads, but haven't used it in a year or more, considering selling it but know I will regret it at some point, I just get up a ladder with a 5m harris pole and pro gutter tools on the end, loads faster and easier and you can check the downpipes while you're at it.

    Of coarse if you are doing loads of 3+ story work the hoover is obviously great, but for domestic houses ladder and pole is quicker and easier I find.

    Hi, I bought the complete package from skyvac (industrial) last year. At first I didn't want to invest in a too much expensive kit. But I think it's best to buy good quality tools. For example, the carbon poles are very light and robust. The first job we made was the gutter cleaning of a church (not the Bell tower) with 12 m high. It was easy to do the job in 4 hours (two persons). The vacuum cleaner with 2 motors is incredibly powerful, if we don't pay attention we can remain stuck on the gutter. Thus I can say that I am a satisfied customer with skyvac equipment.

    How did you clear the downpipes? or even check if they were blocked?
