    How would you clear this corner out properly by guttervac or by hand?

    Waiting to find out the trick here but I'll have a go anyway.
    If I had a vac I would get up and pull out the grass in a one'er along with allthe bit of mortar that have fallen in the gulley. With that much water in the gutter I'd say the downpipe is either very blocked or the gutter wasnt installed with the right slant in the first place so I would use the gutter vac to suck out all the water. I'd then use the camera on the end on the pole to spy in the windows for milfs.

    How did I do? :D

    OK ladders would be the best bet on that one as you could not vac the corner out properly so I would use a vac up me ladder like you say once the sods have been removed,

    if I could not get a thin nozzel in the gap from either side I would poke all the **** out under that tile/flashing then vac the rest of the guttering out.

    I only had a 250 ltr in that one as the max payload was 600 kg, With all the other kit I carried about it was well over the max load. Oops officer! :D

    If I was just doing windows I would have stuck a larger tank in it as 250 is not enough for an average wfp guy days work.
