Gutter vac

Only used the mirror a couple of times, found it more of a pain in the arse than anything.

 

It does work, but takes a lot of dicking about.

If needed I use a mini fpv quad copter taped to the end of the nozzle, completely wireless, takes pictures and video.

That looks knowhere near as good.

 

Plastic for a start, looks like a small hose entry, but hard to tell, looks like it is single speed, I wouldn't have one over mine any day.

Not on a nice trolley either, that will get really heavy fast and be tough to move on those wheels outside.

Have a look on ebay as most of the suppliers are on their

 

 

I have been trying to contact these without success. One man band? Or gone out of business.

 

Who is your supplier for gutter vacs Smurf?

I started with an omni guttervac and had a few wet/dry vac's since then

What are your thoughts on that Niflisk above @Smurf ?

Bloke I saw yesterday was using a 1400w gutter vac. It was light. Had great suction & was pulling everything out. Was well impressed with it.

I usually use 4 sections so 40 is not needed in most situations

 

You could reach a passing plane with 40 poles :laugh:

Really?...Sorry but I find that very hard to believe as I've done a few myself that even an omni 4200 watt vac was useless :rolleyes:

The reason why I say that is sometimes I find it easier & quicker to pull compacted sods out by hand especially in corners and/or parts of the guttering which is very tight and needs clearing properly.

 

Don't get me wrong a guttervac is ideal on some jobs but I do struggle on others depending how bad they are. Some jobs I've had a guttervac is no good at all especially ones full of pine needles
