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

the nilfisk 30t is fine for domestic use it has a51mm inlet & can be matched up with gutter sucker poles &hose.each 2 there own,what ever job you do you still have 2 get up the ladder.ideal if u haven't got a great deal of room in the van.

At least it's a slightly larger motor as the nilfisk 30t is 1800 watts I think.

 

I've seen a few vids of them in action and spoken to others that use a nilfisk 30t that use them with sky vac gutter sucker carbon poles. They all seem to agree they are ok for domestic work. What one did say though the filter is not great and can easily lose suction power so he uses another types of filter in it also a fine mesh filter bag.

 

How is the suction on yours Mark?

ok I know there not as big as some of the other vacs.the filter needs cleaning after each job if its wet crap etc,but the suction is great.ive cleaned out loads of gutters with this machine.

I might get myself one of those nilfisk 30t then Mark as some of the jobs I get with access issues that small vac would come in handy maybe than trying to lug me big vac about.
