Gutter Vac Poles


Recommended Posts

Right, I'm sick of my alloy poles. They are too heavy and they flop around and don't seem that secure when there are 3 or 4 poles all connected. Anyone else find this happens when using alloy poles? So, I'm thinking of getting some carbon poles. For those of you that use carbon, do they flop around like alloy and is it worth paying £££'s for them. I've just spent 3 1/2 hours clearing and I'm knackered. I probably do no more than one vac job a month and can't decided if spending the dosh is justified.

Yes @Tuffers mine are the same. The top one always feel it's gonna fall off & comes loose. And yes there heavy but as I only do about 5/6 a month & only between October & February I gonna persevere


Yeah, even when the clamp is fully tightened the poles rock all over the shop. I nearly chucked the whole lot in the hedge today, blockages galore from oak leaves :mad:

I've used 38mm Carbon which were ok ish and 50mm alloy, but can't seperate the damn things when clamped, had to snap one to get it back in the van lol... Anybody else have that problem?


Going to invest £500 on 40ft of 50mm Carbon poles in the New year as use them often.
