Information on Gutters Poles Set for a fraction of suppliers costs

The hose into the unit is 38mm. I use the reducer from 51mm to 38mm to accommodate this.

I use it with aluminium flag poles as I listed in a previous post. Works great! Suction is more than enough for what I need right now!

I received my earlier this week, have 3 gutter cleans lined up for next week. Will use it then. Today I got a notification from eBay that the flag poles have been reduced from £38 to £30... Typical.

Yeah saw that too haha! Sod’s law. Already recouped most of my investment though. Only had it a week and a half!

15m hose for it though so I don’t have to have it right behind me all the time! Definitely suggest investing in a longer hose

Might take the plunge in invest in this set up, could always get carbon poles down the line if I really wanted to and this Vac set ups is hundreds cheaper than the brand makes etc. I just wonder if the vacum was only OK and not great and if the set up was worth investing in. I get a good bit of gutters and some in just horrible awkward angles even for ladders.

How are you guys getting on with this set up of flag poles etc?, how many clamps do you need and where do you use them ? I’m thinking of adding this service to my window cleaning and facia cleans. Any tips on the best attachments would be helpful, does it really suck up long lengths of moss etc easily ?

Using mine quite regularly atm. Probably made my money three times over in two months!
I got 9 clamps just to make sure I had enough. You need to break long moss up as much as you can to suck it up. If you manage to lift it out turn the vacuum off. To let it drop to the floor!

Got any pics of it all assembled ?
I bought 2 sets of the flag poles, I don't think I'll use the full 40ft as they get heavy the higher you go. The vacuum is 100%. I got a go pro camera with it. It's not as you can't view the gutter from the ground unless you're connected to customers WiFi, and I won't be asking that. Fantastic bargain really glad I bought it. Here's a video I made if you want to check it out.

I'm still waiting for my 40' Carbon poles coming from gcs. That character Alex Day said I would have them 10 days ago and now he has went AWOL. He has stopped replying to my emails, I will need to take up a grievance with Ebay or Paypal. What a way to run a business.

Been there done that, sorry to hear that you've had the same problems that many others have. The bloke is an absolute 💩 The sooner he is put out of business the better.

I've heard very very mixed reviews obout them so was very skeptical about ordering. Took the plunge and went for it. He was on the ball replying before my order answering all my questions so I ordered on the Sunday even, nothing come Friday so messaged him Friday evening, no reply, messaged again Monday evening and I got a reply saying I would have them the next day, next day nothing came, come Wednesday I got one part of the delivery and on the Thursday got the other part, everything was perfect and as described so couldn't complain and all within 2 weeks.i messaged to say thanks but no reply then messaged again asking about their 51mm inlet they supply and no reply againm. Maybe I was just lucky. Poles, hose and clamps and fixings are top notch I must say and at that price I'm not complaining? 

 

Nothing worse when your being ****** around like that doh😡

I'm just that busy at moment or I would be registering a complaint. I read on here that some guy got his poles in jig time and thought gcs had turned a corner. Turns out he was lucky and the moment I placed an order, it was a deadend. The problem is, he just stops communicating and puts his head in the sand. I cant fathom out why gcs is still in business? :1f61e:

Send him an email threatening court action, I promise you he replies then. Tell him you're losing money not being able to do jobs and will seek redress in court

As I said I must have just got lucky, had mine within 2 weeks of placing order, everything and as described, was **** fast replying to all my questions before buying but slow once I had paid the money but I have them, such a shame that he has such bad reviews considering his poles and equipment is very good bang for your buck, fairly bad business sense on that front all right...

He probably does not hold stock just orders it from (Alibaba) China when an order is placed..

Well guys got my poles and hose today. :1f603: Emailed him and he said I would get them today. Don't know how he can run a business like that because he knows how to p1ss people off. Its the unknown that people hate and he seems to be good at it.

Feck it, you got them that's the main thing, I would agree, crazy way to run it the lack or responding and not saying when it's shipped and all BUT asides from that what do you think of them all?
