Yes I looked at this before. Being new to this there is options for poles and hoses. Would you mind advising me what to go for. Then there's a bag. Should I get that and is a camera necessary.  That's what appealed to me with Brodex it all came in one unit.  I appreciate your help.

Cheers

That’s the one I have , I bought the vac and hose only (10 meters ) as I also have a big vac that runs off a genie, and use the poles I already had , I wanted a smaller vac for shop fronts etc , I must say that it’s an exelent peace of kit far better than I expected it will lift large heavy turfs out of gutters at 50 feet heigh easily . Grippatank poles are supposed to be good but I don’t have them personally . A camera is useful to have but not essential most of the cameras that come with the kit arnt that good , I cannot remember who it was on hear might be @Part Timer bought the sky vac and the camera that came with it wasn’t that great , I think unless they have changed it the monitor and camera are held on the pole by a c clip very poor fixing and likely to drop off when you are experienced using a vac you can feel when the gutter is clear , I have a camera system but don’t use it that much tk be fair , mostley  for quoting ,just to see how bad it is , sometimes it’s useful to be able to show the customer before and after video footage . If you are just starting out gutter vaccing I would concentrate on getting a good vac and carbon poles , and as I could afford it later get a camera then .

The camera and screen only last 3 hours which for a vac with an industrial tag should last a lot longer. I have 4 and 5 hour jobs so I use my cheap Chinese camera and screen

Hose wise the standard 10 meters is what you want , with regards to poles I really am not that familiar with them ,the ones with the clamps are supposed to be very good but are oviously dearer , I would give them a ring and ask there advice , I wouldn’t want to give you the wrong advice as it’s a lot of money , you won’t be disappointed with there kit it’s very good stuff
