Which Gutter Vac?

Recommended Posts

Class On Glass

Does anyone have any experience with the xline gutter vac or the 3000w pro gutter systems vac? Im stuck between the two and I'm wondering if the xline justifies the extra price?

I wouldn't buy the Xline because of what the vac is made from. Any gutter vac HAS to be side entry, otherwise you'll be spending half the time and twice the energy lowering the poles to unblock it. The first one can be adapted by buying a side inlet from Spinaclean,

Very easy to do as long as you've got something to cut the steel drum with.

Side entry spins round the drum, front entry has a lid over to prevent it flying into the motor I believe. All I know is I've worked with both and whilst big wet sycamore leaves are a pain with side entry it doesn't block anywhere near as much. I turnover £20k a year clearing gutters
