Isn't the Omnivac only a single 1500w 

  No they did a three motor 3600 wat either mains or 110 volt and a 4200 watt three motor one , I had the 3600 110 awesome thing

Think they are a bit like - Dual Pumps, they will only deal with suppliers who meet a certain criteria based on proven annual turnover...

Out of all the Gutter Machines, I think Spinaclean Industrial ticks all the boxes bar the price. All the rest don't seem like they want to sell them or their website is a nightmare. That's my next investment, an Industrial 240v and run it off a genni if I can't get power.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but what is a genie? It’s been mentioned a couple of times on here and I have never heard of it before..

A genie is a generator used to produce electricity to run an electrical item either 240 volts mains power or 110 volts .

It’s a magical character that comes out of a lantern/bottle when you rub it.

Just searching for one of these and came across this;

https://cleancareireland.com/product/elsea-titanus-gutter-vac-heavy-duty-industrial-vacuum/

Interestingly it appears to be a side entry version 🤷‍♂️

Top it off with these;

I only fancied carbon poles for when I get an employee, wouldn't want them cracking their head open 🤔 I have some carbon poles currently but they're not the best.

I don't completely understand what taper fit is but just looking at the pic I can see what you mean. Back to the drawing board I think.

I have to sprayed wd40 on every joint when I use them or they stick together. Its a thing you forget to do once and never again because it take two people to pull them apart.

@THL4KEL just pointed out that £800 is plus vat... Thats nearly a grand 😬😬

 

I might be better getting a Numatic and a side entry converting thing.

Is the side entry conversion literally as simple as cutting a hole and installing the inlet?

You remove the front plastic inlet and the hole is already there. All you have to do is make it a bit bigger with a grinder. The 52mm side inlet from Sinaclean will set you back about £70. Then all you do is bolt it on and use CT1 as a sealer and it works great.
