advice on gutter vac

I have those poles, and never ever clean them. And they don’t stick together. I have Sky vac ones, just a different name. Do my think sky vac do them any more though. The either do these cheaper shinny ones now, or the expensive elite. I got mine back in Oct 2015.

I'm thinking of getting a set of Sinaclean's Elite poles for my Vac, are they any good?

I don't think it's that simple i.e.just cutting a hole and fitting side entry, Sky Vac has a plate inside it I believe that blocks debris going where it shouldn't. My vac has a removable steel cylinder that blocks debris going in the motor.

Mild steel plate that goes halfway round it, stops anything hitting the filter directly

That makes sense. My current vac has a plate installed directly in front of the inlet so nothing touches the filter. It would appear that the Numatic CVD900 is the same as Grippa sell so with a side entry conversion it should be the same. I can't imagine it would be too difficult to fashion a plate to protect that side of the filter 🤔

You would probably void your warranty..

Converting it to side entry would anyway

Good point chaps. I've emailed that company as they have a discontinued model that is already side entry. I'll see what they can do.

My 135 degree bend on my top pole was blocking because its the hose type I think. I just bought Spinaclean's Rigid neck Accessory Kit for £234. I hope my carbon pole will fit into it. If not then I will have to wait till i buy the elite poles next month. Everything is quite expensive in this game, i'm beginning to notice but one can charge accordingly.

I’ve got an adjustable swan neck on the end of my gutter vac. You will find reaching over first floor extensions or conservatories etc one angle will be a struggle. Long reaches need a less of a bend. Even down the side of houses with only 1 metre width you will need a sharper angle.

I would like only one rigid neck on my gutter pole at all times but as @Stevieboy has quoted its not possible and a variety is necessary.

Minefield that bit. I'm gonna use my current ones I think. The poles I linked to above somewhere aren't recommended because they stick together.

Banging my head against a wall with this one, too much I don't understand.

 

I went back to look at the Elsea Tianus. From what I can see that is 3600w and which is above the 3000w maximum recommendation for a standard socket.

Went back to look at the sky vac industrial. Same problem, 3300w.

It would appear that either of these options will cost me a further £600 for a generator.

 

The Numatic one I linked to earlier;

Is only 2000w but has twin motors. It might sound thick but I assume that doesn't mean 4kw, just 2kw.

You should be alright with a 3600w plugged in the cooker socket of a house. You will not be running all 3 motors all the time on all jobs. I’ve got a 3000w Maxblast. Never missed a beat in 6 years. 2000w (2kw) should be ok but it’s nice having the 3rd motor for the extra power on some jobs. Especially removing big weeds and the root balls from top of down pipes.
