 Lowes $150.

 Also Sears sells the same thing in a 4 cycle! Tried that one too. We think the 2 stroke delivers more power. Uhh Cfm?

I have been using a blower to clean gutters for years. I don't think I've seen a gutter that was to packed that my blower wouldn't clean out. Sometimes you need to use the tip of the blower aggressively in the gutter channel to get thing moving.

On the steep roofs where the edge is a little scary to walk with a blower ladder jacks work real well to work the gutter line quickly also.

You are correct, I find most of the time I have to reach in by hand to clean and

put debris in a 5 gal bucket. Sometimes I get lucky, find dry debris, and can blow it out.

I wish I had taken pictures of the gutters we cleaned yesterday. About 500 feet on a metal factory building.

I was lucky on it. I didnt climb up and look in them when I bid it. When we got up there the roof metal extended into the gutter and only left an inch in places to get your hand in.... Lucky we had a blower with us. It was a small pita but still easy money.

My Boy and I worked 4 hours yesterday Cleaning Gutters In Tampa and made us 500.00 CA$H Money for about 4 hours easy work! Dad worked the ground (I watched) as my son blew the gutters out with a Blower. I sold 2 other neighbors on a yearly service, so now we got 3 on that street! One big 2 story was 300.00, one 1 story was 200.00
These rich folks will PAY to get their gutters blown out people, no need to give it away as "part of the roof cleaning job"  These attorneys and doctors cut US no slack, so why should we ?

I always hated the mess created when you blew out the gutters and I was at my buddys shop checking out the one that you can suck stuff up with. Its about $250 and I want to try it but worst cast scenerio I can flip it around and still have a blower

We have found tennis balls all the time. They clog a gutter real quick!! It is funny to find it and be the only thing in the gutter. If that is the case we say $20 instead of whatever we were charging.

 You are too nice Bill! In Potomac last week, A town house, All the gutters were clean except for one. A plastic bag had gotten in one downspout??? Never seen that before. charged him the regular price. The same goes if we have to take every downspout apart. No up charge. This guy, we do all of his properties!

 Whenever there is water sitting a gutter here is what we do, I really wish this was the paid section!

Water in gutter because of a clogged DS. First you must clear the DS. While the gutter is draining check the other side of the house out. This will reduce the dirt blown out that ya need to rinse off.

Mike, I agree.  The price is the price.  Sometimes you win sometimes you don't.

Ive used a hand held stihl that would picked stuff up. But it wasnt stout enough to clean gutters with.

I may be wrong. It couldve been stopped up or something.

For cleaning gutters I'm not sold on vaccums. Franchise called Aerotech that uses a vaccum. Just another Roof shamoo guy! How do they clean the DS?
