    Somehow I get this feeling it's one of those things that works great in demos and videos and television infomercials and testimonials and all the pics and blablabla about how fast and good of a job it does, until YOU buy one and go to put it to actual use, then suddenly and mysteriously it becomes an absolutely worthless piece of crap. :laugh:

    Well that has to be the dumbest thing Iv'e seen today... How often do you find DRY and LOOSE debris in a gutter?? Pretty much never. That thing is just another grand scam. However the inventor will get rich I'm sure.

    Mostly people don't call you for eave cleaning till they are having problems. That means plugged down spouts and eaves full of water. However, when you do get an easy job, because someone has it done routinely, I have been known to just make a bunch of noise and pretend to be doing something.

    I might as well get me one of these for the winter.

    the other videos below the first one where the guy is putting it in the gutter show it working and running the gutter.

    I don't know though.. 15 hours to charge the battery and it runs for 20-30 minutes which they say is about 250' ...... not very useful compared to a nice high pressure hose.
