Gutter cleaning tool.

G,day idea sharers,looking to attach a gutter scoop to a long handle for cleaning of gutters from the ground (I don’t like heights) I can’t wash them out as I need to scoop first any ideas the scoop will have to be stepped out to get around gutter edge,cheers Krusty.

Hi @Krusty,

 

Would you consider having a tradesperson give the gutters a good clean out and then installing gutter guard? This would be a onetime cost, and then it would be straightforward to brush off any debris from the ground.

 

Since gutters were created, product manufacturers have been trying to come up with such a tool. The very nature of scooping up and out of a channel above head height is difficult. As you have mentioned, the tool would need a gooseneck. 

 

Here's my contribution to the discussion. You could bolt a Pinnacle Large White U Hook with its mounting tab bent out to the handle of a Spear & Jackson Gutter Scoop. You'd then be able to bolt the hook to a Hy-Clor 4.5m Telescopic Pole.

 

Let me mention @TedBear and @redracer01 to see if they can think of any ideas.

Re: Gutter cleaning tool.

That's an impressive picture of the device design! I am not a fan of Gutter Guard... in my experience it lets small debri drop through, which can form into a thick mud, unless you check on it and wash it out regularly. If you don't, then you have to remove the GG to clean the hard mud out. But it depends on what the main problem (type & size of debri) to be solved is.  And you couldn't use the long handled scoop idea easily with GG fitted.

Wouldn't the extension scoop be fantastic with a camera attached - all high tech? (I can't contribute much more because I prefer to get on the roof with a brush & hose & see that it is clean, which isn't the method wanted in this discussion. )
