    Anyone have any ideas on gutter cleaning wands? I have a few gutters that my ladder won't go up high enough to enable me to reach the gutters to clean out the leaves. I am thinking about the water wnads they sell or making one. I get conflicting information if they are any good.

    A little lift & some extra steel....
    Maybe if the wand is connected to a pressure washer. I got so sick of my gutters, I ripped them all down.

    I had better luck with a shop vac attachment. It worked a lot better than the water wand. The water wand just sprayed the crap everywhere. I just used the hose to spray some water through it once I vaced up all the big stuff.

    I built my own out of 3/4 inch PVC. Put hose attachments on both ends and screwed my high pressure hose nozzle on the end. It works okay, but takes a long time to clear pine needles out on our place. I wind up useing the thing more like a shovel to clear the thickest part of it, then flush with water.
