New generation of lightweight, high-reach,gutter cleaners launched
A new generation of high-reach gutter cleaning equipment has been launched after five years of development by Spacevac Technologies.
Operated from ground level, the new system has four major features. It removes operational guesswork as it comes with a close circuit TV camera on the cleaning head; it is said to reach higher than any other product - four stories (14 metres); has greater suction power - will safely remove an engineering brick from a gutter; and its carbon fibre tubes are believed to make it much lighter than any other.
It is said to be 40% quicker and a significantly more effective cleaner than any other product.
The Spacevac is powered by a proven Nilfisk Altro vacuum and the poles have a new locking system that ensures no reduction in diameter at the joins, thus eliminating tube blockages.
Unlike many traditional high reach gutter cleaners, the Spacevac is extremely lightweight and can be assembled on the ground by one person - due to heavy tubes some other manufacturers' products have to be assembled in the vertical position by two operators.
In addition to the many health & safety benefits and the elimination of costly scaffolds or cherry pickers, Spacevac is economical on assembly time - a mere three minutes. The high powered vacuum ensures that gutters are cleaned faster and more efficiently with less operator time.
Spacevac provides free UK demonstrations and user training and next day delivery.
Operators and customers can see that the job has been completed effectively by viewing activity on a laptop or smartphone.
"Never before has gutter cleaning been easier, faster or cheaper," says Spacevac.
