Lowes had a possible tool for us
I saw a Poulan leaf blower than doubled as a vaccum and a mulcher. It came with a little bag and it would suck up leaves, sticks, dry crap and mulch it up. I thought for DRY gutter situation this would be awesome. Its small enough and light enough to use on a ladder or up on the roof. I know alot of gutters are wet so you'd have to use the good old fashioned by hand method, but for a dry gutter I think it would make life easy. Opinions?? My last gutter job was basicallt just small amounts of dirt, dried leaves and peanut shells(elderly lady feeds the birds peanuts and they go to the roof and crack the shells open and all the shells roll into the gutter).
