More Product Information The "Rotary Paddle Brush" is great for removing dry/loose leaves. While spinning with your cordless drill, this attachment quickly and effectively removes the debris,it actually makes cleaning your gutters fun! This is perfect for routine maintenance.
The "Gutter Brush" with built-in water jet nozzle is a non-rotary attachment used to drag and lift the debris up and out of the gutter. Once the heavy debris is removed, the built-in water jet nozzle is used to rinse the gutter clean, inside and out.
The "Gutter Scoop" with built-in water jet nozzle can tackle the toughest debris such as wet compost debris or hard, crusty build-up. The built-in "Water Jet Nozzle" is used to help loosen the debris and then rinse the gutter after debris removal.

- Not the great gutter-cleaning hope! Review by SGA
Not the great gutter-cleaning hope!
I really wish this product worked well. Unfortunately, the rotary brush tool simply stirs up the leaves and twigs in the gutter. Although some leaves and debris come flying out, most of the leaves fall back into the gutter. This is a bit of a design defect, in my opinion. I think if they put a guard over the top of the rotary brush tool, it would prevent the leaves and debris from spinning back into the gutter. But, likely, that would just get clogged quickly which would be a different issue.
Rotating the tool at different speeds had no useful effect on the amount of leaves that would come out. I know this not because I systematically tried different speeds, but because it took so long to try to clean one section of the gutter that the battery eventually ran down.
On the positive side, it does seem to be built very well. The tubes and material seem to be high quality. That's the only reason I gave it a second star. But, if the best quality tool isn't designed properly to solve the problem, then it's really not a tool at all, right?
Oh, and unlike the guy in the picture wearing a nice shirt and no eye protection, you really ought to wear eye protection. Why? Gravity, folks. You're looking up to see if stuff is coming down. Some of it does come down. Right on your open eyes.
