I have been cleaning gutters in the St Louis area for over 25 years now. I don't see how a robot could unstop the downspout or inform the home owner of loose guttering...
I have had my Gutter Cleaning St Louis Site up for over only 0ne year now...

Gutter Cleaning St Louis

I watched this thing on a video and noticed a lot of the leaves fell back into the guttering. Here in the St Louis area where we have many leaves I feel it is best to have your gutters hand cleaned twice a year.

metal cleaner

I have tried every metal cleaner under the sun the best product by far is quickleen from http://www.quickleen.co.uk It clean all types of metal stainless steel copper brass aliminum and it cleans tile also. eco friendly non toxic odour free kind to your hands and health. Metal cleaning was so quick and it's cheap to buy the more you buy.

I agree, its best to clean out gutters and downspouts in the St. Louis area twice a year.

This robot certainly will make our lives easier as we don't need to do the cleaning of our gutters manually but roboticaly. Cool!

it may be a nasty job, but you got to clean out your gutters

Wouldn't a gutter guard be cheaper and easier?

Gutter Cleaning

Yeah, some people find it dirty but work is to be done. Isn't it some costly?

Augusta Gutters

In my own opinion, Manual cleaning is much better than this.


These guys are very innovative, I hope they do come up with other robots for the rest of the household chores.
I too disliked climbing up there and cleaning the gutters, hence, I replaced my gutters with Easy Flow which has built in leaf guards that greatly minimizes the need for cleaning.

Gutter Cleaning Grants Pass

Definitely an innovation, but I don't see how they could take over from humans. Minor cleaning maybe, but not every single time :)

Gutter Cleaning Medford

Nifty. But yeah, it's not going to be very clean :)

Gutter guard

I own a pressure washing company and Ive been cleaning gutter for 4 years now. This devise looks like it would make a mess. It would be easier to use a blower. I sell a gutter guard called gutterglove and it eliminates gutter cleaning forever

I recently came across your article and have been reading along. I want to express my admiration of your writing skill and ability to make readers read from the beginning to the end. I would like to read newer posts and to share my thoughts with you.

Cleaning the gutter is a very important home protection task that effectively maintains and keeps the home from possible harm and damages.


If you haven't used a gutter guard before, I would definitely use Gutterglove gutter protection. I installed it on my home because it keeps out all the leaves, pine needles and even roof sand grit from entering your gutters because it uses a very fine micro mesh for filtering all debris out. I don't have to climb a dangerous ladder to clean out my gutters ever again. Yahoo! You know, they also got the highest rating in a national consumers magazine from testing numerous gutter guards. I just wanted to recommend them and pass on this tip. Here's their website: www.Gutterglove.com.

No more gutter cleaning!

High Pressure Cleaning

I would really love to see this machine in action.


Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.

Who ever invented this is a genius! He could make millions once he sells this machine into the market. Very unique and helpful work of art.

Whoa, now that's a high-tech gutter cleaner! This can be a hit for home owners who can't find the time to clean their gutters by themselves. But here's a point of concern: does it work effectively given the different factors that may affect the robot and the gutter? Hm, if you can see this worthy of your $99, then try it. If not, you can have your contractor do deal with the cleaning. :)

gutter cleaning

Yeah I don't think this can replace hard working individuals, there is only so much robots can do. Thanks for sharing!


Absolutely, robots are really great. As modern technology grows there are already a lot robots that could also do human work.

I would be interested to see how this robot works in real life situations.
