Gutter Cleaner that is a Beater

04 February 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Claiming to be the world’s most powerful pole operated gutter cleaner, the SkyVac Industrial is said to be at least three times more powerful than any other competing model.

The SkyVac Industrial is capable of drawing 8,000 litres of air per minute and lifting water 150in, removing heavy tufts of grass up to 5kg.

Celebrating its fifth year of UK production, the machine has three motors controlled by a power management lever to operate on 6,500-8,000 litres suction per minute and to ensure economical use of electricity.

The SkyVac Industrial is made to the company’s own specification with a vacuum unit that has a side loading input port and internal vortex system so no rubbish blocks on the filter. A custom built all terrain industrial specification steel chassis enables it to be wheeled down steps and it has carbon fibre poles which will reach 12m.

The SkyVac Industrial has a 3,300W motor and comes with a range of tools – two standard day tools for normal or extra-long reach, two reducers for small openings and a stainless steel dirt breaker.

The machine is operational from ground level and there is an optional camera available to enable the operator to check gutters before and after cleaning.
