Contractor grade construction and parts interchangeable design.
Gutter Master has been solidly built from accurate laser cut welded steel and is protected with an automotive grade high gloss powder coat finish. In true Aussie tradition your vacuum is built like a brick you know what. There are no weak fiddly bits to break. Like you, we will not compromise on quality and you can be assured that only premium grade industrial rated components are used in the construction of your vacuum. A modular parts interchangeable design offers you maximum flexibility in setup configurations.
Compact size fits in a box trailer
Your Gutter Master was purposely designed to fit on the back of most standard tray top utility vehicles or even inside a domestic sized 6ft x 4ft box trailer. Your machine is comparatively lightweight at only 175 kilograms and can quickly be fork lifted into place. Gutter Master is also able to fit sideways across the rear door inside most light commercial vans. This way you can have a fully enclosed, weather protected gutter cleaning solution.
Your vacuum's dimensions are a compact 1280mm long x 750mm wide x 1200mm high. This size is about as long as, but narrower than, an Australian timber skid pallet. If fitted with the optional, swivel castor wheels, your Gutter Master will fit through all standard 800mm wide doorways. Also, inside all passenger elevator lifts if ever required.
Optional custom trailer includes ladder racks with lockable storage box
Gutter Master has an optional either single axle or dual axle custom trailer built under our own trailer builder's licence specifically for the machine.
Single Axle Trailer Specifications
Features a balanced load layout and the tow ball weight has been limited to just 65 kilograms downforce. This is perfectly suited to all standard 1000 kilogram limit towbars. This 9ft x 6ft flat top trailer was designed to be towed by even small passenger cars. The trailer features an extra long drawbar to enable very easy reversing. Total mass of the trailer, vacuu, hose reel, two empty steel drums and ladder racks is just 700 kilograms. This allows for an extra 300 kilograms of additional on board load capacity to remain in the under 1000 kilograms tow capacity limit. Your trailer comes complete with good looking Ford Sunraysia white rims and brand new 14 inch tyres.
Twin Axle Trailer Specifications
For the well established operator with larger sized contract jobs such as schools and commercial work our excellent 10ft x 6ft Tandem Axle trailer is a must. This heavy duty, mechanically braked unit is rated to carry a decent two ton load in addition to the weight of your Gutter Master system. It is capable of transporting up to five full steel drums of vacuumed material with the full drum loads evenly balanced between the wheel axles. The floorplan layout of Gutter Master's twin axle trailer is balanced for a low tow ball downforce weight.
Experienced operator's know that twin axle trailer's are notorious for being hard to ground maneuvre. To make steering easier your trailer is fitted with an extra large swing-away jockey wheel that is able to wind up lift the two front wheels off the ground. This will allow you to hand steer this bigger unit with the ease of a single axle trailer.
Both trailers purposely have open sides to allow for easy access and the rapid air drying of the main checkerplate deck after hosing down. This design helps to prevent ponding of water thus minimising potential for the development of surface rust.
The ladder rack frame will hold a couple of decent size 12ft to 14ft ladders without issue. Total ladder cross rail height is 1.8m high from the ground level. This allows you to park your trailer inside a standard car garage. A motor trimmer, with minimal additional support framing, could easily fully enclose the trailer in a vinyl or canvas cover using the existing ladder frame structure if desired.
An A-frame mounted 1.5m wide x 0.4m high x 0.4m deep lockable storage box is now standard equipment on all our trailers. This allow you to securely lock away all your tools and accessories.
Also available is an optional weatherproof, vinyl covered, zippered sides, fully enclosed trailer. Ladder racks are side mounted on the guards as the roof is vinyl covered.
Again, like all your Gutter Master's components, this trailer is not a cheap mass produced unit. Our trailers are surface prepped and fully Zinc primer undercoated prior to finishing with a good looking Hammertone Charcoal Grey Kill Rust enamel paint finish.
Vacuum truck like performance
Do not be misled by its compact size. Your Gutter Master is nothing like the ordinary vacuums you get from a hire shop. It delivers the serious suction grunt that one really needs to do effective gutter cleaning with long vacuum hoses. This excellent machine eliminates the problems associated with lower performance conventional steel drum type vacuums. You will be finished faster and earn more money with Gutter Master.
Your Gutter Master vacuum does not have the higher capital cost, the heavier bulk weight, nor the much higher operating costs of expensive vacuum truck or trailer mounted tank based machines of similar performance. Those heavy pressure tank based machines absolutely have their place. They are ideally suited to bulk vacuum excavation or extra heavy sludge recovery jobs. However, they can be a costly overkill for use on gutter cleaning jobs. Gutter Master strikes the right balance between cost versus performance.
