Default Hedgehog gutter brushes

Hi I'm interested to know if anyone has used these on a static van and, if so, were they effective? They aren't cheap but they might do the job on my leafy plot.

Thanks

Not at those prices
I'm sure you could find something at a fraction of the price.

They seem overpriced to me. There must be one heck of a margin on them. Definitely not for me at that price.

Are they hand made from Madagascan Hedgehog quills?

I think that would end up in my shed along with the snake oil.

Perhaps it's the cost of training the teams of hedgehogs to do the sweeping up that makes them so expensive

Seriously though I wouldn't mind betting that there must be a cheaper alternative available. I know that somewhere on this forum is a discussion about keeping gutters debris free

Heard mixed reviews on these with caravans. They sell these type of guards on Amazon, just type hedgehog gutter in the search box, also plenty of reviews on them

Be interested myself on any further feedback.

I used a few reels or the plastic mesh type. From poundland comes with fixing clips done the whole van gutters for a fiver...( Can't be robbed at that price?)

We bought ours last year from here http://www.coopersofstortford.co.uk/...-prodst09588i/ If you buy 2 you get 1 free. Got the clips off ebay.

If you have a Karcher power washer, you can buy an attachment for cleaning drains. That might be more cost effective and easier.
