Get your hands out of the gutter with this leaf-blower-like device

You might be one of the many people who look forward to beautiful foliage once fall rolls around, but that doesn’t mean you want to clean it up. Leaves have the potential to clog gutters and create a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Now, one device may be able to make gutter cleaning a bit easier in autumn.

EZ Gutter CleanerMeet the EZSmart Gutter Cleaner from EZSmart Tools. This device just might eliminate your dread for gutter cleaning altogether. The product acts like a leaf blower but for your gutters. It generates air at 120 miles per hour to effectively remove dirt and debris lodged into every tight corner. You might be asking how you’ll get the EZSmart Gutter Cleaner up toward the top of your home. After all, the biggest hassle of gutter cleaning is breaking out the old ladder.

This is what makes the EZSmart Gutter Cleaner so nifty: You can attach it to a sturdy extension pole. This means you won’t have to get up on a ladder to remove any of the foliage. Once you hook the product onto its pole, you can move it along all of your gutters and blow away the debris. The adjustable pole also gives you easy access to problem areas, such as roof valleys, where foliage can get trapped. With its custom casing, the Gutter Cleaner should coast smoothly over gutters of all types; you don’t need to worry about whether it’ll work on your house.

Finally, the EZSmart Gutter Cleaner has a rechargeable lithium ion battery, meaning you won’t have to fuss with wires as you tackle this seasonal chore. EZSmart Tools has given the EZSmart Gutter Cleaner a starting retail price of $199. However, you can pledge $189 on the Kickstarter campaign page today and get one for slightly cheaper. It’ll arrive by September 2015, just in time for you to start all of your autumn yard cleaning tasks.
