Weed eaters are a really handy tool for any person to have around the house and they are great for people who are into professional landscaping too.
Weed eaters can go places that conventional lawn mowers just can’t go, whether gas or electric powered it’s a tool that anybody should have.
A weed eater can do so much more than just do simple lawn trimming or bush whacking though.
A weed eater can convert into other tools too so you don’t have to buy multiple tools to get a big job done; the tool we are here to talk about is a gutter cleaning leaf blowing kit.

The Leaf Blower/Gutter Cleaner
A leaf blower is a really great tool to have because after you are done cutting whatever you needed to trim you can blow away into a nice and neat pile for removal.
Blowing away your trimmings is not the only thing you can do though, you can also do gutter cleaning with them.
Cleaning out your rain gutters is a really important thing to do because if you don’t you could flood your house; it’s made a lot easier with a leaf blowing gutter cleaning kit.
Those weeds are just really tedious so get an attachment for a leaf blower for the string trimmer that you already have and take care of them no problem!
The Gutter Cleaning Attachment
So, did you know that your weed eater could possibly have a gutter cleaning attachment that can be switched out for the trimming head.
It should be noted that you do need a weed eater that can handle a leaf blowing attachment; not all weed eaters can have different attachments.
However if it can then you are in luck because that means you only need to buy an attachment or two instead of a whole new leaf blower.
It’s really great because you can attach a gutter cleaning kit to any gas powered or electric powered weed eater or string trimmer.
What To Look For In Your Leaf Blowing Attachment
There are a few different things that you want to look for in your leaf blowing attachment.
One of the first things you should know is that a gas powered weed eater will provide a lot more power for the leaf blower so will be able to get the job done a lot faster and blow away more at once. You don’t want to stand there forever on a ladder or on the roof with heavy equipment.
Another thing to look out for is the weight of the attachment; these things aren’t that small so they do add some substantial weight to the weed whacker, anywhere from 5-12 pounds extra.
Remember that you are going to be up on ladder or roof so the extra weight does add a certain danger factor.
You also want to look out for how much power the blower can generate on average; some blowers can go up to 145PMH or over 200KMPH.
Another really great thing that you can get is an extendable and bendable hose so you can direct the air flow in multiple directions; it’s convenient but a little more expensive.
How To Attach The Gutter Cleaner
The particular model of weed eater and the extension you got for it will determine how to exchange the parts; read your owner’s manual!
Most weed eaters will simply have a head that can screw off or is clipped off easily and then the lead blower attachment will attach in much the same way as the trimmer head was taken off.
