Gutter Rake Tool Product Review
By: Danny Lipford
Use: Attaches to handle for cleaning gutters
Cost: $9.95 + $6.95 S&H = $16.90 total (handle not included)
Advertisement for the Gutter Rake claim it’s faster and easier to use than other gutter cleaning tools, so I decided to put it to the test to see if it lives up the hype.
The Gutter Rake attaches to a standard extension pole, which is not included with the product but must be purchased separately at a home improvement center or paint store. After attaching the Gutter Rake to the handle, work off a ladder to drag leaves and other debris toward you. Use the hooked end to push the debris under gutter ferrules, then flip the tool over and use the straight end to pull the debris toward you.
While the Gutter Rake did okay in my test, there are other gutter cleaning products on the market that work as well or better, so I only gave it a two out of five star rating.
