(The other reviewers who used electric leaf blowers for the task scare me. If there is a lot of water sitting in the blocked gutter, you will get a gusher of water out the downspout when the blockage is blown free.)
If your overflowing gutter is blocked someplace other than at the downspout, this device won't solve that problem. My aforementioned problem gutter also tends to accumulate tree debris which forms dams at the gutter nail ferrules. Other means are necessary to deal with that problem. The AIRALEAVE will only blow away what's directly above the downspout opening.
The tighter the fit the leaf blower makes with the conical end of the AIRALEAVE, the better luck you'll have with this device. My leaf blower thankfully came with a round attachment which makes a very snug fit with the AIRALEAVE cone. I'm frankly amazed that another reviewer was able to get this to work with a rectangular wand.
As other reviewers have noted, when using this device, please remember that what goes up (yucky leaves, water, etc. being blown up and out of the downspout) must come down (probably on you as you stand there holding a leaf blower jammed into the end of the AIRALEAVE). A hat, safety glasses, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty are recommended.
As another reviewer noted, it does seem like a lot of money to spend on a piece of molded plastic. But it is a well-made piece of molded plastic, and it has worked for me.
be sure to wear safety glasses and grungy work clothes when using this product. the snowstorm of gutter debris will cover you and you don't want any of that fetid junk in your eyes.
But it seemed rather over-priced for what it is. I went to a big-box home improvement store and, in the gutter department, found an item called the Amerimax 7-1/2" x 3" White Plastic Flex Elbow. Cost a whopping two bucks and, while it is not as heavy-duty as this item, it gets the job done just fine. I'm using the round blower attachment on my blower, and it fits fine with the flex elbow.
But, I'm still giving this 4 stars. Pricy, but if you can't get a cheaper substitute, it will do the trick.
My only concern would be for the person trying to blow out a clogged gutter with water still in them. The water has to go somewhere, and into your leaf blower seems to be where it's headed. potential for a shock for sure.
