  • Patent number: 4930824
    Abstract: A gutter cleaner for remotely cleaning an overhead gutter or the like which includes an elongate handle, a pair of cooperating fork-like jaws mounted at the upper end of the handle, and a sleeve slidably mounted on the lower end of the handle for selectively opening and closing the fork-like jaws. The jaws include a stationary first jaw and a relatively pivotably movable second jaw which each have a greater width than height so that the jaws may be placed in a gutter extending in a direction lengthwise with the gutter. In this manner a substantial length of the gutter may be cleaned of collected debris with each application of the gutter cleaner thereto.
