  • Patent number: 4114938
    Abstract: A device for removing leaves and debris from gutters which may be operated from a ground position includes an elongated pole and a pair of selectively retractible gripping arms pivotally attached to the upper end. The gripping arms or blades are of a blade-like, rectangular configuration having at least one serrated grasping edge. The arms are selectively moved from an opened to a closed position by means of a control device activated by the operator at the lower end of the pole. Further, the angle at which the gripping arms depend from the elongated pole is generally acute or less than perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the pole. Such angle is adjustable to facilitate reaching the gripping arms into gutters of various heights and configurations.
