iRobot Looj Gutter Cleaning Robot

irobot_looj.jpgWe were just getting ready to write a post about the new iRobot Looj gutter cleaning robot when we saw that the guys over at The Hardware Aisle have already done the work for us. Since the Looj is such a cool idea, we're going to go ahead and add our two cents about it anyway.

The Looj is a battery operated gutter cleaner that looks sort of like a Constructicon in mid transformation. The idea is that you plop it in one end of your filthy gutters and, using the remote control, you drive it down to the other end, watching as it blasts out all sorts of leaf debris and other accumulated junk.

The Looj is battery operated and takes 15 hours to charge. The average lifespan of the battery is 30-45 minutes or about 250 linear feet of clogged gutters.

For the Looj to fit in a gutter it has to be at least 3-1/4" wide with the braces at least 2-1/4".

The basic Looj kit is about $100. There are other, more expensive kits you can get with holsters and extra batteries and that sort of thing. The kit comparison is here.

As an added note, if you've never been over to the Hardware Aisle, you should go right now. It's the This Old House tool blog and it's one of our daily stops. The guys over there have a good attitude about things and they seem to have a knack for finding some pretty unusual items. Take this steel soap for instance.
