Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sidicas Gives up too easily
The Looj gives up too easily! 99% of the time it will think that it is hopelessly stuck when it is not. When it thinks it is stuck, it goes into "red mode" where it will not respond to the remote control at all! You cannot tell it to move and you cannot tell it to clean. You have to go and fetch it yourself and hit the power button on the side of the Looj unit make it reset. Ultimately you end up going into full manual mode where you basically double-click the forward button and hold it down until the remote control blinks yellow. When it blinks yellow it means that the Looj has run into more debris than it can handle. Let go and wait a couple seconds. Then put it in reverse for a few seconds. If you don't get any yellow then switch back to forward and repeat. If you get a yellow blink on the remote control, it's very important to stop sending commands to the robot. Otherwise you could risk it going into "red mode" and then you'll have to go and fetch it. Pressing the "clean" button is a sure way to get your Looj to go into "red mode" so I never use it and I drive the Looj manually from the remote. Which means sitting there baby-sitting the robot while it cleans. In my opinion, it's a serious software problem... A robot should never just go into a mode where it decides to completely ignore the remote control. Very annoying.. Overall, it's still better than cleaning gutters manually. It just takes a bit of learning how to operate it well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by abcreview Wanted to be a fan....
I never write reviews, even though I do rely on them quite a bit before I buy something online. I this case I felt like I should pay it forward. Bottom line was that I did a lot of research. I knew going in that it was a gamble on whether or not it would work....and it didn't. Not even close. In my case, my gutters are pretty wide open but they are angled and do have a small lip/reveal. My leaves were bone dry and the looj just drove right through. It punched a hole and flapped around but didn't eject. Instead, it just mounded up. The gutters were full in the area I tested, but I had cleaned it by hand 3 weeks prior - so it is not like it was packed. I played around with it for about 30 minutes on a 10 foot section. I had bought the accessory kit and none of the flappers were any bigger than the one that came stock. I gave it a 50/50 chance in my mind prior to purchasing but knew HD had a good return policy...this one is definitely going back. Had really high hopes, because I hate cleaning the gutters.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by :-( Did not work for us so we returned it.
The reason for the purchase was to eliminate having to climb up and down a ladder and move it all around the house. We had to stand on the ladder the entire time to watch the Looj was in the gutter in case it flipped over or flipped out of the gutter or just stopped after getting stuck and It had a difficult time cleaning leaves out of a wet gutter. I was able to clean six feet of gutter with the Looj in the time it took my husband to clean all the gutters around the house (over 300 feet) The Looj did not save us time or hard work with moving the ladder. The customer service was exceptional when I called to return the Looj. We have a Roomba 880 and LOVE it. Highly recommend the Roomba!

The guy who is complaining about the handle getting in the way should read the instructions! You are supposed to remove the handle before sending it down the gutter! LOL!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy The Cleaner Loog 330 Worked as advertised
I have a cottage that has about 350 lin feet of eavestrough. Have a lot of trees that drop leaves. Havent cleaned trough in a couple of years. The Loog 330 did what it was suppose to do. Was quite suprised of its ability. When the unit works hard, battery life is shorter than mentioned in specs... I would suggest a stronger battery. All in all the Loog 330 accomplished every thing i anticipated.

Used this on our rental properties. Found the gutter filled with two to three inches of dirt. Wet dirt. tied a clothes line to the end and took my time. It took it all out in about 15 minutes on a 40 foot gutter. Once or twice seen it suck down a 16" plant and I would stop it and drag it back and remove it. Then send it down to finish.
