Invented by Dave Ryden of Ryden Development, Hallock, Minn., the new cleaner consists of a housing that mounts above the chimney opening on top of the house and a weighted brush stored inside the house. A rope is guided from the housing through pulleys to a winch that mounts at ground level.
To operate, you simply close all dampers, then lower the 24-lb. cleaning brush and weight assembly down the chimney. When it reaches bottom, you crank it back up into the housing. Once inside the housing, bottom doors keep all soot and creosote out so cable and guides don't plug up or get frozen in place by ice and snow. The brush housing doubles as a rain cap and down draft control.
Sells for $280.
