Just remember that there is no such thing as ladder free domestic gutter cleaning, if the roof tiles stick out too far for you to get the nozzle into the gutter or you knock an end cap off you will need to get the ladders out to fix it.
Unless its comercial work then I would stick to windows, less faff.
But itís rare, in three years over hundreds of jobs, only six times (I can actually count it) have the ladders come out. That said, if youíve got plenty of window cleaning customers I agree, stick to windows.

You mean its rare for you, I was having to get the ladders out on every second or third job because of not being  able to get the nozzle into the gutter, the moulded aluminium gutters that screw flat to the fascia tend to be the worst.

Agree with 8 wky - itís very rare for ladders to be used - maybe twice for end caps most tiles will push back up into place with the gutter vac nozzle no problem - thatís if your using an aluminium bend and not those silly rubber silicone ones - not all gutter vacs are equal

Weíve had the omnivac for 8 years now

Also have one by gutter sucker which I picked up second hand - I upgraded it to 2Ē poles so both vacs take all the same fittings

Iím quite happy using ladders. We have a gutter vac but as mentioned before, theyíre useless when the slates come over the gutter. Or you need to remove the swan neck to clear debris, which is often the case.

Correct Dry Clean tiles on some are a nightmare they look accessible but they are not when always when you use a gutter vac I have had this problem.

I donít understand why anyone would want his risk assessment any way they are easy to do , and most jobs will use the same format with slight variations anyone can easily make up there own , generally itís only large commercial jobs that will ask for one and I doubt most who have asked for it are doing that type of work anyway, or got the kit to do the job , if doing domestic unless you are an employer you donít really need one
