    So 2 local places wanted 40$ for the brush rod kit, then 10$ for a head.

    I am failing at Google apparently. Seems like it should be cheaper, but I may be wrong.

    I have about 10-11 feet of 3" venting.

    Any suggestions/links? I do want to do the leaf blower trick, but at -20, call me lazy.

    Thanks,
    Moe

    Thanks everyone, I saw the lint eater, and was skeptical, I will give it a go.

    I bought the head and one extension, and then used 1/4 steel rods with a coupling. The brush screws in one end of the coupling the rod the other. It was much cheaper the two rods I used were only a couple bucks the couplings were probably under $1 a piece. I have a 8 ft to clean out and the pipe comes out of my house at about 7ft so I have a reach, its worked well.

    I'm going to go with a lint eater, it seems like it would be more then enough, as I don't plan on ever letting the vent get any extreme build up inside.

    Also, my dryer vent probably can use a cleaning.
