Anyone else in here using an extension pole for trad work? Why not, if not? I started using one a few weeks ago, and I much prefer using one to using ladders. I'm just using a harris pole from b&q, it cost me £15 and I stuck an unger quick release thing on the top to click squeegees/scrapers & etc on the end. It took me a bit of practise to get the technique down, but it's really good now, and I don't have to carry ladders. Which is a big deal as I don't drive, so all my work has to be walkable to and local. So, it's much easier carrying a harris pole for 20min than a ladder! But aside from that, safety - poles are safe. Also cheaper, and less likely to break something in someone's house vs. trying to carry a ladder through a small terraced house. Views aren't as good, but I reckon the job is as good and I think it's quicker too.. So, any thoughts? Why aren't you using an extension pole to work, what aren't I getting? Why are you on ladders?
