From time to time I go on ebay & look at the window cleaning stuff that's going. There's been a couple of Gardiners poles on recently...and what amazes me is how much people will pay for 2nd hand stuff! For example: A used slx-25 with brush went for £294 incl postage...when the guy even said that the cost new from Gardiners was £354. Ok so you've saved £60...but it is 2nd hand. And this you won't believe: A USED SLX-18 with brush just sold for £264 incl postage...when the guy (same seller as the 25) clearly states you can buy it brand new for £266!!!! What the hell are people thinking? He even gives a link the Gardiners site & they still paid as much for a 2nd hand pole rather than get it brand new from the manufacturer! Some people's stupidity is beyond me!
