    Van and System for sale

    That's a really good van for the money. If anyone is starting out it would be perfect. If it had of been in about 8 months I would of had it myself. Good luck getting it sold.
  3. That does look very beat up. I would try pushing the price down if you really want it. Expect to do a fair amount of repairs and tweaking in the beginning. It won't last forever and thus is not that future proof, but it's a start and you get a bunch of spares and extras with, which is also worth a fair amount. If you intend to continue down the DIY road this is probably ok. You will end up replacing the poles for sure, the couplings and probably the battery in the near future and maybe the tank when you end up wanting a upright model. If you want longevity and stability without tinkering, buy a ready made premium system from a dealership.

    Van and System for sale

    Update: Just removed all decals from the sides and front - I’ve left some on the rear but they can be removed easily enough. Van has had a full cut and polish. I’ve removed the LPG heater - when I checked it over the other day the wiring on the inside of the unit has overheated in the past and looks dangerous, it’s now in the bin!!! The van now has 2 x 110amp batteries. Plenty of juice to run the webasto for a full day. I’ve run the webasto weekly as a preventative maintenance task - it’s still pumping out +40 degrees at the brush head. additional photos now it’s been cleaned!! open to sensible offers - no more comedians please

    Pole Holder Advice

    I did consider taking the liner down but wanted to try side mount options first. Can i ask, what would you use to side mount hangers and how would you go about doing it? Would i have to drill into the metal or is there a way of using the holes currently in van?

    Razor Red Leaving Lines

    I think its because they are red in colour because the black rubber doesn't leave red lines.

    I would take the roof liner down personally, you could use some side mounted hangers though.

    SkyVac Atom - is it too good to be true?

    Yes, buy a Maxblast for £200 and convert it to a side entry for a ton from Spinaclean. Doing a big gutter clear on Monday and the woman wants me to full the gutters with that hedgehog thing. I told her they were **** but didn't have the answer why? Is it to do with blocking up the gutter with debris? Thanks

    Equipment any good for new business

    Thanks for the feedback Iron Giant. The equipment is going for 550£ and I went to take a look today - it comes with a Ecolite Glass Fibre telescopic pole, a 500L flat tank, several heads, some extra poles (roadster andunger high access fwiw) - a resin filter tank and marine battery, also two pumps (both work in one spare). I am curious of how much a new cleaner setup is if purchased new with good quality equipment ? An anyone link me to some possible threads containing any info ? Thanks again all poster helping much appreciated
  11. I would buy a Kiam and convert it to a side entry. Probably cost you circa £500 including side entry conversion
  12. Thanks for the replies. @Part Timer i am on the fence about selling it if i'm honest. I'm proud of what i have built and talking to other window cleaners i know that i've got something that is beyond well priced. My average clean per house also includes my commercial stuff so is a bit off but currently stands at £58.37 per clean. @Iron Giant Not sure of its the holy grail but i am yet to meet a cleaner that has a round this well priced. Some say it's overpriced but i'm not holding a gun to anyones head and i actually tell customers that i'm expensive and that they can get it cheaper but most people round here don't want to roll the dice and end up with hassle. For these prices i have really good communication with my customers and more reliable than anyone else around here. @Jasonwratten Work is mainly Reigate, Redhill & Dorking including surrounding areas.

    SkyVac Atom - is it too good to be true?

    Part timer,i don't have a machine yet,and would consider doing a side entry but the lift on the sky vac industrial is impressive,i cant afford one though.My research is the lift of the atom is 110" the Grippa max102"unsure about the lift of the cheaper vacs that benefit from side entry.
  15. Cosmetic reasons, their customer wouldn't like to see it hanging down so rather than fasten it out of sight along the back edge of the gutter they run it along the gutter. We had 4 separate cables in one gutter in Gosport, that was a nightmare.

    Pole Holder Advice

    Hey guys, just got my van ply done, lined and tank in. I'm looking to make some pole holders and there are some good vids on here but most seem to be hung from the roof. The problem I have vw caddy and roof is covered. There are lots of holes on the sides but I'm sure how I would go about installing some type of pole holder or bracket for poles from the side. I have attached pics of the back of van, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated .

    I wouldn’t bother with the company if there gear wasn’t so brilliant! Not happy with them in my past business, it comes across that they’re a small team.

    SkyVac Atom - is it too good to be true?

    They do it to cause a resistance,so that the dirt wont flow away properly then they can say"of course we look after our local gutter cleaner".

    Proloc or Grippa reel?

    Had my hd power up a couple of years now still in great condition and very fast., very narrow which is a big bonus if you use small van like me, honestly no need for snag protection it does get snagged and just stops like any other reel manual or electric probably going to buy another soon for my son as he currently uses the proloc.

    Gardiner's pole or purefreedom

    Gardiner's pole or purefreedom

    The OVA8 poles do look interesting, especially with the oval sections to stop the spinning. Each section is 200grams, so light as well. My poles (gardiners SLX’s) are due for renewal soon, so I too have a decision to make 🤔
  26. Get a Phantom hi mod pole with Gardiner’s brush ..👌🏻
  27. It's 2 houses an hour, based on an average price of £28.50 per house
