ta keir for trying it for us !:D i cant afford to spend too much on brushes so the thread is great...assuming i get the right brush out of it....maybe a slight spelling mistake on there ..not that i very good as i have to use chrome spell checker or else i spell just like good old tenchy.

My only mild bug bear with the new extreme range is the splay of the bristles allows the stock to close to the window, so its easy to bang and clang on the frames whereas the original extremes just sit a few mm higher off the glass and therefore you can be a bit more indiscriminate with brushing

Buy the Gardiner Brush Bumper :)

Got one for each of the new style extreme's, took them off within three windows!!

 

Nowt wrong with them as such, just i found them too grippy on the sills as i sweep across.

I know,.... i know well use a sill brush.......yes i have one but i can keep the sills clean with an extreme alot easier than wielding a sill brush about.

Only way i can explain why i prefer not to use the bumpers is lets say its like wearing a rubber johnny compared to riding bare back hahaha

 

Also i am falling in love with the extreme hybrid, its a seriously seriously good brush. I have been highly impressed by its slug trail removal powers today, and on hydrophobic glass you can really feel the semi absorbent bristles gripping the window, and on both phyllic and phobic glass you can really see/feel the chemical type reaction happening where the pure water does its thing.

The tecbuk hybrid will have to be amazing to trump it, but i have to admit that i used it a couple of times the other week and was non plussed by it, but after i trimmed my older brushes and saw/felt the difference i gave the new ones the same treatment, i think this is what has turned it into a kick ass brush.

 

@Tuffers........do you swap brushes regularly? Recently i have been starting with say an extreme medium, but have the hybrid attached to my belt with the jet tubes then swap between as the day goes on. But that could any two brushes that i fancy, i just love swapping and find my favourite brush changes from day to day.

I think i am developing a fetish lmao

@keir, funny you mentioned change of brushes. I have been using the dual trim flocked for a while with pencil jets on maintenance cleans. As it happens, I decided to try another brush today. It was the dual trim medium mixed with swivel neck, yes swivel neck and fan jets. I will be using the same tomorrow :) I may change the fans for pencils though if I get any signs of spotting.

I do find the swivel a PITA for brushing over the sills with though.

Whoever the chap is he bites his nails and has baby young hands... Therefore Sherlock smurf deduces he is in his late 20's early 30's and likes buying new toys. :D

 

I still don't get why that brush stock has not been reduced in length further as still looks longer than needed.:rolleyes:

Thanks for putting those photos up; I do offer a stronger brush nut with a brass thread, used for that type of brush head brush.

 

 

The new Tecbuk brushes are lighter than the super-light brushes that Gardiner sell. The previous were about the same weight of the super-light, around 250g.

 

 

The new Tecbuk brushes are around 195g-210g, with an increased bristle cleaning area of 12%, from the previous Tecbuk brushes. All the brushes still have 7 rows of cleaning bristles and aprox 170 full knots of bristles, (unlike a stapled brush, which has only half knots)

Fans for window cleaning eh tuffers? I cant use em for owt but pvc, it just seems to go everywhere.lol

 

As for the swivel, weird innit personal preference? When i used i fixed resi neck i had to use a sill brush, but with a swivel all i have to do is place an extreme or similar on the sill, twist the pole a tiny bit so the brush kicks out to a slight angle then swipe it across once or twice.

 

Another good reason for this is you can see like a bow wave of water coming off the sill which massively reduces the amount of drip splashage on the sill below onto the glass

Richard update your site bud, i would of bought one ages ago if i'd seen that, that stock looks very similar in dimensions to the extreme even and 195g's is not heavy whatsoever in fact i think thats just about right.

The new extreme's are a tad too lightweight, i preferred the original ones with the thicker stock with the built in scraper, that was useless lol

 

I am really looking forward to trying that bud, have you sent it yet?? Lol :thumbsup:

Keir,

Much easier to add weight to your extreme brush, would be better to have 40g – 50g of more bristles if you do add weight.

 

 

I hope you get on with the brush, the Hybrids are around 210g and the DT Boars Brush are around 195g

As soon as I posted using a swivel, I went out to the van and changed the jets to pencil. I have 2 dual trim medium mixed brushes and one has lots more bristles. Actually, one of them looks like an in between of an extreme and dual trim. Must be an updated version, but I've never noticed before :confused:

Yep I'm with you regarding the Swivel, it should have its own thread! It must be the cheapest thing to buy (£12) that gets the work done faster.

You can buy sill brushes cnc http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/the-super-lite-radius-sill-brush-range-for-full-information-click-link-below.html, but you can usually see any cobwebs left on the glass and just rinse them away. Clean your brush often too. Just a quick flick with the palm of your hand usually gets rid of cr@p.

Also cnc what you will soon realise is that pure water makes cobwebs congeal, so anything that is mixed with a cobweb like dust or feathers or just shite in general seems to get all wrapped up in the cobweb and pulls off or flicks off the brush real easy and leaves the brush clean

Smurf i never saw the originals but that stock looks dinky compared to what i imagined after seeing mark munro's vid, the the stock in that vid looked brick like whereas this one looks quite slimline.
