Recommended Posts

slipknot

After the partners van packing up, realising he is getting a tad old now aka 70 this month and since i do all the tops i think its time to build a wfp trolly. the ppm near me is super low i hope it stays that way after i move house shortly.

 

but was wondering which are the best poles to buy ?, also i do mainly 2 story houses how many feet of pole would be ideal for a 2 story house ?

I just started but I've been helping others working with wfp, I found gardiners poles the most effective, I have mainly 2 storey as well but I bought the CLX 22 so I can reach above conservatories too

does the CLX 22 cater for all your needs ? and do you use fan or pencil jets ?

The clx is a bit whippy

I would go for the slx 22 plus it is lighter

Smaller closed length than a 25 which makes a difference on bottoms in tight spaces

If you start to do townhouses or houses with the dormer windows in the roof then it will just about reach at a stretch

If you start to take on work with velux in the roof etc then an extension isn't too expensive and quick to swap on and off when needed due to the way gardiner adjustable goosenecks just pull out the end..release the hose and pull out..add extension..put hose back in from the bottom..takes 30 seconds

As you are going to have it a long time the SL-X22 has my vote

I would go slx 25 ok its long in length

it will cover all your work

22ft great pole nice and short handy for tight spaces,but anything slightly high your fuked unless you add extension

I carry a SLX - 18 for standard houses and a SLX - 35 for everything larger. The combination works well.

 

In the other van we have a SLX - 25.

Pure water is the way forwards! Lots of good poles out there, as others said Gardiners are great but also Ionics grafter for tight spaces

I would also recommend an SLX. Don't cheap out and go for the 18 like I did. I quickly found out that it wasn't long enough and ended up buying two extensions.
