Scraper for gardiner pole?

Recommended Posts

javatomic

Hey guys, so ive just bought a "Super-Scraper" from gardiner, the type 1 for plastic goosenecks, I noticed it doesn't work well getting things like paint specks and really anything worse than bird crap, has anyone used the type 2 for carbon/aluminium goosenecks and is that good for getting paint off?

 

If not does anyone know of any scrapers I can attach to my gardiner pole (CLX-27) that would work on tougher stuff? thanks :)

I use the scraper good for insect crap and baked on Shiite, no good for paint going need a good sharp steel blade for paint.

I have one of those, tbh I dont think I would use the scrapper on the pole would worry about scratching the window. If possible and not a hard to reach window would use the ladders and scrape by hand.

Even after over 25 years doing this i would be reluctant to use a scraper on a pole

It is too risky imo

 

How you doing @Den?

Hi Rory

 

The Super-Scraper is not really suitable for getting off paint or builders residue from glass. It is advertised for use on heavily soiled glass - which we would class as bird or bee deposits etc.

 

The Type1 and Type2 are exactly the same blade edge just for different goosenecks.

 

Many traditional window cleaning firms sell metal blade scrapers that push-fit on to a standard extension pole. This option may work for you - Unger ErgoTec Scraper 10cm you could then push fit this on to an extension pole such as - Window Cleaning Tools - Ladders and Poles - Extension Poles - Unger OPTILOC Pole 120-900cm - Wintecs Window Cleaning Tools Supplies and Equipment

 

Regards

guess I wont be using that then haha, unfortunately its a second story window on regular house so I cant reach with ladder anyway, my problem is ive got a house due aswell that's got some sort of celetape residue all over the edges of windows, most likely painters or something, hopefully my scraper will do the job but still unsure.
