    Need to get a 40ft pole bought before next Monday.

    Anyone suggest best one to go for? Needs to be lightweight, cost an issue but not too improtant.

    New commercial job landed - 100 flats to clean in two blocks, hence lightweight so my shoulder doesnt drop off.

    Will have stiff neck at the end of that little job!

    just the pole weights 3kgs! thats with out the brush, pipe, water etc! its to heavy to work with, its ok for the odd 2-3 windows but thats it. i used it for a whle day on 3 and 4 story windows that i have on a commercial property and god di my arms and neck hurt the next morning!

    by the end of the day it took 2 of us to lift it off the floor!!! lol

    would not reccomend it!
