    Hi guys

    Think I found the trolley im looking for based on most compe***ive price of 485. Trolley comes complete with bayersan 25ft pole and brush etcetc.

    Could any experts just run thier eye over the link - its the 30 lit system half way down - and tell me please that this is decent for me to use for tops only and only for 2 story :)

    Thanks

    Hi mate,

    Have just seen & replied to ur PM. My advice is in there. Trolley looks ok yea, but what I suggested would get you started for a lot less. You could get a WCW backpack, collapsable trolley & gardiner CLX 22 (very nice pole) for around £300.

    Just seen that wcw back pack for 120 there on a site - so if trolley is 20 and pole/brush 120 - thats under 300 - now thats what im talkin about.

    Question is - Will it do me for 5 or 6 semis upstairs?? Obviously il have a few containers in car to fill er up ( I do do about 20 semis a day)n so 3 or 4 fill aint a hassle...[hr]
    maybe 25 semi ( 6 hour day sometimes 7)[hr]
    alot of my semi all have 2 tops just too which is cool one dormer at front. top side, skylights at back... I dnt do skylights - never have.... In fact alot of windowcleaner dnt even do bathroom window i believe..

    I can only go on my work, but I'd say you'd easily do the tops of 20-25 semis with 4 25l containers.

    The houses I do have massive front bay windows, even upstairs. I can do 30-odd of those per day using only 4 barrels or less sometimes.

    It's trial & error for the 1st wee bit while you work out the right flow / water saving ratio which is right for you. Some houses (esp 1st cleans) might require more pressure/water, but 95% of the time, my backpack is on just over half of the max flow rate.

    If it's the window cleaning warehouse site, I think you have to add VAT to the £120, still a great buy tho.

    Also, great tip- get the option with the microbore tap attached (there's a drop down option to add this on)- I coil the hose up a couple of times, then cable tie it together so it's sort of in a circle. Then the tap sits right next to my right hip/hand- This will save you tons of water as you turn it on & off between windows. You'll become really efficient at it after a while, just stick with it. If people say they use loads of water, my guess it's because they're not turning on/off between windows.

    Brill Thanks - Do u do tops only or top and bottom?

    A we tip someone told me was to just bend ur hose back to stop water (like u do with garden hose by accident all the time lol) but wasnt sure if this wud eventually wreck hose...

    I've been kinking my pole hose to stop water since I started - never had an issue. Only works with the softer pole hose though. The harder one's like the Gardiners one won't kink - use a tap

    Correct you can do that, but as Matty says, not with a stiffer pole hose- the hose I have would break after 5 mins of doing that. I prefer softer hose, but still wouldn't bend it, asking for problems if you ask me.

    A tap is only a tenner so well worth it.

    The section of work that i was talking about it WFP tops & trad bottoms.
