    not tried the goosey neck so no comment..

    tis a pain though having to drag back the pole when you realise the brush angle is wrong...

    well okay..cheapie carries on regardless sometimes..

    but thats cheapie for you a lazy barsteward..:rofl:

    yeh hoping this post will enlighten old cheapie as to what a goosey neck actually is...I mean does it flex....hmmm ya live and learn on here...

    I have to say daveyboy1 - I hate doing facias wfp, takes ages!

    You might find it quicker by hand, I do... Or I use pressure washer...

    Problem with wfp on fascias is you use loads and loads of water and it takes ages to rinse when facias are really dirty, plus I find more dirt creeps out from behind the gutter as you go which is REALLY annoying! Plus it's very hard to clean the soffits underneath as wfp'ing at that angle is hard work...

    I think ladder and cloths is easier and quicker...

    Be interesting how you find it!
