    I have just bought a SLX-35 with a medium mixed dual trim brush.

    After using a vikan brush for the last three years (not the same one of course) I am very impressed with the ease this combination cleans with, and more importantly, this seems to make the jobs faster.

    The 35 is perfect for the high work having replaced my CLX-27, but a little cumbersome for low level work.
    The trouble is I now hate my vikan brush and 22' pole (Phoenix Hybrid) set up, as it feels like hard work and was considering getting myself the SLX-18. So between the 18 and 35 I'd have everything covered. Is the 18 suitable for most domestic properties? I'm thinking that it will be light and therefore quick to use.

    I love mine, as above it reaches stuff I'd assumed it wouldn't.

    18' would struggle to reach over a conny head on, surely?

    Ah, but he has a 35 footer too.

    SP cleaning, I understand the thought of a 18ft pole when you have the bigger one. I have a SLX-30 with an extension so equiv of your SLX-35. I have also been thinking of a 18ft pole for the majority of simple 2 storey work, then bring out the bigger pole on the jobs it's needed.

    We are thinking along the same lines WWC. I think the two poles would be a great combination and would make for an efficient working day.

    I have a 22' and I feel like there would be too many windows (eg. over conny roofs) where i would have to grab my longer one had i bought an 18'. I was considering getting an 18', but the collapsed length is the same (very compact) and the weight difference is minimal.
