    Hi guys,

    What is the difference? They seem to so the exact same thing? Wagger has a video on the combi and it looks the same as the slimline? But the wagtail website states that the combi wets the window whilst squeegee-ing? It doesn't appear to do that on waggers video?

    Do they both flip for scrubbing and then work the same for squeegee-ing?

    Confused!!!

    hey jake i think with the combi you can change the scrubber to use as a one pass tool cleaning wile squeeging or flipper
    wile slimline just flipper
    dont think the one pass tool is practical to use on any windows with much dirt as your not scrubbing the window but cleaning and squeegee in one go

    Thanks for that!

    So it seems like the slimline is the one to go for?

    I need one as I have an awkward internal clean to do once a week for a restaraunt! It needs a pole and wagtail to do it, so I'm just trying to work out which one to get...

    For internals I use Wagtail Slimline with the pad 'ON'....just wet the pad/window with a hand-held sprayer.

    For the externals, I still use the Wagtail Slimline but with pad 'OFF'......as I then use the Wagtail Applicator.

    Think said this on another forum.
    Why doesn't Mr Wagtail make a page explaining the different Wagtail squeegees.:rolleyes:
    They are constantly bring out different wagtails no wonder people are confused.:eek:
    So if some one wants to suggest this to Mr Wagtail then everyone will know what they are looking for.;)
    TOO EASY:)
