    I'm new to the game lads as you all well know.

    When I get into things I want to use the 60ft pole, so I can do some lanky jobs. Just wondering if there's a certain technique to erecting a 60ft pole cuz **** the bed that's some distance

    It depends on lots of things. I walk the pole up the glass if possible.

    Look out for wind. I got caught out. Not nice!!

    I'll ask the mrs as shes quite good at erecting long poles.....

    Rest the brush head on the side of the building wall and extend by moving backwards if possible.
    Once extended a couple of sections move the brush head higher up the wall and then do it again.
    I find its easier to control and less strain
    (dont know if that makes sense)!!
