    For a minute there I thought we were going to watch that guy clean all of that garage.
    I can't see this being good for residential work. Shop work yes.

    I've been using one for nearly a month now. With pad mounted top or bottom commercial is excellent although I'd prefer the 18 for that. Fine for most of our domestic over here but if I get a run of smaller glass I strip pad off and use it bare with a scrubber (the pad is a touch heavy for prolonged in hand use) and in this config absolutely sings. I really like it.

    Is it much different to use than a wagtail?

    Different to use? Not really, if you are used to using a Wagtail you'll pick up on this one quickly. It's certainly more refined, very comfortable grip, the pivot is quick, direct and very very smooth. Advantages are the ability to change channels quickly and the built in angle change (10,25 or 40°) is really convenient. I personally don't use the lock function, but it's there for those that would like that convenience. The system to connect pad to channel is excellent and really secure. I like it better than any of my Wags, either standard or modded. It's a very good squeegee.

    Does the rubber skip/twist at all Eric like in the liquidator does sometimes on the turns?

    New clips are a touch more forgiving and do hold most rubbers more snugly. I still think a little bit of retention in the form of Polz paper clip or Hermans zip tie pieces is beneficial but they're so damn fiddly to fit and refit that I tend to 'forget' after turning or changing the rubber :). Light touch, lots of water and slip and as efficient a stroke as possible? Not too many issues at all.

    Yeah I can't be bothered with those zip ties, did it for a couple of days and thought sod this. I think the 10° will be good for closing out.
