Which do you prefer pros and cons please for both
Clx for price, good pole and good value for money.
Slx, lighter and stiffer, still good value.
Both will stand up to daily use over a decent period of time.
To be honest, even for a "partly" established WFP operator I cannot see the logic of considering a CLX over an SLX. The SLX wins hands down on all counts and let's be honest, in the greater scheme of things, for the relatively small price difference it's a no brainer and that difference in initial cost will be paid back a hundred times over by the advantages of the full carbon option. Having been wfp almost Eleven years and having used both the best and worst in poles this industry has to offer, it's the way I see things. Work smart and don't handicap yourself for the sake of a few quid.
Thanks for this post I have just brought a van today and getting ready to take the plunge and I was going to ask the same question. What size pole will I need to reach the dormer window in this type of house there's loads of them in my area and I'm a bit unsure what size pole to order.
a 25 / 27 ,you would have to stand back from property then just lower pole coming down,
i do similar houses with a 27, still lots of pole left .
im considering getting a carbon pole also.
which supplier im not sure yet, id like a 35 / 40 footer in case i needed it . just take a section off untill i needed it.
cant quote higher jobs as i havent the ammo.
Thanks mate I was hopping the 22ft Gardiner would do the job what type of pole do you use and do you find it whippy at that height
I would suggest an SLX 25ft.
you could always use a 22 with a added section. a 22 may just reach at stretch. you could always stand on a 25 litre drum, make sure its got water in to stabilise it. or step stool, untill you get enough to get an extra pole section to make it larger.
all depends on your budget, you can always get it on visa, pay for it in a month no interest .
having the tools will make sure you have the ammo to do these houses..
clx / slx ,
clx 27 @£190+
slx 25 @£280+
but with these poles you have everything added on to get you cleaning. just make sure you get right f hose fitting when ordering
Been debating this for weeks myseld. I really cant afford an slx yet and been thinking clx22. But today I saw another cleaner using one and looked as whippy as my harris.
