    Wasn't looking at what section we were in earlier. Posh is right Harris all the way for tradding on a pole its strong not to whippy and easily long enough for seo and floor any higher though I'd go wfp.

    What brand of tools are you using? Different poles come with different end fittings.

    Also, make sure you get an angle adapter on whatever pole you get.

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for your posts, I'm planning on using unger for me tools but the main thing is I wanted to canvas first me thinking I may have 2 or 3 take me up but when almost quarter of who I visited all wanted me there and then.

    I really was blown away but now have to get me gear together, and now crapping it lol.

    I have picked up a lot of shops and a couple of care homes bars etc

    Kit I'm planning to use is unger and a wagtail, but tailing for the higher jobs and trad for what I can reach etc.

    So is this about the speed of a new business then?
