    No showing off gents, but how long is your pole?

    And how long does it need to be to reach a third story window? I am terrible at judging height and have a 3 story house to quote tomorrow and as I was just about to order my WFP kit this week be handy to know how long my pole needs to be :p

    Only do trad mate but my 8.5 metre ladders are more than big enough to do gutters on a 3 storey
    times that by 3.3 to work it out in feet but that would be more than long enough

    About that I would think..smurf would know..lol
    Better to be slightly over than under ..gives you room to stand back a bit
    My ladders are 8.42 metre so not much difference from 8.5
