    I am pricing a internal office job at the moment as there is a lot of computers and paperwork everywhere some of the walls are 8ft high made of glass with the desk in front so could be a pain to reach so i was thinking at looking at a vikan easyshine kit or the unger internal kit both the same sort of money what is best ? are they any good or just for people like H lol sorry mate

    You have a clx 4?? Well you can buy an adapter for the vikan easy shine so you can connect the head to your clx.. So just buy the head pal.. With the scrubber mop and a few micros, save yourself a few ££...

    ^^ that's what I'm doing... But I need to buy a clx 4!!!

    Never used one mate. I'd say it would be hard work and take longer than with squeegee. Are the windows bad? Is there glass under the desks or they stop above the top?

    I want to get one set up as it would come in handy for some work

    The viking kits are great, but down side to them you need a lot of pads as the get damp and they just marks on the window,

    I use one on a wedding shop, they always got several wedding dresses in the windows and range in price of £1,000 to £7,000 each, works well on them,

    I have a Vikan one mate. Pretty good - I do some factory offices with it that are tall and start at waist height. A right pain to do trad (I used to do them trad until I got the vikan) but yes you need a lot of pads as one only covers approx 10sq metres. Did that job today used 10 pads but took me half the time of squeegee ;)
