    Look good but I can see problems using that on some houses. Let us know how you get on with it.

    that stand off must make the ladder a pain to handle, i use a micro stand off and you notice the diffrence when thats on the ladder and its no where near as big as that

    looks ok - but I might need a wider one . Just trying to figure out the easiest way to clean these windows
    my 3 sec ladder doesn't reach above the window and I can't rest it on the window frame too

    The best way to clean it trad (customer desnt want the reach n wash) - is by using a wide stand-off like the one above
