    Dodger's right. You're up a ladder, parked in the middle of 3 windows. Two right handed and the one on the left, left handed. Saves a lot if time moving the ladder. Now's the time to learn norm :D

    You might find it easier to use a smaller squeegee. Takes a little longer but you'll be earning money.

    :D yip no over reach.
    Small windows ok with left
    But on larger windows today practice find it awkward instead of passing to right hand which I normally do continue with left I am losing reach might have to split window or maybe pole.
    :)its a learning curve I think I will k.i.s.s [keep it simple stupid]:D
    Thanks for all your input and advice guys
