Anyone used one. Is it any good. Heard it washes and squeegees in one movement
They are getting quite well known now. I bought one last year - £32.00!!, and although I can use it, I can't get a good enough edge with it, even though I have dog-eared the channel. I found that it was too light, and quite inferior in quality considering it is for commercial use. I have made my own similar tool using a standard brass sqeegee, and it works much better.
I thought of making one but don't know where to start lol
This review might help?
I've just realised, watching the video, that mine is not the 'swoop', it is the 'whirlwind'. The system the swoop uses is not a very satisfactory way of doing things. Have you seen window cleaners washing windows by holding the applicator just in front of the squeegee, and then moving along the glass to get a wash'n'wipe in one go? well that's what the swoop is doing, it's not very good on dirty windows, if you have to scrub them, more for shops etc.
I've just attched a wash pad to the channel (there are easy ways to do it, but they don't last long, mine is 'tough'). I keep saying that I'm going to make a video about this, but have had some problems with that. Maybe when this cold snap has gone, I might do something about it.
Yeah I've read some reviews & there not that good. Would love to see a video. Have tried that applicator in front of the squeegee but get in a bit of a muddle lol
ive got a whirl wind couldn't get on with it cheaply made the ettore backflip is good thow its not done in one action but it saves swapping from applicator to blade each time
Applicator in one hand,scrub ,squeegee of with nice size good old Unger.Done in seconds no scrim on window,all clear no smear.
Been doing this since 14 now 34 so think I've cracked.
I wouldn't recommend mucking about with all in one tool.RUBBISH.!
That's probably because you haven't tried it.
