    Looks like a nightmare of a job to do from the ground standing that far back using such a long pole.

    How much did you charge by the way?

    So you would still need to do a hell of a lot of spc jobs like that to recoup the cost of that pole? :Image16:

    The cost of the pole is £840 inc vat.

    £840 / £25 (average job) = 33 jobs. So you are looking at around 16/17 hours and the pole has paid for it self.

    To me that is a sound investment. The wear on the pole is minimal.

    So does the pole not bend at that fully extended length when in use and start rubbing on the roofline/sp frames?
