    Tecbuk brushes not in stock for months now, anyone know if they're still trading or have they gone out of business? Can't get a reply to emails.

    Hi Barry, still trading

    I thought I emailed you back, although it could have easily been a different Barry.


    I sent an email today to another Barry who wanted 2 x Duel trim Boars brushes. The new Boars brushes have come down in weight to 195 grams un-jetted. All the Aerial brush range cleaning bristle area has increased by 12%, with an average reduction in weight of 25%, i.e. the Hybrid brush now weighs 210 grams un-jetted.


    It’s taken longer than expected, because, unlike other wfp brushes available, I don’t remove cleaning bristles just so I can reduce the brushes weight. I have increased the cleaning capacity of the brushes and reduced the weight (easier said than done). Tecbuk brushes were already faster to clean than anything else, now they are quicker still, and lighter as requested by some window cleaners.


    Richard


    (If that isn’t you that I emailed today can you send me an email?)

    The Tecbuk Hybrid brush Tuffers is very popular and still a faster brush than other makes. it’s a genuine Hybrid brush 85% Red Polyester monofilament (non-absorbent) with a 15% Black Boars Hair (absorbent) in the centre of the brush for scrubbing power when you need to use it.

    Yes that was me Richard, I sent a reply. I love your brushes but as I said in the email, the price rise from £34.97 to £45.97 (over 30%) makes the brushes a little too expensive for me. Unfortunately I'm going to have to purchase elsewhere. Thanks anyway.

    No problem Barry, they are more expensive. Depending on which other brushes you compare prices with the difference can be £8 to £12 pounds more expensive.


    If you keep a Tecbuk brush for 6 months, it is going to cost you more each week, depending on the comparison brush the extra cost can be anywhere between £0.35p to as much as £0.45p extra per week.


    I think the extra cost is more than paid for in the brush quality alone, personally. You should recoup the difference in price in a single day working.


    Tecbuk brushes are faster to use than anything else available, and the new version of the Aerial Brush has a 12% increase cleaning area, a decent weight reduction aprox 25% - the un-jetted brushes now weigh in with an average weight of 195 grams to 210 grams.


    There is a huge amount of cheaper brushes available, both lighter or heavier in weight than Tecbuk brushes, but you will never get the bristles count or combination of bristles for the weight and performance of Tecbuk brushes. Gram for gram of weight Tecbuk brushes beats them all for value and performance.


    Best of luck, Richard
