    Says who lol

    I use the right size channel for the glass i am cleaning and on some jobs that could be 4 different sizes
    It is the way i work and i work quick
    Why spend ages fanning a patio door with a 10" when you can do it in 2 seconds with a 22" and why use a 12" on a top opener where it only just fits in when you can use a 6" and not need to detail anything
    Each to their own bud

    In the fourteen years I was trad, I never got on with the belt buckets. Found them cumbersome and unnecessary. I had a hammer hoop on my belt that held my squeegee, then I would soak my applicator in the bucket, whizz up the ladder, soap up the glass and rest it on the sill, or if no sill, balance it on top of the A frame.
    Because of the weight of the applicator and the water in the belt bucket, this made the belt much lighter. Each to their own etc etc

    I am ordering a few bits and bobs right now
    When they turn up i will have 2x10" liquidator
    A 14", 18", 22" liquidator all with the moerman adjustable handle
    A 5.5" ish made from a prototype liquidator
    And several sizes of hand modded ss channels cut to specific sizes for specific jobs
    Some says that's mental but i do like the right tool for the right job
    Oh and hopefully a 14" combinator to play with
