    Hello all I haven't been in the window cleaning business to long I just use a standard traditional kit and ladder and that's how I've kept it but I have been mentioned a few times about reach poles for traditional the big question I ask is is there any type of pole/ system I can use to clean top windows traditionally and properly to get in all corners without having to use a ladder and a scrim to wipe window corners ? As I am looking to avoid use of ladder after a recent fall but am not looking for water fed not my type or range thanks much appreciated

    This is the set up i use if not using wfp
    I fan with it rather than straight pulls but this would get you started
    If you learn to fan with it you don't need the detailing tool that is jubilee clipped to the handle
    I will try and get time to do my own vid later

    It takes some getting used to but persevere and it will be fine
    Get a harris pole from b&q
    Angle crank from wintecs for free postage..unger stainless is my personal favourite..plastic one i am using at the mo but only for the odd job..wouldn't handle constant abuse
    Wagtail from cleaning spot but will be expensive with postage too..worth the money though
    I use a slimline flipper 12" as it is the best to fan with once you get used to it

    Hopefully polzn bladz will get his utube vids back as he is the master of fanning with it on a pole and it's him who advised me to get that set up

    If you are on Facebook.
    Go on this group it shows you many different ways to use fixed or swivel type squeegees.
    By hand or by pole.
