    :D I havent used it yet [lazy get] but ya have to modify it to fit a wag tail.
    will use it first on normal applicator but can say that it will be far superior for dirtier windows bird **** etc. not being able to use a scraper on the ground this bad boy will sort it

    I remember reading a while back some guy saying he used the same scrim all day I get on a good day four houses outta scrim that's bog standard council houses and it depends what typeof day it is, I thought I must be doing something wrong as after a six hour shift I have enough scrims,cloths towels for a full load in the washing machine. But now I think the guy must have been bullshitting
