    Wagtail do their own take on a WFP brush, ( Wagtail jetstream) only using a pad to scrub instead of bristles. Just one of their products.

    OK for cleaning large panes of glass that are flat and butted up to each other but no good for cleaning frames and getting into corners.

    My opinion, don't bother for normal day to day residential work.

    Totally agree. Have one in my arsenal that I use for a couple of monthly commercial contracts and it is super fast. Great for large glass with shallow frames but for smaller glass and standard residential you struggle.

    Its also good for getting into difficult to reach windows that are tucked back. I have one and love it! Best used on large glass panels as you cant really clean frames with this.

    Hi Neil , yes I got one in the end and use it a lot . For first time residential full cleans I use a brush for the dirtiest stuff on frames and top edges then go over the glass with it . Better scrubbing power
