    In principle it seems a more ergonomic way to reel in/out hoses but I have a few concerns too.

    Fitting - To fit you need to drill holes in the near side and floor of the van
    Side loading door - once fitted would the side loading door still be able to function properly?
    Pump switch - being on the outside what's to stop anyone messing with it?
    Poles security - what is to stop someone nicking the poles?
    Price - on ebay a single reel kit that you have to fit yourself they want £1345

    Good design but personally I'm not a fan of inserting holes into the side of your van panel as it then makes it difficult to sell the van to other trades unless you sell it as a window cleaning van. Just my views but well engineered.

    Poles......probably the most expensive element of your kit........stored on the outside of the van??
    Not for me thanks, there has to be an easier ( and cheaper ) solution.

    Very nice, hellishly expensive, you could buy a full set up with poles etc for the same price.
    Reckon its gonna be like plasma tv's.......in 4 years something similar will be £150
