    Say the person walking along the path is 6', multiply him by the height you want to reach plus a bit more for standing back from the building to get the angle to clean. I think you need a very long pole :eek:

    That looks akward. I recon you will need to stand in road to get good angle for the top windows. (hope it's not a busy road)

    Not sure about how big a pole u need. Go there with your 47 foot pole and see how hight it reaches. Then u can judge if you need a couple of extentions. If not u may be looking at gardiners extreme range.

    Just noticed that it's on a hill so those dormas on the right are not as high as the others.

    this job looks awkward must say the height is crazy
