Why I asked is that it kicks like a mule and can be a nightmare to control... If you get one practice where no one can see you or you may make a fool of youself like I did :D

not really : )

 

what do you thing about jet washing a roof using a telescopic lance from the ground ? a 30* angle can be created using a swivel nozzle - so water won't get under the tiles the bad point is that all dirt is gonna be blown in the face ?! lol

I've already tried it but using a gutter bend with my crappy 7.5m fully extended. Now that was rather fun to say the least as I spent more time dancing around the garden waving an uncontrolable pole about than trying to get the moss off the bungalow roof :laugh:

Onmi tends to do a lot of work in and around in London were they are based and look at ways to get jobs done then make it themselves. Hence why they started selling stuff as well. That was probably a couple of demo sections they were doing for a client so was going to leave it like that as you do just so to win the contract. :D

Looks ok on flat american style shingle ground floor roofs but I wouldn't like to try that method on 2 storey buildings over here. The type of uk tiles would also be a problem for the wheels & space you would need to use that I could see it being a nightmare even doing bungalows let alone 2 storey roofs. Most gutter clearing jobs I do the amount of broken mortar I can see on ridges & roof valleys not to mention slipped & broken tiles you would need a roofer to sort that out too.:rolleyes:
