a fellow windie gave me this combo in the photo. he couldnt get along with it.

 

wag.jpg.5bb8f52a68688293c30cdf19bd046465.jpg my question is ,when using it as a 1 pass tool, what way round do you think the pad should be ?

iv only used it so far as a 2 pass tool, where the pad flips up for the scrub pass and then dangles down for the squeegee pass

To be honest Boar, I think its a piece of ****. Whichever way I used the pad it just never seemed as good as a tbar. Now I just use the squeegee portion for awkward windows but that's it. Its a shame as it could be great, but the design is just a bit poor. Just my opinion, others may disagree.

gave it a bit of a go today , what i really want is to be able to use it as a 1 pass tool , i havnt worked out yet where the pad sits for one pass use. one thing that i really like on this tool compared to the usual wagtails is that the handle sits above the channel rather than below -closing out is easier than usual as is fanning Photo-0015.jpg.47f39a8e11afaa3759e10960a6ece4ab.jpg

I think the one pass thing you are thinking of is a different version of the wagtail mate. This one just flips up so save time between pad and squeegee. You mention the closing out, be very careful with that tool as the aluminium channel catches very easily and makes a horrible grinding sound-I never scratched any glass with it, but it would be enough to get a custy worried.

iv been using the regular wagtails for a long time. i once scratched a window when i used the end of the metal channel to lift off a piece of poop , so i do know now that the aluminium scratches glass easily
