Clx 4



Recommended Posts

Pjj

I have one that I was given years ago , I use it to wash the van , depending on height it would be ok for bungalows but we use an 18 foot pole for them as that’s our everyday pole and some are dormer bungalows, and some on slopes so a shorter pole wouldn’t reach

When my CLX18 dies I'll be keeping the top section to use for bungalows, might cut a few feet of it as well

Yeah, I've got a phoenix MK2 30ft which I use everyday I'm out. I've also a facelift renegade 20 ft pole but it's quite heavy so isn't used as much. I'm just thinking of getting something a bit lighter but yeah, it's maybe a bit too small

Thinking of getting a clx 4 for doing bungalows. Does anyone on here use one and would it be worth the investment?

I’ve just got a clx 4 from gardiners, not used it yet but  good impressions on the little chap, bought mainly for bungalows, where my bigger slx keeps catching the wall behind me up tight allies, pretty cheap & always good to have onboard.

That's what I'm thinking too. would always be handy to have for tight spaces and if it saves the arms a wee bit throughout the day I'm all for it.i just wonder if it's a bit too small

Probably won’t be any good for anything above ground floor, but certainly think it will have its uses 👍

I have the 10ft for bungalows. My old boss had the 4ft, I actually found it too small for some bungalows. If there’s a simple hedge in front of the windows it can be a struggle. And some bungalows I have the windows are a bit higher then normal, I don’t think the 4ft would reach them. I find the 10ft perfect. Imo

I brought a clx4 about 2 years ago and it hasn’t been out the van in about a year. It’s so small and light it’s like cleaning with a twiglet and you seem to move your arms and body a lot more than with a longer pole to cover the entire window. I do 4 bungalows in a row in one street and still use my slx18 as the hassle of changing poles and brush heads just doesn’t seem worth it just to change back afterwards. Wish I’d saved myself £40 but just my opinion

I've got a CLX4 too but I use mine for cleaning my van and car.my normal extreme 25 is ok for bungalows.

If I were you I'd buy the CLX10 if your planning on using it on bungalows.the 4footer will be too short...

I've got the 4' and I don't even bother with it. It just sits in the garage.

Personally, I would get the 10'.

I've got one and I love it.

Great for bungalows, especially those windows down the side where there's not much room.

I also use it on houses, slx25 for first floor clx4 for ground floor, it means I can leave the 25 extended.

My hands end up black if I'm forever adjusting it for up and down.

It's no hassle using two poles, try it!!

I’m a 3 pole man: 10ft, 18xtreme & 27Smax. But Maybe my ex girlfriend was right, there is something unusual about me ? Lol

I bought one for the same reason. Most brushes are heavier than the pole. Can't imagine scrubbing some baked on bird strikes, poor thing would snap I reckon! My boy has started coming out with me when I work a Saturday, he uses it on the downstairs frames while I clean upstairs, means I can clean the downstairs a lot quicker... So fragile though!

I have got the clx4. I bought it for bungalows. I have the universal brush on?? The white and blue Gardiners. Like has been said the brush is heavier than the pole, it's quite a sturdy little brush, I like it. Especially for down those narrow gaps of conny's. But when I bought it, he advised the clx10. I went with what I thought, if I was buying again, I would choose the 10. Just a little extra reach.

I have extreme 18 my son uses Slx18 but we always have slx22 and clx4 permanently on the van as a backup and for the odd three storey windowWe only put the bigger poles on as and when we know we will need them. 

 

Why use bigger poles when not needed.

 

today I had 5 bungalows 4 of them was the last 4 jobs of the day clx4 perfect and one house where the 22 was needed for 3 windows so used the that pole just for whole house.

Glad I had my 18’ pole for the rest less effort and less fatigue can understand people on a budget who can only afford onepole but if you can afford serveral poles then get them. 

Somedays I have to use 45’ pole but because it covers just about all my work doesn’t mean I want to use it everyday.

Some may think that. But I don’t waste anytime thinking about which pole to use. 95% of my jobs I know off by heart while which pole is needed for which windows while I’m backing up the drive.

 

And personally i find I actually work a little quicker when I have a short & light pole in my hands when doing the downstairs.

 

But quite straight formula for me:

clx 10-for bungalows with no loft window

xtreme 18- for your average town house 

27ft SuperM- for the upstairs of any houses with windows above large conservatory’s, high skylights etc, then a few seconds swapping over to 10ft for the downstairs.

 

But everyone’s different, I find this is the best way for me 👍
