Best bit of equipment you have bought for under £50?


Recommended Posts

Thought this would be a good topic.

 

Is there anything you have bought that's reasonably priced that you now wouldnt be able to do without or wish you had got sooner? Anything to make the job quicker, safer, easier?

 

May help us noobies out!

Ettore contour pro plus handle and the 14" liquidator blade. Saved me lots of time on the glass because i didn't need to detail.

Hose less set up on poles saves so much time 

The exceed hoseless cost me over £100 as i bought the triple pack. The spare one came in handy for using the backpack with the pole. 😉

After 6 years in the job i recently got a ladder stand off (£25) ladder arm to hang a bucket on (£16) and a gutter cleaning attachment (£6) for the end of a pole, cleaning gutters out now takes literally a fraction of the time and is a dream, just wish I got the stuff sooner! 😅

I dont like univalves I bought one it lasted a few months and broke , at £30 a go it would cost me £540 to put them on most of my poles , I prefer to kink the hose , I do  accept we waist a bit of water extending the poles but estimate it’s probably 5-10 ltr per day at worst so no big deal , also it’s something else to go wrong and break .

Not particularly purchases more subscriptions-

Agree with all of the above ladder stand with the V was a great buy

Yeh univalve for me. Spray nozzle from Rutland pumps for £30 as well, use it a fair bit and like it, and should last 10 years?

I use a john guest fitting, so I can change poles easily

Univalve is great bit of kit

That's the reason you need a 1000l tank, wasting pure. Try the univalve again and I'm sure you will be on to a winner. 😉

No thanks it’s not for us , loosing 5-10 ltr per day is neither hear or there and far cheaper than £540 for something that lasted only a few months

Round Tracker v4 PRO. A spreadsheet package based on Microsoft Excel for scheduling, invoicing, expenses etc... A one-off cost of £37 a few years back but now £29. Perhaps a bit "old fashioned" these days but much more efficient than a diary and much cheaper than any of the other scheduling software for which you pay a monthly fee. Ideal for sole traders. Must have saved me £s.

I purchased the lightest Gardiner brush on the market as I was getting repetitive strain and waking up with pins and needles gradually got better and I’m free from any issue now so money well spent for Me.
