Wagtail Pivot Pc Squeegee


Ackroyd_82

Recommended Posts

Just ordered one of these from window cleaning warehouse. Its just a squeegee with the pivot control action. It doesn't have an applicator attached like the others.

Has anyone else got one of these, if so what do you think of it?

 

Bought it to just do domestic windows as I thought it would be easier. Could take some getting used to.

Let me know your thoughts. It has holes where you can insert plugs to minimise the pivot action.

 

I tried it tonight and it worked well with the rubber provided. When I changed it to my ettore rubbers, it left a rainbow type haze every time you turned the blade.

When I put the wagtail rubber into my normal squeegee, the same type of haze appeared again no matter how much pressure I put on. Weird!

Been using Wagtails for about a year now. Got various sizes from 10" to 30", I also use the Wagtail Applicator.

 

You won't need the plugs, you can even straight-pull with Wagtail.....it's all in the wrist action for control.

The secret is........practice, practice and more practice......you'll soon get the hang of it.

 

If you're going to do pole work, get yourself the 'Wagtail Angle Arm', seems to 'Fan' easier using this for pole-work. It's also handy for a bit of extra reach when blading by hand.

Typical it's raining this morning so still waiting to try it out.

 

Do you use the red wagtail rubber or something else? I just did my own windows and found that when I replaced the red rubber for ettore, it didn't work very well at all. Maybe the rubber is too soft? It was leaving a rainbow type haze every time I turned.

As soon as the red rubber went back in, no problems.

The Wagtail Rubber is hard. Once the original rubber wore out, I never replaced With Wagtail Rubber......too expensive for me.

 

I've used Unger Hard and Soft Rubbers with no problems.

 

I am now using FaceLift RAZRblade Red Rubber from WCW......
