A swiveling/adjustable t-bar scrubber is a must have for me when doing pole work. If the window isn’t a nice square/rectangle window and your using a pole without a swivel t-bar you are going to find it a pain in the ass. Get one- it’s money well spent in my opinion especially for pole work. A swivel squeegee handle like the Ettore ones are the same- money well spent.
interesting, there’s a lot of “cabins” like these getting built in my market. to add to what Nate said, a swivel t-bar is a must have! I keep mine pretty loose, and I use the swivel even by hand- helps with scrubbing and getting into every corner of the glass quickly, imo
Yeah, tons of cabins here. Most are in rental. I’ve landed two contracts with the rental agencies for glass and power washing. One deal is for 25 cabins @ 125.00 per…for just the upper fixed pane glass in and out. Their cleaning crew never touches them I will probably have to vacuum some of the interiors panes. I will have one guy on the outsides with a WFP while I handle the interiors.
Those angled windows on those cabins are going to be fun if your using a pole instead of getting up to them with a ladder. Look into the angle squeegee handles as well. Its the same principle as with the t-bars. It will allow you much more flexibility when dealing with geodesic or angular glass- especially when using a pole, but also like Alex said- “helps with scrubbing and getting into every corner of the glass quickly” and the same goes for a Squeegee handle like this one Ettore Contour Pro + Super Channel Handle this is the “wide-Body” one for the bigger channels like the Slayer and s0rb0 ones but they make them in the regular version too- if you buy one make sure you get the right one for your particular channels.
Don’t count out an angle adapter for your pole. I think they’re even better than swivel handled squeegees for pole work since all it takes is a turn of the pole to change the squeeqee’s angle, not moving your whole body and the pole several feet to one side to turn your path down the window vertical.
Thanks Dan, I have a Ettore universal adapter and I tried getting it to work with my Ettore poles when I first bought it and it wouldn’t work. To be honest, I only gave it a minute and then put it back in the tool box and promptly forgot all about it. So thanks for reminding me about it. I need to dig it out and figure out how it’s supposed to attach;)
