Old home made poles


#1

We made these a couple of years ago from Mr long Arm and a winspray parts. They dont see much use anymore.


#2

They where probably the only thing you could use then and I bet you were pleased with the achievement, I made a 46ft Unger by adapting it. Boy was that a monster to control but it got me to the top of the job :slight_smile: The difference with c/f modular poles is totally amazing.


#3

Oh I know… its pretty amazing… 3-4 years ago these were cool. Ill probably keep them forever… but never use them again.

I liked the detail “Duke” put into the Harris painters pole over on the WFP academy:

Never used a WFP, so excuse the dumb question.

Is a WFP worth without pure water?
Maybe could be used for pole work to remove excessive dirt before mop/scrub the window ? I don’t know, just throwing it out there.

Here in Houston where you have to go to get DI water tanks ?

I’m trying to understand it to it’s full potential, and I kinda get it, but there’s no way around it when it comes to the first deep cleaning right?

I see my business using it in commercial, after the first cleaning has been performed, but I have no idea on how to price that comparing it to the traditional method. Probably by the hour makes more sense.

Take it easy you guys.
Bye

Price it as you would using your standard methods.

You are pricing a specific service at a specific price. If you purchase a(n expensive) tool to reduce your labor, you are providing the same service.

I’ll take a look at that, thanks Larry.

[B]No not really unless your getting ultra pure water from the tap.[/B]

[B]We have DI tanks For Sale here. It is usually cheapest to get them recharged locally… being in Houston that shouldn’t be a problem…

If it is a problem we can handle that to here.[/B]

[B]Usually we will not use it on first deep cleans.[/B]

[B]Price it just like you were going to do the windows by hand. Your investing your money in the technology so you can save time and money in the long run.

And the link Larry Perfection Llaczko posted is great. [/B][URL=“http://www.windowcleaner.com/vBulletin/member.php5?u=10”]
