Unger OptiLoc Pole
Posted by matt (matt), 24 March 2004Ive just been looking around and it seems the Unger OptiLoc Pole will only go up to 27 ft
thats the 3 section 300cm / 27 ft
i thought they came with more sections, five i thought ?? ?? ??
Today we cleaned a house of fascia and soffits, (they have asked us a fair few times and 2 others want it done aswell in the same street, no probs i thought, so took a 10 ft poles, and a 8 ft Van cleaning pole/brush, its a hoselock and the water runs up the middle, i gaffa taped them together and it was great on the porch etc, then we tried to clean the Barge board (the bit that runs up to the appex of the roof, so of course 3 storeys high) i was on my double set of ladders, full stretch and using this pole set up
we have 2 others to do, so i thought i would get a unger pole
Posted by Silly_Philly (Philip Hanson), 24 March 2004It does go up to 5 sections, but personally I would not recommend it. It boings around so much you feel like a circus performer. Get a fibre glass pole, theyre not much more expensive and are MUCH easier to use - especially the quick-release mechanisms.

Done that. No more thank you! Now have a 30ft fibre glass pole.
