This edition we sent the Moerman Excelerator handle out with Liquidator Channel and the Fliq pad. We sent two to Texas, one to Illinois and another to New Jersey. Here is the feedback.Steve Sarafin (Business Owner) Window Genie Town? NJ
My guys reported that they liked the squeegee for commercial use. Decreased toweling and detailing. Didn't see as much benefit when it came to residential cleanings. A possible improvement is to figure out a way to holster it. It doesn't fit well into current BOAB. They liked the squeegee well enough to try and get me to buy them.Luis Gaytan (Crew Leader) Fish Window Cleaning in Fort Worth Texas-
I liked the angled rubber and the Liquidator Channel. It worked very nicely around the edges and eliminated toweling. The Fliq in my opinion doesn't hold enough water. Possibly making the mop thicker so it could hold more water would make me change my mind. The Excelerator Handle was bulky it's almost as if it does too many things. I also don't think that it will hold up to everyday wear and tear of our staff. I wouldn't be willing to spend my own money on the tool and while I think it a wonderful concept it's not quite what we would be willing to change out our current equipment for.Gerald White (Window Cleaner) Clearly Windows Bloomington IL-
The design of the tool is practical and useful. I primarily used it for route work. It helped speed up my day as I stopped using towels while I used it. The angled channel is by far the highlight of this tool. I would try to get others to purchase this squeegee. In fact I have already.
The only improvement I would make is the Fliq part as it got caught, wouldn't flip right, and at times would get in the way when closing on the window. But overall it's a really good tool and one I recommend.Eric Stewart (Business Owner) Window Genie Killeen TX
The Cons first. The mops flicker action isn’t smooth. It gets caught up in the center when flipping to access the squeegee. The squeegee blade comes off center and moves to left or right and the Excelerator handle is plastic. This may not allow for as long of life as other metal handles especially when dropped. Lastly, Fliq scrubber does not hold a lot of moisture causing the window to dry quicker on hot or windy days.
The Pros. The squeegee saves time and money in the time it takes to switch from mop to squeegee traditionally. It's light weight and less wear on the users forearms and hands but it does take some getting used to but once you grasp it is great. I loved the mobility of handlethat being the ease to change from 10/25/40 degree angles and left/right free motion of the handle.
