General Pump 24-Ft. Heavy-Duty Aluminum Telescoping Wand - 4000 PSI, Model# DLTG24A
When extended, the pole is so wabily I wasn't able to focus the spray on target. Got awfully heavy after short time of use.

The wand handles that allow for extension of the wand and tightening in place once extended became hard to turn after several uses. Eventually the top handle broke completely after about a year and when the pole was fully extended. The two halves came completely apart and could not be put together again

Was having difficulty reaching the eave peaks of my house without using a 10-foot stepladder. The extending wand eliminated the need to stand on a ladder and makes the job easier and safer.

24-Ft. Heavy-Duty Aluminum Telescoping Wand - 4000
The wand itself works great but, it's way too heavy and awkward to use fully extended even with the free back-belt

Ease of use
This expanding wand makes work so much easier by being able to stand on the ground and not having to fight with moving scaffold or ladders. A real safety plus!!

First & Last time user
I used this product for the first time this weekend. First, I was impressed with the overall quality of the construction and materials used in the manufacture of this wand. However, the belt, which is necessary for use, could be more sturdy. Second, as far as the actual usage of the wand goes, you need the strength of Atlas, the stamina of Sparticus and the body of Adonis. It also helps greatly if you are between 25 & 35 Years of age. If you are like me, a 66 year old retired home owner, this product will kick your butt in relatively short order and having you contiplating reselling your new purchase on Craig's List (like me). I gave a low rating because this product is not for me (66 yrs old). The product itself is worth the money and is built to last. However, if you are in the senior citizen age bracket, your money might be better spent hiring out your house washing chore.

Wand is poorly constructed. Had all three extension tubes come apart. Wand came with no instructions as to size fittings required to attach to my pressure washer. At full extension,24ft, with water in the system, it cannot be lifted from the ground by the average person. At full extension you cannot concentrate the spray to a specific area, you can only hit the general area due to pressure and weight of wand. Comes with support belt that is worthless. Wand fully retracted and empty weighs in excess of 15 pounds. I could have done a better job by renting a lift and using my pressure washer standard wand. Would not recommend this wand.

We use this telescoping wand to clean high and steep slope areas of the roof and it is a real time saver. Great for cleaning gutters without having to move a ladder all around. Excellent product.

Works great on 2 story houses
This product works very well to clean 2 story houses. It is very heavy and hard to control but that is expected with something this long.

Does the job. Not for the frail
Well built, easy to adjust and works well.
The support belt is not great. The shoulder strap would really irritate your neck if you used the thing very long, but the belt is pretty well mandatory to be able to hold it up.
The negatives aren't a result of how it's made, just the nature of something that has such a long reach. It takes some strength to use this, especially at longer extensions. No arguing with physics and gravity.
I bought a rotary wall cleaner attachment as well, which makes the weight even worse.
But in spite of anything that I said that might seem negative, this thing is a tremendous labor saver! I have cleaned my siding three times since we built the house. The first time, I used an extension ladder and a brush with a telescoping handle. It took me several weekend days to get done. The second time, I rented a scissor lift and used a combination of the pressure washer wand and the brush. It was still a chore and cost me $150 to rent the lift and still took me two whole days.
With this wand and the wall cleaner (Item# 157623) i cleaned the whole house in two evenings after work. A little muscle soreness was the only additional cost.
