EttoreWritten by Luke Stenner AKA Luke the Window Cleaner
I started using the Ettore super channel 9 years ago. I purchased a 36 in and found out quickly as a new window cleaner I didn't have the skill for that long of a channel. I cut the channel into two sizes that being an 18 in channel and a 16 in channel. I used these for years and always assumed that the Ettore 18 in was just the same design. Once I started posting YouTube videos on our channel other window cleaners started commenting and asking how we could use the Ettore super channels specifically the 18 in. I thought it was strange that everybody had complaints with this specific channel so one day I decided to order an 18 in and see if there was a difference. To my surprise the 18 in had a wider profile than the longer lengths. I found that the 18 in at the time would skip and jump on certain panes as where the longer slimmer design wouldn't. So, I made a few videos addressing this issue and how we cut down the longer channels to use as 18 in.
