    Hi guys looking at buying the slx11 full carbon fibre pole slx 47 ft. Are these any good. Pros and cons please. Also which brush is best for a huge height and geting into stubborn bits of bird sh*t. Also what size brush adapter.

    Would buying the heat proof hose for this stop the hose kinking in the summer heat? I don't have a hot water system but when working at 45 ft I don't want hose knotting up on me.


    Thanks guys

    The SLX47 is a good pole for working at height where a compact closed length pole is required - perhaps to fit in a short van - as it is no longer when closed than an SLX25.

    However the Super-Max 45 or 50 are a better pole for working at height with a reduced diameter handle and better rigidity.

    Any of the Super-Lite brushes would be suitable for working at this height, although the Xtreme range would be the least strain. If wanting to get off stubborn baked on residue at this height then I would recommend adding the Super-Scraper to the gooseneck - http://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/al...-attachments/the-new-super-scraper-trade.html

    The PU Hot Hose if used with cold water, is a very difficult type of hose to work with and would probably cause you more issues.

    It will be slightly easier to hold - which in turn will give you greater control and less hand fatigue.
