    Been experimenting with brushes all this week.

    And at the moment i can see a difference in cleaning speed, earning and fatigue.

    I have changed from a Gardiner Extreme Brush to a Gardiner Sill Brush.

    I have noticed i am rinsing less, cleaning quicker and earning more. I seem to hit the same pain barrier (lower back) I hit the barrier about an hour before i do with the extreme BUT i have actually done more money!

    I have tried a dual trim and that IS too heavy 285g. I have added weights to my sill brush and 225grams with pencil and jets is my cut off. Anything more and i really ache!

    I Am big enough and ugly enough to admit when i am wrong, but i could be wrong on the extreme.

    It looks like it IS a slow brush and its better to use a heavier brush but with more bristles.

    The Saga continues....................

    Using flat trim.

    I stand by the weight tho a 100% my limit really is 225grams been playing with weights all week.

    And yes Mark If we see a tecbuk 225grams then he could be onto a winner.

    225 for stock/bristles/jets and hose !

    If I stop the pain is unbearable.

    At Christmas I had two weeks off. By about the 10th day I couldn't move.

    The more active I am the better.

    But that is what the big picture is. I will hopefully be solely running two companies.
