    hi few months ago i bought a HA31 Hydra Aluminium Pole second hand off here,

    been sitting in my garage the last few months so thought i would put it to some use,

    first its 7 sections and only wanted to for everyday work so tuc 2 sections of it,

    now 5 sections, new brush, new hose, more then capable of doing 3 story new houses,

    so today was my first day using it,

    well first thing i will say is it was so so so light,,,,,,,

    very ridged,

    clips worked well,

    very happy with this pole,

    dont understand if people want light poles why they dont go for an aluminium as there so cheap, think its about £90 for 25 f

    According to code of pole

    "31ft only 3.3Kg"

    As per brodex site, thats just pole though!

    for straight up work they are fine used mine for 2 years.

    but as soon as you get awkward angles and over conservatories they are far too heavy.

    the clamps are better than the ones on my SLX
