cheers Alex but im gonna live with it or try the gloves or maybe giving the pole a coating of what was mentioned earlier see if that remedies it or covers the problem.
i'd send it but i need it everyday and i dont like using the 39 stripped down it feels too wonky as the sections are longer than a 22!!
bought myself some gloves,not happy about it but i'll see how i get on, i didnt mind getting the dreaded black hand when i could wash it off but this is a permanent blotch lol.

Really sounds wrong - sooner we can look at it the better.

Why not just work with 4 sections of the 39 for a few days whilst the other is back with us?

Well that must settle it... No one on ciu has had an issue with the 2.0l Custom. That's my mind at ease  ;)

when we were working in dhl ,  we would buy 4-5 new jumbos every year, some of these vans  would of followed each other down the line yet know two vans would ever be the same ,

some would go miles and miles without needing anything yet we had one that dropped a gearbox at 400 miles , one sized a diff at 6000 mile  some that were in ford every other week while others did 100k a year and needed nothing at all guess you pay your money and hope for a good one
I had a Mondeo years back 55 plate and the clutch or gear box switch played up at 17000 miles. The garage weren't surprised and said they've seen clutches go after few hundred miles. They replaced the clutch and it was ready the next day even though they said it would be four days as the gear box was to come out to replace the switch! I reversed it out the drive and drove round the corner for the same old poop to happen again. If mechanics or "technicians" done what they said it would have saved a whole lot of hassle.
They'll have a very good idea what to expect with the 2.0 Custom as it's been out for a while and I have one advantage being that a Ford garage is 500 yards from my house, the down side is they'll give me a Ford Ka courtesy vehicle!

11.75 Amps in with 10.50 Amps out
Mix of sun and cloud all day
3 hours domestic , 1 hour commercial

This is actually quite interesting - 10.5 amps out.

Didn't you say your pump drew 5 amps on another thread. If that was correct then you've used your pump for around 2 hours of actual window cleaning time - water to the brush head.

We found similar - about 50% of the our workday is actually cleaning and rinsing windows. The rest of the time is doing everything else related to the job.

Then the other oddity - if you started off with a fully charged battery this morning, how did you put back more than you took out?  :)


.
I checked today and at a flow of 80 which i now use  the pump was drawing 4 amps.

How long is tea FATTY  ;D

Sorry - got watching the gogglebox!  ;D

Right, here goes ...

He pays me up front and says "sorry about last time I was rather mean to you ... you do a good job and you always do the cills so here's your money PLUS the fiver I took off of you last time."

I was gob-smacked and mumbled something about - "OK, thanks. I'll pass it on to my daughter." (Which I did.)

Thanks for replying Alex, I wouldnít be able to send back as itís my every day pole, I sell my old poles and renew every year and done fancy using my slx39 while Iím waiting!
Just to be clear though itís not actually splintering by looks of it but itís giving something prickly on my skin, the black Iíve always had and just consider it part of owning a carbon pole and usually just washes off but this pole itís really stubborn and wonít come off my hand😂
Think I might have to look at using gloves maybe but hereís a photo of my hand after scrubbing with fairy and a rough sponge then solvent remover and nothing is touching it, about a month or 2 old this pole

It really does not seem correct or normal  ???

Please get the pole back to us for us to look at the issue and sort it for you.
