or the SLX 39ft (Less 5ft offers 34ft or reach) 155-4391
Consider the complete Kit if you do not have a pole in your posession. 159-1202
Powering the 24v Brush with a Battery Setup
Two 12v Batteries can be wired in Series
This will create a 24v circuit for running the brush
24v Batteries are commonly available
This LifePO battery will last longer than a lead acid battery
A Clipped connector to a 24 battery would allow for easy removal of the battery for charging
Wiring Kits are available to ease the wiring of two 12v batteries into 24v circuit
Use the proper connectors to attache the power Cable to the Battery/Power Source
Use a 24v Battery Charger to make the charging easy to manage Item 74-7502

Using water on glued parts may cause them to become detached. Do not use the unit on wood floors or parquet that are not well-sealed.
Be careful when cleaning doors, parquet, painted surfaces or surfaces coated with synthetic products, and aluminum panels.
Before using the brush, we advise performing a test on a portion of the surface that is not in view, to prevent damage or alterations during cleaning.
PRODUCTS TREATED – HANDLED OR GENERATED
Verify in the photovoltaic system’s operating manual the type of brushes that can be used for cleaning it, so as not to cause abrasions on the panels’ film.
It is important to avoid all operating situations that could cause repeated and unexpected stops of the brush’s rotation, such as those specified below:
- In the case of surfaces comprised of panels, the maximum distance between them must be 3 cm to prevent the unit from dropping into the empty space between one panel and the next.
- The surfaces must be as free as possible of protruding parts such as long screws, brackets, and terminals, which could obstruct brush rotation or rharm the bristles.
- This is a low water pressure brush, water can be from the tap, or one of many water pumps and water boost pumpes. Generally less tan 100PSI
- When not in operation, never allow the unit’s weight to rest on the rollers’ bristles so as not to bend them when resting.
