Hi Ginga

Take a close look at your blades when they are wiping the screen.

To avoid judder, the edge of the blade should be trailing both ways of the arm stroke. ie, if the arm is on the 'up' stroke, the edge of the blade should be facing down and vice versa

If the blade doesn't do this, then the blades will attempt to 'push' rather than 'trail' which leads to judder.

The remedy is to close a small adjustable spanner onto the arm adjacent to where the blades are fixed and twist slightly to assist the blade to trail.

Hope this helps.

Political correctness defined:
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
