Trolley Self Build Help...

Recommended Posts

CNS-southwest

Right,

 

This is not technically window cleaning related as its for car cleaning, but the trolley I want to make will be almost identicle to the ones you guys make for wfp, and I'd like it to be usable as a wfp trolley too.

 

So trolley, with pump n battery on the bottom, then a fake floor above where the 25l containers sit.

 

Here is everything I think I will need:

 

Trolley (60kg) - http://bit.ly/YuBrZ7

 

Pump - http://bit.ly/XFW1Z6

 

Water Container - http://bit.ly/XFWfj4

 

Pump controller - http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=260967700091

 

Hose - unsure of diameter hose? 6mm?

Connectors? Unsure again. (Hose is to go from trolley to car so 5meters maybe? And I need to be able to connect standard hose stuff on the end.

 

I have a battery and charger

 

Some Perspex/wood to dress it up a bit.

 

Have I forgotten anything?

 

All help appreciated :)

You could use a smaller pump 80psi. Then use this as a flow controller and on off switch.

The trolley, I wouldn't bother with, I know a lot use them, and I did, but mine went to the skip, you are far better with a trolley with pump up tyres. Much easier for moving on rough terrain, stones, grass, up kerbs etc

Looks good and sturdy but the platform seems small ??

It isn't much smaller than the other trolley you suggested. The barrels I use are the perfect width, tho over laps the front by an inch or 2, which you could mod with some alu. I have not started with this trolley yet and is in my kitchen cupboard.. But will be building it up soon as I have everything else just need to find a suitable box big enough and the correct width for that trolley, which I can't so thinking of just using 2 boxes.

That's a point, does the battery and pump need to be in a waterproof box ??

I've seen trolleys with pump etc bare, but wouldn't recommend that if your out in the rain, or incase you get splashes or whatever over could corrode wires..

Also looking at the costing, back pack works out more expensive :)
