    First i would just stick to a 25 lt trolley they are heavy enough , Secondly at times when i first started i often took 10 25lt barrels in the back of van and left the trolley in back of van and just used 100m hose

    yer forget the idea of a 50lt one, way to heavy to pull around, just use the 25lt one and carry a few with you. then just swap them when you need to!

    I've put a 50l tub next to my water butt as an overflow and it filled up this week, theres absolutely no way I could lift it up now but then again I am a shrimp.

    purefreedom trolley all day long :) but i find using a trolley is very annoying ! u have to lug the trolley about... then u got to go back to the van and get your 25ltr barrell... it takes up 2 much time if u ask me

    I reckon backpacks save much more time then trolleys
