    Looking to buy either a back pack or trolley to use occasionally on a few awkward jobs with limited access.
    I've looked around and there's so many about I've no idea which are good or bad.if you can point me in the right direction it would be a start.

    Gardeners backpack on a sack trolley the charge lasts forever very easy to use can't fault it, to be honest much preferred it to my trolley, I now have a van mount but still use my backpack every now an then great bit of kit especially if you only need it occasionally, I have about 15/20 metres of hose wrapped round the handles so don't have to move it about that much.

    gardiners backpack on a sacktruck is great but if its only a few awkward access windows i wouldn't bother with a sacktruck as even fully topped up they're easy enough to carry

    • I only use a gardeners backpack with a reel and have no use for a trolley on most of my jobs but used to use my diy trolley a lot with just pump, battery, reel with 50m of hose and 25l drum

    Yeah, Gardiner Backpack all the way. I bought a £700 trolley, which is great quality and all that but really my backpack does the job perfectly.
