    You'll probably get what you pay for I've got 2 farily new Gardiner ones that were just over £100 each but I've already returned one with a leak but now the pumps on both pulse when the water cuts off, it's annoying more than anything else but it's not affecting functionality and I can't keep sending stuff back.

    I've only got experience of the Gardiner V3 but I'd highly recommend it. Costs £85 plus VAT.

    I wish ;)
    Poles and brush are extra. Quite a bit extra depending on what you decide to go for.

    I bought an SLX18, a brush and 30m of microbore hose at the same time I bought my backpack and the whole lot came to about £350.

    Shite I've been offered a brodex full system with trailer for £600 just thought I'd try my hand with a back pack 1st but perhaps just buy the full system if that's Wat a back pack will set me back...
