    I use the wcw 18 litre job. Once you got flow right & got used to it it can last a while. Most backpacks only go to 20 litres as any heavier you can't wear em on yer back as to heavy which is why most of us use a trolley

    A trolly is like £500!

    A backpack + a sack trolly, just as good as the atuall thing lol. and loads cheaper!

    No way would I carry a back pack on my back, am not that strong, am a lightweight, so would weigh me down loads!! :p

    One full backpack gets me 30 minutes and 10 double hung windows cleaned all day every day. A refill takes about 60 seconds.
