    another wee trolley i made up, i took my gardiners backpack apart.. prefer to be able to swap the barrels than to keep filling the backpack up...



    folding trolley £25 from B and Q

    gardiners backpack £135

    water proof box - £25 B and Q ( it was a package with extension cable, timer and trip swtich )

    bungie cord - £1 for 3

    water container - £4.50


    its very light, the battery is only 9ah, the battery life is brilliant... will do at least 2 full days cleaning, the box can be opened quickly, without having to take out screws etc.. as i used all parts from my gardiners backpack, there is battery level leds and also the charger connection & charger.. which are inside of the box.. i will be making leds visable from outside and maybe put charger connection somewhere too... folds down to 33''H 19"W 7"D... could easily fit behind a car seat or in the boot

    backpacks were not for me

    Due date for release jan 2013... pre order yours today!!

    Ive used my backpack about 3-4 times because of the filling or not having enough water.

    Im thinking about making on of these now. My one problem or question would be could I fit a flow controller to this? My current backpack doesn't have on you see

    I think the pump needs to have a pressure switch so you can adjust the flow? Ask doug to be sure on that mate..

    Would it be a digital controller or a DIY controller you want? I'm going to be making a new trolley with a shurflo 100psi pump and digital controller so I can use as a van mount/trolley

    DIY I have a few parts laying around that I think will work. Failing that Ill get a second hand one from some where. What the max weight that it can hold?

    Ill stop in after B&Q today and see about a trolley.
