    Hi people,
    Anybody have any experience using a Gardiner backpack? I've got a few customers with access problems and I was considering getting one of these systems, any thoughts.

    Wcw orange one I've had for over 2 years. Can't fault it. Got a big boy to as a spare but rarely use it as wcw touchwood keeps going & going. It's got a Handel as well unlike the big boy whose Handel is on the lid & comes loose. Not used a gardeners so can't comment.

    I have the grdiners v2 edition, only use it now and then, they have a third edition that looks more like a proper wfp backpack, mine looks like a crop sprayer, which I think looks naff, but does the job.

    I bought one for exactly the same reason a few months ago. So far so good, taken it out and used it at least a dozen times and it's still showing a full charge. With a pole i think it cost around £220 ish. Fortunately I have someone supplying me with barrels of pure water. For those awkward windows it's a life saver and also for the ground when there are thorny shubs/roses in front of the windows.

    sorry to bump this thread,
    i've got a question about backpacks: can you put a tap on the end of its pipe, and will the pump auto shut-off, or do you have to turn it on/off as you move?
