    Would you go for a pure freedom trolley or 2 Gardiner back packs strapped to a trolley when starting out Alex recommended this as an option that would be cheaper but unsure which be best, fancied trolley really. What you all think?

    Cheers

    Backpacks mate the pure freedom trolley is ok but the frame is made of monkey metal and not even powder coated look on eBay there always rusted and look ****
    Backpacks do exactly same job

    I find backpack annoying when you have to take handle off to fill it, I have a daqua trolley and find the change over quicker, just haul of one barrel and slam on the next, just got to pull the tube out and stick in next barrel. I have gardiners backpack as backup tho.

    I like the idea of the pump boxes and 25ltr drums on a sack trolley.

    I was under the impression from a lot on here that the pure freedom trolley was good quality piece of kit is that not the case then??

    Prefer idea of a trolley and back pack as back up if I'm honest

    Thanks all
