    image.jpg image.jpg Took me most of the day in and around the usual shopping trip and visiting my nan for afternoon tee, but i managed to finish my new trolley.

    Its small and compact no extras, bare essentials only, its not the best trolley by a long shot but its probably the cheapest and smallest, ive made this so i can get it in and out the car easily and eas to store in the cupboard over night/weekend.

    It works fine and i will use it this week out in the window cleaning wilderness and let u Know how it copes. If the wheels prove to be a pain due to the size i will put on some pump up wheels off the bay.

    And i have taken pictures throughout the making of this so i will do a "how to make one" thread if it will be wanted?

    This trolley cost about £60 fellas :eek: :laugh:
    The ikea trolleyis advertised at £9 on their website but im sure it was £9.99 when i was there
    Plus water containers di vessel and pole+ accessories makes it very cheap for a first time effort for anyone, who could always upgrade to a better trolley if and when using all the parts on this one.

    Cant get much cheaper than this, easy too. Ive got a gardiner pole, but i also have a harris pole, i would be tempted now to use that now becausei know more about the set upon a pole. Buy a tecbuk Brush as i hear alotof people rave about them. I only wfp the upstairs on some roads i do, makes for some quick quality cleaning.

    If u get a van u can make a van mount urself on the cheap also

    Thanks, i was looking in b&q for a box and i saw these at £7.49 and thought they looked about the right size, only just big enough for the battery and only just fit on the backof the trolley there, could have been a failure, only a few mm spare
