    Hi all,

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but everytime I try to click on links on what they're buying it displays that the link has been expired, or some error.

    I would like to know what kind of stuff I'll have to buy, anyone generous enough to help me out with what parts I'll have to buy and how to make a decent WFP trolley?

    Thanks in advance guys, I really need it, and buying an already built one cost a bloody fortune!

    :)

    Any parts you need can be found on ebay
    Jimmyboots threads are great but even without his links you only need to look on ebay for pump..battery..charger..flow controller of some description and then put together as per his threads

    This is my latest attempt
    I only extend the handle to drag the trolley as the reel is solid once collapsed and sitting on the box underneath
