    Cheers Tony. It's a great addition to my WFP van system. The first one I did was a mess, so this looks a bit more professional.

    I was thinking that the reel may make it a bit top heavy??
    That's the only reason i haven't done it yet
    I have about 20m of hose that i coil up in my hand and put a big clip round wagga style and that is easy enough but i like the idea of the reel
    Any problems?
    My trolley has a folding foot plate so too much weight will make it unstable when no drum on it

    Hi Daveyboy, it's perfectly balanced, countered by the drum and pump box. The foot plate was folding but I riveted some brackets to stop it folding and it's now very rigid. Like you I used to coil my hose on my last trolley but it was a pain in the bum..

    if the reel was on the other side, it'd be unstable, but being on that side it looks pretty good
