My second DIY trolley copied from Mark Munro.
What size hose is that on the reel
Cheers Daveyboy. It's
MICROBORE™ REINFORCED HOSE 6MM ID / 11.5MM OD
and about 20m on the reel from Gardiner.
Nice job Gary
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
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
