    Good luck you can't beat a bit of practise . Just a thought on the trolley . You may find it a lot easier using one with a round handle . You can pull the trolley and hold the pole in the other hand I know I wouldn't be able to use that on compact work . But you might be ok on single jobs .

    I've tried the hose reel and the down pipe . I took em both off after a couple days . I wrap the hose round the handle . Just un coil it on the first job and the hose then follows me to the next job . Didn't like the holder I found it easier carrying it in the other hand . But all my work is compact so it is really easy working this way . But like I say try stuff an d see what works .

    Where's the backpack from dasslr1 ? Looks good and so much easier to get round back of some properties with rather than pulling and snagging the hose.

    Nice one mate. I'm only after one for the jobs that are a bit of a pain at the back. I've used them before, one for chemicals (heavy de-greaser) for restaurant vents and other stuff and then one for the windows on hard to do places. I looked at DIY but I honestly think after buying pump, battery etc it will be easier and cheaper to buy a backpack.
    Hope you like it bud, nothing like making the job easier :thumbsup:
