    Been using pure freedom trolley for 6 weeks now, and enjoying the new experience. My only gripe is taking the hose off and on the trolley every house. Thinking of using Gardiners All Season pole hose 8mm OD. Much thinner, lighter and more flexible. I won't be leaving the hose on the road, to be run over by cars, so can't see a problem. Has anyone else tried this hose, and what results ?

    What do you mean by 'taking the hose off every house'?

    Sorry, meant unwinding and winding the hose on to the trolley, every house.

    Am I right in thinking you're using the clear pole hose? How much hose have you got on the trolley and is it on some sort of reel? On my trolley, I have about 20' of hose with a tap and that connects to the hose on my pole. If you're not using a reel, you could wind it round the handle. I find this works well, but I only use it for a few jobs.

    I am using the microbore 11.5 OD hose. I have about 15 metres which I wind on the levers at the back of the trolley.

    Have you tried using pole hose only? You were asking about the Gardiners all season hose. Was that to replace the microbore? If you're thinking about using a tap, I found the all season would pull out easily. The orange pu hose that Gardiners sell doesn't pull out of inline taps.

    The All Seasons is pole hose, that was why I was questioning if it was ok to use.

    Crossed wires, yes, it's ok to use. I don't like it much though, I prefer the Gardiners orange pu hose.
