    Jimmy got myself a caddy van year 06. I have 6 drums up each side and pump box in the middle of the van floor. Going to buy 40 meters of hose and use it as a van mount, at least there will be less lifting them drums ffs they kill me lol

    How do you find the 8mm od hose on the reel does it kink much?

    The Gardiners all season hose has been great through the summer. Think its been on the Trolley now around 7-8 months with no punctures. Parts have slightly swollen with the summer heat and pressure but it is still going strong. Its the best 8mm OD hose I have used for not kinking or curling up.
    I've just had some more in case it gives up the ghost.
