    Hi everyone wanted to give you a quick review on my backpack. Just to get you up to speed I am 100% trad however ive been looking into wfp for them awkward windows etc that are just to hard/dangerous to get. Eventually once i start to get more customers and more ££££, i will become fully wfp and get a van and system.

    So.... the back pack i have been doing alot of research on what to buy. At first i wanted a trolley system and had my eye on the pure freedom one. However this comes at a price as you all know. For months i have been watching items on ebay but with no such luck. I then thought about get one of those WCW backpacks and making a trolley system but tbh i think they look pants and i dont want to look un professional in front of customers with one of these. So whats left???

    After doing some more research i came across someone on here (cant remember who sorry!) who had found an item on ebay which was exactly what i had been looking for :)

    I took a chance as i could not find anyone else who had bought one of these (LINK BELOW)

    The back pack has on/off, speed function and a battery indicator, it also beeps when its ready for charging. It will hold 16ltrs which isnt loads but enough for what i need at the moment. The only mod i have had to make was to add a pole connection which i did simply by cutting the hose and attaching a female end stop

    All i can say is if you are in the same situation as me i really do recommend one of these. For £135(inc delivery) you are getting the same thing pure freedom do for £500. No brainer really!

    Cheers Guys

    Nice review mate, think it might have been me lol.

    So there's no problem with it generating enough pressure then?

    Looks good mate. I have a wcw one & to be honest there don't look a lot of difference. More or less same buttons same colour & on a trolley like mine. Cheaper tho. Mine was £150 all in but I get 2 xtra litres which is not good on yer back lol. I like the look of it & glad yer pleased with it.
