    I use pure freedom which is ok. Main advantage over a fixed tank trolley is it can be used static in a van too by just conecting it to a van tank when you don't need it as a trolley :)

    It uses the same quality kit as a van mount so all you need to do is fit in the van a decent size tank to feed it instead of keep having to swap barrels.

    Unlike H who decided to strip it down to make a van mount then go a buy a chepo backpack. Go figure :rolleyes:

    Not having a go about anyone using a backpack but the parts they use and build quality seem utter **** to me so would not last very long if I used one to be honest.

    i have had mine about 2 years now but i only use it 3-4 times a month so i really don't know how long it would last but they don't fill like they were made to be used all the time

    Quite easy but to be honest can be a pain in the **** using any type of trolley and lugging barrels of water about. That's why after a very short time I started using it static in the van conected to a van tank instead then just added 100 m hose reel. Job done as wagga would say ;)
