    Been searching around trying to find which one to buy as I've got some courtyards to do in a big block of apartments,

    I was gonna get a backpack but there just way too small in capacity,

    But trolley systems are stupidly expensive for essentially is a really easy and simple bit of kit!!!!

    Might make my own...

    Anyone made there own decent one?

    Smudger on the other forum has some pictures up of a couple of trollies he has had made up for jobs he has with internal courtyards. Units fitted with 100 liter tanks.

    What about something like this as the platform for awkward large commercial jobs?

    Only issue with that is storage and how much room it'd take up in the van...
