    Whats your thoughts guys had my mind set on getting DIY Van system W F P from pure freedom,
    now i,m starting to think maybe trolley system would be way to go maybe more versatile getting
    round houses abit quicker
    would the trolley be awkward humping it in and out of the van with the weight
    Damo got me thinking the other day how well he was getting on with his system
    cheers duncs

    The only issue i had was the dry weight.

    15kg trolley then say 5kg for the backpack + whatever water you have in the container. Usually rounds up to about 22kg.

    SO i purchased a 7kg sack barrow (aluminium) Made so much difference. Cost about £55 and its lasted over a year. Well its looks no different and its still going strong.

    The thing with trolleys is the speed of getting to awkward house etc.

    Watched a chap today, he couldn't park near the house. so he ran out a good 80M of hose just todo the house. He came over and really studied my setup.

    Both. I started with a trolley, then van mount. I use the trolley now and again. Probably use it tomorrow to clean a gym that's miles down someone's back garden. I prefer the van mount tbh.

    Will see what I have got saved on computer.

    I have pretty much done the whole setup scenario in most ways now.

    I changed my van setup about 2 weeks ago maybe 3 and this is the best it's gonna get.

    350 upright. Proper cage and trolley system. LOVE IT.
