    Hi Paul good to hear its going well. I think there's been a few trends lately about this very subject If you can afford it get it fitted by a proper company who have had there systems crash tested. Apart from the insurance part of it ( there are loads of window cleaners with self fitted systems who's insurance is worth nothing if they have a bad crash)

    DIY and get the biggest tank your payload will allow taking into account all other gear, and yourself. Can't see the point in spending billy big b0ll0cks kind of money when you can do the same yourself for a fraction of the cost.

    Right now I don't I am still using a trolley/back pack, I am currently toying with a van mount and if I did I would make my own pump box so I can use it on trolley or van mount, it really is very straight forward, there are a couple of really good posts in the DIY section. I'll see if I can dig some up.

    Go DIY, save thousands and have fun designing and fitting it. It's all fairly simple and loads of info on here such as those Diwrnach has linked to. Plus you'll be able to fix, upgrade and so on yourself quicker and cheaper too :thumbsup: Good luck.
