    I'm looking to buy a backpack and have been looking at the gardiners backpack, is this the one to get or are there better options.

    what do you guys use yours for? ive got a couple of jobs where I drag the hose through there house to clean the backs so was thinking the backpack would be perfect, do they come in handy for any other situations?

    what size and length hose do you use before the pole hose connection

    thanks for any info

    I've been using the Gardiner v3 backpack all day every day for the last five months and highly recommend it.

    I recently got a van mount but have loads of houses that I'll need the backpack for because of access issues.

    I'll probably get another one soon as I want one that I can just pick up and carry through a house which isn't possible with the one I have at the moment as it's fixed to a sack barrow.

    I made a thread about it here

    The wheels are knackered on my trolley, again. Anyone else find the bearings can't take going up and down steps? It's a standard sack truck.

    I use a Gardiner backpack and have used a shurflo in the past. Both are great.
