    Omnipole Systems Ltd used to do them. We bought our first one from them. It was a ESR-505C sprayer with a blue colured top.
    They wanted nearly £300 for them in those days, but it was on Ebay and we bid a lot less than that.

    The current ESR 505C my son uses cost £112 off a supplier on Ebay - still going strong.

    window cleaning crop sprayer spraying backpack. Proback 505 three speed

    The average window cleaner isn't going to spent Omnipole prices for a backpack when they can get one from Gardiners cheaper. The one Omnipole do now is a Streamline one for £150.

    If your getting van Dave
    You prob won't bother with trolley
    It's mostly reel from van but back pack is great for small jobs or awkward access
    Plus you can put chems in Shurflo that's what there made for

    Actually just checked spruce link
    That's not made by Shurflo
    That's why it's £100 cheaper

    That's the plan mate
    I already use my trolley with 30m of microbore and 30m of pole hose on a reel so i do that from my car whenever possible

    Prob worth getting a reel with 60m plus microbore as it will annoy you if you are short
