    Hi & welcome paul1

    It is really down to personal choice what type of wfp trolley you go for. However speaking from experience they are a real pain in the **** for everyday work. Myself in hindsight I should have just gone for a decent size van & wfp van mount in the back of the van instead of struggling as I find a van mount so much better to use.

    For the price you pay for a purfreedom 50 litre trolley (£606.00 inc vat) you could buy a good size baffled water tank, new leisure battery, new 5 lpm 100 psi pump, new controller and hose reel if you shop around.

    I defo would not want to lug about a 50 litre trolley either.

    I went with a van mount system from pure freedom in the end and Gardiners poles, as for a gutter vac i ended up with one from here!

    I currently use the Pure Freedom 50ltr trolley and its a very good bit of kit but annoying having to get it out and set it up each time, particularly as I'm currently working out of VW Polo (somehow) so it only just squeezes in through the side door. Hopefully getting a van soon which will make life far easier on that front. Its maybe a bit pricey but does exactly what you want it to.

    After four months since changing to wfp I think I have finally cracked it.
    I have used three different hose and three types of taps.
    My system now consists of a pure freedom 25l trolley and a Gardiners SLX22 pole. I have 40 metres of streamline lite-5 hose on a reel attatched to my trolley all the way through my aquadapter to my brush. So I have no connections to worry about and nothing to catch on bushes, etc. I find the lite-5 hose the best by far. There are hardly any kinks and it is much more supple.
    I drive a Ford Focus, and can fit my trolley and four barrels in the boot, with two more barrels on the back seat. I use one barrel an hour, so have plenty of water. As I only need a ladder for going over garages to get to back gardens, I have disposed of my double ladders, and now use a Youngman's telescopic ladder, which also goes in the back.
    As Smurf said everybody is different. Personally I love the trolley system. After thirty years of trad cleaning, I am not going home knackered, and find the results great.
