    Y are you not working today? I thought you were starting at 8am?

    Not really a good idea tho, how many times would you need to fill the back pack? Times that by how long it takes to fill.. There's an hour or so wasted messing about

    Been using trolleys for over two years and can beat anyone I know who uses a hose.

    Had countless friendly races with other window cleaners and staff

    So you dont use a van mount damo ??

    After reading a few posts I have been thinking of working from my backpack in a van using a
    Heated tank in the van then transfer to backpack on each job ???
    Saving reeling in and out etc but still having van mount for larger jobs / commercials etc .

    I still have a van system for massive jobs. But 99% of the time it's trolley.

    I am doing a review on the big boy backpack as well.

    I can be "on the glass" before most guys have reeled out the hose and out cones down.
