Facelift Compact

Hi All,

 

I know a few of you are working with the facelift compact just wondering what you all think of it now as it's been available for some time? I am looking at the 325l, electric wheel and underports. How is the fitting? I've done a few searches and a few have mentioned the poor fitting kit?

 

Ideally, I would take it to wcw to be fitted. 

 

I am currently working with a backpack and making the pure with an unger hydro flow.

Hand mine a year never misses a beat works great the only regret is I bought one with the proloc manually reel good quality reel but wished I had got the powerup hd in the first place, however I recently purchased a power up reel so extra happy now.

 

the fitting kit isn't great as it is only screws and not bolted, if you used the kit diy yourself as it only takes around 10 minutes and wcw want silly money to put 8 screws in. 

 

Can't see how you would used underparts as the reel is mounted on top of the tank just open the door and use or cut hole in floor and install rollers.

Thanks for your reply Den, I have just been quoted £350+vat for the fitting of the system. 

 

They offer the option of secure pulleys rather than the underports so everything can be left in the van locked.

 

The full ststem in coming in at £1550+ vat.

Could you not bolt it instead of just having screws? I'm sure it's ok when everything is alright,but have to do severe braking,or if you crashed how would it cope?
Think other systems are crash tested and maybe that's why they charge extra for fitting. Putting plates and bolts in etc?

I agree bolted with spreader plates would be better without a doubt.

Screws :1f635: to secure something weighing nearly 500kg , http://grippatank.co.uk won't be that more expensive @steve garwood got a 2 man system fitted with secure pulleys  on his driveway for less than the prices on their website as he did the plumbing and pretty sure  it was less than your quoted price above although not with a reel but they ain't that expensive.

Contact @GrippaTANK directly and speak to them about what you require I think you will be surprised, When I switch motors next year it will be GrippaTank system and nothing else I have done my research and for what Grippa offer they are by far the best priced.

The screws are easy replaced with bolts and a spreader platejust need a larger drill bit

 

reason I bought one was as its. Complete system where included all plumb in and wired up in a very smart compact design no mess and all out off sight.

 

1. Pump

2. Controller

3. Plumbing

4. Fitting

5. Battery

6. Power hd reel which alone is very expensive.

 

you could either diy or get system installed.

 

or get compact and add a eight bolts and spreader plates and save a fortune.

You can't slate diy set ups as the compact tank looks to have the same baffles so not much difference other than shape and the fittings in place.
