my new trolley...woohoo!!


Recommended Posts

Finally had time to make my new updated trolley and printed my own decal..not to shabby..lol

The hose is around 75m so i can leave it in the van on most jobs.

the pump is a surflo with a varistream controller, powered by a 24ah battery.

the wires are hidden in the frame tubing.

the trolley is 45 

hose was 40 for 100 meters

reel was from the range for 10

and other attachments was 20

soooo around 250 i would say.

Im confused. This sack truck is the one I have been looking at on Amazon as I am looking to buy one. This is just a modded one of those then? What is wrong with the op? Is he trying to sell them online as his own  or something?



 yep thats the one matey that i use there is also a cheaper one that is black with red wheels but they dont come in a box and i found they goy all scratched up. never buy the stair wheel sack truck as this was on my last trolley build and i hated it all the time it just would not turn.

Can you show us in more detail how your getting the hoselock into the barrel on the old trolley? I assume there's a pipe of some sort in there too.

hi matey drill a hole in the top of a lid and get a STRAIGHT COUPLINGS 15MM X 15MM here is the link....http://www.screwfix.com/p/straight-couplings-15mm-x-15mm-2-pack/95828

then a brass tube to get to the bottom of the 25l container leaving a gap at the bottom for flow purposes

on the top of the lid get a hozelock adapter from bq for £2. your good to go matey.


OHH dont forget to make a small breathing hole 1-2mm on the top of the lid as i found out the hard way...i left my trolley in the van sucking from a 25l container and when i was finished the container caved in to its self...lol..luckly i did not damage the pump as the pressure must have been great to sandwich the container.
