Amazon's finest... mass produced low grade components and they crack due to the plastic being hard. Some of these inexpensive backpacks are made and stored in Chinese warehouses for a lengthy time and the cheap lead acid batteries leak and deplete over time. Building your own trolley system is very easy. More versatile and you'll never wear a backpack and need a trolley to put it on after time

I have a Gardiner backpack which is great but the one I have from window cleaning warehouse (big boy 2 I think it’s called) has been very good. Had it about 2 years or longer. I don’t use it all the time but it’s been great if you need something quicker than waiting for Gardiner.

On a side note it would be interesting to see how the sales of Gardiner backpacks have increased over the past couple of years.

It seems to me that virtually every new starter goes the backpack route as it's a cheap way of getting into wfp.

Hi Spruce yeah I agree a lot of New starters are going this way , but it must be a nightmare keep filling it up at every house or even before u finish . I have a 400 litre and some Jerry cans on board . It was just I have a couple of awkward houses and already I have caught my Hose on side wall . Its so narrow the passage I am ducking under over hanging bushes and branches going down tiny little Steps , like if you are a size 2 feet you be fine stepping on them anything above good luck  , But its all learning I think .

I won a Big Boy Back Pack on here many years ago and whilst it isn't used a lot, 4 or 5 jobs spread over a month, it still works well.

A very good point. They certainly have the right IP and standpoint in the marketplace

Mine is used a few times a week and has never had a problem. Don’t know what it would be like used all day every day but overall I think they’re very good. I put mine on a little folding sack truck I got in screwfix and a couple of bungee cords around it. Lol tell me about extra equipment - some of the stuff I’ve bought that’s not used really user now. I need a sort out and sell off what stuff I don’t use any more.
