what amps are you using on your trolleys, mine has died and I need one urgent, this is the one i have but cleaning warehouse might have some in a few weeks, no good to me, this is 26 amp, I see loads for sale, toolstation, screwfix etc but much less amps, what are you using and what is the difference? electrics is not my thing so any advice would be great, thanks.

Try ringing local Golf course with shop. They normally have some.

Unless you know anything about electrics, my recommendation would be that if you are using a trolley you have purchased from say Pure Freedom or one of the other suppliers, that you fit an equivalent size battery to the original. Most 12v 24-26ah batteries are the same dimensions. They are usually golf cart batteries. I've purchased mine from eBay and Amazon with few problems in the past. But make sure you buy a good brand.

You can only get away with using a smaller capacity (ah) battery if you pair it with the right pump. If a trolley is only being used for domestic window cleaning for example it doesn't really need a large heavy pump like a Shureflo, so a backpack pump could be used instead. These will run all day on a 7-10ah battery depending on which pump you fit. If you use a relatively short hose, a 4 litre/min 40-60psi pump will usually suffice in my experience.

I modified my trolley a few years back now and now use a backpack style pump rated at 5 litre/min 70Psi with a battery rated at 12v 10ah and charge it every night. This has worked well for me. Just for reference, I use an 18m length of PU pole hose 90% of the time.

Like I said toolstation next day 12v 12ah thats what I use and my trolley draws 3.6 amps and the battery lasts for 3 days before my voltage alarm beeps at 11.2v
