Gardiner backpack !

Hello all 😊

I’m in a bit of a dilemma! As some of you will know I’m just starting out...

I am going for a trolley system to start before I can find the funds for a small van set up! 

I can’t for the life of me purchase this Gardiner backpack! It’s not in stock on their website until May! I’ve searched Facebook market place, gumtree and even shpock to no avail! 

I’m seriously thinking 🤔 could I use the Facelift - big boy 2 backpack which the window cleaning warehouse guys are currently offering? 
 

From what I have researched so far these backpacks are both similar and the two best on the market currently. However with experience on here what should I do? 
 

1) Wait until May

2) Go with the big boy backpack 

3) Any of you willing to sell your gardiner back pack? 
 

one last question... do Gardiner WFP’s go with the big boy backpack?

Buy the Bigboy, I've got an old one and is only used occasionally but it still works. The Gardiner one is better but it's 5+ years newer so should be. I run Gardiner poles off it using Ez Snap connectors.

And some hoselock connectors to connect to hose reel and WFP

Sorry it's vague, heading off to work. Will try and elaborate more when back 👍

The pump box is way over priced for what it is. If you can't get a Gardiners a Big Boy is next best.

One thing about barrels is the diameter of the hole. The ones you linked to seem to be under 50mm hole. You can get 70mm ones that pour easier and you can fit a 51mm transfer pump in if you want. Something like these 25 litre water container 70mm cap

Get almost any kinda backpack..and get cracking on the work. Then buy decent gear. If that's what you need to do.

Look online for the Hogred 25l barrels, they are anti glug allowing you to pour the whole thing in 10 seconds.
