There we go then John....A wheelie bin! Just put a tap in the bottom Oh and keep some water in it all the time for stability too.

Just pop a cheque in the post for a licence to the patent

But they're orange!
Got one for 12.48 with pneumatic tyres think they are 20 now but still good value

Now what you should have said is that you were going to wash the wheelie bin out for her, loads of brownie points

I bought one of the 20 sack trucks because I needed one anyway. They're certainly cheap, and pretty flimsy, but the wheels alone are probably worth most of the cost!

Anyway, after a bit of haggling I've ended up with Shed78's bit of heavy engineering, and very nice it is too - should last a while
