All of our Tripod Ladders come with a wide Platform step from which to work which safely supports the whole foot leaving the top 3ft of the ladder to lean against. It also allows you to tuck your knees in, increasing your stability and brace yourself against the inside of the verticals.
The result is a remarkable comfortable, safe and secure stance from which to work on almost any type of garden terrain.
The feet are also designed specifically for soft ground and greatly reduce the risk of slipping or sinking. Their width spreads the weight and inverted cup design grips the ground. For slippery surfaces they can be fitted with optional rubber shoes which also work well to protect flooring when used inside.
Having just three legs also allows for greater access in difficult areas which is why they are ideal for fruit picking and topiary work as well as pruning and light hedge trimming.
If you are faced with steps and banks, the Fully – 3 leg Adjustable Professional version comes into its own. With an adjustability of 18 inch (46cm) on each leg the Platform of the ladder can then be made level on more challenging terrains.
The whole ladder is made of high grade aluminium, fully welded under ISO 9001-2000 conditions. The professional version is designed for a 150kg maximum safe working load. In spite of this the Tripod Ladder is surprisingly lightweight. This makes carrying, transporting and storing, a job for one person and makes using it the simplest of chores.
