The most convenient long ladder!
on 7 March 2014
Whilst i have long conventional extending ladders, I find them a pain to drag out of the garage for quick routine tasks like clearing gutters - something I have to do 4 times a year where we are
Small to store, quick and easy to set up and at 5 metres fully extended reaches our gutters with ease.
Extending is simple. Retracting takes a little getting used to - you need both hands to 'slide' the clips rung by rung which means you have to leave your fingers well clear as each section 'self closes' pretty quickly!
Construction feels solid, and particularly so when used as an A Frame ladder with good width and depth of steps.
When fully opened/extended there is some 'flex' where the hinged joint is which initially is slightly disconcerting if you are used to the more rigid 2 piece sliding/extending ladders.
Whilst not yet used as such, the ability to alter each side separately will be brilliant for setting up on stairs.
All in all very pleased, and amazed that it was delivered from Germany just 4 days after ordering
