'Would you like to review one of our beautiful ladders?' the email from Hendon Tripod Ladders said. Well, ok, it did not say beautiful but that is the word that I inserted as it was clearly missing. 'Yes please' I said with no hesitation. I have not paid for this ladder and I have not been paid to write this review. My words and opinions are my own.
The ladder is what I would call, a big one. I chose to try the 10 foot ladder. It has adjustable legs that can be adjusted independently, so it is good for uneven ground. The single leg adjusts in 150mm stages and the other legs by 50mm stages using spring loaded pins for safety. I had a project in mind that needed a big ladder so when the recent rains finally paused enough I knew the time was now.
The ladder is very stable and I felt totally safe whilst using it. I am not the most confident of ladder users as heights do not make me happy, but I was happy moving up and down the ladder and also when carrying out the branch removing task.
These are not cheap ladders, the 10 foot ladder retails at £455 at the time of writing, but you know what? When it is my safety that is on the line then I do not want cheap, I want safe.
I can very happily recommend this ladder. You can buy them direct from Hendon online or they have stockists you can find from their website.
