I need a new, pretty tall one to work around the house (literally). Has anyone got any experience?

I have a set of triple 3.5m.
The advantage of triple being that you can remove the third set to use alone, or if you only need a double removing one lightens the load, or use them as a triple which gives good height.
This is my second set (first one got nicked)and I have had them for about 20 years and used them extensively in my work.
They are a commercial grade but unfortunately I have no idea what make they are.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thumbs Up
The highest point I need to reach are the gutters which are 3.45m high according to my cheap Chinese telemeter. The situation on the ground is a bit complex but I think a triple ladder can manage that.

I appreciate your concern, but this is merely a replacement: I have an ancient foldable sheet steel ladder for the job, but it has already been welded twice in critical points and has become very unsteady. No point in trying to fix it once again, especially considering the cost of a replacement.
Oh yeah, and despite all the aches and barely functioning parts I still have to climb that ladder at least twice a year to clean the gutters and to prune the Wisteria. Neither job can be deferred sadly. Laugh

Intriguingly enough nobody has ever told me that when working with chippers/shredders, carbide rotary saws etc and especially tractors, which have to be the most dangerous thing devised by mankind. Wink

I like it Quazi Thumbs Up

I'll be careful not to show the Mrs your pics or she'll want me to do similar especially as this year I've skipped the outside lights primarily (me to the Mrs) because I couldn't find the timer but mainly cos it was too cold and wet outside and we need new lights as ours are lacking something Wall
