5 based on 1 Feefo reviewAverage
FREE Davaon Professional Telescopic Anvil Loppers worth £49.99 (RRP) This Henchman Tripod Platform Ladder has an overall length of 2.4m (8’) and gives an average working height at shoulder level of 3.0m (10’).
Tripod ladders are much more stable than traditional ladders because it is impossible for all three feet not to be in firm contact with the ground, no matter how uneven your garden is. Because of the wide triangular footprint that the splayed legs create, you are almost certain not to wobble. Having just three legs also allows for greater access in difficult areas which is why tripod ladders are ideal for fruit picking and topiary work as well as pruning and hedge trimming.
This Henchman tripod platform ladder has one adjustable leg which means that it can be used safely on gently sloping ground.
This Henchman Tripod Platform Ladder has a wide ‘platform’ step from which to work. The platform safely supports the whole foot and leaves 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. This results in a remarkably comfortable, safe and secure stance from which to work on almost any type of garden terrain.
The feet are designed specifically for soft ground and greatly reduce the risk of slipping or sinking. Their width spreads the weight and the inverted cup design "grips" the ground. For very slippery or delicate surfaces Henchman tripod ladders can be fitted with rubber shoes which are available in the accessories section.
The whole ladder is made from aluminium and therefore surprisingly lightweight so it can be carried easily by one person.
