    Well done smurf. You are actually the man when it comes to ladders aren't you? Lol.

    Was hoping you'd pop up, I know you use the ankalad have you tried or do you use the leveller and is it any good?

    Hi! Crown... I work on foot/bike/trailer... I have had a good look at these and 4m is not enough. I current use Abru 4.7m which with a stand-off reach over most hard to reach windows. Anything shorter would not work. Unless I used a small pole ext to clean the odd difficult window. I spend most of my time thinking about ladders and what is easier etc. I reckon these would be great in one sense being very light in weight and they look strong. But. for the price I reckon it may be a gamble as to whether that match up to what I am currently using... Thanks for posting... I too am interested to know how handy they are?...

    The yanks use a much better sectional ladder system than that as is way too sort for most 2 storey work.


    Have a look at his other vids on sectional ladders that are interesting to see

    No I haven't tried their leveller as my ladders have stabilisers bars on the bottom sections so it won't work on mine.


    If I want to level the ladder I use a ladder mat ONLY when the ankalad is deployed as we all know rubber will slip on wet or slippery surfaces.
