    Hi again gents,
    can anyone advise me on what type of ladders to buy to clean windows on residential property. Cant see them having to go above the 1st floor.
    So would a 2 part or 3 part ladder be best and what hight should I go to, 6 ,7, 8 meter?
    Any advice welcome.
    cheers.Mike

    2 part ladder, 3 part will slow you down a bit. Im not sure what height mine is though

    3.7 double section. Make sure it is a trade ladder not a cheap domestic one

    I would strongly advise having safety feet on the ladder as well.....makes you feel a lot safer. Midland ladders fit supafit swivel safety feet for free on titan ladders. I have a titan 3.5 metre double trade ladder......quality job.

    Two part 11 rungs does all I want it to. Also have a 3 part which is great but as said is awkward & fairly heavy.

    I'd agree with Mrtaytay bout checking out midland ladders, I got mine from there and the supagrip swivel feet are amazing, and I personally have got triple 3m titans, I take the 3rd section off when I'm doing windows and add the 3rd section back for when I do gutter work.
