    Just wondered if anyone has this type of ladders, they have d-rungs and a stabiliser bar, looking at the combination ladder, as trying to get a smurf style setup. Got my ankalad, but want to fit it to a new ladder, as mine is just a diy ladder. Appreciate any thoughts of this product:)

    Thought about the 7.58m, just under 25ft, £125 inc vat and delivery

    Do they have the d-rungs? I find the square ladder I have pretty uncomfortable, even with boots on. I was trying to find what size of ladders smurf and you use, but couldnt find the link, what height do you use?:)

    Oh I missed the d rung bit. Its the 13rung which is their biggest one. I have one of the industrial class 1 ladders that BPS do and that has d rungs, but it doesn't have the bottom stabiliser which works very well when combined with the ankalad. The industrial is pricey, and I wouldn't want to carry a 13 rung version about.

    I've never had a problem using box standard rungs if anything I would have thought you are more likely for your feet to slip if not careful using d rungs :rolleyes:

    You just scared me with that comment, I hope the d doesn't mean death rungs. I've got size 11-12 feet so thought the d rungs would be better, maybe just get the bps, more Thinking to do.thanks
