    i reckon you might get thirsty as looks tricky to assemble . the legs are water operated , can you bleve that

    I would rather a device where one ladder foot was on the ground rather than the leveler taking the full weight if you know what I mean.

    personally i dont think it would suit our trade as at 4 kgs in weight nobody would like carrying it around all day its way too heavy .
    however its such an unusual idea to use water filled rams for the legs . i dunno if id trust them,as said above

    yeh it looks good in action...personally i would like to have seen it actually built into the side stiles of the ladder and the legs just level and you press a button and the stay there...bearing in mind what a lot of our american car buffs do with the jack the car up and down idea...

    i couldnt see how he kept it level once it had adjusted but presume it works okay...

    one day the ultimate ladder will arrive...dont worry boar...i not been totally infected with wfp ...me loves me ladder...:D

    hey on that other post re the £75 job for working from 10 til 4...bet i could get that as a subby to you:whistle:
