    won and picked these combination ladders up today,

    can be used as large steps or as a standard 3 section ladder! nearly 9m high!
    cost me £191 in the end, to buy similar without the adjusting stabilizer bar can look around £340+ for them!

    looking forward to using them as i got a lot of work coming up that they will come in for!

    yer they are nice and sturdy havent tried climbing all the way to the top of them yet! but yer thats what im thinking, especially if i use them like how they are standing next to my van.
    that bar is wider than my van too, and ajustable so that will help

    Think they might have overdone the bar by just a wee bit myself as seems way too big to get setup into the sort of restricted areas I set the ladder on some jobs I do.

    Can you take the bar off if needed easily?

    when its set up as the step ladder i when up to the top of the bit where the 2 ladders meet and if felt really sturdy, didnt have a wobble on it, but if you carried on up the section you extend past that i think thats where the larger bar comes in handy for.

    but yes you can take it off, might take about 15minutes are there are several bolts holing it all on.

    Don't think you are supposed to go past the top of the apex of the A frame when configured unsupported like that. At least I wouldn’t risk it unlike some would do.
