    im going to be buying some for on my trolley, in the next few weeks. will let you know what theyre like... i expect the feet to be a nightmare... and more than the usual movement with less of a safe lean angle.

    A few years back i'd have been that soldier, nowadays I rely on myself to check the equipment is in good condition, set up right and sturdy.

    Sometimes you can set up a ladder worse than you know...

    I use a telescopic with my trolley set up, mainly for scaling over walls etc... and the odd low cottage 1st floor windows.
    Can't remember where I got it online...
    2 years old still in good condition, make sure you double check the click when extending the ladder.
    The feet are pretty good and never lost traction there again I wouldn't do anything foolish with it.

    Tried Them a few times , great tool as you dont smash anything around in a house on inside cleans! Must say i hated it at first , standing up there knowing that thing could collapse on you anytime , but it didnt ,and im 87 kg ! So ... :D Its a trust issue , the invention is great :thumbsup:

    I've had one for four years. Great piece of kit. I use it as an access ladder to get to flat roofs etc with a pole.
