    Sweet. As of tomorrow I'm going to have exactly the same smurf setup. BPS 12 rung ladder, Ankalad, and a microlite to boot. I need to do a little push on the gutter jobs now to justify the expense.
    I didn't get any instructions with mine, is the Ankalad pretty straight forward to fit?

    tench0771 /Smurf, have you used your ankalad freestanding yet? I need to trim some tree branches so it'll be very useful for that. Even if I rest the top of the ladder on a tree branch it'll be nice to have that extra stability.

    Yes I have and use it most days free standing doing conservatory roof cleans etc.
    I've also used it for hedge & tree pruning too.:thumbsup:

    That's a huge help, cheers smurf. :thumbsup:

    Ladders arriving tomorrow so hopefully get a chance to fit it on then and have a play. Good idea about the hedge cutting. I have a few that I cut regularly that would be perfect for this.

    Another thing I was wondering about the BPS ladder is, if I take off the top section, can I use ladder mitts on the 2 remaining sections? I'm thinking of taking just 2 pieces on my next window round alongside my new a frame ladder as I have a few awkward windows, and I don't fancy lugging all three pieces about .
