    I'm currently using an old piece of rubbish that is just about ready for the scrap yard, so looking for a new one.

    Could anyone point me in the direction of a cheap and cheerful two tier extension ladder, about 6m? :D

    I get mine from Clow Group and get them to put feet on them, there not cheap but neither is your health. Cant believe some folks use B&Q ladders I just would not feel safe at all with them.

    6m is what i use for about 90% of the time. I also carry 30 foot triples for a few hard to get at windows.

    Surely that's not long enough for most upstairs windows Mr Tay?
