Luvly jubly Tench, want one:thumbsup:. A question though regarding using the ankalad. if there is soft ground, flower bed would the ankalad sink down? Does it only work on solid ground? or if there is something like a step, bushes in the way can you still use it, do they adjust I'm probably being stupid. Think I would like them for clearing gutters give you more confidence on ladders. I was at a friends tonight for a bbq, ended up doing their windows, my wife done the insides, however I used my friends ladder, what a bone shaker:confused:, was quiet afraid, thinking why am I doing this, when my ladders were on the car:eek:

They are quite bouncy those bps ladders but with an ankalad deployed it takes the bounce out of the ladder too. Did you notice that @tench0771 ?

Yep that can be a drawback at times but if you use a microlite standoff aswell the ladder can overcome most issues like that.

Also I've found the ladder stabalising bar at the bottom of the ladder sometimes needs to be leveled properly so I bought a ladder mat which works well with the ankalad deployed. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/121316962165?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=108&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=108

 

The only jobs I can't do with that ladder is in narrow gaps that a normal ladder would get in like between two conservatories. But after saying that a ladder is alot more stable (sideways slip) with a stabalising bar at the bottom of the ladder than using one without.
