its a beast of a set up i reckon every one will have one on here soon:D

Its spreading like wildfire. I'm going to feel quite proud when I set it up on my first job, but I need to get a bit slicker at adjusting it. When I was trying to lower it yesterday, the pins went in every hole down the pole, but I know you can just give the bar a little twist and it doesn't.

I would rather spend a few mins extra on a job knowing the ladder is not going to go anywhere than dashing about taking chances. Yes it takes a little bit of getting use too to setup and take down but I'm old so I just take my time :D

I think they might have sent me out a combi ladder by mistake. Not sure if that's good or whether there is any disadvantage to that. The combi is about 2oquid dearer though.

Hopefully I'll find out whether it is or not this weekend when I get to have a play with it.

LMAO.

 

At least he stands by (or on) his products. In one of his pics hes standing at the top of a 1ometre triple with no one footing- that takes some guts.

 

It seems a good company, its my second BPS ladder now and both times the delivery was quick.

From what I remember the pic was just showing how to attach the foot. The instructions were for a combi but I thought they were just generic to there ladders. It only twigged as I was fitting the ankalad. My mrs chucks everything out so its probably long gone now.:rolleyes:

Hang on I will just have to go outside now to drop my ladders down from the van to see what's on the label that is if it hasn't worn off by now.

Main label on bottom left hand side has worn off but on the right hand has labels showing how to set the ladder up including a seperate label for the combi A frame setup.

I must have the touch of the anka's as have a go at it most days :D

 

Today I will be having a go at this one which is full exterior house deep clean including conservatory roof & sides.

 

I will also be using the ladder setup free standing so to gain enough height to reach & wfp pole all the areas of the conservatory roof. As it's a very awkard design with a glass roof and ali sides I've found it's much easier with an ankalad ladder set free standing than to try resting a normal ladder & stand-off on it.

 

My conservatory ladder would be no good either on that design so that must make me an anka:rofl:

Thanks for that smurf. It is a combi, its got the label tucked on the side. I suppose it could come in useful some day. I got to try out the microlite this morning- Wow, that makes it solid as a rock. I'm still not sold on having wheels on it, even though they are supposed to flatten. But the proof was in the pudding, I was even trying to push the ladder from the side, but it didn't budge. Makes me wanna ank all over it.

That house looks like a bstardo. A good time to own a vac. I would go up on that left corner using a corner stand off, but I don't think my pole would reach the full length so I would probably head of to the neighbours garden to get the rest. Hope it goes well mate.

They are not normal wheels @TolishAPurd

 

Did you notice when you climbed to the top of the ladder the D wheels on your standoff flattened down againt the tiles?
