Well at least people say that I am useful - unlike you I'll bet!

Great item, had one for ages....simple but so very handy for that quick step up for the odd hard to reach jobs around the house.
#5
Bought 2 of these from Wicks when they were £14 each. Came in invaluable when painting the 7 rooms, hall stairs and landing when our extension was finished.
#6
handy for painting my chateau;-). I'm with Rizla01 0n this

Good post, thanks to the OP.
I have one of these and it's a most useful addition to the DIY kit. Great for decorating indoors and out, and excellent as a workbench for small sawing and drilling operations.

Said from someone who's never had to use one no doubt. These are invaluable for plastering, painting walls etc. Light and easy to move about, I find them invaluable.

This might only be 2 feet wide put you can probably stretch whilst stood on it & it will remain stable, unlike a chair.

I personally think this one from Machine Mart would be better for only £10 more

This thread is great - chair vs. platform - which is better? Only one way to find out - fight :w00t:

They're useful for tradesmen working on building sites. Most sites won't allow (or shouldn't allow, if they follow health and safety) the use of step ladders, and will insist you use these, or a mobile platform instead. Mobile platforms are too big and cumbersome for smaller jobs, hence the popularity of these hop-ups.
I'd like to add that I think they're no safer than step ladders, as I'm always stepping off them.., but I don't make the rules.
Hot from me

You could always get yourself one of these. I appreciate it's more expensive but the extra bounce might just allow you to reach those awkward corners that other platforms just don't reach.[/SIZE]:whistling:
#16
I have had great use out of old, milk and beer crates, they are virtually indestructible, best hop ups ever..
#18
Hot. These are a good deal at £30 instore or delivered. Usually 25 on screwfix, butI haven't one local.

Fast becoming an essential bit of kit in the trade, easy to carry about, and kick along - if doing something suitable.
#19
I defy anyone to actually hop up onto one of these

woudn't like to use this on a building site, it looks the same as mine and they are very slippery when wet .
#21
bought one yesterday, perfect for washing the roof of my 4x4 and also spot on for reaching the ceiling to paint. Tried a chair but kept falling off, and the wife wasnt happy when it was covered in paint ! :thumbsup:

Get some new boots. :-D

Sure, this thing has a lot of limitations. It is in no way a 'catch all' solution, but it has been more handy than I ever expected and would not do without one any more.

-Compliments steps to give a wider working range
-Folds up making it easy to store and carry
-Doubles up as a work bench
-Good seat on breaks!

In fairness, I've not seen these used often in all trades, but I'm an electrician, and don't carry work benches, or platform type things. It's great for trunking, conduit and drilling out fittings. It's also great for drilling rows of joists, as it is easier to move, and saves your knees. When you have to swap a light on top of a block of flats, this thing is 10X easier to carry up stairs than a ladder.

Most importantly, it looks professional. :thumbsup:

Duh!

All of these stupid criticisms of my post.:roll:

Having used these on site and having TWO of my own (since I often have two jobs on the go at the same time), 600mm wide is pretty rare - Mostly 700 or (mine) 800 wide.

The only 600mm wide ones (Except for cheapo's) are 600mm square.

If you are accustomed to using one, whilst looking up, it'd be very easy to step off one this narrow and as such is not much more use than a chair - Hence my comment.

If saving £5 is important to you then by all means get an inferior product but until mine get pinched then I will keep the ones that I have and then will replace with a conventional sized one. It most certainly won't be a 600 and I really couldn't be ar$ed to 'Make do' for the sake of £5.00.

I hope that makes things clearer. (As if I should need to!!)

Not really. The only point in there that isn't highly subjective, is that you might fall off? Seriously? :roll:

I think the idea of 600 being rare is way, way out. Besides, where can you get an 800 one for 30.49? Post it up! :whistling:

It's £30-35 kit for £25. That's a hot uk deal - be it useful to you personally - or not. :)

LMFAO the crap in this thread is beyond funny.

IT IS 600MM HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm a plasterer and use one every day, they are invaluable to us.

Just a word of advice, get the ones with clips at the ends with safety catches on, less chance of them folding on you when you are working fast under time pressure.

They are not slippery and I've never fallen off one of these in 5+ years, you get used to them and your relative position to the end/side of them.

Edit to say this is a good deal, hot from me.

"Duh"

Perhaps if you'd posted this (much more informative post) in the FIRST place you wouldn't have received as much criticism. We can't all read your mind! Besides, this is HUKD, what do you expect? Whatever a person writes on here, right or wrong, usually gets slated by the same unhelpful critics who never actually post anything useful or helpful themselves.

However, in the interests of fairness I have to say that I think you're right about the length.

There's a review here for the 800mm version at Screwfix. The reviewer states that his platform is 600mm high and 800mm long. That means that this platform is 600mm high x 600mm long.

Hope that helps

I use a chair every day and find them very usefull. To tell you the truth, if i didn't use one i would have to sit on the floor.
#29
This is very useful, people who are slating this obviously have never done any DIY work in their life so have no idea how useful platforms are. However I picked one up from B&Q for a tenner.
#30
Why is this expired? still shows 20.49
#31
Excellent piece of gear I have 4 use them for plastering.i have 500 high and 700 high all about 10 years old lasted well looking to replace the 700 ones but having trouble finding them.very sturdy and strong.
