I brought one of these a couple of years ago, reduced to £30 or £40. Thought it would be great but been sat in the garden, never used. Its a pain to get out and set up, just not as useful as I thought it would be.
From ground to top rung 1m 53cm. Therefore that is maximum platform height.

Are these high enough to reach the top window in a normal sized house


Maybe on a bungalow.

Might have to get these, can think of many occasions these would’ve been useful over the past year. Heat
I have one of these, little bit wobbly as the diagonal supports are not symmetrical, but very useful for rooms with high ceilings.
Can someone confirm what the maximum working height of the platform is. The description says 'Work platform: 3.12m, Extension ladder: 3.80m, Double ladder: 3.06m, Supporting bars: 93cm, Wooden platform: 148 x 50cm, Rung size: 2.8 x 2.8cm, Scaffold Ladder: 166 x 94.3 x 172cm (approx.)' and 'Maximum platform working height is 3.1m (approx.)' but the it doesn't look that big in the pictures.


Just not sure of the 'Work Platform' vs 'Scaffold Ladder' dimension

I suspect the pictures are just an illustration and as per the listing : Maximum platform working height is 3.1m (approx.)

From ground to top rung 1m 53cm. Therefore that is maximum platform height. Add average height of person stood on platform and you get somewhere near 'working height'.

Thanks for the info - that looked about right and is all I need so have ordered one off my guesswork. Hope I get more use of it
We needed one to paint our the hallway / stairwell that had high ceilings. This was perfect to go around the stairs. At the time, we either needed to hire a person who would also need to have some kind of scaffold ladder or buy a scaffold ladder which is way more than £100 normally or as I did (borrowed it from a friend). My friend has since moved and she has not taken her scaffold ladder with her. It's not an everyday use product but super handy to have, especially when you need it.

I say never used, but actually it is set up outside my shed with planks between the rungs making a shelving unit for pots and garden stuff, without the bulky stabilising feet. So, in use everyday, available for work if needed.

You are getting more use out of it than we are. Ours is stored right at the back of the garage ... so mission 1 will be to get it out lol
How do you set this up to do the stairs?
One ladder on a lower step, the other on a higher step and the plank resting on both ladders
I bought one of these from Screwfix about 2 years ago and only tried the scaffold option once, it was a right faff to set it up and then it felt really unstable in use.

I think when working on height it is always safer to have someone else present because sometimes the ground / base will not be 100% flat.

It wasn't the ground / base that was the problem it was the flex and give in the scaffold structure once assembled but maybe that's because I'm 6ft 3" tall.
I have the Wickes version, used it loads for decorating and when doing a kitchen renovation, taking down the cieling, rewired the lights etc. Yes they do wobble a bit but you get used to it. Really good for doing the stairs etc. They are a pain to set up and take down but then so would moving ladders every few minutes. I know on mine or days for safety not too have the platform on the top couple of rungs so always read the safety sheet with them
The supporting bars at the base of the ladders are 93cm long may be too long to fit across a typical domestic staircase.

Its not an everyday tool, but I found it was much easier and quicker to wash ceilings before painting rather than using a step ladder and useful to stand on when lifting and sliding 6 foot fence panels down between concrete posts.
ooh thanks for this!
seems to me, if your doing the work. better to hire. for one off jobs.
don't have to find a hiding place. after your done.

All depends on how much work you're doing and how much of a perfectionist you are I suppose.
If you're a slap it on any which way decorate the whole house in a day kinda guy/gal then hiring is better.
If you're the type of person that spends a whole day on a ceiling because it's not perfect then it might work out cheaper to buy and pass it on or sell it when you're done.
There's also the added cost/inconvenience of collection or delivery.

I borrowed a friends, no use on my stairs as it was too big

on the flip side I used it to lift and lower some 6ft fence panels in to place between concrete posts

Am I the only person who just lifts and drops in 6ft fence panels? Not easy admittedly- but doable.

We have found a local supplier that makes panels that weigh an absolute ton - takes two of us now to do - the previous ones weighed about the same as roll of toilet paper which one person could do - I think that the toilet paper would have been more substantial than what the previous panels were
Does it come with life insurance?

The cheap flimsy ones get blown out if you sneeze too close. That's why I went for the recessed posts when I recently changed my posts. Still haven't got around to putting the rails in and putting the featheredge boards in... Ripped my bathroom out instead
Luckily I have excellent neighbors and they gave their blessing.

Fair enough.
Anyone looking for gender panels should try B&M stores with garden sections. Great quality panels at one of the lowest prices - really show up the b&q crap.
For anyone thinking of using on stairs - make sure your stairs are wider than the 'feet' of the ladders. We made this mistake - good piece of kit but may be unusable for stairs in a lot of houses.

There is a £6.95 charge for this item due to it being large and probably quite heavy
