Title says it all really.
Looking to buy a set of ladders and this seems like a good deal, particularly like the way it's only 2m when stored.
Can anybody recommend anything better value?
Available from 4th July

I wonder if this is getting marked down because of the wide availability of telescopic, and more significantly folding multi-function ladders? OK, they tend to have a shorter reach (~4m extended, instead of 5m) but cost ~£50 instead of ~£80. I have one (that I think actually came from Lidl or Aldi) and wouldn't be without it. Whilst you *can* make a platform, even one with different length legs for stairs and steep slopes) with ladder sections and a plank, even when lashed together, they aren't as rigid as one of the multi-function ones. The same applies to using a pair of ladder sections as a step ladder. It isn't often you need three people up ladder sections at the same time. However, if all you want is a no-nonsense, long-as possible, extending ladder that will fit in a car - then a three-section ladder takes a lot of beating.

yawn

You'll get a slightly longer 2.2m closed, 5.2m extended triple extension ladder for £84 at Tool Guru (Lyte ladders is £88) but it's much stronger and much better quality than the Aldi offer. The Aldi ladder is 4.7m extended BTW.

I picked this up for £39.99 instore at Aldi on Sunday. They were marked at £79.99 and £59.99 both crossed out and then a handwritten £39.99.

The ladder seems decent for that price.
