I would like to be able to get up to the gutters / soffits on this two
story Victorian cottage and don't currently have a suitable ladder.
This wouldn't be for any extended work, just replacing a floodlight or
removing debris from the gutters etc.
I like the idea of the telescopic ladders from a storage / portability
POV but I have only ever footed a 3.2m one but I'm assuming I'd be
looking at something quite a bit longer to reach such heights
It looks like I can do those sorts of things I need from the guidance
... and I would be able to secure the ladder appropriately so the
question is really around the feasibility of telescopic ladders of
that sort of length? I'm guessing they wouldn't make them if no one
bought them and from the specs I've seen they could easily support my
weight etc (ladder max 150kg etc).
I really wouldn't be using such regularly but would just like to be
able to myself if required (or set tree climbing daughter up there
whilst I foot it etc). ;-)
What does the panel think?
Cheers, T i m
