What makes tripod ladders the best for cutting hedges?

Our tripod is a free-standing ladder with three legs instead of four, creating a wider base. We know that most gardens aren’t perfectly flat, and the wide-splayed base ensures the feet remain in firm contact with the ground when working on uneven terrain. The clawed feet also prevent sudden sinking or slipping, and the tripod provides stability on slopes, steps and ditches. This means you can work at height safely and comfortably. Complete with a grab rail at the top of the ladder, you benefit from extra support for leaning against and you have the option for hands-free working. With the tripod ladder, you can focus on the task at hand and complete it with greater accuracy with the knowledge that you’re not going to topple. The high grade aluminium construction enables the ladder to be durable yet lightweight and easy to transport. In order to make the ladder more comfortable to use, we’ve removed the rung above the platform, so you can tuck your legs in and avoid grazes to the shins. The middle of the rungs has also been removed to help prevent slips and falls while climbing up and down the ladder. As well as this, the double rungs leading up to the platform provide an additional level of comfort. The flexibility that these ladders offer makes them the best ladders for hedge cutting. The wide 7” platform rung and three fully adjustable legs with 18” variation give you the freedom to adapt the ladder to suit the task, so you can really get stuck in without having to strain yourself or overreach. Our customers range from household gardeners to professional landscapers, the NHS, RHS and even royal households. We think it’s safe to say that the tripod ladder is more than up to the challenge.
