Extra Product Detail

Henchman’s Hi-Step Adjustable Platform Ladder makes working at height on unstable ground safer and more flexible.

Each of the Platform Ladder’s four legs adjust individually up to 2ft / 0.6m, allowing you to use the ladder on banks, slopes, ditches, dips and steps. 

The Platform Ladder’s feet are specifically designed so you can adjust the height of each foot within millimeter precision. This stops even the slightest of wobbling, keeping you stable and safe.

The ladder’s robust aluminium frame and sturdy steel legs provide excellent stability, meaning you won’t wobble when working. In addition, the ladder’s guard rails allow you to safely lean in various directions while carrying out your tasks. Combined with the non slip platform, you’ll feel stable, secure and safe, regardless of the type of ground you’re working on. 

It also provides great reachability. When standing on the ladder, you can reach up to 8ft from one position, depending on the size of cutters you’re using. The working height for our platform range varies by a minimum of 2ft (or a maximum 5ft with the Extender). 

The Hi-Step ladder can be folded flat in 30 seconds for convenient storage. 

Always be cautious of falling debris when using any ladder as impact may destabilise and/or damage the ladder.

What size do I need?

All measurements are provided with the extendable legs retracted.

Our Hi-Step Platform Ladders come in various different sizes. Each size allows you to work from between your waist and shoulder height, giving you more flexibility to reach various different heights depending on how high the ladder is. 

To ensure you order the right size Platform Ladder for your job, it’s important you know exactly how high you need to reach before you order.

For example, if you’re using your ladder to trim hedges, we suggest you pick a ladder that’s  the same height as your hedge. This will give you flexibility to work between below and above this height. If you need to increase this height for other jobs, you can extend the ladder higher with our Hi-Step Adjustable Platform Ladder Extender.

Measuring the hedge height before you order will ensure you choose the right size.

How our sizing works

All measurements are provided with the extendable legs retracted.

We have various sizes of the Henchman Hi-Step Platform Ladder. The height of the ladder is the full height of the ladder. For example, our Hi-Step Maxi is 10ft / 3.0m tall. The platform is 3ft below the total height of the ladder, making the platform 7ft off of the ground.By adding the Hi-Step Adjustable Platform Ladder Extender, you can increase the platform minimum and maximum height by 3ft / 1.0m. If you’re likely to be working with various different heights, buying a smaller platform ladder with the Adjustable Platform Step Ladder Extender is often the best way to be able to tackle a broad variety of hedge heights

Platform Height: From 3ft / 0.9m to 9ft / 2.7m

Standing platform depth: 2ft / 60cm

Approximate working height (waist level): Same as the total height of the ladder

Approximate working height (shoulder level): 2ft / 0.6m above the ladder’s height

Maximum standing height: 3ft / 0.9m below the ladder’s height

Storage dimensions: The full storage length is the total length of the ladder. The storage width ranges between 0.8m / 2.6ft on the 6ft tripod, to 1.8m / 6ft on the 16ft tripod. Can be stored securely outside.

FAQs about our ladders

It’s simple, really. Our tripod ladders provide wobble-free stability because all three feet always remain in contact with the ground. 

By adjusting each leg individually to counteract uneven ground, the Three Adjustable Leg Tripod ladder allows you to ensure that the rungs are always level. All three legs adjust up to 18 inches (45cm) to allow you to work on all types of surfaces, including uneven and sloping terrain. The ladder’s claw-like feet add extra stability, and stop the ladder from sinking when used on soft ground.

The tripod ladder’s standing platform provides a safe place for your feet while you work. You can also tuck your knees into the frame for extra stability, allowing you to use both hands safely as you work.

If you plan to use your ladder on hard surfaces or indoors, our ladders also work brilliantly when purchased with the optional rubber feet. These improve grip on flat hard surfaces and also protect delicate floors from being scratched by the clawed feet.

If you’re planning to use your tripod ladder at work, for example as a gardener or tree surgeon, then we’d suggest our Professional 3-leg adjustable tripod platform ladder instead.

While similar to our standard model, our professional model is made from thicker aluminium and is built to better withstand regular use and transit. This makes it far more resistant to frequent use over the years. Plus, for businesses claiming back on VAT, the extra cost of our professional tripod ladder can be easily recovered.

The main benefit of the Adjustable Platform Step Ladder is that it has more height flexibility than the tripod ladders. Each leg extends individually to 2ft, which can be increased by a further 3ft with the Platform Step Ladder Height Extender. This means it can be used for a variety of different jobs. 

It also has a large standing platform that is secured by a rear guard strap, offering excellent security for working at heights. And lastly, it offers high levels of productivity. It allows you to increase your reach without having to move the ladder very often, letting you lean left and right on the guardrail without risk of toppling.

Both the Henchman Tripod ladders and the Henchman Adjustable Platform Ladders are designed to be safe on uneven ground. Both have adjustable legs to counteract slopes, dips and steps, have a safe working load of 150kg, and are covered by our 5 year warranty. 

The added benefits of the Adjustable Platform Ladder is that it has a larger standing platform secured by a rear guard strap. It also has more height adjustment due to each leg extending to 2ft, plus an optional 3ft height extender on top of that. It also offers high levels of productivity, allowing you to increase your reach by leaning left and right on the waist high guard rail without risk of toppling.

In contrast, our tripod ladders are lighter due to their fully aluminium frame, making them easier to transport and move around. They are also faster to set up due to their spring pin leg adjustment mechanism.

It’s important to pick the right size ladder. If you choose a ladder that’s too tall, you’ll spend your time working on the lower rungs rather than from the platform. If you choose a ladder that’s too short, you may be tempted to stretch up and over reach, causing imbalance and instability.

However, the Adjustable Platform Step Ladders offer more flexibility when it comes to sizing. 

Please see the “What size ladder do I need?” section on this page for help choosing the right sized ladder. If you’re still unsure about what size to choose, please get in contact and we’ll be more than happy to help.

Yes, if you order the wrong size ladder, you’ll be able to exchange your ladder for a different size. However, there will be a £45 collection charge. 

For more information on exchanging the wrong size ladder, please see the “Delivery and returns” section on this page.
