When it comes to tasks like hedge trimming, it’s vital to use the correct equipment. Thousands of ladder-related accidents occur every year in the UK, many of which are down to using the wrong type of ladder. Tripod ladders are designed especially for gardening tasks such as trimming hedges, pruning trees and maintaining topiary, making them the most appropriate ladders for cutting high hedges.
The Henchman tripod is the safe alternative to a traditional step ladder which is not designed to be used on uneven terrain. The Henchman tripod provides a safe working platform, and will remain level and stable even when on slopes, steps or ditches. The adjustable legs not only offer flexibility when working on uneven terrain, they also allow you to access areas you wouldn’t be able to reach with a conventional ladder.
Choose the Henchman ladder and you get the comfort and stability you need to work on high hedges. With sizes varying from 6’ to 16’, you can choose the model best suited to your needs. Our ladders come with a 3 year guarantee, something you won’t find elsewhere.
The Henchman tripod is different from traditional step ladders which are not designed for use on uneven terrain. Three is the magic number! Provided you can get your tripod ladder to stand up, it is impossible for all three feet not to be in firm contact with the ground, no matter how uneven your garden is. The wide triangular footprint that the splayed legs create prevent wobbling. Complete with clawed feet, the ladder won’t suddenly slip or sink while you’re carrying out tasks at height.
To ensure you’re comfortable when working at height, the ladder design features a grab rail at the top, giving you additional support. You can lean against it to work hands-free and you won’t need anybody holding the ladder. The Henchman tripod allows you to feel safe and comfortable which enables you to focus on the task at hand without worrying about toppling or wobbling. The construction of aluminium means the ladder is durable, lightweight and easy to move.
As the rungs above the platform have been removed, you can use the ladder without suffering grazes to the shins, you can tuck your knees into the frame which gives added security when working with both hands. The wide 7” platform rung and three fully adjustable legs with 18” variation offer extra flexibility to adapt the ladder to your desired task. These are the ideal ladders for cutting high hedges because you can get stuck in without overreaching, straining yourself or worrying about being unstable.
