How is a Henchman platform so safe?
Your 2' x 2' non slip platform is always level and stable because each leg adjusts individually (up to 2'), to compensate for dips, bumps, slopes and steps. Quick Adjust feet allow for minute increment adjustments, meaning no wobble at all. A feature unique to Henchman.
You are safe to lean because you are enclosed by guard rails. The guard rail restiction means your centre of gravity stays within the splayed footprint, preventing toppling.
Large flat feet which pivot of their own accord to the contour of the ground, will not suddenly sink into soft ground, such as flower boarders.
You can cut a broad swathe from one position because of the width of the platform, the ability to lean as far as you like safely, your reach and the cutting blade.
Every platform in this range has a variable platform height of 2' thanks to the adjustable legs. This is increased to 5' if you use the optional 3' Extender. Also, you can work from thigh height up to shoulder height, adding further to the range of heights reachable from one platform.
Add the Extender to increase the platform minimum and maximum height by 3' (1m). This is also often the best way to be able to tackle a broad variety of hedge heights - a smaller unit plus and Extender.
The framework is aluminium and therefore very lightweight. The legs are steel out of necessity for strength and rigidity. Overall the unit is very maneuverable for one person in most cases. You can always drop the legs out if you have to lift the unit up high, say, onto a roof rack.
Folding a platform for storage or transportation requires no tools and takes about 20 seconds.
Optional Trolley wheels mean easy moving over long distances or for those of a less robust build!
