    Hi Oliver,

    I use the Hedgemaster Classic for my hedge cutting but I know others just use a normal extension ladder with stabiliser bar at the bottom and a plank tied/screwed to the top that rests against the hedge.

    Cheers

  • Cheers guys, will look into them.
  • I bought a pair of Hailo ladders last year and have been really happy with them thus far.

      I also work with Hailo ladders, having a curved stabilisation bar makes them brilliant for working in uneven ground...

          Hi Dan, I work with the Hailo 2x9 + 1x8 triple combi ladder, it's great for most size hedges etc, tall enough to reach the gutters on a 2 storey house, and not to heavy, they also do a 3 x 12 rung version, but was far to heavy to work with happily..

            cheers - you use henchmen tripod as well , adjustable legs seems a winner? if so which size ?

            im facing getting a few ladders after getting by with shocking ones this year 

  • I use Niwaki , lightweight tripods. Outstanding !
