    Yes very useful, I curse having a standard 1 leg adjustment almost every time it's out, particularly at one off job gardens rather than regulars where I know what the grounds like and where I can put the feet securely

    3 adjustable everytime for me, worth the extra cost as when putting them sideways on hedges and working on uneven ground you know that they will be level and firmly planted when at the top, I use a 16ft and 8ft both with adjustable legs and also with 3 adjustable legs fully extended you get nearly another 2ft in height. Just remember that when stepping  off the bottom rung as it's a long way down!

    Fully agree with Jon & Dave - 3 adjustable legs every time

     

  • 3 adjust legs are essential in our trade. The 1 leg adjust ones are for flat orchards. 

    Pro version is not necessary though if you look after your gear, or aren't 18 stone. 

    • i thought a SWL of 150 k was the regs now for all ladders and steps wether pro or not 

  • I purchased a 3 leg adjustable tripod last week. Used it today on a really uneven sloping garden. Hedge took me 3 hours last visit but knocked off 40mins today with my new Hendon 10ft. By the way only £309 and delivered the following day.! Definitely get the 3 leg adjustable.

      one of the best investments i ever made 10 ft henchman with adjustable legs compared with my previous scaffold system . 

      The rubber feet came free with order , seemed to be expensive for a set if purchased seperately , i feel rubber feet are essential for hard surfaces and soft ground . 

      I need to work out a better system for securing the henchman to the roof bars for transportation , not compatable with ladder clamps , rope not ideal .

      • What size van do you use? My henchman 10ft straps inside the ceiling of my mwb transit. No need for roof bars, ladders not exposed to the elements and it's safer

          I would prefer it inside but van not long enough plus security cage inside van creates restrictions .

        I use short cam straps 1 for each corner, thread through the cam, pull job done and quick release too.
