The only 4 leg ladder we have is a 14ft one, its a pig. otherwise we use 3 leg red top ladders, they are the best, I find myself almost eatting it when i scamper up a 4 leg ladder. But there is some guys who will not even look at a 3 leg ladder. So maybe it is a western thingwhen i worked in wyo. and montana we used 3-legged step ladders. never saw them before. i'm from ga. really liked using them. here we use only 4-leg ladders. is this a " western " thing ? anybody here in the south/ east use the 3-leg ? paul
I'd like to see a picture of a three legged ladder, I never heard of such a beast. I ve seen a few three legged dogs, and a porno once were a guy looked like he had three legs but no ladder.well, i've used both and given the choice i'd take the 3 every time. BUT its not my choice and i just have to use whatever the co. buys.
It's definitely a west coast thing. I too prefer them once I got past being confused.I'd like to see a picture of a three legged ladder, I never heard of such a beast. I ve seen a few three legged dogs, and a porno once were a guy looked like he had three legs but no ladder.
They dont have a tendency to 'walk' like a 4-leg ladder does. I've gone 3 steps up a 6-footer and had the thing shift because not all four legs are solidly on the floor. Having only 3 legs completely prevents that from happening.
After you get over how they look and what you think might happen, you'll be a changed man. Climb up one and you'll be surprised at how superior they are in many ways over 4-legged ladders. I have one old wooden 8' red top brand 3-legged ladder that I used for when I'm going to be working on dirt or gravel for a long time. Out east here they call them "orchard ladders".
Yup, my dad bought this one to do some painting.Out east here they call them "orchard ladders".
