An orchard ladder is to the arborist what an extension ladder is to the electrician. And the difference in the two is almost as significant, for the orchard ladder balances on uneven ground beyond anything made possible by two- or four-legged ladders! The genius behind this stability can be traced back to the invention of the three-legged stool. Since the dawn of furniture, it’s been known that three legs give superior balance to stools that must cope with uneven surfaces (such as floors). In short, with one leg on a bump and the other in a dip, the third leg acts as a prop, nullifying the possibility of teetering, as occurs with a fourth leg.
For tree trimming, you can free-stand the ladder under a canopy to access up to 20 vertical feet. Or you can prop the orchard ladder with its wide stance against trunks with even the most horrendous root surface. Got any stories about trying that with an extension ladder? With small trees and shrubs, you can gently poke the third leg through the foliage or drape it over the canopy, allowing access over the plant in a fashion possible only with this three-legged giant. By customer request, we have a telescoping leg available for ladder use on steeper terrain.
*In the unlikely event that you see any signs of damage to your ladder upon delivery (such as bent/torn steps, side rail, crushed feet, or any visible damage), it is EXTREMELY important to note a brief description of the damage on the delivery receipt and refuse the ladder due to damage. You must document even minor damage on the delivery receipt and report the damage to use right away by calling (800) 525-8873. We will get your replacement ladder shipped out ASAP.
