yippeeee! i got my LG standoffs in the mail lastweek and tried them
out for the first time today. THEY ROCK!
i believe the standoffs create the most safest environment
for ladder work. As you can see by the pictures that the ladder
is about 2feet from the building which allows me to stand
on the higher rungs safely without losing balance.
the extra surface space up there allow me to hang rags,
clip on screens or anything else to keep my hands free.
The only drawback? its freekin heavy, I had to lug that thing around 4 sides of that house, that is why im looking forward to getting my sectionals shipped out hopefully this week.
one thing is for sure though, I will have both ladders in my van at all times.
on the bottom picture i was easily able to reach the top windows by standing on the second to the last rung, even though the bottom awnings were opened. without the standoffs I would have to extend the ladder to the top of the windows which is more work playing with the ladder.
not sure how the sectionals would have worked on that bottom picture but one thing for sure is that it would not have been as safe as the LG with standoffs.
Have you seen the two senior citizens in the Little Giant infomercial? Either they are doing Crossfit 6 days a week or are taking some kind of performance enhancing drug, I can barely drag that heavy thing out of my trailer.
$40 on amazon w/ free shipping. I bought the leveler originally with the ladder and never used it once, it cant even level you off on a set of stairs thats how useless the LG leveler is. not sure if anyone has used a 3rd party leveler with the LG
Now he’ll have a little giant AND sectionals. Unstoppable combination. Yes, the sectionals are great, but you can’t use them for dusting ceiling fans, cleaning chandeliers and other A-frame required duties.
I definitely think it’s a bonus to the homeowner when the window cleaner can put new lightbulbs in the high lighting fixtures while they’re at the job - why call another contractor for a few light bulbs?
