The green color fiberglass 8ft werner can set you back for 6-7k...but it is the last ladder that you are going to buy. Already made in China but the aluminum is thicker and rivets are bigger.


We used aframes (scaffolding) during construction, I still have 2 pairs with me but it's gonna be too heavy for my wife and kid to move around, at least with the ladder they can easily move it wherever they need it. Another minus for the scaffolding is what you mentioned, my wife wants something to lean on so the scaffolding is doubly out of the question.

Where can I get this Werner?

Thanks

Pare sayang, meron ako kinukunan ng metal ladder A type heavy duty pang gamit ko. Nadala na ako sa mga aluminum kahit pa sabihin 300lbs. Naranasan ko na nag drill ng ceiling so yung force ko plus weight nasa steps. Guess what happened? Ubos yung steps, buti na lang wala nabali sa akin. Muntik ako mamatay, sa kakatawa.

Ito yung old style ladder, medyo mabigat pero pang matagalan. Golden Dragon metal industries sa may mandaluyong ko kinukuha. May 6' at 4'. Ok na yun 4ft imho kasi mahirap gamitin yun 6' malaki kinakain na space. But i have both hehehe. Pag gamit lang sa loob bahay ok na 4ft.

Ricky,

Dapat kasi 4-32 gamit mo, baka naman 16RE lang gamit mo, pang DIY lang yun.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.
