    The Orchard Ladder Is Used only For Hard to Do Heges.
  3. IT"s so funny to see here that something that is very common here(can pick one up less than 15 min drive) is not common back east. Then again, I guess California has a few more orchards than say Mississippi.

    So what ladder would you guys recommend using?

    I've been using the orchard ladder for awhile now, lol ... It does slide and move around on hard surface that's why I always get somebody to hold the ladder for me.. Thank god I have'nt done any hedges that are very high, only like 8-10ft high I use the orchard ladders..

    i'm beginning to think I should go out and get 2 ladders that are featherlites and run a plank inbetween the ladders..

    But what would stop you from taking a step back and falling???!?!

    Welp, I went out and bought another 16' orchard ladder along with my 10' orchard that I already have..

    I think I'll be using these ladders and running a thick piece of wood as my walkway so I can just walk across with ease..

    What do you guys think about using 2 orchard ladders and running a piece of wood on the steps?
