    What kind of ladders do you guys use for hedge trimming that are high? ie) 8-20ft high?

    Do you use 1 ladder, 2 ladders?

    I have 1 orchard 10ft ladder and 1 24ft leaning ladder

    I was thinking of getting the little giant ladder and a platform so I can walk across...

    What do you guys think?

    I use a 10 ft fiberglass and extended reach echo hedge trimmer. If I cant do the job with that I don't want the job. I do not like heights that much.

    alpine,
    I hate hights, I would never do that. I would get up to the third step of the lader and get sick. Don't go fallen out of any trees man........

    Ya, I dont think I'm giong to take on hedges that are like 20ft high anymore..

    I learnt my lesson.. I just gave up and said the hell with it..

    I started stepping on branches and it starting cutting my legs and arms.. I said wh ocares and just trimmed the rest so I could go home..
