Sturdy and safe

Working from a height outdoors can be dangerous. With the outdoor elements bringing anything from high temperatures to blustery wins, and often-uneven ground beneath you, you’ll want a ladder that’s both sturdy and reliable. The Lyte Fruit Picking Tripod Ladder offers you this with its industrial strength aluminum structure and rear spiked support. Other features, including the channel section side stiles fitted with deep non-slip treads, along with the ladder’s rubber feet, also prevent slips and falls. As this gardening ladder is made to order, you can also request further safety features such as an additional interchangeable non-slip rubber foot for safe use on hard surfaces.

Designed for a multitude of garden jobs

Of course, while this ladder includes fruit picking in its name, it has also been designed for  many other gardening jobs. You can also tidy up hedges, bushes and trees while working on this Lyte tripod ladder.
