What are tripod ladders used for?
The tripod ladder's unique design makes it ideal for certain specialist jobs, particularly trimming trees and other outdoor work. Three-legged ladders can stand up on their own, so there's no need to find a sturdy surface for your ladder to lean against. Tripod ladders are very light, so they're also easy to pick up and carry around. Tripod ladders offer more versatility than traditional step ladders, helping you to find a safe position to work from.
