Hasegawa Tripod Ladder User Guide
Hasegawa Tripod Ladders are designed for use on uneven, soft, outdoor terrain, and when set up correctly are the ideal tool for the job.
The feet of the ladder are clawed which enables them to dig into the ground, and the tripod leg can be adjusted to accommodate slopes and raise or lower the ladder height. Also, modelled similar to the Eiffel Tower, the users' weight is directed downwards and outwards, pinning the ladder to the ground.
The Hasegawa Tripod Ladders also have a locking chain which assists in stopping the spread of the ladders legs unnecessarily, and have optionable rubber feet available if you ever have to use it on flat ground or indoor surfaces.
All these features make this ladder a very safe choice, but there are still some details you should always remember...
Before using the ladder
1. Choose a ladder with the correct length and appropriate weight capacity for your work.
2. Inspect the ladder daily before using it to make sure it is in good working condition, with no damaged or loose parts.
Setting up and working on the ladder
1. Avoid placing the ladder on or near loose rocks and debris and take extra care around tripping hazards such as irrigation pipes or tree roots.
2. Always use the tripod leg. DO NOT lean the ladder against a tree or a branch.
3. When using the ladder on a slope, place the tripod on the uphill slope.
4. When using the ladder on level ground, place the tripod facing or beside the tree.
5. Make sure the feet of the ladder, including the tripod pole, are pushed firmly into the ground.
6. Always face the ladder, whether you are climbing up or down.
Remember also, start each day with a thorough safety check of the ladder, use it correctly, be aware of your work surroundings, and finish each day healthy and safe.
