£199 bleeding expensive for a hop up and when he stands on it it buckled a bit in the middle that wont last very long.

Not going to last long, I bought a dura stilts quick bench about 12 yeas ago and still use it, everyone tries to have it off me on site, expensive but brilliant.

I've got a set of fold up ladders. Set them up like a hop up shape then bungee a plank across the top. Big hop up for high ceilings! Wouldn't get away with it on site mind.

fook that get a youngmans odd job you can get a hand full for the price of one of these........

YOUNGMAN ODD JOB LOW LEVEL WORK PLATFORM | eBay

had mine for about 6-7 years now and i would gladly buy another

Yeh think we've all got that type, i the point Mr Jones is trying to make is that it's a versatile work platform for reaching ceilings of varying heights, your not gonna board and skim a 9' high ceiling off the little youngmans hop up

i was just wondering if anyone had one. It seems to fold up neatly but is it too heavy and bulky. I have seen one on ebay like that youngman one but adjustable height.

f its a youngmans get it!!!!!!!!!!! my mate has been buying 'cheap' versions of mine since they first made you have a bench instead of a crate and he must have spent about £200 i paid £70 for mine i think and its been worth every penny.......... the only thing that goes wrong is the catches brake............ nothing that a piece of wood wont solve tho

I had one of them from refina. I had no idea it was so big. Its great when you are standing on it but to move around its too big. It wouldnt fit on scaffold either. wish i read the sizes properly. I thought i was buying a normal size but the good quality ones :RpS_blink:

those metal sheets you get with them are shite arnt they? I cut up some flooring to fit on the top, I cut it the exact size of the platform and just cut around the hinges so it cant move anywhere

I didn't get a metal sheet with it. Bought it as just one of them folding ladders. But a 6ft plant on top works a treat.

the metal sheets where ok at first but they started to bend after a while, then one day there was some off cut flooring that fit bang on so i just cut out for the hinges and now its dead rate
