Abru 3 Tread Stepladder
Advantages: Easy to use, lightweight, strong, sturdy, easy to open, feel confident using it.
We moved in to our first home together back in 2010 and had to wait a little while before we could begin to decorate or undertake any DIY because of having new walls. This meant that we had time to decide on paint schemes, test colours, buy pictures and tools for our DIY. This obviously meant that we were nice and prepared when the time did come to start the decorating or the DIY but it has been a little bit more difficult pinning down a decent length of time to carry out the work.
We did not buy these ladders ourselves but received them as a gift from the in laws. My father-in-law felt that they would be useful for us, despite my husband being over 6 foot, and he was not wrong! We have used this step ladder on several occasions over the past few weeks. They have been useful when painting our living room, when putting up photographs and when wiping over the ceiling in my kitchen thanks to a cherry tomato explosion!
This stepladder is incredibly light weight at just 2.6kg and this makes it very easy for me to pack up and put away once we have finished using it. The height of this platform is 0.58m which adds a nice bit of height, particularly for my husband who is able to comfortably reach the ceiling when stood on the top of the three rungs. I can also reach the ceiling on this although it is not quite so easy for me but I do not have to stretch either.
As this ladder is so light I initially worried that it might not be able to withstand my weight but I then saw that it can hold up to 95kg so I have no worries there also my husband can use this too with no weight issues at all. I feel secure when standing on this as the three rungs do feel sturdy. I am happy enough to stand on the top rung which is larger than the other two and very sturdy. I do not feel like this stepladder is going to collapse and I have been standing on there touching up some edges at the top of my walls in the past few weeks with no problems at all.
This stepladder opens up easily and it takes just a few seconds to open this out fully and then I usually stand on the bottom step to test that it is open properly and that it is sturdy before I start to use it. Folding it back down is simple enough and takes just a few seconds as well. I can then tuck this away in to one of my hall cupboards and it takes up barely any space at all.
Obviously we did not pay for this so already it represents incredibly good value but when I look online I can see that this costs just under £20.00 from Tesco Direct. This price is absolutely fantastic for a stepladder that has been invaluable to use when decorating our home.
This ladder is lightweight, sturdy, easy to open and I feel confident on this even when standing on the top rung. We have used this on several occasions just recently alone and have been very pleased with this overall with nothing bad to say about this at all.
Summary: A fantastic stepladder from Abru.
