Safety is an important factor in pruning and should not be neglected. It is essential to ensure a safe stand on the ground at all times during the pruning operation. This can be a problem especially on uneven terrain. Before you give your tree a new cut, you should therefore definitely consider which ladder is most suitable. After all, with the right equipment, pruning a fruit tree in your garden is easy and convenient. When setting up single ladders, you should always make sure that the angle is correct so that you can climb the ladder safely and securely rung by rung.
Your trees are standing on a small slope, steps are an obstacle or you have large stone heels in your way? Often it is precisely the subsoil that poses a problem for the stable and therefore safe standing of a ladder. With a simple fruit tree ladder or a wooden ladder you will not necessarily reach your goal here. That's why Hailo also offers particularly high-quality products for these cases, which ensure your safety even high up in the tree care sector. For example, the Hailo S100 ProfiLOT is equipped with a so-called LOT system, which can compensate for uneven ground up to a height of 15 cm. This means that steps or natural stone steps in the garden are no longer a problem. The ladder is easy to handle with the aid of a foot pedal and can be continuously adjusted to the respective ground level. Crossbars with large paw feet provide additional stability and slip resistance. Depending on the model selected, working heights of up to 9 m can be reached. With the Hailo S100 ProfiLOT, therefore, almost no tree is too high to maintain or cut. As the S100 ProfiLOT can be used both as a single ladder and free-standing, it is versatile and ideal for a wide range of gardening activities.
