Tripod Ladders – 8 foot

The 8 foot aluminum tripod ladder most preferred by Growers and Workers.

The 8 foot Tallman tripod step ladder is built of lightweight tempered aluminum and designed for ease of handling, longevity, and proven for years of trouble-free service. Each step is braced for maximum safety and uniform flexing on uneven ground, and all parts have been interchangeable since 1954. Parts are readily available in the rare event that you might need one.

Wooden ladders of this type have been available for years, but they are heavy (especially when wet), they leave splinters in your hands, and they constantly need repairs, maintenance, and tender loving care. They also swell in the rain and became loose when they dry out, needing tightening several times a year.

These 8 foot aluminum tripod ladders have earned the reputation as being the best quality and longest lasting orchard ladder on the market, at the most reasonable cost. The 8 foot tripod ladder design is perfectly engineered with the third leg made so that it can be swung out and inserted between tree branches for fruit picking or pruning,…all kinds of projects where you need a ladder on the ground, and lightweight to move around. Normal four legged ladders are just too unstable on uneven soil, but a Tallman Ladder will give you the stability and confidence to safely get the job done.

They are crafted from the finest materials and workmanship, and the unique design makes a strong product for years of service. Specially Designed with Strong Top Section Rigid Steel Hinges and a Heavy Duty Tempered 3rd Leg. The specially made quality slip resistant steps, with dimples are built into every step on every ladder.

SAFETY NOTE: Use the right tool for the job at hand. The Tripod Orchard Ladder is designed for orchard and landscape maintenance use only, where it is used on soil or turf type surfaces. The feet and pole of the Tripod Ladder do not have rubber feet, and cannot be used on hard surfaces such as floors, concrete, pavement, etc.. There also is not a spreader bar or chain between the main frame of the ladder and the third leg (pole) to keep it from spreading. All three points that come into contact with the ground depend on slight penetration of the turf or soil to remain stable. DO NOT USE on hard surfaces as slippage may result in injury.

These are not tested and rated like a normal ladder because they are for specialty use. The Tallman Ladder Company estimates that a normal sized worker with a picking bag is around 250 lbs., and they have never seen a failure at this rating.

    A ninety one year old man like me likes to feel safe when pruning fruit trees. This one did that for me! With three points on uneven ground in never wobbles.

    This ladder seemed less expensive than a lot of other places. We have LOTS of 4 legged ladders but we bought this one for our cabin which has very uneven ground and it works great. We no longer have to put something under the two legs for leveling. But we’ve also used it at home in place of some of our other ladders. We are very happy with it.

    I specifically wanted a tall ladder to get up high in several fruit trees, both for picking the fruit and for trimming the trees. I was surprised how sturdy and safe the ladder is. The third leg is easy to put through the branched so that I can climb up into the center of a tree. The spread of the two legs on the other side of the ladder contribute to the safety of the ladder.
