Portable Scaffold Sets Up in 60 Seconds
"Its sides are hinged, allowing the entire one-piece frame, made of 1 and 1.5 in. dia. steel tubing, to fold flat (only 6-3/4 in high) for convenient storage, and to be quickly and easily unfolded for use indoors or out-doors.
"It's easily moved anywhere you need it ù through 16 in. stud walls, and around the tightest corners and hallways," notes Menno Bomtrager, manufacturer.
Available in 3, 6, 9 and 12 ft. models. A person 6ft. tall, standing on the 12 ft. model, can reach to 20 ft. from floor level to paint, carprenter, do electrical wiring, etc. To get to the top, you climb up the inside of the scaffold.
Load capacity of the top working plat-form is 800 lbs. The safety cage around it measures 6.5 ft wide, 3 ft. high and 30 in. deep.
The 12 ft. model, complete with outrigger supports on each side, sells for $1,299. It's made of two 6 ft. models and a 3 ft. model which serves as the safety cage. The 9 ft. model, made of a 6 ft. and a 3 ft. model, sells for $699, the 6 ft. model for $399, and the 3 ft. model for $359.
