Telescoping ladders in action: XSTEP USA LADDERS on the tour bus
We're always interested in seeing how XSTEP USA telescoping ladders are used across the country by professional contractors, do-it-yourselfer's, or anyone else who finds themselves in a unique situation requiring a lightweight, compact, and versatile adjustable ladder. Continuing our series on ladders in action, today we bring you a great example of how a telescoping ladder, more compact and storable than other adjustable ladders or extension ladders, can really come in handy in tight spaces.
One musician's national tour bus keeps an Xstep® XT-380 telescoping ladder stowed in the baggage compartment, used to clean the bus and climb on top to open up the airflow vents. Obviously there is limited space on a tour bus, so it's important for this team to get an adjustable ladder that can store away into a small space, that is easy to maneuver, and lightweight.
Easy to use and easy to carry, the XT-380 was the perfect solution for the team that keeps this tour bus clean and in good repair. It's tall enough to reach the top of the bus, and folds down small enough to fit in the baggage compartment underneath the bus. No matter where they roll across the country on this national music tour, their telescoping ladder is always nearby, ready for any job.
Don't have a tour bus to maintain? Neither do we! But there are plenty of other benefits to having an Xstep XT-380 telescoping ladder in your toolkit:
- Has a reach height of 12.5 feet when fully extended.
- This ladder closes down to a mere 0,27 ft when not in use, meaning, you can store it in a small closet or cupboard, or even in the trunk of your car between jobs.
- Built with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, the 785P weighs 32 lbs / 29.1 lbs, making it easy for anyone to carry from site to site.
