    Default skywalker stilts


    Seriously thinking about spending over 200 on marshallton skywalker stilts. We do tape joint, sheeting and very occasional suspended ceiling work. reckoned this was a good place to ask whether or not they are worth the money and would like to hear your opinions.

    I have used them on a 2.7 metre high ceiling and thought they were great, (once I got the hang of it) but I dont think they were made by Marshalltown. On a standard 2.35 - 2.4 m high ceiling I dont need them as I am over 6 foot tall and will still happily use an upturned crate for extra height if I need it when theres no H&S guys on site.
    I worked with 2 midgets on a site last year who were hanging sheets and they crashed the ceilings out in no time as they were both wearing stilts. If you need them and they would make your job easier, I think you should buy.

    If you are

    too short
    have the money to spend
    the work to justify buying them
    and dont want to come home with a sore neck and back every night.

    Buy them. I recommend you shop around and look at similar brands as they can be bought for less than 200.

    Let me Google "Marshalltown Skywalker" for you
    Jesus loves you........ everyone else thinks you're an arsehole.
