A often takes more time to set them
up than it takes to do the job itself. So
builders tend to avoid using them.
Then, at best, they end up in uncomfortable,
dangerous, or unproductive situations.
At worst, they end up falling.
Having been in this situation myself,
and yet hesitant to press my luck any
further, I’ve always wished for a fast,
safe, and easy-to-use scaffold system.
For working heights of up to about
12 feet, The Bronco (ReechCraft, 2001
First Ave. North, Fargo, ND 58102;
888/600-6160; www.reechcraft.com) is
as good as it gets. This scaffold system
uses two tubular aluminum tripods
with adjustable folding legs to support
a plank up to 24 feet long
