We recently took a pair of Marshalltown Skywalkers out of the box and had one of our programmers try them out. He had walked on the old fashioned wooden stilts with the handles before, but never drywalling stilts, so we made sure his life insurance was paid up and headed outside.
Once out there, he fumbled a bit on the first stilt while trying to figure out how the straps worked. By the second one, he was getting better. You can see that one on the video below, as well as some of his first steps on the stilts. He said that the more naturally he tried to walk the easier it was, and the spring loaded “feet” actually made a huge difference even though he didn’t expect them to. Overall, he really liked them.
I’ll let you watch the video and see for yourself. Also, this is our first product video, so let me know if there are any issues with the flash player we created or with the bandwidth available for streaming the file.
After a bit of walking on a level surface (the grass didn’t work so well), he was starting to get the hang of it already. Still, I think he’s more valuable working on our website than drywalling. After all, it’s guys like him that make it possible for you to watch the video and get cool tool related products.
