Product overview

Whether you’re painting, cleaning, building or tackling any other serious job at height, a quality scaffolding tower is essential for the enthusiastic home handyman.

With a wide non-slip platform you’ll have plenty of room to move around safely. The tower is sturdy with tough cross braces and outriggers for exceptional stability - exactly what you want you’re high up off the ground! The lockable rubber castor wheels make it easy to roll it to your next spot. You can even work on uneven surfaces simply by adjusting the height of one side of the platform.

This scaffolding tower has been robotic welded then fully hot dip galvanised. This means the joints aren’t going to rust or become weak, even if you leave it out in the rain. The rivetless, weldless joints in the platform also give it extra strength, so not only is it super reliable, this scaffolding will make sure you get the job done safely as well.

A solid scaffolding tower is a great investment that will last for years - saving you the cost and trouble of hiring one again and again. Order yours today. You’ll wonder how you ever did without it.

Comes with a 2 Year Trade Tested warranty.

Extremely good for the price.

Three houses completed now using this tower. The outriggers are excellent and the platforms are very sturdy. The bracing toggles need tape on them as a couple of them allow the brace to move off. The wheels are strong and the wheel brakes work well. Plenty of adjustment in the feet for uneven ground.

Having bought a reno project building 7m tall, I needed my own scaffolding on-site. The scaffold whilst heavy, is a fifth of the price of its aluminum counterpart. It is built well, and does the job well - great value.

The tower is solidly constructed and was easy to assemble. It did not have any instructions on how to assemble it. There were a couple of nuts for the bolts that hold the wheels on missing. Has performed well in use.

Great product, some minor fitting issues with surplus galvanising over the bracing holes, easily fixed. Should have a safety bar fitted to the top working platform, easy to fit a bar to bracing lugs. Would recommend this product.

Did the job

Purchased the 6.25m tower to do a 3 level house. It did the job. Good points are: Solid Wheels good quality Outriggers very good Arrived in good time and well packaged Not so good points: As reviewed by Stu below the toggles are a safety risk. They come undone and some are upside down. I taped them all to be safe. The top deck cross bracing provided no safety rail. Should be straight not crossed. No instructions or clear pictures to get started with. Just need a couple of clear close ups. Very heavy as expected.

6.25m Tower as received

Generally I felt this tower was value for money. However be prepared to fix the following issues. The description is misleading, there are NO safety rails for the top deck. If they mean the cross braces these end up at knee height in the centre which makes you feel very vulnerable up there. I ended up fabricating two extra horizontal rails (at waist height) Several of the pins and toggles to attach and secure the cross braces were dodgy, slot not centered. Some toggles were seized with galvanising, some of the toggle pins fell out, some toggles were installed the wrong way round, there is a right and a wrong way so that they can't self-unlatch but QC is obviously lacking. Some holes in the locating pins between levels did not align with the holes in the upper and lower end sections, I had to redrill these so the pins securing them could be inserted.

Very disappointed that there were no instructions to correctly assemble the scaffolding. Given the height of it I would have thought that to be an important component for safety reasons.

This is a great product.

Very good value for money. The galvanizing is a bit lacking in places. The correct number of washers were supplied, unfortunately three were the wrong size and too small to use. However these are relatively minor issues.

I read a previous review of this tower previous to purchase and it bought up issues of weld quality. I was very pleased therefore to note when I got the tower that weld quality is very good and generally the tower is well made and very solid. It makes it quite heavy to build so ideally need two (especially when getting up to the top) but good quality. The outriggers make a huge difference and should definitely be used. Wheels are impressive, good size and good for moving tower around but also lock easily. The planks are good but definitely not intended for more than one big guy. By memory ok for up to 160 kg but I definitely would not exceed that. Overall summary - good gear, works well, stable with outriggers - good deal

A great scaffold. Has certainly worked well for the jobs we had. Some small issues with the galvanising but nothing serious. No manual but it's logical if you have been around a tower scaffold before.

Excellent product and superb value for money. It is sturdy and strong enough for any household use and the modular form ensures that you can use it inside and out for a multitude of uses. Loved it so much - I bought two! (I actually sold the first one with the house - the buyer wanted it included!)

Solid scaffold and good price but does have drawbacks

over 4 years ago


Got this late 2016 in order to paint the house in the high hard to reach areas. The material in general is acceptable however, the welds are a bit sub par. It seems they need to work on the quality control. I had replaced 3 of the metal planks because the welds were incomplete on some joints, which was very unsettling to be used at tall heights. The joints are also directly weld instead of inserted and then weld which would increase the durability. However, when the welds are done properly, it is sufficient for the task so it does meet the minimum requirement from my uses. The steel itself seems to be relatively corrosion resistant, however, the same cannot be said for any of the welded parts. I notice rusting within half a day after a light shower on pretty much most of the welded joints. So the parent material they use for the weld is not corrosion resistant unfortunately. Over a long period, the corrosion will be an issue on the safety of the equipment. However, this can be easily "fixed" by either them using filler material with higher chromium content or painting over the joints with some metal primer or similar equivalent to protect it from moisture. The welds are also very irregular and doesn't seem like it was robotically weld though this could just be a play of fancy wording for advertisement purposes. I was not really concerned about look of the weld but more that it was properly done. Otherwise, given that you get a good set of properly welded components, the scaffold feels and is solid. I have given them a high rating despite the issues I have pointed out because their after sale support services were exceptional. They were very helpful, both the resolution support staff and their onsite personnel. Something that I greatly appreciated. However, this would have been a much more frustrating experience if I wasn't within driving distance of their Auckland store. I hope consistency on the quality of the welds is something they will improve upon in the future.

Excellent value, scaffold feels really solid and stable even when working at height. Auckland

Awesome scaffolding - lightweight yet secure

Sure bets using a ladder especially as I get older! The thought of falling off is not an option! Really happy with the scaffolding from TradeTested. Look forward to painting the house using it (well that might be going a little far to say I will enjoy painting... but at least if I am doing it I will be safe).

I bought the scaffolding for a particular job on my house. It worked out cheaper than if i had hired scaffolding. Since then I have loaned it to friends and family for all manner of jobs. It is light easy to transport and erect and with the stabilizers is very safe and secure to work from. A very good investment . Noel
