We got all of our rolling ladders from the Putnam Rolling Ladders Co.  They're all more than 20 years old and in fantastic shape.

Subject: I need help finding a better ladder/lift

**I apologize for cross-posting**

I've got an older, rickety ladder that can't get me high enough, nor is it stable.

I need something for 7 shelves which is about 93 inches. Aisles (compact
shelving) are ~36 inches wide. 

Any web sites that I should check out?  Or does anyone have a ladder they love, if so, where did you get it?

I am open even to hydraulic lift of some kind too.  I really, really want a ladder or hydraulic lift that has a platform at the top so I can go up and pull a box off the shelf and onto the platform.  Then, either bring the box down, or do a retrieval, right on the platform and put the box back.  But my aisles are so narrow, it's going to be hard to find something like that.  I realize the platform at the top (attached to the top of a ladder), will only work for boxes at the top, but it's nice not having to bring a box all the way down to work on it, but to have that platform up there for those times it works.

I'm not sure how a hydraulic lift would work, other then the obvious (they go up, they come down), but most anything would be better then what I have now.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
