Only trouble with anchoring the bottom of the ladder is you then can't bunny hop it along to save climbing up and down, now I'm getting older my knees don't like climbing so much !!!

I hate ladders, so try and use bales.
Either as a little stack like this:
View attachment 854718
Or for something like gutters, two or three high in the bale grab on the loader will usually get up to the height required when resting on the floor. There's an 8' long working platform, and easily moved along to do the next 8'.
Totally ridiculous, there’s nothing to stop you falling, tripping or forgetting how close you are to the back or ends of the bales. Another case of farmers cutting corners with h&s.
