[QUOTE=kev711;956626]Whoa! that's sick! i never thought of the rolling latter as a drop in tower, such a good idea! i've seen pictures of the pvc drop in..it definitely makes a lot of sense. i'm getting plenty of speed on my drop in but the turf is a little slow so i'm going to put on some orange construction fence on it next. i want to avoid having to use water to add speed cuz i want to avoid making a mess.
any more advice, please feel free to shoot[/QUOTE
Yeah, it works well, the right height, steps already made,light, and very sturdy...as an added bonus, you have handrails, which are good if you are a parent like me, whose kids like to also take their sleds down the old mans backyard drop and hit the kicker.
Menards and Lowes typically have the parked around their stores for stocking shelves. You might touch base with the Manager to see if they have one in the back that they aren't using, or is broke (wheel bearing shot,etc) that you could score on the cheap. I have seen these all the way up to 11 feet...now that would be a drop in tower!
