Like several people who had questions on the PA200 FAQ page, I'm trying to use a MT series telescoping multiladder with a PA200 series plank. The answers to the FAQs on this page are confusing.
a. Wreck 1986 was told the 12" wide PA200 plank series would not work with the MT series ladders and to buy a narrower stage. The PA200 web page states they are compatible with telescoping multi ladders, and Werner does not sell a stage or plank narrower than 12", so this answer seems incorrect.
b. The FAQ from "Jack" states that the PA208 can be used with the MT 17, which contradicts the answer for Wreck 1986.
c. The FAQ from "Bimmerforlife" gives instructions for using a PA200 plank with a MT22,which also contradicts the answer to Wreck 1986.
d. Page 11 of the "Telescoping Multi Ladder" instruction manual gives details for using a single MT ladder as a base for scaffolds, and illustrates this with the use of a PA200 plank.
When I follow the instruction manual for using one MT ladder (separated into two supports) to support a PA200 plank, the narrow (12" wide) end of the plank fits inside the outer ladder section, but not the inner section. As detailed by Wreck 1986, the width of the narrow end of the plank is just over 12 inches, and the width of ladder rails is exactly 12 inches, so the plank will not fit in the inner ladder.
1) How do I fit the PA200 plank into the MT inner ladder section? Which of the FAQs is correct? Is the MT ladder instruction manual wrong? Has my PA200 plank been manufactured to the wrong dimensions?
