scafolding with planks


I was driving by a stucco crew doing some work, and they had what they called jacked posts made out of 2x4's that leaned up against the house and then they laid there walking planks on top of that, they had 6' and 12' ones. Has anyone seen something like this before?

Yep. They're called pole jacks or pump jacks. The aluminum planks are called stages or some guys call them picks. They are available in different lengths and widths with different options, railing, etc.

Around here they're called pump jacks. First saw them 25 years ago when my house was built.

......and they are not just leaned up against the house they have brackets that hold them in place.

You step on a peddle to "pump" your self up to the desired height.
