[Canadian Tire] Mastercraft Multi-Task Ladder, Grade 1A, 21-ft - $134

Looking to buy my first ladder (for inside and outside of house) and don't have too much storage space to have multiple different ladders. (Just realize sale ends today!)

Seems to me like a good deal. Comments seem to be mostly positive and it fits into compact sedan passthrough trunk/fold down back seats - package is 5.5ft long.

Pro:
-Versatile, all in 1

Con:
-Seems to on heavy side (~45lb)

Anyone who owns one and can comment?

Highly doubt it. Maybe if you fold flat the front seat and you have a passthrough trunk /fold downs back seats. Looks like a good deal nonetheless.

I have one. It's good for all the versatility but make sure you know exactly what you need. If you're using it mostly as an extension ladder just buy an extension ladder since this thing is so heavy. It comes in handy for stairs or just odd angled spaces

Oops - I meant to say it fits in "passthrough trunk/fold down" back seats - as it's 5.5ft long

I have the 17 ft version I bought for $150. Decently heavy and used mainly as extension ladder. My 17ft is a bit short to allow me to get to the roof so I might look into dedicated ladder to climbing to roof.

Great ladder for someone who wants to get by with only one ladder. If you have the space/the money, you are much better off getting 2-3 purpose specific ladders as this one is indeed heavy AF

The pros:

- It's versatile
- It folds up for more compact storage

The cons:

- It's heavy, significantly heavier than a stepladder or an extension ladder doing the same job.
- When used as an extension ladder, you have to extend it to full length first on the ground and then move it into place, as opposed to a normal extension ladder where you move it into place and then extend the ladder upwards. This means that you will be waving a long and heavy weight around in the air while hanging on to one end of it - not very ergonomic and prone to causing accidental damage as you smack into things with a ladder that's barely under control.

As I home owner I need to have one of these versatile ladders - and an extension ladder, and a stepladder, because all 3 have their separate uses. But I guess if you have limited space...

i find its too heavy for my needs after bringing it home, and is too long to move around in house.... will probably return it...
See one similar but max at 17' and more expensive in Costco.... Folded shorter and lighter with wheels

The weight of these ladders always outweighs the usefulness of the multi tasking. I have a similar one I got free from the grandparents and never use it as it is too much of a hassle to setup and take down (takes 2 people most times).

If you do not have massive ceilings in the house, I definitely recommend keeping an eye out for one of these for inside the house. They usually go on sale for $39 I think, and super handy around the house if you are working in a drop ceiling or painting, due it's stability and light weight.

I have one. I think its a bit beefier than this one. the weight of it honestly sucks. super annoying to lug around. better off just getting one aluminum extension ladder and one featherweight shorter fold out.

Yes, it was part of their 'big red birthday weekend' (Thurs - Sun). If your local store has stock and you find a friendly CSR they may adjust the price to the sale price from the weekend but this is very much YMMV.

Just bought 17ft version this week from CT on sale $119, much lighter and serves all my purposes well.
