It's a Prime Exclusive Deal @ $151.13.

Previous to this, the lowest price on Camelx3 was $201.64.
As someone who works in the construction industry and had then chance to try one of these, I gotta say this is a flaming pile of crap. It was the most frustrating ladder i ever stepped on. The latches all jam after awhile and need to be hammered out. The thing gets in the way. After the first job site we had it on all the carpenters nicknamed it " The little tard" . Pardon my language but it was a nightmare. Never again. You could not pay me enough to have this on the site ever again. . You get what you pay for. Spend the extra and buy a real ladder. Never ever chinse on a ladder. Better off balancing on your tool boxes then having this thing around. It is literally a safety hazard.

It's a democracy so you're entitled to your opinion. I've had the 17 ft ladder for over 10 years and it's served me very well. I liked it so much that I purchased this one too.

That's because these aren't meant for the "construction industry". These are meant for residential use, where it gets used maybe 20 or 30 times a year on average. It's not meant for 365 day a year hard rough use by big ass construction guys.

You must have gotten a dud , been using mine for a long time and never had an issue with being jammed. I'm about 220 lbs. + weight of a bag of shingles up my roof and never felt unsafe.

The Cosco I have is model 20-21 TIAS It is 21', working load 300lbs, CSA Grade 1. It says "World's Greatest Ladder:" on the side. It is heavy and I somehow bent the rail on one side so it is a pain to extend it.

Anyway, bought this one. I have a smaller Little Giant that I have been happy with. Thanks for the post.

First time buying a ladder. Would 22 ft be enough for a 2 story house?

It's enough for my 2 storey house.

This is a great price and probably the best manufacturer for multi-purpose ladders.

Ugh - for a sale that I keep hearing is so poor I sure am spending a fortune. Thanks OP - I believe this beats the all time low significantly.
