I'm thinking it's time I start looking into these, my wife is asking me for a Christmas gift idea.

Can anyone give me a quick run down on this one? Good price? Average? This one supports 300lbs, I remember reading that the weight of the ladder makes a difference as some are a lot heavier then others.

Thanks.

I have the one below. Very happy with it. If I had to do it again, I'd probably get the 21' instead.
Price wise.... $160 is not a barn burner deal. <$125 would be hot.

I bought the exact same ladder a year ago. Used it to insulate the garage and recently to change all light bulbs and paint the house. Very happy with it. Compact to store.

I have the 21'. I wouldn't get smaller, it's nice to have the option of being higher in different configurations.
It's especially useful in stairs.

It is a bit heavy to carry around but it's not too bad. My girlfriend prefers asking me to get it in and out of the basement because of the weight.

It doesn't take much room to store, so that's nice.

I bought this few month back when it was $119. But ended up returning it as it was short for some other needs, I was unable to reach the foyer chandelier, I am still looking for a good price on 21’

This would be the male equivalent of a vaccuum cleaner for ladies as an xmas gift. :)

As always, 3 things to know:

1. The stated length of ladders is not their actual length - it's a rough indication of how high a typical person should be able to work while standing on a safe rung of the ladder at full extension. The actual length of the ladder is shorter.

2. This type of multi-purpose ladder is versatile but heavy compared to a standard extension ladder. Not a big deal for some people, but something to consider if you need to move it around a lot or store it in a difficult spot.

3. It's not as easy to use as an extension ladder when extending it to full height. You have to extend the ladder to full length on the ground, and then move it into place while holding at one end with limited leverage with all that weight waving around in the air. With an extension ladder, you place the ladder first and then run the extension up as high as you need it.

This is a reasonable choice for flexibility if you are only going to buy one ladder, but for regular household use it's worthwhile to also buy a longer extension ladder and a light weight step ladder.

But this is far from the best price these have been offered at, and the "regular price" is ridiculous.

I'd say this is warm... picked one up from crappy tire last year during BF weekend for 109.99. Roughly under 122.00 after taxes..
But yah if your looking to acquiring one it's the best ladder for getting in the garage rafters and and have never felt the safety of stability any better then this ladder I've ever used.
Le_arned to Churn now I use it as my hanrness.
Buy low sell high, always make a way to get what you want!💪😁👌

Hmm, this would be good to use for hanging Christmas lights and to run my extension cord from the backyard since I don't have an outlet at the front of the house.
