[Home Hardware] HH - 6ft Heavy Duty Step Ladder - 69.99

Pretty decent deal for a heavy duty ladder. Usually a 6ft heavy duty is about a $100~ish.

Picked this up earlier today from the Clarkson HH in Mississauga. They had about 5 left.

6-foot step ladders aren't very heavy, even the heavy duty ones. Probably 25 pounds max.

The difference is grading, which is weight capacity.

This one is Grade 1, rated up to 250 lbs.

A 6 foot fibreglass ladder from Home Depot is $65 but Grade 2 (225 lbs). Grade 1 is $115.

The ladder is made of fiberglass so it is pretty light weight, found it very easy to pick up from the store.

A good ladder is a for life purchase. If you have room to store it, I highly recommend one of the ladders like (every major retailer I think has a version of this ladder).

They extend so you get a lot higher reach....20' is ideal (equivalent to 10ft ladder). The wider base narrower top and weight makes it much much more stable than these older more traditional ladders. It's not light but it is safer.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

You want ultra lightweight but sturdy? HIGHLY recommend the 13lb Gorilla ladder at HD for $74.52. Not your dad's unstable aluminum ladder. About 30% lighter than the OP's Benchmark fibreglass ladder which likely weighs between 18-20lbs.

I own this one AND a 21' Little Giant. I ALWAYS reach for the Gorilla ladder unless I need something more versatile. The Little Giant is HEAVY but sometimes you need better reach or more adjustment (on stairs).

Thanks. I will look into it.
I dont like heavy ladders. I need to carry it walking around a lot.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

The 2 steps are AWESOME to stand on when you're working.

I personally can't stand fibreglass ladders, they're STILL heavy and I don't find any of them sturdy enough for my taste.

You'd have to be pretty idiotic or exceptionally frail to die from using a heavy duty 6' fiberglass step ladder. It's not very high so the chance of falling to your death on regular ground is slim. It's heavy duty, so there's not much of a chance you'll overload it with weight. It's fiberglass so you're less likely to die from electrocution (to ground). And it's a step ladder so the legs shouldn't be able to slide out from under you like an extension ladder.

Can confirm. If you don't need anything higher, the Gorilla ladder is absolutely perfect and the only ladder that I own.
