Nice looking multi ladder. I bought the Mastercraft 21' one last year for $175 and while I like it I think I'd like this one better. The locking system and individual leg extensions both look like nice features

No experience on the Mastercraft one, but the LittleGiant ladder is awesome!

I am mildly afraid of height, but I feel safe climbing on my LittleGiant ladder, because it does not shake (due to its weight I guess)

Yes that's the one. I've seen it as low as the $140s. If the CT one was on sale now at $140 it would be tough to want to buy the Little Giant. Without doing alot of research I think the Little Giant is a better ladder and it's reflected in the price of $220. You could get $10 off that with the newsletter discount.

Hard to say, if you need a ladder like this right now the Little Giant is a good buy. If not and you're looking to save as much as possible wait for the CT one to go back to $140ish

I hate heights but feel relatively safe on the Mastercraft one. More so in step ladder mode. It's heavy duty for sure just missing some nice touches the Little Giant has. I would bet with either of these fully extended in extension ladder mode, that comfort level decreases substantially. I know it did for me when I was ~20 ft up with a drill in one hand. I'm not sure any other ladder would make me feel better though.

i tried the mastercraft one and its not even on the same level as the little giant. after trying the little giant as well, i ended up getting it. it's just easier to use, more solid, and reliable.

BUT that doesnt mean the mastercraft is a bad ladder, it'll definitely do the job and you save a good amount in the process. It's really a case of whether or not you're willing to spend for the quality of the little giants.

Thanks for posting, OP, it is good ladder. However, it has been on sale for considerably less; I bought ours (same model, I just checked the model number and the image against ours) for $165 from RONA in December.

The leg extensions are really useful for setting up on non flat surfaces. Wished mine ladder had that. Adding it to a ladder after the fact is not cheap.

If you're scared of heights/ladders, these ladders are super stable vs the cheap aluminum's or regular ladders as the base is much wider and the weight helps.

That WAS THE DEAL!!!! Even better than the Amazon prime day deal(without the leveller).

I would love to find a 17 footer with a leveller at a crazy price, to go with my LG 22 footer, 13 footer, stepladder.....

I have a little giant,

Warning it's heavy... for a ladder. Would be annoying to use for painting or small tasks around the house. I would say it's good as a second ladder. Your primary ladder should be ultra light one for everyday tasks imo

The main locking mechanism on the Mastercraft is a horrible f**king piece of sh*t. It jams badly, and you'll bruise your hand trying to get it it engage. The Little Giant is a vastly superior ladder.
I regretted buying that Mastercraft ladder the second summer I owned it.

I don't dick around with ladders anymore. My health is worth the extra cost of a quality ladder.

Agreed. I bought one (similar) at Costco. When I was trying to reach the roof gutter, at full extension, it was hard to put up and take now, especially in tighter spaces (spaceway between two houses). While I was able to do it on my own, a couple of times, I didn't get the right leverage and it almost fell on my head. Good to have an extra body around if you need the full height.

Great ladder. Super afraid of heights, but this made it much more bearable. Solid (and heavy), and bundled with the ratcheting legs made it super stable on uneven surfaces.

Price is okay. It was previously on sale during one of those promotions at Lowes where 2 can be purchased for $284.33 after tax. Regardless, if you need a ladder of this type, go with LG.

No doubt its a great ladder but it is HEAVY and hard to move around. I find myself reaching for my featherlite ladder more often.

The mechanism to lock/unlock the ladder is also a PIA, maybe im not using it right but i have to use considerable force to get it to latch on again.

For reference this is the version of locking mechanism im referring to: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00E1A ... UTF8&psc=1

I find my 13 foot Werner of similar design so damn heavy and awkward I cant imagine using this at full extension. That said, if it were free delivery or a deeper discount I'd pull the trigger. 17 to 22 foot is more versatile, I cant use my 13 footer on eaves because it's ever slightly too short .

I agree its solid though, no thoughts of it moving sideways or that shakey rickety feel of extension ladders.
