A short informercial worth watching, just for the laughs.

What does it mean to be a refurbished ladder?

Be aware that this is only a 250 Pound rated ladder. As someone who makes my living working off of ladders, I wouldn’t trust any ladder that isn’t 1A rated (300 pounds). I did, however, snag one of the 22 footers that was for sale on Woot last week.

Does it include the scaffold or not? The pictures show a scaffold plank across the 2 trestles, but the specs say that it is sold separately.

I bought (what appears to be) the same one in June of this year. Scaffolding is NOT included.

The “refurbished” one that I received was marked as “sales demo” on the box when it came in.

That was great! Thx for the morning laugh :slight_smile:

Here’s a QVC Little Giant demo

I guess this was a Telesteps (never heard of it) and not a Little Giant.

Couple questions:

  1. The scaffold picture looks like the extensions come off and so all you need the “the plank.” is this true? Is there more to it than that?

  2. Other ladders like this have steps on both sides, do these?

  3. How does this compare to a similar like, Werner ladder?

NOTE: HarborFrieght’s similar ladder is 300lbs rated and $150 (or $120 with coupon) but with out the airshelf thing.

I recently purchased the Alta-one Little giant which was listed as “refurbished.” It had stickers on it stating it was a factory demo model. I’m thinking that they’re the ladders that are used in the demonstrations at trade shows. You could definitely tell it had been run through the configurations quite a bit, but still works flawlessly.

Per the vendor: A refurbished ladder is generally a ladder that was used for sales demonstration purposes and no longer qualifies as being new. It may be a ladder that has scratches to the surface of the aluminum or to the label that prevent it from being sold as new. Refurbished ladders meet the same high quality standards as new ladders.

I’ve had one of the original Little Giants for years but it gets very little use any more because it’s so darned heavy. As a 65-year-old, 150 pound grandmother, I was happy to see that this one weighs only 30 pounds. And I’m not worried about the lower weight limit because I’m absolutely positive that I’ll never be hauling an extra 100 pounds up my new ladder. :slight_smile:

not a good deal… costco has them NEW for $160.

  1. The scaffolding part is simple. You could make your own with a couple of 2x6 or 2x8 boards.

  2. It has steps on both sides.

  3. I have used the Werner ladder like this, and it is not the same quality as a Little Giant. The one from Haarbor Freight looks like a Little Giant clone, but I doubt it is the same quality.

First she says we’re going to make sure Chris is okay and then Kevin. IDK. I would be very leary about buying the telescope ladder.

I just got this harbor freight ladder today and it’s pretty dang good! They even gave me 20% off so I ended up paying $128!
