How WOOT know WOOTGOD shop for ladder today?
I got this ladder a few years ago from here for about $30 more dollars but without the “desk” and wheels. Feels like I got a bum deal now, but I like the ladder. The main thing to know, however, is that this ladder won’t replace your other step ladders - it is simply too heavy and a PITA to move around and set up to make it your one and only ladder. I had thought I could get rid of my plain 5 step aluminum ladder and my 17’ extention ladder and just use this one for everything. Not realistic.
For example, I have some ceiling hung shelves over my cars in the garage that in order to reach I need about 2 or 3 steps. Rather than take my LG off the hook on the wall and lug it to where I need it, then unfold it and lock it in, I actually bought a super light 3 step ladder to use instead that I can lift with one hand and in two seconds be up to the shelves. All in all it is handy, but it isn’t the end-all be-all I thought it was going to be.
I like mine, but had to keep my cheap fiberglass ladder for quick jobs. The little giant is just to heavy to get out if you don’t needs it’s unique features.
Why is it called 17’ if max height is 15’?
That would be a good question for the Little Giant people. Someone asks that question every time we sell their ladders but I have yet to hear a good explanation.
I’m sure wooters could come up with some good explanations.
Was your deal the one that included the step platform? I prefer that accessory over the airdeck since the step doubles as a spreader for the scaffold arrangement.
I’m assuming it says model 17 because with the air deck the total height is 17 feet, but the max height of weight bearing support is 15 feet.
The ladder in it’s extended straight form has to rest (or lean) on something. If your eve, gutter, distance over the gorge, etc. is 16’ 11" you are covered. 17’ is as tall or long as you can get. The fact that you can stand safely to only 15’ and are less than 2’ tall was not the marketing strategy. Also the government (OSHA) had a say in how far you can climb before you die. Stupid governments…
