    Good but heavy

    I bought my first Little Giant almost 20 years ago, when you only saw them at trade shows. I still use it almost every day. Also own the 22 model as well as a similar Werner ladder. Although the Little Giant is pricy, I feel safer on it than any other ladder. The only drawback is the weight, especially on the larger models.

      I have 2 The oldest is about 25 yrs old. I bought it because I wanted a ladder that would fit in my work van. I've never owned a better ladder. Only drawback is my old ladder is so old I can't get replacement hold downs for the snaplocks. Very Happy

    I own it, but don't use it.

    I own it. I much prefer the werner style collapsable ladder. I own a few werner. An insurance agent literally broke one of the rungs climbing up my ladder. Now it just sits in my garage. I did use it every day for estiamtes for about 2 years though.

    Get a Werner.

      Hands down "WINNER"

      I have had up to three of the model 22's its the 5 foot version. Have 2 now and am lost when I dont have one around. You want me to work off of an old a-frame style step ladder, Never again, I'll bring my own.

      5'-10' step ladder (adjustable for use in a stair well) can straddle the top steps comfortably and work safely at 10 to 15 feet. Use as a 10'-22' extension ladder and fit all those into the space of a residential step ladder.

      • Pros:
      • lots noone ever complains about the ladder
      • Cons:
      • some people complain about the weight and cost
      • YES

        good overall

        This ladder is very versatile,. It does just about any job on the job site,but none of them great.I normally have one or two on every job,but they are heavy and a little cumbersome to set up. If you know you need a 6'step for the day you're better off bringing that but if you need a little of everything or don't know what you'll need this is great ladder to bring along. strong and durable. heavier but stronger than the Werners
