Has anyone been using the Werner Podium ladder. I checked it out at Home Depot Really a nice ladder if you don,t want to break out a scaffold. I went on Werner web site to find out if the Home Depot ladder was the same as all the others. It is posted that the color is the only difference Still 1A 300#Rating Home Depot is Red Black all others are Red Yellow

I just checked it out. Seems like a good idea if your needed height is constant as the platform isn't adjustable.

These are all we are allowed to use on commercial sites here now, I absolutely hate them, theyre dangerous when you first step on the platform it wants to tip back.

Are you talking about the Werner ladder or another type. These just hit the market not to long ago.They are osha approved not some household ladder.It looks sturdy to me

A platform at 4' does not help me with an 8' ceiling
again, you can use the lower rungs like any other ladder. they also make a 3' or better yet, get a 2 ft. gorilla or werner platform for 8' walls.
If you're going to stand on the lower rungs most of the time, why pay $200 for a 4' ladder...or almost $400 for an 8' ladder?

huh? I see them on amazon for like $70-120 depending on size. Werner makes them but so does "little giant" and probably other brands
