Yeah, - - and that ladder was stolen from some hard-workin' family man, - - personally, - - I think you're an a$$-wipe for even buyin' it. You 'contribute' to the problem.

Then if it gets robbed from you one day, - - you'll be back here cryin' the blues, - - as if you had even worked hard for it and bought it 'legit'.

Make sure you keep an 'eye' on that ladder, - - that crack-head may find out where you live.

In fact, - - if I find out where you live, - - I might just come 'take' it myself, - - what are ya' gonna do, - - 'report' a stolen ladder??

We wouldn't want that would we??, - - that just wouldn't be fair!!

I have a 24 and a 32 foot fiberglass ladders on the truck. I think I paid right around 400 for the 32 footer, if memory serves. I have a very difficult time setting up the 32 footer by myself. That's a friggin heavy ladder.

I just my first 32 footer. $350 from the local hardware store that has VERY good prices on these things.

As for the $60 ladder from wally world...I would hang my head in shame if I purchased a ladder from that hell hole of a store.

I paid $175 for a 6' fiberglass ladder tonight - I had a $100 worth of "points" from my local lumber yard so it wasn't too bad. I wouldn't consider buying a hot one.

I went to Wally World to buy a step-ladder. I saw many people in the store, doing various things on step-ladders. None of these ladders were the flimsy models that are for sale in the store. Does that say something? I bought my ladder elsewhere, buying the same brand that these people were climbing. :Thumbs:

No contractor worth his weight (pun intended) should be on any ladder less than a 1A rated. Regardless of brand. Not if you want it to last more than a few years at least.

I have had to use some Type II ladders in the past and they are nasty.

Y'all are a bunch of sorry sapsuckers.

The guys friend got a good deal on a ladder and the first thing that come to mind is that he is a black market monger. Obviously most of you are not familiar with this area. Please do a little research prior to incriminating someone.

Teetor, TMF is the one that brought up the "crack head" reference and I don't see him squashing the whole "stolen" suggestions.

I just speculated that it was probably hot. There were no replies after that to the contrary.

Repeat this part allowed to yourself.

The only research available is the guys own 'INCRIMINATING WORDS'.

No such thing in my book as buying tools from a crackhead, - - and making believe you don't know they're stolen.

If you happen to AGREE with buying tools from CRACKHEADS, - - who most likely STOLE them from FELLOW CONTRACTORS, - - then simply STATE IT 'as such'.

I've never bought a stolen tool, - - and at the same time have never had a tool stolen.

I like to believe these facts are 'synonymous'.
