Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by I didnt look close enough to the description We had at least four ladders when we bought this and bought this to replace them all. I am big and need every bit of the 300 lb rating so that part is great. However when it said 17ft. I mistakenly took it as that height in the "A" or folded configuration. We were able to replace three but had to keep the 12 footer we had to get on the roof by the woodstove chimney. This is 17 foot or just short of it when opened straight but only about 8 foot give or take when in the folded or "A" configuration. Anyway the capability to setup on stairs or uneven ground is a good attribute also. Wasnt exactly what I wanted but also not extremely disappointed either. November 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Safe flat ladder rungs for standing We replaced our previous ladder which had round rungs, with this17' World's Greatest ladder, which has flat rungs. It's easier to stand on a flat surface versus the round rungs and we feel it's safer. The last time I slipped off the old ladder I started looking for this design feature. It's the only one I found and it's both sturdy and comfortable for your feet. July 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by As advertised As previous reviews have said, it is a little heavy, the telescoping leg adjustments get difficult to work especially in cold weather and/or when wearing gloves. Also, the hinges that lock it in the open, closed or extension positions are not intuitive and require simultaneous pushing and turning of both knobs all while moving the legs to the next position all at the same time and is best accomplished by 2 people. Other than that, it is great for what it is. Tall, but compact; sturdy, capable of handling heavy payloads and works as a scaffolding, especially if you custom-build a surface that fits between the legs. February 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid product. A little too solid. This ladder does all it says it does, but with a caveat. It requires strength to use it. It's heavier than I expected, although I should have realized that this much metal would weigh a lot. It's difficult to make the adjustments -- more of a two person job than the demo showed. That said, it feels steady in use and is well designed. October 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Good and sturdy ladder. Easy to store. Instructions ok. October 14, 2014
