At first glance, the 6 ft. Little Giant Microburst looks like a traditional a-frame stepladder, but there is nothing traditional about it. The Microburst's unique pivoting top cap and patent-pending Stable-Lock spreader system fundamentally change the standard stepladder model. As the top cap pivots, the Microburst's rails fit neatly inside each other, creating a slim and 3-1/2 in. Storage and carrying profile. The Microburst stores in nearly half the space and is much more stable than a comparable Type 1A (300 lbs.) stepladder. The Microburst's Stable-Lock spreader system locks securely in place, creating a solid A-frame structure with no room for shifting or walking. On typical A-frame stepladders, the spreader bars are the most important, yet weakest part of the ladder. On the Little Giant Microburst, the spreader system is the strongest part of the ladder, constructed of a high-strength steel alloy. Also, unlike most A-frame ladders, the Microburst's patent-pending design makes room for a wide flare on both sides of the ladder, significantly increasing lateral stability. It’s easier to carry, store, and set-up; and it’s stronger and safer than any other comparable A-frame ladder.

  • Store in nearly half the space of your traditional one-sided a-frame stepladder
  • Enjoy the unmatched stability and strength of patent-pending stablelock spreader bars
  • Hold both sides of the ladder or tuck it under your arm for the easiest carry in the industry
  • Wide-flared rear leg for stability

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Is thin, not lightweight Thin, but seems sturdy, exactly what I needed! I didn't know how that could be 22# as the writeup says; it's not, but it weighs what you expect a ladder to weigh. I would order it again, though in most cases a thin one isn't necessary. Home Depot did not have ladder in stock, mail order was fast! October 4, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This ladder is very sturdy and light weight. Just what I was looking for as a gift for my husband! Great gift idea for my DIYer! Safety always first, and this ladder provides a safe means to do all those odd jobs that need a ladder. August 6, 2013
