For $200 it sure beats the heck of climbing up and down a ladder.

The scaffold is a bit wobbly but still solid. I guess if the wobble bothered someone, they could replace the adjusting pins with bolts tightened. Then it would be as solid as a rock, but adjusting the height would be bothersome. Having a fear of heights myself, I found no problem with the wobble. It is fairly light in weight which is good for assembly and moving. The wheels are nice and big and the locks not only lock the wheels from rolling but keep them from pivoting. It sure beat, go up the ladder, then down, move the ladder 2ft and back up the ladder and down, move etc. I wish I had one of these years ago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dan I feel very safe when using this product.
This is a quality built, strong, and easy to assemble scaffolding. I feel very safe while using this product. Home Depot does not stock all of the required accessories for this product. If you plan on stacking multiple units, you will need the outriggers and the guard rails. Home Depot does an excellent job of notifying you when the accessories arrive for in store pick up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PinehurstDIY This a must for anyone painting crown molding or cutting in around the top of a 10' or 12' wall.
Some reviewers have complained that this and similar scaffolds are too shaky. It does take a few minutes to get accustomed to the movement but that can be overlooked when you see how much quicker you can complete painting a room.

I used this to get up to high walls (15ft) for painting. It made the job go much easier and quicker by not having to climb up and down a ladder as often. Also used when I repaired a celling and a high fan. It has paid for itself already.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scaffold OK with a caveat
I used the scaffolding outdoors for several days in the hot July summer sun in Tumwater, Washington. After a few days the platform warped and two end rivets popped out. I used two stainless steel machine screws with washers and nuts to do the repair and two C-clamps to hold down the corners so the platform remains completely flat while standing and working on it. The factory installs only two spring loaded angular clamps located on alternate corners to hold the platform to the metal framing and they are located not that close to the corners. It appears they are too cheap to weld two additional clamps and locate them closer to the corners where they might do more good. I presume the cycling of the hot Summer daylight sun contrasting with the colder nights stressed the metal and wood to the point of warping and breakage. I find that very disappointing. I e-mailed the manufacturer of my problem and they replied that I will be contacted soon. I presume if this product was strictly used indoors there would be no issue. On that note I would choose to recommend a purchase of this scaffolding. However, if you're using this scaffolding outdoors in the summertime you have been warned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PittsburghDIYer I should've bought this a long time ago
When you have 9, 10 or 11 feet high ceilings, this scaffolding is a life changer. I'd been using two beams dangerously stretched between two ladders for the longest time, but I finally broke down and purchased this. It was so worth every cent of the $199 I paid for it and the only regret I have is that I should have invested in it 8 years ago when I bought my fixer upper.
I love that the platform can be adjusted up or down in increments of 2". The platform is sturdy and wide enough that I have space for equipment like paint cans and trays and I still have plenty of room to move around, which means fewer or zero trips up and down for supplies. The casters lock securely into place to prevent movement while the scaffold is in use and are held in place by metal pins. There are pins to secure the rails that hold the platform as well.
The one complaint I have (if I can even call it that), is that it's almost too heavy for me to set it up on my own. I've been able to get around that so far, but I've been using it in small rooms where I can prop the one "leg" up against the wall to get the other pieces attached. The weight of it isn't necessarily a negative either, because the end result of all that weight is that the scaffold is incredibly sturdy and will probably last until the end of time or until the zombie apocalypse (whichever comes first).
Seriously, don't ever think owning your own scaffolding is excessive. For the price, and for as much as I'll be using it, it's completely worth it.
