Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessOwner Good quality and steady platform
Moved into a 7,000 sf warehouse and I needed something that would allow me to easily replace 4x8 ceiling panels and light fixtures. Did quite a bit of price comparison and this was by far the best deal when everything is considered. I knew I would not need to double-stack the units for most of my intended use but it was still the best value.
The pickup from Home Depot was easy and trouble free. You will need a full size truck or trailer for them to load it onto. Everything was securley wrapped on a pallet. After getting back the individual boxes (4) are manageable but still heavy because the units are substantial. After being unboxed assembly is quick and easy as the individual pieces are not that heavy. Everything was damage free and very good quality.
I knew I would not need to double stack the units right away so I assembled both units individually with half the safety railing on each one. We used it for about a week that way to rearrange items on the top of our pallet racking shelves - made lifting and moving heavy shelf items super easy and I actually freed up about 25% of my shelf space because the upper shelves could be organized so safely and easily.
After that I put the full railing on one unit and we have been changing light fixtures and 4x8 ceiling panels since then. Much easier and safer than working on a ladder.
After finishing inside we will be double stacking the units to install light fixtures and security cameras outside the building when it stops raining. After I am done at my commercial building my wife has a list of things she wants done on our two-story house.
I will never do with a ladder again what I can now do with these scaffolds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fackrelt Extremely Handy!
I am currently building a shop with 14' ceilings and the scaffolding has been real handy. It is a sturdy as the larger ones you can rent . It took me about 30 minutes to set up the 1st time and about 15 to tear down by my self. It rolls nice and easy and the wheel locks are easy to use. I'm 280 lbs and I feel comfortable climbing up and down and working with it at its max height. The only draw back is when the hand rails are installed and you lower the platform the access gates are covered bu the ends and you have to climb over the railing to get inside..

We tried renting one of these and for a month they were charging $500 (plus 250 deposit for a total of 750). I saw this online and could not believe that we can buy one for less than the rental fee. We decided on this as it is helpful when painting the house or fixing any gutters and/or hanging christmas lights. It is a very sturdy item and Home Depot delivery was extremely fast. Would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ozie product gets the Job done
Sturdy at 6 ft but tends to get a little shaky when you stack the units to 12 ft. I had to call because it lacked directions for stacking and couldn't believe the 2 inches of overlap when stacking would rest in place...just keep going because your second cross bars up top really stabilize the whole structure. I used to repair walls/mud/tape and paint a cathedral room, wash windows, sand a high seasonal porch roof...it gets the job done. A little shaky for people with paralyzing fear of heights

I convinced my husband we needed this and that we could store it in a space where we had an empty shelf unit. It arrived on time, and we received a call in advance with the delivery day.
We are painting our house interior and have 13 ft celinings in a stairway that has an additional 4 feet of skylight. And we also have an 18 foot living room ceiling. The exterior of our house is over 3 stories high (although this is for interior use, it is a quality product and sturdier than some exterior scaffolding I have seen, so we WILL be using it outside as well).
We put it to use right away and my husband put this together by himself (I did help put the wheels on, but if he had put those on first, I would have not been needed). He put the double scaffold together to paint the skylight. Very sturdy and quality construction. He used the outriggers to support the scaffold on the steps. We (my husband really) then took it down and put one level in the bedroom to reach the 13' ceiling peek, and the other in the master bath to reach another skylight. My hubby is AOK with reassembling this wherever its needed. He says it's quick and easy.
I am VERY impressed with this product. If it is secured properly it is very sturdy and does not wobble.
The gate is made of aluminum and adds a measure of safety.
I am sure we will get a lot of use out of this, to clean the top set of windows, hang curtains, replace lightbulbs or celiing fans, put up Christmas lights, etc. etc.
I highly recommend this product!! It makes life so much easier for the DIYer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Quick and easy to assemble. No tools required.
For a do-it-yourself person this scaffold will pay for itself very quick. I would not recomend it without the safety rail and outriggers as it is narrow. Especially if you have two people moving around on it. The bigger castors make it roll easily and yet are all lockable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Margorie Our first scaffold
Purchased to reach our high cathedral ceilings. It is narrow, so fits into tight spaces (like the space between a loft and upper ceiling). Assembly was easy, but does require two people, especially when adding the second scaffold. Like other reviews, we found it wobbly at first, but got used to it. Well worth the money if you have the space to store it, a limber body to climb and crawl for using it, and the time for the projects that require using it. We anticipate saving lots of money because we won't have to hire a painter or electrician for some very simple home repairs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stan Not quite perfect
As supplied, this scaffold is very wobbly in the long direction. I added two cross braces to the lower section which made a huge difference and made it quite solid. The mfg. should include a couple of 1x1x 8ft angle pieces to be bolted to the legs for this purpose.
The platforms are described as aluminum whereas in fact they are a steel frame with a plywood deck. They are rather heavy and gave me the most problems during assembly. I was able to assemble the entire unit by myself without help. However, a 12' stepladder was essential (which I happened to have).
