Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DepotDenizen Even better than it looks!
The 8-foot ladder has one BIG advantage over the regular 8-footer they don't tell you about (I compared a neighbor's on the same job). Not only is the platform amazingly useful and safe, but that little extension at the top adds 10 inches to the total height of the ladder! This means that instead of having the top platform just above your knees, and below your reach to steady yourself, you have a perfectly positioned handle to hold, and to support your hips. Changing bulbs on a 12-foot ceiling was a little nervous with a regular 8-footer, but with this, it's MUCH safer and more comfortable.
Of course, the benefits of the platform are as good as everyone says, but the added height of the grab handle (with its handy tool-holding apertures) multiplies the benefits of this ladder.
Note that if you're storing it in tight places, the 8-foot Podium ladder is nearly a foot longer than the 8-foot regular stepladder.

problem....my smoke alarm located on a 13 foot ceiling keeps beeping.
How to replace battery.....Call someone with 12 foot ladder.....rent ladder $50.00...how to transport...build sturdy platform.
solution....checked all on line sources (e-bay, amazon, lowes, home depot.) for ladder.
Found podium ladder system at all....Home Depot beat the price by $50.00. Delivered to store free within 10 days. Ladder fit nicely in My Toyota Sienna with 8" to spare.
No more beeps....Bonus.....I can now reach tall windows and change light bulbs. Safety rail is the best.
One of those things, that I didn't know existed, but sure glad I found it.
considering buying shorter podium ladder for use where this ladder to tall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ironhead3fan Just what I needed
I needed a taller ladder for the high ceilings in a house I just purchased. I also do not like heights, so what to do. I love the idea of a podium ladder, it feels very stable when working from the podium. That is pretty important to me. Had to order it online and wait for a few weeks for it, but it was just what I needed to maintain my household with tall ceilings inside the house and outside in my Butler building. While a bit on the expensive side, I believe you get what you pay for in this case. Werner makes a great product, and I would not hesitate to purchase another Werner product.

Be prepared. Sure, it's the motto of the Boy Scouts but it needs to be applied here because all of your friends and neighbors will be asking, "Can I borrow that?" It is the ladder that will be the envy of the entire neighborhood. I've owned many, many ladders and this is the best. ladder. ever. It's strong, sturdy and worth every penny. You will not regret this purchase.

Quality ladder. Light enough for one man to carry. Due to the platform and guard rail you feel very safe when using it. Plus with free delivery, it was a no brainer to purchase it from Home Depot.

I ordered this ladder to do work on my home but failed to realize that I only have 9' ceilings, so it was way too big for my intended use. I donated it to my church youth group who during summers rehabs homes for the needy. I went back and purchased a 3' version of the same ladder and it's perfect. When standing on the platform the waist support provide necessary support to free both hands for work. I couldn't be more pleased..
