I bought this ladder to install a ceiling fan on a 16' ceiling. An electrician wanted $ 255 to do the job I bought the ladder for $299 so effectively it cost me $44 to install the ceiling fan and I got a free ladder. The ladder seems wobbly as you carry it around but once it's set up it's solid the platform is very stable you forget your standing 10' in the air. When making purchases of this type I compare Home Depot prices with Amazon this time Amazon had the ladder for $400+ and now they don't even have this size listed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Guttercleaninghomeowner Works for me
I bought the 12ft ladder. The podium is at 10 ft. I use it for cleaning my gutters and for stepping onto the lower roof to access the upper roof. The podium is at the level of the lower roof. I just step over onto the roof and from the roof onto the podium. The podium works well because it provides extra space to move and adjust my weight, and overall the ladder works well because it's meant for people to turn and move around on, so I don't feel like I'm going to kick the ladder out when I step off the roof. I don't have to lean the ladder up against the gutter. It's a little awkward because of the weight and size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by MDP166 16ft Podium Ladder PDIA10 compare to PD6210
Purchased PDIA10 (16 foot reach podium ladder) to reach second floor ceiling and chandelier. Home Depot had best price at about $300 vs other sites/main company selling the PD6210 ladder (at least $350 or higher) which is quite similar. A Werner company representative was very responsive to questions, however had difficulty explaining the differences between these choices even with the help of the engineering department, therefore I purchased the HD ladder for a lower price. Had to wait for order to process, however it shipped directly to my house after <1 month. Podium is located 9'7" off floor, and thus allows a reach of 16ft. Step ladder had a very wide base for stability, therefore anticipate space to set this up. Podium allows large area to stand and work, this is well worth the upgrade price from a standard step ladder. Ladder when used on solid surface is very sturdy even with a heavy load. I will probably find a few other uses especially when winter is over.
-large working area
-lower price than alternatively colored PD6210 (yellow instead of black)
-wide base for stability
-wide base (must fit into working area - yes listed as both pro/con)
-Weight - at 6ft+ I could maneuver by my self, however I opted for help to upright and make major adjustments inside to prevent damages
-I will probably never purchase a regular step ladder if a podium/platform model is available

You cannot beat the price for this quality product. It took a little time for this to ship, but I can't complain because the info given to me at the time of ordering was accurate. Hard to complain when the item is delivered to your door for free. I highly recommend this ladder. It's exactly what I needed to access the ceiling fans and light fixtures on my 19 foot vaulted ceiling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by TimC Well built and definitely maximizes the reach
It definitely feels better to be on a 1x1 foot platform with another rail at waist level, than it does to be on a small step. It takes a little getting used to, but once you do, you'll be amazed how much more productive you can be with this ladder. Be forewarned that it is a beast, so make sure you have a place to store it.
