Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 92 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Win, Win, Win 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. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value Needed this ladder to safely reach all ceiling lights in our church fellowship hall as well as projectors in the sanctuary. This ladder solved an old problem June 23, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great item Sturdy and safe and this makes my review longer to submit June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb Ladder for Work in High, Hard to Reach Places This ladder met all of my expectations. As an elderly person who still likes to do things on my own, I felt comfortable doing work 16 ft. above the floor while standing on the platform at the top of the ladder. Saves me from having to call an electrician to replace smoke detector batteries or light bulbs in hard to reach fixtures. Only drawback was it was difficult to lift and move between indoor locations without help. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. Pros: -large working area -lower price than alternatively colored PD6210 (yellow instead of black) -wide base for stability -sturdy build Cons: -wide base (must fit into working area - yes listed as both pro/con) Other -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 January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! It's too much for me to move alone but my son has no problem setting it up, I put socks on the feet of the ladder and just scoot it around as needed. It's very sturdy. May 19, 2015
