The pins in the latter feel very loose. Are they designed like this?

Answer: 
My ladder is not handy. Therefore I do not know how they feel (loose as you say). They do not operate as though they are loose. It takes quite a bit of pressure to operate the pins - even when there is little pressure on them. With lots of pressure on the pins they are almost impossible to operate. If you have not already purchased the ladder, It (the 22 foot version) is quite heavy.

Answer: 
There needs to be some play or the pins would be too tight to adjust. Once they are in place I don't have any concern over the stability of the ladder.

MT-26 MAXIMUM REACH HEIGHT

This question is from 26 ft. Aluminum Telescoping Multi-Position Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating
Asked by
Florida

September 13, 2016
In step ladder configuration, which is the maximum working reach height, 15 feet 1 inch or 13 feet for the WERNER Model MT-26 ladder?

Please note: The difference of 2 feet is critical to my application. There is conflicting information as to maximum reach height between WERNER website (15 feet 1 inch) and responses seen at here (13 feet). I tend to agree with WERNER site as given the standard rule of 4 feet above maximum Model MT-26 step ladder height of 11 feet; you would arrive at approximately 15 feet.

17 ft. Aluminum Telescoping Multi-Position Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1778.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Ladder This is a very useful ladder. It's very strongly-made and has nice widely-spaced feet; I never feel at all unsafe when I'm on it. Most of the time so far I have used it as a small step ladder, but I've also extended it to reach the raised ceiling in one of our rooms and opened it out into a regular ladder to climb onto our roof. I particularly like the ease with which it adjusts and the solid feel of the adjustment latches. You may need to be aware that it's heavy, but I guess that's a by-product of its strong construction. I have no regrets at all about buying this ladder. It's a quality product that I'd completely recommend to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish...... understand, there is no warranty at all. I always wanted a multi-function ladder, they are incredibly useful and adaptable. But... after 4 months of owning this ladder and about 5 uses the retention spring on one hinge lock broke and the knob on the other hinge lock cracked and is ready to break into pieces. This ladder has had no rough handling or rough use. HD has told me "sorry it's over the 90 day return period so you can't exchange it" and Werner tells me I have to buy replacement parts. I now have a $150 ladder that's almost useless after 4 months and 5 uses. Next time I'll just buy a regular ladder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile ladder! The ladder is very stable and comfortable to be on. Because of its size it is better handled by 2 people. This is our second one of these and we plan to use it to make scaffolding to build our house. We have been using our first one for about 3 years and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Step Ladder Ever I own three of these ladders one 26' and two 22' purchased as needed. As an exterior contractor the ability to set up on uneven surfaces is important, this product fills the bill. I've owned my 26' for nine years, it's been used hard and still performs well. In my opinion these ladders are studier than the competition and at a better price. The wide footing makes them very safe as a step or extension ladder. Versatile, sturdy, safe, and a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy but Solid I had another aluminum multi-position ladder for years but a part finally broke and there were no parts available. After looking at everything available, and talking to friends who had them, I settled on this one. It's kind of heavy to be carrying around much, but is rock solid when in use. I'm 6'3" and around 250#. I set it up to reach some lights that are 10' up and was very happy that it felt so solid. I'd buy it again!

As a new home owner I thought that maybe this was a bit too much ladder for me. After replacing batteries in smoke detectors at the top (ugh) of a very high vaulted ceiling, cleaning gutters, hanging Christmas lights and finally being able to reach some difficult spots in the garage it's clear that this ladder is an investment and a necessity. With only 4 months of ownership it has proven invaluable. Our driveway is also slightly slanted, making a normal A-frame ladder less than ideal for accessing the roof at the front of our house. With the ability to extend each side of this ladder to different heights, the driveway grade was a non-point and I actually felt very secure on the uneven surface. Even hard to reach places above stairs and steps are easily overcome with the variable side extension capability. Pros: Weight Craftsmanship Durability Versatility Cons: None yet

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Compact and Versatile I have one these ladders almost 9 years and I would easily be using it several times a week, if not several times a day. I really like it because it has a good solid and stable feel to it and I always feel safe on it. A lot of my customers have even commented about its robust appearance and how easy it can adapt to my needs and still fold up nice and compact. Best ladder I have ever owned.
