Does this ladder come with the scaffolding? I didn't see anything in the specs about it, nor did I see where you could purchase it separately.

Asked by: Artfull18
No it doesn't But you can find it under scaffold planks on Home Depot website.

Are the 17 ft. & 22 ft. ladders interchangeable for scaffolding?

I purchased a 17 ft. for my husband and was looking at getting the 22 ft. so he would have more length & versatility. My questions is whether he will be able to set up both ladders on stairs, in the a frame position or extended and use them as a scaffolding system or must both ladders be the exact same length so the treads, etc... match up identical? Thank you ~
Asked by: MrsHart
You should be able to get both ladders to the same height for scaffolding use.

Is it possible to buy accessories such as the scaffolding shown in one of the pictures and a platform you can hook on a rung for a paint tray?

I understand those items don't come WITH the ladder when purchased but are those items available to buy for this particular ladder or do I have to find something from a different brand that will fit? Thanks!
Asked by: Artfull18
All of the accessories that are shown with MT ladders are offered as an accessory by the Werner Co. The accessories include a stabilizer bar, the project tray, leg levelers, steel platform, the dynamic hinges, and the aluminum platform. One of the most common series of planks are the PA200 Series Extension planks, however any platform that is 12 inches wide will fit between the rails of the MT ladder. The platform should be secured to the ladder to prevent the ladder and platform from separating. All of these accessories and pieces are available online or through your local store.

no. this ladder is only 14ft fully extended. if he's 6ft. he would probably be able to reach 18ft safely. Book says 17ft safety so...

17 ft. Aluminum Telescoping Multi-Position Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1811.
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 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.

I bought this ladder 3 years ago and the other day when I coming down the ladder it failed. I am no where close to the weight limit. the sides gave out and it buckled. Called Werner and they could of cared less. Instead of replacing the ladder they basically said take a hike. below are images of the ladder.

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.

Those less than 5 star are annoyed by the weight. Read the specs... Clearly states the weight. Why knock the product because you are too lazy to read or research. Last time that I checked, strong, sturdy ladders carry some weight. Easy to use ladder. I have a 22' Little Giant, and feel that the 26' Werner is just as good, and a few hundred dollars cheaper.

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.
