Answer: 
This is a folding ladder. It is a 10-ft length ladder that must be cut off at the bottom with a hacksaw for proper length if less than 10-ft. Feet are included that bolt onto the legs where they are cut off so that you have a level, rubber-padded end to the cut areas.

Unmodified, no. But is doable. I'm sure the manufacture doesn't recommend the following modifications to allow it to work. I did make the mistake of not measuring the height beforehand... I mean the ceiling seems like a normal height to me!
Anyway, my ceiling measured 91" (course I found this out after everything else was done). Here is how I resolved my mistake. Cut the ladder just below the highest step. This makes it easier to work with. Then drill out the rivets on the steps. You will need to re-install the step higher up since it is important for the stability, otherwise the legs could kick out. You'll need to re-cut the legs so that the feet will slide all the way up to the hinge. You need to cut the legs at the angle of the foot. Also need to ensure to cut high enough that the rubber on the inside doesn't stop the leg from going all the way up. Re-install the step by using aluminum rivets. Secure the feet onto the bottom and you should be good to go. I'm a big guy (slightly over the 375lb limit..) and tested the ladder and it feels very secure.
My install prior to the this last step went pretty smooth. Had wooden attic stairs before. The opening was 1 inch too wide, so just added a 1x4 to make the opening smaller. I did cheat on the securing the unit to the header. I only put the 2 decking screws into the header and skipped the other deck screws and did the 4 lag screws into the header first. I wanted to make sure it didn't move and I wanted to make it square after the header was locked in. Then I squared it up with the other wood screws before putting the other lag screws in.
Tip on removal of existing pull down. Disassemble the existing stairs in smaller chunks, so you're not having to deal with the entire weight of the original stairs at once. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. You have to trim the bottom to fit. With the ladder down and the bottom section folded up, you can measure to the floor to obtain the necessary length for the bottom section. I have a sawsall so it wad very easy to trim the bottom to fit.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 142 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Should have bought this long ago We have a HUGE 17x36 loft above our new garage but plans call for a standard stairway someday to reach it. After 4 years of using a ladder to access it for storage, it dawned on me to use an attic ladder until the day when we get around to a full stairway system. This was such an easy cure to our access problem. I reduced in size our stairway opening to fit the attic ladder and only needed a 2nd person when it was time to lift the unit up into that area. Once in place, it bolted right up nice and tight. Our whole family loves being able to use our loft now. Great product. Directions were spot on. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow, what an improvement!! I just finished the installation of my new attic ladder and I am thrilled with the results! In my case I was able to install it by myself, but I would not recommend this unless you are tall (I'm 6'4")and able to lift the ladder up into the attic and then ease it down onto the temporary supports. To do this required the use of a 6 ft step ladder and the removal of the ties holding the ladder in place, not a task for the faint of heart, because once the ladder is being carefully lifted into the attic there is no turning back without eating a rather heavy attic ladder. Installation was very straightforward. I needed quite a bit of shimming on the sides mostly just to fill the gaps between my framing and the ladder framing, but it was easy to square. I used spray foam to fill the gaps. After installation was complete, I trimmed around it with 1x4, primed the whole exterior and painted to match my ceiling. I didn't use the provided pull cord but instead installed a large cabinet knob. It was so nice to finally replace the old, wobbly, concrete counterweighted nightmare that was original to our house. A great deal at a great price!! May 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase Great ladder easy to install. Should be mandatory in all houses May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Ladder system I was decommissioning a splintered wooden ladder that had been in the house when I bought it. The Video on YouTube was a great help in understanding the installation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvzQMts-giM While the dimensions say for a 25 in. x 54 in. ruff opening the frame it comes with is actually like 24x53". So expect to do some major shimming. I used a 1x4 at the long end and stacked some shims along the sides to fill the 1/2" gap on both sides. It comes with 10 lag bolts and washers but you'll need 4 or more #8 deck screws to set the ends to start with before setting the lag bolts. While I did it solo it is safer to have a helper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Very sturdy and well made. Love the easy close feature. Only downside, It states to visit the website to find the instructions and it is not user friendly. I could never find the video. March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This is a sturdy item that feels safe and stable The ladder was a little complicated to level and center in the space. We used wooden shims and filled large gaps with insulation foam. The ladder works smoothly and is very sturdy. It is easy to climb up and down. Our previous ladder was very unstable. We replaced a pull down ladder that had a broken bracket and spring assembly. We are very happy with this product. We had a handyman install it with a 2nd person. July 20, 2016
