Answer: 
Before using the first time, we did a test at ground level on the bottom rungs of two A-frame ladders. Fully extended, we put six(6) Fifty(50) pound sacks of fertilizer across the scaffold and it had no measurable deflection. (This is fifty(50) pounds over the suggested capacity.)
I weigh in at 155 and use it with another 75 lbs. of tools and materials routinely.

Answer: 
Doing some research, I found that with it fully extended the maximum weight capacity is 250 pounds and a limit of one person. I've used it several times with it fully extended and I'm about 225 pounds and there were no issues. It's made very sturdy.

Answer: 
The PA200 series extension planks have a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds. The weight capacity would remain the same for the plank in all extended positions.

Answer: 
Fully extended is 13 feet. However, allowing for the support ladders and work room for yourself, I consider the comfortable, usable length to be about 12 feet, plus your comfortable reach.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great accessory for anyone using ladders. After years of hauling and lifting heavy 2"x12" yellow pine planks around for scaffolding boards, I finally broke down and bought the Werner expandable, aluminum scaffolding extension planks. Boy, was that a smart decision! Light weight, easy to handle and since they expand, can fit into areas a one piece wood plank cannot fit, such as tight stairwells. In the attached photos we are using the plank extended between a Werner 16' folding ladder, Mdl. # M1A-8-16B at the top of the stairs and landing and a Werner 16' extension ladder, Mdl. # D1116-2 on the low end of the stairs. As the photos show we were able to safely re-paint the stairwell walls AND ceiling and replace the bulbs in the light fixtures. July 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wish I had bought it sooner Span a 10 ft opening in dock to service back of boat. plank is stable and fairly easy to carry and use. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Planking Great product. Light and easy for 1 person to handle. December 8, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy This think is monstrous. I havent used it yet, I might have to return it. I dont see how I can move it around. I will do a update after I paint the stairs. If it does what it should I will rate it HEAVY but NEEDED. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well made product. I bought this plank during our master bedroom renovation project. It was very helpful to have a plank to stand on for applying mud to the drywall and then painting. Our room is 12x14, so I got the plank that can extend up to 13 feet. Now looking back I should've gotten a shorter version. because the plank only goes to minimum of 8 feet, it was somewhat awkward to maneuver it around when the room to move your setup. I'm sure you wouldn't have any issues working with it outside, but inside I would suggest getting a shorter one. Otherwise, I am very happy with my purchase and can recommend it to others to not run up and down the ladder for your projects. October 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very light and comes very handy Bought it for crown moulding for 16 feet ceiling master bedroom, need to cross king size bed, with Werner multi-purpose ladder in one side and Werner podium 12 feet ladder on the other side, wide open up to 13 feet, feels very steady and secure, no bouncing, finished and touch up painted the crown moulding, nice weekend project, thanks Werner. April 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value This is a good all around and very sturdy extension plank. But, I just tried to use it taping ceiling joints in a small bedroom, better get a smaller one for small rooms. December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Limit your up & down This is one one of those things once you buy it you ask yourself why didn't I buy this sooner. It's amazing the time and effort that you save by not continually up and down the ladder October 14, 2014
