Answer: 
I personally would not recommend using the top step on any ladder, regardless of the design or the material it is made from. If the need for extra height is there, get a taller ladder. Depending on the access to the attic,a suitable drop down ladder would be the way to go.

Answer: 
Never use the top platform for standing on. Simple laws of physics will dictate the center of gravity will become so high in relation to the height of the ladder making it very easy to "kick out" from underneath you. Statistics indicate that 1/2 of all falls from 11' are fatal. A straight or extension ladder should be used and extended above the level you are wanting to access.

Answer: 
Unfortunately you cannot stand on the top (blue part) of this ladder. Per OSHA, you cannot stand on the top of any ladder that is over 32". The standing height suggested on this ladder is the 2nd step from the top of the ladder.

Answer: 
How high do you want to reach? If you're not afraid of heights, can handle a 6' or 8' ladder, you should be able to safely reach 8-10' depending on which ladder you choose, and which step of the ladder makes you feel comfortable.

The Ladder is 8' to the very top when deployed. You are not supposed to stand higher than the third step down. The second to the top and the top are not safe places to stand as you can lose your balance and fall. So if you need to reach 12' while standing on the 3rd step down, factor your arm reach and you should be good.

Answer: 
The total approximate reach height on an eight foot step ladder is twelve feet. The highest point which a user can safely stand on the ladder is six feet. The height of the person, plus the length of the arm's reach would give an approximate total of twelve feet.

Answer: 
How well can you climb? If you climb well you can get by with 4' step ladder or sturdy stool. I am about 50# over weight and i would use an 8' or 10' ladder. The 8' will open easier in a 9' high room but you may need to use the top step or top of the ladder which is not recommended buy the MFG. A10' will protrude about 8-10" into the opening ensuring you have a safe footing.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a champ I bought this ladder to match the 4' podium ladder that I own. Both ladders were invaluable in putting up my new 10'x10' gazebo. They both provide a very light but stable platform on which to work. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8FT Heavy Duty Ladder I needed a ladder to support me for every day jobs in a house with cathedral ceilings. I am also 6'7" 250 LBS and needed a ladder that supported my size. This is perfect. Price was reasonable but I wished the shipping costs were less. It arrived as estimated and was partially shrink wrapped (no damage to the ladder). Overall good purchase. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 8ft ladder Have only used it once so far, but it is easy to set and stable. September 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best ladder there ever was! If you need to reach high places (up to about 12') this is the tool for you! When properly placed and used it forms a sturdy triangle shape to hold you up. When properly used with common sense it is as safe as an 8' type 1A ladder gets. I really like the color (safety orange) as well it complements our companies florescent yellow work shirts. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladder The Werner ladder is very sturdy and has great pads on the base of the legs also weight of ladder is perfect compared to old wooden or metal ones August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent!!!! Very well constructed, feels hard and durable, my only complaint is with Home depot, you should keep clean all the items!!! as a suggestion. September 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for jobs all around the house I bought the 10 foot size about 3 months ago with a $20 off promo and have loved using it. My house has mostly 9 foot ceilings with 11 feet in a couple rooms and 14 feet in the foyer. I have an old wooden 6 foot step ladder that I had been using, but it can't reach the 14 foot ceiling and using it for the 11 foot ceilings is really pushing the safety margin. I waited several months for the $20 off promo on the 8 foot step ladder and it finally came through. Have used the 8 foot step ladder several times since then. Works great inside and out. If you are looking for an 8 foot step ladder that is sturdy, safe, high quality, and easy to maneuver around, this is it. Also check out the tool bucket and other attachments available. I bought the bucket (around $10) and I think it is a worthwhile addition to save trips up and down the ladder. It works for all the step ladder in this series. Have used it already on the 8 foot and 10 foot sizes. August 2, 2016
