How is this comparable to a 6ft stepladder? Will I be able to clean my gutters using this ladder? It doesn't seem that I would be able to reach them

Asked by: dalfino
Assuming you're 6 ft tall, with the platform being 4 ft off the ground your reach is about 10 ft. If you use a 6 ft stepladder, your safe reaching distance, assuming you're not on the top step, is about 6 ft also, so if you're gutters are 10 ft up you'll be fine

Just what I need to reach those high areas and feel the safety of the platform work area. Just wish it were easier to use your Veterans discount when ordering online or when its delivered to the store. They wouldn't allow it. But the ladder is great can't miss.

However-it is not an 14 foot reach unless you are "reaching" literally. 14 ft reach with 8 ft podium. numbers are not matching unless you are literally "reaching". some advertising issues here. normally if you see a ladder with a 14 ft reach-that means it has a 10 ft podium and calculates a person at least 5ft with an armpit at 4ft. 10podium+4 ft to a persons armpits=14ft. 8ft podium+4 ft to armpits=12ft reach-not 14 ft. so say the least we had to order another ladder to get a 10 ft podium with 4 ft to the armpits you need to order the 16ft reach. because it was not as advertised unless a person standing stretching, which does not qualify as a working ladder rating because no one continually stretches for long periods. so that is awful. but the ladder quality is great.

Home Depot On-Line order stated would take a month to arrive in store, but it took 3 days. Would definitely purchase from Home Depot again if needed.

It's like wheels on luggage; why did it take so long and can't imagine life without it. I got it because of 12' ceilings in home. I never really felt safe and stable working from my old style 8' ladder. But as I have gotten older it became apparent that I could no longer work at that height on that ladder. So when I saw this podium ladder I new I needed one. No stores carried the 12' reach even though all houses in area have high ceilings. So when I saw it marked down online I bought and had it shipped to store: arrived about a month before the projected date. Finally used it after a month in garage but instead of inside I used it to trim some palm trees that were getting too high to reach. Wow what a difference! Not only because of the podium it also has a wider stance and better footing, really important when using on sand. It was so stable I had to keep reminding myself not to reach to far. I tried some other brands called "platform" , scary, My old ladder was better. I guess the price is high; cost more than the scaffolding I have but my opinion after using it worth every penny.

After reading many reviews from building contractors, I decided this was the ladder for me. I'm not in a business, but rather a homeowner who was looking for a ladder for a few specific tasks. The first task was hanging our holiday lights on the dock. Because of the platform and the safety bar that I could use to support myself as I reached from side to side I was able to get the job done quicker, safer, and more comfortably, and the stability of standing on a platform relieved some of the stress of looking down into the river - I felt safer. Next task, cleaning the sides of the house, which since it's only one story should work very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Ladder Got this ladder to be able to trim tall trees in the backyard (note the Ficus in the background of the attached pic). It does that and more. No way would I have been able to put up the plywood on the windows in the pic without the podium aspect of this ladder. As for the trees, I feel much safer on this ladder with the podium and the rail. Having a fear of heights, I consider getting up high on most ladders an E-ticket ride. No so on this one. The only caveat I have is that this ladder is a bit awkward to move around owing to its weight. Bottom line is that I highly recommend this ladder.
