Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stable work platform, versatile ladder Excellent step ladder with platform third step for applications where you will be in one spot and want a stable work platform. Almost like having a mini scaffold about 35 inches off the ground. Easily paint a 9 foot ceiling using this ladder, or install drapes, etc. Top of ladder offers tool storage as well as a curved recess for leaning against the ladder, making you feel very secure. Very well constructed, heavy duty, and very stable ladder. Top of ladder is about 6 feet from the ground. There are no steps higher than the platform, limiting the work height to the equivalent of a conventional five foot step ladder. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Use of nkew 9.5 ft reach Podium Ladder. The reason I purchase this ladder was because of my age and how standing regular ladder steps were painful if doing it for extended times. It has a nice sturdy flat platform for standing on and much broader ,stronger legs for the floor for painting and doing any work within my home with ceilings at 8'. Great any repairs,projects or painting,light changing,AC filter changing. I would recommend it not only for home owners but commercial workers,who are on ladders on and off all day long. Its rated for 300lbs. Great product.... Larry S. Florida February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Better Ladder Had to replace an old ladder. Saw this one and decided to give it a try. Only available online so bought sight-unseen. Really like the ladder, especially the platform. Feel safer. That platform will come in handy for blueberry picking this summer. Arrived earlier than expected. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superior stability with outstanding design features This is the best ladder I have ever used in my lifetime. The stability is outstanding. The platform is large and well constructed. The top of the ladder is equipped with spots for work tool storage during the project. The legs of the ladder are well placed and stable. This ladder has outstanding design features and is of a superior quality. This product is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. I can't believe how much better I feel when on this ladder as compared to any ladder I have used in past projects. August 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very sturdy! This is every bit as sturdy as I had hoped. Be aware it is bigger than I thought a 3-ft ladder would be, but that is because the sides continue up well beyond the platform to give a firm area to hold or lean against. This is perfect for old folks (my wife and I) to use around the house, or our son (without balance) to reach his upper book shelves. I don't know why Home Depot estimated and took over a month to deliver it. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stable ladder Very stable, strong construction. Safest stepladder I have ever used January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Safe and Stable Ladder This is a really well made ladder that is the safest and most stable I have seen. The feet spread out wide providing a secure and stable base for the ladder. The ladder rungs are wide and the podium to stand on is large. I had room for a bucket with plenty left over for me. The handrail is heavy with small trays and holes to store screwdrivers, paint brushes, etc. A very solid and safe fiberglass ladder that will last a lifetime. Please view the video demonstrating this awesome work ladder. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice ladder Other than the first one having been damaged in shipment, I am very pleased with the product. It is constructed very well and is very stable to stand on. It's light weight also makes it easy to move around. My wife and I like this style of ladder so well that we bought 3 sizes of them and either gave away or threw out our older wooden stepladders.
