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

9 ft. Reach Fiberglass Podium Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating (Comparable to 5 ft. Stepladder) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 302.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stable and safe Easier to work on than my standard 12' ladder and more stable. When erected it measures 12' 6" from the floor to its top handrail. So if your ceiling is shorter than this you will not be able to set it up. The platform you stand on is 9' 7" off of the ground so since I am 6' tall that puts my head 15' 7" off of the floor. The stand is also handy as a work area or for holding tools on ceilings below 16' but above 12' 6". Also you should note that base of the ladder occupies some significant amount of space 38" x 6' 9".

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this ladder!! This ladder is the perfect height to access our roof (single story house). It was so much easier to carry buckets of roof sealant up onto the roof. It was almost like having stairs with a landing at the top. We felt very secure unlike with our extension ladder. Our neighbors that were helping us also were impressed with this ladder and want to get one of their own or borrow ours (that's not going to happen). Just a tip, make sure when you pick it up at the store you have a truck with a long bed. When we were loading it, other customers walking out of the store remarked at how long it is. We have shown it to and recommended it to our friends and neighbors. Well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Ladder!!! If you're a painter and work on homes that have higher ceilings than average (9 - 10 ft tall) then you'll find that you save a ton of time with this ladder. You can do your cut-ins along ceilings much more quickly because you can stretch out further on 3 sides (directly in front of you, to your left and to your right) while standing on a platform instead of the steps on any conventional ladder. The thing I didn't realize affected me so much was the fatigue I would experience from my feet getting sore on a typical ladder. You're more comfortable using this ladder because you're standing on a flat platform with balance throughout your foot instead of the steps on a ladder that you stand on with only the middle of your foot and have to continually keep balancing yourself while you're on it. I didn't expect to like this ladder as much as I do....it's the best investment I've made in a long time!!!
