I needed an 8 foot step ladder as my house has 12 and 13 foot ceilings and a lot of recessed lighting. I'm a big guy and wanted a good sturdy ladder with a 300+ lb capacity. This ladder is the perfect fit. The right height, the right capacity and it's not very heavy. The rubber pads on the bottoms of the legs protect the floor and the tray and tool slots on the top are helpful.
When installing a ceiling fan, I found myself on the rung second from the top for some of the wiring and I felt secure on this ladder.

While this ladder is slightly heavier than ladders I have used in the past, I know that this is a result of its heavy duty construction to hold 300 lbs, instead of the typical less expensive ladders that often had weight ratings as low as 200 lbs. I felt secure on this ladder as I climbed to replace light fixtures in my home that needed an 8' ladder to reach due to my elevated ceilings. Steady, no shaking, and I weigh more than the 300 lbs so if it will hold me rock solid it should hold anyone.

The ladder is light enough to be carried by one person, and stable enough to make getting to 10-foot tall ceilings easily. We especially appreciated the markedly reduced delivery charge for the ladder.

This is a standard 8' Fiberglass Ladder. I went with the Orange as I am close to 275 LBS. and the 300 LB. rating is just what I needed.
It has handy tool holding locations in the top and is very sturdy. Being fiberglass it is also non-conductive so if doing electrical work, you are far less likely to be shocked through the ladder.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by beerdranker needed a good ladder
I had a Werner 7 footer that twisted and bent the spreader bars. OK I was standing higher than recommended and I weigh more than the rating, so I'm not blaming the ladder. So I needed a better one to get my many chores and projects gone. I hated to pay the high cost for this one but I could not be happier with the construction and stability of the 8 footer. Stable and secure when I was trimming tree branches. Next is my cabin project. High price but excellent stability.
