This Gorilla 5.5' 4-step ladder is very lightweight and easy to carry. The 4" collapsed width makes it very compact for storage. The 2 upper step platforms feel very stable & secure. We compared the aluminum model with the identical fiberglass model, and we preferred the aluminum model because it is lighter, more compact when collapsed, and also seemed to have less flex when open. I used the ladder on flat concrete and on soft, uneven soil, and it performed well in both conditions. We also compared this Gorilla ladder with the Werner equivalent model, and we like the Gorilla ladder much better. The feet of the Gorilla ladder are more solid/heavy duty, and the Gorilla has aluminum step platforms compared to plastic step platforms on the Werner. We are very satisfied with our purchase!

Love this ladder! It's lightweight so you can easily carry it around and it's tall to easily reach stuff that's high up. The 2 platforms at the top are handy for holding paint, tools, etc. I bought it for me but my husband loves it too because it's so much lighter than his ladder.

I like it. The ladder is sturdy, strong, and light. The ladders that belonged to my father is made of wood and a little wobbly. Aluminum is better than wood or fiberglass.
