What is the full length/height of the 26ft ladder when fully compacted (i.e, at its smallest)?

Asked by LL June 7, 2021
5
Answers

This one is about 6ft when fully compacted. Fit fine inside my sienna van. This is not the smaller for this design. I have seen 5ft with 1 less step and a bit lighter… But Personally, I won’t go shorter even it’s heavier and not as compact. Because remember you need the tilt angle when fully extended. It’s will be safer with heavier and longer ladder for the connecting joins. One problem with this ladder is it cannot be adjust for slope ground, it’s a challenge to sit flat… good luck

What is the proper stabilizer for this ladder?

Asked by newbie November 13, 2020

Answers

I do not understand the question! What is meant by the "proper stabilizer"? This ladder locks into various positions. The lock in points are all predetermined. The user uses the locking point nearest to the configuration desired.

The specs no warranty. Is that true?

Asked by Mark October 2, 2020

Answers

Werner has no means to evaluate how you use their products. Thus, there can be no warranty. Because of the physical integrity of the ladder, it cannot be repaired. For all intensive purposes, a damaged ladder should not be used under any circumstances

It is approximately 79" when fully closed.

This ladder only reaches 11ft, so why the deception calling it a 14ft ladder?

Asked by Mike August 15, 2020

Answers

Size refers to the ANSI definition of length. ANSI states that the size is defined by the combined length of all rail sections, with a tolerance of +/-3” on each section. Note, this does not take into account any overlap between sliding sections like those on an extension or multi-purpose ladder. This can cause a disparity in the size of the ladder versus the actual height.

What is the guarantee?

The best thing about this ladder is that variable size. At the 5 foot height makes it easy to carry as compared to a 8 foot step ladder. Just be carefull when making height adjustments, it can become a guilotine on your fingers. It was easy to setup the multi-postion ladder to install a new motion detection solar light with a cordless drill.

This ladder is versatile and easy to adjust. It is also lightweight enough to be easy to move around, especially for 375 lb capacity. Only drawback was that it didn't come with extra connectors to separate for scaffolding.

I bought this ladder on sale knowing that eventually a lightbulb would go out in the light over our staircase. Sure enough, within a couple weeks, a light went out. I was honestly a little wary of getting on on the ladder at the angle I was at over my stairs, but this thing is SOLID. All my fears melted away as I carefully put all my weight on and got to the lightbulb to change out. It's very easy to use. On the negative side of things, this ladder, like all ladders of its type, is HEAVY. I'm glad I didn't get anything bigger. I'm 6'2" and collapsed, this ladder stands up about to my chin. The next size up would be taller than I am, heavier, and just really difficult to navigate around tight corners and low ceilings without damaging walls and such. Additionally, if I'm going to use it as an extension ladder, it is a bit difficult to get up off the ground at max extension. While traditional extension ladders are vertical when you extend it, this one you have to start on the ground, so without help of someone to hold the end down, it's hard to push up without it sliding away. Since all ladders of this type are heavy, I'm not docking any stars for it. This is the best, most sturdy ladder I own, and as such, I'm giving it 5 stars. Highly recommend. Fully Extended Length: 18'9" (22' REACH, not length) Max A-frame height (floor to top): 9' Min A-frame height: 5'3" Fully collapsed length: 5'7"

This ladder is excellent, sturdy and versatile, a little heavy maybe but makes up because of the infinity of task you can do with it. I use it for working on high ceilings doing drywall and paint mainly... excellent for working on stairs, and I even used it for putting on my Christmas lights this year. I would recommend this ladder 110%

Works as expected. Was able to use it to paint some high places on my house and it worked great. It is a little heavy, especially when fully extended but still manageable. Have not begun to use its full capability but it looks like it will be great for painting stairwells.
