Questions & Answers

what is the height of the platform you stand on

Asked by: GRANPA
the 8" is actually at 7'8" the 10" is at 9'7" their literature is wrong. i even called werner because in my case this difference was critical. they reported back with faulty information opposed to my actual measurements from floor. so when they say 8" & 10" think of it as "8" & "10" on the podium height lol.

I am guessing this has already been asked, and already been answered. But it is frustrating to have to sift through these questions. And the specification that SHOULD be on the specs isn't. The description of this says 16ft reach in the title name, but then in the description says equal to 12 ft reach. So what's that mean? What is the height of the podium (where you stand on at the top)? 10ft?
Asked by: JimCricket
It is a 12 foot ladder but the podium allows you to reach up to 16 foot. We used at our local community museum to restore the 100 year old antique ceiling which is at a 16 foot height. Standing on the podium it is much safer than a regular ladder. You don't feel uncomfortable reaching up to 16 foot.

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: TD
I easily cleaned my gutters using this ladder. It is a lot more secure for that work than a stepladder is.

What ladder height should I get?

I am 5.6’ tall and have very tall ceilings and my 8’ regular step ladder (safely use 6’ of it) doesnt get me high enough to reach the ceiling light that is 15’ up, let alone be able to paint the walls or ceiling. What height ladder do you recommend?
Asked by: Xtina
There is a reach height of 16', but not 15'. Please go to the following link, to see the ladders available. https://www.wernerco.com/us/en/products/climbing-equipment/stepladders?ipp=24&cp=1&sort=default&tts=1537815152561

10 ft. Reach Fiberglass Podium Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating (Comparable to 6 ft. Stepladder) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 873.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and sturdy! The Werner podium step ladder is an exceptional piece of hardware. I have been using this ladder very frequently since receiving it, from tasks such as painting, to installing ceiling fans. The highlight of this product is the podium that you are able to firmly plant your feet on without fear of falling, along side of the guard rail to keep you more secure. The guard rail also serves as a neat tool by itself. Allowing you to use the small built in tray to hold screws, nails, and fasteners while you are working. There are also two magnetic spots on the railing that can be used to hold numerous other things such as nails, tools, and bolts. Upon initial setup I was excited to see that the ladder stood very even and firm with no wobbling issues. I also feel as though the mechanism that prevents the ladder from folding in is very secure and well built. I am very pleased with the construction of this ladder and would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! We got the 14' Reach (comparable to a 10' stepladder). The 14' reach is based on someone being about 5'6" I believe, and it proved to meet those expectations perfectly. Simply fabulous ladder! Much more comfortable to work from a platform, not to mention safer!!! It is very tall, but due to its reasonable weight, it not too difficult to maneuver despite its height. It was particularly useful on an A-frame wall with lots of windows that needed caulking. Not only made the job feasible, but able to do it comfortably. Would even consider buying another one in different size to replace my smaller step ladders. Due to its 10'+ size, transporting it may be an issue. That being said, it did fit in a 2000 Honda Odyssey with a very long bed and a front seat in the reclined position. We were able to put it inside and close the door. Never expected that, though that feature might be a plus for the old Honda rather than the ladder. Definitely recommend this ladder and the HD price was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than what I expected. Very sturdy. Really can work in all 4 directions without worrying. Like another reviewer I was expecting the 4 feet to be measured at the top of the guard rail. Four feet is the height of the platform. 46 inches to be exact. The top of the guard rail is 6 ' 9 inches. This is far more capable than what I expected. For the first time in 10 years I was able to vacuum my vaulted ceilings and repair two canister lights. The platform is even large enough to hold my canister vac and me with enough foot room to move in all 4 directions. The platform is 16 x 16 inches or 16 x 20 inches if you count the step. Top of guard rail is 6' 9 inches from floor when extended. 7' 2 inches when folded flat The rail can hold 4 screwdrivers, a power screwdriver, a pliers, has a magnet and a cubby for about two dozen nails or screws. The guardrail is 15.5 inches inside if you are wondering The base is 43.5 inches deep x 27.25 inches wide in case you need to work in tight spaces like on a boat or narrow steps. This is my go to ladder from now on if I need to do any work between 5 and 10 feet.

The platform supports the entire foot rather than a rung supporting part of the foot = much less foot and calf fatigue after several hours of use. The platform also enables you to point your feet in different directions for more stability when reaching out with tools in your hands. The high point of the ladder which hits me on the upper thighs is a good reference point so I know where my center of gravity is. Have had it two weeks and used it a couple of hours every day painting 19' ceilings and trimming a bunch of trees. An excellent tool that exceeds my expectations. No downsides. Should have bought one years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than it looks! The 8-foot ladder has one BIG advantage over the regular 8-footer they don't tell you about (I compared a neighbor's on the same job). Not only is the platform amazingly useful and safe, but that little extension at the top adds 10 inches to the total height of the ladder! This means that instead of having the top platform just above your knees, and below your reach to steady yourself, you have a perfectly positioned handle to hold, and to support your hips. Changing bulbs on a 12-foot ceiling was a little nervous with a regular 8-footer, but with this, it's MUCH safer and more comfortable. Of course, the benefits of the platform are as good as everyone says, but the added height of the grab handle (with its handy tool-holding apertures) multiplies the benefits of this ladder. Note that if you're storing it in tight places, the 8-foot Podium ladder is nearly a foot longer than the 8-foot regular stepladder.

Stable, sturdy, but heavy; can’t believe that Werner failed to have option to add casters to make moving it around less strenuous on my back and abdomen, since I have hernias. Like many others I’m considering trying to locate some generic after-market casters.

It is great for painting or any work more than a minute on a ladder. If you ever start using this type of ladder you will not use any other type. I ordered another podium for a different height.
