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

Will the fiberglass deteriorate if stored outside?

Asked by: Learning
Yes, there is some degradation in the color of the ladder. Not sure how it affects the fiberglass, but I store all my large step and extension ladders outside and have done so for 15 plus years. Most people I know who use these ladders, store them outside, either on their trucks, or on storage racks or on the ground.

12 ft. Reach Fiberglass Podium Ladder with 300 lb. Load Capacity Type IA Duty Rating (Comparable to 8 ft. Stepladder) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 466.

I ordered on-line site unseen and hoped it would be strong and durable as I am using the ladder to mainly clean gutter cans at a 14ft height. I am 52 years old and not as agile as I once was. This ladder gives me the support and confidence I needed, only draw-back is the weight of the ladder but what would you expect for a ladder of this size. I highly recommend this ladder for any needs requiring stability and mobility at this height range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed this ladder to replace emergency lights mounted on the ceiling in my churches sanctuary. ... Needed this ladder to replace emergency lights mounted on the ceiling in my churches sanctuary. The light fixtures were mounted at a height of 15 feet above the floor. Working on this ladder made it very comfortable and safe. Ladder is a heavy fiberglass step ladder, so it took two of us, older men, to move and set it up. However, a younger, stronger person may be able to move and set it up alone. Was using a regular 12 ft. fiberglass ladder to work on a separate video projector that is mounted on a pole that comes down from the ceiling. That ladder was unsafe to use. Now with this new podium ladder, I'm much safer to work on this projector. Found the price to be very good. Highly recommend this ladder!!

As the facility manager at a large church I wanted a ladder with a platform as I change out a lot of lights and do repairs up high. Today I did our annual raising of our 20' long Pentecost banner that requires me to cast fishing line over a 45' high beam, tie it to 100# line and then raise it up and tie it off to the organ loft! (See attached pictures) The platform ladder gave a more stable platform for casting over the beam (I'm not a fisherman!) and then tying it off. The platform ladder did really help and I would recommend it.

Had hip replacement four months ago, and am able to safely and securely work on these ladders. The podium platform provides a large area to stand on, and turn in all directions, while giving hip rest, to continue healing, since feet are flat on wide surface instead of narrow rung. Prior to surgery these podium ladders were the only type I could use because of the pain and hip's unstability. The blue work buckets that attach are great for keeping tools, material at hand.

This ladder was a perfect replacement. Not too heavy to move around yet strong enough to hold my bulk and tools. The platform was a treat to my feet after years of balancing on my toes on the old ladder. I can now safely reach a much larger area so I don't have to move the ladder as much either. I am very pleased with this ladder.

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".

Sturdy, light, and no leg fatigue if you have to be on it for awhile. While working, turning and adjusting in corners is easy when on the platform. The platform gave us a greater sense of stability. There's also an attachment feature for a pail which we used to hold a few lightweight tools. We also have the 12' reach as well. It came in very handy for party which featured a pinata.
