Can this ladder be broke down or separated into 2 pieces, for duel use. Seems it would increase flex-ability in the product, be it 16,20 or 24 foot ladder.

Can I use this ladder to install a light at 24 ft high on the side of my house?

Asked by: butch2T
If it's electric or near electric or your thinking about electric go with fiberglass, wood, or something non-conductive. Hint aluminum ladders are conductive. You may forget to turn the power to the light off, you might bump a wire, something might short, etc. And aluminum boats for lightining are available from the same folks that reccoment aluminum ladders for electric work.

extension ladders: how can an 8 ft ladder extend to 16 ft? there has to be an overlap of at least 2 ft so a 16 ft ladder must be at least 9 ft min?

Asked by: frank
Yes it is a standard of the industry extension ladder so it must have an overlap

40 ft. Aluminum Extension Ladder with 250 lbs. Load Capacity Type I Duty Rating is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1745.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product but user be aware! This ladder is indeed well worth the price you pay. But, you need to be aware that due to it's length and weight it can become difficult to manage. Just to give you an idea, I turned down the offer of HD personnel on assisting me with loading it onto my the roof of my truck because I knew they would not be there when I needed it to be off loaded. Now, I'm a big guy at about 6' 200 lb but yet that ladder if not handled correctly, could cause someone some problems. It's highly recommended that you have someone to assist you. But, if you're like me and know that it's either I do it or it's not going to get done, then you need to be sure you balance the ladder carefully before moving it as well as having it planned before raising it up. I'm pretty sure that as I age and lose continue to lose strength, they'll come a time when I'll no longer be able to move this ladder around and raise it to it's maximum recommended height of 28'. But until then, I shall enjoy it and will not ever in my life have to buy another ladder. Thanks HD for selling this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a Great Ladder ! I bought this ladder last weekend to clean and fix the gutters and fascia boards on my 2 story home. I have a 40 ft ladder and a 16 ft that I’ve had for a while. I purchased this 28 because the 40 footer is so hard to handle. Well this is the best ladder I have ever used. First off I can handle it by myself. Secondly it is easy to extend and lower because it slides easy and the clamps work perfectly. Thirdly is very sturdy and handles my 220 pounds with no flexing. The ladders I have are aluminum but older and I think the newer ladders are better designed. I am very happy with Werner and would highly recommend this ladder. PS. We used it to also clean my buddy neighbors gutters and he went out this weekend and bought a new ladder….because he didn’t want to be outdone by me! lol

Lightweight, easy to carry and setup, and very sturdy. It has already paid for itself by saving me the $200+ per gutter cleaning. And since I live in a wooded area, this adds up rather quickly. I tried using an articulated ladder in the past to clean the gutters, but it was very heavy and difficult to setup and use as an extension ladder. I suggest sticking with a true extension ladder, and I highly recommend this for two story homes. I used Home Depot's express delivery service for $79; while pricey, it was very convenient and the delivery drivers were very courteous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deceiving Advertising Regarding Height of this Ladder The ladder is of good quality for a lightweight ladder, and not safe for heavy guys over 200 lbs. The problem I have with the ladder is that Werner Corporation advertises it as a 16ft ladder, with a 15 ft reach. In reality, when you take out your tape measure and measure the ladder at its full extended height the ladder is actually only 13 feet long. This to me doesn't seem like honest advertising. Werner goes about this by measuring the two "8" foot sections that comprise the ladder. When you check this ladder out in the store, and when you put the extension hooks on the top wrung of the lower portion you will see there are still two wrungs below the top wrung of lower portion. These two wrungs lessen the length of the ladder by 3 feet. So I just want you to beware the ladder is only 13 feet long when fully extended. I think Home Depot and Werner should be more honest.

This ladder caught on quickly and needed little to no remedial instruction on how I wanted that to work. It kinda sucks when the ladder gets the order of that process mixed up. One of the little plastic caps on the lower half is bent/broke, so gotta be careful not to gouge the siding when scaling the side of the house. the upper half's end bumpers do well at gripping and not marking up my new siding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, Love it, Love it...I bought... Love it, Love it, Love it...I bought this Type II ladder because it weighs about 10 lbs lighter than a Type 1 of the same size. And since I was going to be using it alone most of the time I needed it to be as light as it could be so I could move it around but without giving up stability, as nobody likes a bouncy ladder. Of course I gave up about 25 pounds of weight capacity, as the type II supports 225 lbs instead of the 250 lbs supported by the Type 1 but as I am a smaller person (160 lbs) and since I was just using it for painting my house and not carrying heavy loads to the roof it worked great for me. If you are a bigger person and you are close to the max recommended weight of this ladder I would suggest you look into the type 1 instead but if you fit into this one you will not be disappointed. Only bad part is they don't usually stock Type II ladders of this size in the store so you'll probably have to order it and then go pick it up at the store as I don't believe it's deliverable. Overall totally recommend.

I needed a very lightweight tall ladder that I could easily handle by myself, this ladder fits that need. I am a do-it-yourself person and this is a good ladder to reach the second floor of my house, I weight 155 lbs so this ladder my not be suited for a 300 lb person.

We are using this ladder to trim the English Ivy that grows up the sides of our house. Trying to keep it from covering the windows and such. We have only had it a couple weeks, but have already used it once. The ladder is a little difficult to manuver when it is fully extended, but that is to be expected!!.
