Very stable. Perfect to reach my Velux Roof Window in grand room to replace it and get trim installed. Will use it to install direct screening on back porch from walk out as reach there is nearly perfect rather than set up scaffold that is difficult to move. Neighbor used it to reach all of his open foyer for painting. Only issue is it really takes two to set up and move as it's 12' overall and 10' to platform and just a bit too heavy for me to handle on my own. I store on ladder hooks on lower level shop wall. For the money it's worth it as a time saver and for me it already paid for itself!
This is an excellent ladder. I only wish it had built in wheels. It stands almost 9 feet tall but is light enough for me to carry.
The podium allowed me to stand comfortably to use a gas powered hedge trimmer and pole chainsaw to (safely) cut down a 15’ hedge to a height of 9’. I have a view of the gutters I cleaned and while I was up there I trimmed the tree as high as I could .
I am so in love with this ladder. I am 5'4 and 125 lb and it is easy to move around. It has saved me hiring countless people to do work in my house where I can't reach. My daughter also liked to decorate it for Christmas since it isn't leaving my living room anytime soon due to the amount of work I have left.
This is a nice and sturdy enough unit I think primarily for inside use. I noted that the foot pad attachment partially detached on one side on one of the legs and held in place with the central rivets. I tried to put it back in place but it would not back all the way to sit flush with the leg. I believe Werner needs to redesign the attachment. and possibly add more rivets near the edges of the pad. I chose not to return it because I was planning to use it around the house and could use it as is if I remained careful when using it. I would thing most people expect a ladder for rugged use and not something to baby like a camera!
I'm 76 and bought this ladder to fuel my airplane, which is a bush plane with large tires.. Other ladders felt unsafe to me... Not this one though... It's rock solid and I feel completely safe on it, especially handling 30 pound gas cans. Very well built and easy to use.. Not heavy either.. A wise choice on my part..
