Yeah, that is the drawback, mine is pretty damn heavy. But heavy=safe & sturdy. I'm pretty sure I've heard that the newer generation of them are lighter.

Umm...I don't think you're talking about the same thing.

It's not a Baby Giant, but it's the same 4 section 3 double joint configuration, just a different manufacturer and older design.

Mine only has one "hinge" point at the middle. Other than that both ends telescope out to increase length. I do not have a double or triple hinge ladder.

Mine looks like the one in Hamas' video, only it doesn't even flare at the ends.

And FTR, I wasn't commenting on what someone might buy today. You can't even find mine anywhere anymore, outside my basement.

You're talking about one of these, and yes, they are an unsafe, worthless POS.


Not the same thing as a Little Giant at all.

right now he's using a 30 year old ladder that is missing one foot because he hit it with the lawn mower.

rather not have him crack his skull cleaning the gutters because he's 'stacking pieces of wood' under a missing ladder foot to keep it level.

lg is a great ladder, but it's a finger-pinching sonofabitch.

If he can do what he needs to do with an extension ladder then as others have mentioned that may be the way to go. The Little Giant is versatile but I don't really like using it fully extended to climb up on a roof. It works the best as an adjustable stepladder.

As far as extension ladders go, Louisville and Werner are the brands you want to look for.

I have this exact ladder (17') and love it. Bought it at ACE on Black Friday about five years ago. I think it was $75.

I could have taken that very picture. POS, sure, but free and I'm fully informed on it's precariousness. I triple check those joints and tread like a squirrel traversing the tree over the pit bull kennel run. Even if I had a traditional extension ladder, I'd have to buy a shed to go with it as the entrances are too tight and the basement too small to accommodate one.

I have one and they are the shit. Kind of heavy, but worth it because it's useful for a bunch of projects. Painting/working in a stairway makes the job easy with these ladders. You can also find the knockoff brand and save some money and they are just as good.

So I guess I'm not the only one doing that. I keep meaning to replace it.
