Cool, its been on my list of things to get, I have a need for one.

Believe it or not I have a 32 ft., 24 ft. and 16 ft. extension ladder along with a 8 ft. step ladder and still cant reach some of the areas I need to get to.

Yeah, I'm pretty impressed with it. I was in a bind and needed a big A frame ladder. My extension wouldn't work. So, I figured why not get a Little Giant. I bought the 1A. It is an A framme to 9' and an extension to 20'. It folds down to about 5' by 1'.

Brian,

Tom

The Model 17 (one on TV) is $359.80. A Frame max height of 7ft and extenstion height of 15'. I bought the Model 22 which is $399.80. A Frame max height of 9' and extension max of 19'. Their is a Model 26 as well if you needed bigger. You can get free shipping from their website or they sell them at your local Home Depot. It does some pretty cool stuff. My wife has been on ours the better part of the day cleaning and stuff. It's a bit pricey but it is a bad @ss ladder.

Brian, my father in law has one and has loved it. Used it to build his pier, dock, and boat house.

Those things rock! We kept them on our aircraft in England. they can take a beating, I think that may have been the only tool or peice of equipment that never needed to be replaced because it was built so well. We used to pass them up and down the crew entry hatch and I've seen one get dropped about 20 feet and it was like nothing happened.

We've had one for a fews years, it has seen some use. Not commercially, but it has held up really well. And I would not hesitate to buy another one "IF" I ever have a problem with it. And I do not see that being anytime in the near future.
A great product.

Well now I know it is winter I am posting on a thread about a ladder
But one thing it is the best ladder I have ever had it is so stable
The only thing is it is heavy for my wife to move around…….
Yes I know what is my wife doing on my ladder ………don’t ask :rant:

We bought one of the early generation of a ladder that was similar. It was heavily advertised back in the mid 80's. But the SOB weighs so much, I prefer to use either the step ladder or the extension ladder.

This new version looks much improved.

Well, its time for the taller A frame LGLS. :o
Did you guys see the "skyscraper" version? Not sure it would be as good at multi-purpose, but for the $, it better change those bulbs FOR me....;)

I've also sent in a request to the manu. for a LGLS wall mount. We shall see what they say.:D

I bought an imitation one from Walmart (http://www.djgusa.com/cosco/indproduct.asp?productID=430). I paid $109 for it. Doesn't have all of the features, but it works great.

a good friend of ours is a teacher, paints in the summers - he swears by the little giant and spends a LOT of time on it. anything he recommends, i have no need to research further.

After using my dad's for the past couple weeks, I have to say it's the best if you need it. But - man, it sure is heavy compared to my fiberglass ladders.

But, for working on steps, or un-even surfaces, there's no comparison. Always 100% sturdy. It is nice to be able to stand on either side of it also.

We have been using ours for several years too, I love it and will get another, the existing one we have is no longer tall enough.. And it doesn't have the new wheel kit for rolling it around.

We carry them on our firetrucks. They are rock solid and versatile to a lot of applications. Highly recommend it for the appropriate jobs!

My request for the MADE IN USA Little Giant Ladder System MOUNT...:D

Thanks for the wonderful idea for an accessory. I have forwarded your email to upper management to review. If I can assist you further in any way please let me know.

I used mine last weekend to trim some big trees back. It works very well. It is pricey, but probably the last ladder you will ever buy.
