If you have ever watched an infomercial on television and saw this product advertised, there is no wonder why someone would purchase this product! The infomercial on this product, is actually accurate. This is the best ladder system ever. We have owned the Little Giant aluminum ladder for a few years now and it had not disappointed us! While it is a little pricier than most ladders, when you figure you are actually getting many ladders in one, it is actually a bargain. Also a space saver since you aren't filling your garage or basement with multiple ladders. This thing is great! Super versatile. Can be used in so many different configurations to make any job easier to get to. Even can be used on steps!!! It made that difficult stairwell much easier to get to and paint! This is a must have! Great gift for a new homeowner as well!! Think housewarming gift... Highly recommend it to all! Lightweight so it can be used by anyone.
