This ladder is strong and well built, but it is also quite heavy and I'm not someone who is normally worried about the weight of my equipment.
Unfortunately it failed to perform the very task it was purchased to accomplish; working on stairs.
When it arrived I removed it from the box with much enthusiasm since I had a lot of window work to finish along some stairs, and familiarized myself with the knobs and levers. I then took it to the stairs and attempted to set it up. I was very disappointed to find that the limited adjustments of the ladder meant that it could not be safely placed on a set of stairs with a standard rise and run. With the ladder locked into the position that fit the stairs the best, the rear feet were precariously close to the edge of the stair. I would not have felt safe using the ladder under those circumstances.
This ladder may work on certain stairs but it will not work on all stairs, nor will it work on all slopes. The main reason for this is the limited number of positions that the rear leg has to offer. There are only three positions available, when eight or ten would have made this ladder much more useful.
Do not be fooled by the photos and images of the ladder on stairs, chances are it will not on your stairs.
