Will I be able to change a lightbulb in neither, either or both of my ceiling levels with the help of this ladder?



The highest standing level is 4'9". Add your height and reach to that, and it sounds like you can reach the 10' bulbs, but maybe not the 12'.

Ya got a cite on that? Their web site (http://www.littlegiantladder.com/little-giant/type-1.html) states that it is made in the U.S.A.

The storage dimensions are 4'7" x 1'9" x 8". (I cheated, I looked at the specs tab.)

Or you are a midget so you don't weight very much?

I'm not saying I'm as in shape now as I ever was but even when I was in shape I still weighed over 200 cause I'm not a weakling midget, ya jerk.

So anyone who weighs under 200 pounds when they're in shape is a "weakling midget"? Gracious! According to the CDC, the average weight for American men over the age of 20 was 195 pounds in 2011, and 165 pounds for American women. Personally, I weigh 100 pounds if I convince the doctor to leave me leave my shoes on; although I'm pretty strong for my size (I can bench 130 pounds, for example), I'm definitely not going to be hauling 150 pounds of tools or shingles up a 15' ladder. Even an "average" weight woman is unlikely to regularly be hauling 85 pounds - in a single go - up a 15' ladder. For that matter, I'm guessing that the "average" American male isn't frequently hauling 55 pounds on a single go.

If you're on the upper 50% of the weight curve, this ladder probably isn't the right choice for your household - but those of us who are between 1-49.9% of the weight curve aren't "midget weaklings."

And jerkitude isn't limited to a particular segment of the growth curve.
