Is anyone else uncomfortable about using a "refurbished" ladder?

These are awesome ladders, but they weigh a freakin' ton! Not sure about buying a refurb ladder though...

Just the thing for hanging lights or setting up the tree! Well, maybe for us late decorators... (or next year).

Bog of carp anyone?

Can this be used without a partner to support it? Because in the pictures the people are using it solo... I thought that was a no-no in the ladder world.

I have the 15' one, and it's really easy to work with. Mine reaches to about 12' so I'm not sure where they get the extra 3', but the 19' one will probably span 16' reliably.

The "refurbished" probably means that they had to rework the mechanisms to expand/adjust the ladder -- they wouldn't be able to resell it if it didn't hold it's rated 250lbs.

Well worth the $170 in my opinion.

Little Giant ladders are literally the bomb. Not sure about a refurbed one though. Reviews are great, though.

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

Hmm...

If I got this for my dad does it come with a manuel? He won't know how to make it into different configurations.

That was my first thought. I mean, what did they do to "refurbish it? Wipe the blood off and replace the broken rung?

What exactly is bad about buying a refurb ladder?

Its easy to find a defective part and replace it.
Its not like they are selling refurbished tissue.

What could have POSSIBLY happened to these ladders that could have caused them to be refurbished? Haha, just think about that for a little bit. From people walking under them for bad luck to the hijinx from would-be xmas decorators.

And you, the fine Woot customer, will be inheriting one of these deathtraps. Ghosts and all. Perhaps this is where the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Yet to Come came from. Enjoy! :D

I lo lo lo love my little giant ladder that I bought from woot last time. And so does my neighbor. And well.... my brother in law too. He almost didn't return it. Well... he actually didn't. I just stopped by and took ownership back.

Put up Christmas light with it.

Not sure if it would fit a fat guy like me, until I found the Little Giant Guide. Not saying if it will work or not!

That's okay, it comes with a manual in English and Spanish, so Manuel shouldn't have any problem figuring it out.

I'd be willing to bet it's not technically "refurbished." I remember getting one of these a while ago (except it was 1 rung shorter... and from Tanga) and it has a sticker on it that says "Little Giant Certified Demo." Odds are pretty good that these were babied by a sales rep someplace but they have to disclose that these aren't really "brand new." The only "damage" on mine were a few scratches on the rungs where the rep was probably putting the little accessory attachment things...

...No company in their right mind would let a legal liability out the door, so to answer your question: No, I don't have any problem using a "refurbished" ladder.

It may come with a manual. Now the Emmanuel thing I don't know. You can always pick one up at the Home Depot.

Not at all. Refurbished just means that someone took it home and couldn't figure out how to use it, or they just didn't like it. Whenever and item is returned to a retailer it cannot be resold as new. It has to go back to the manufacturer and be sold as refurbished. I got one!!

Can't believe there haven't been any Little Giants movie mentions yet. Not the best movie of all time, by any means. But definitely one of Rick Moranis' more entertaining movies of the 90's. Loved Little Giants.

These ladders are pretty sweet too.

You can definitely use it solo. But you are correct, in the ladder world, and in the real world, not having a partner is very, very dangerous. I mean, without a partner, who's going to break your fall?

No these ladders do not come with manuel, you have to pick him up in front of home depot. Although I can't guarantee his name will be manuel, better luck would be pedro or juan. Those names are more common.

Yes it comes with a very short and small manual. If you are using it for the very first time it might take a bit to figure it all out so you might wish to be with him and the two of you explore it. I wish they had made this one or a larger one available last time. I got two of the 15' ones so that when work is being done outside the house on under the eaves one can make a platform. But even one of them is great. You can adjust it to use on the staircase when painting, etc.
