Little Giant Ladders and Accessories

Once upon a time, there was a little giant who needed a way to see the world. And so, that little giant invented a ladder. True story! And by true, we mean "the exact opposite of true." But it's cute to think about, isn't it?

Climb high above the zombies with a ladder. But for non-zombie use, we'd love to hear your reviews on this gear!

I'm just hanging out, really.

I bought this ladder and the accessory pack. GREAT decision! It's easy to set up, sturdy, stable, and the tool holder lets me get more done without climbing up and down. I've had it for a few months and it's been getting a real workout.

Does anyone know if this will work with the Werner style ladders that are similar to the Little Giant?

Why is this described in the Features section as a 22-foot ladder, but in the Specs the max extended height is only 19 feet?

I started out on Burgundy but soon hit the harder stuff. Bob Dylan, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

How on earth did I get 7 QPs?

Model 22 doesn't mean 22 feet. These come in Model 13/17/19 which are 10/15/19 feet extension ladders, not sure where the model numbers come from. . .

"Constructed of aerospace-grade aluminum making it the lightest 22-foot multi-use ladder on the market"

My only guess would be that it's 22 feet long if you lay it down, but if you're actually gonna use the ladder it only reaches 19 feet after you angle it?

I've always wondered if it was that or the top step was at 19'.

If it helps any, our specs are straight from the Little Ladder site:

Just checked out the little Giant website. Same ladder, same price, but includes step accessories and free shipping.....

FWIW - On little giant's website the free platform is only for Classic Type 1A models, not the Alta-One.

But it does still have free shipping, so still a better deal, but the posts above are a little misleading/uninformed.

That rack is only $22.50 at Amazon. The cargo hold is $27.38 shipped. The work platform is $30.

Cheaper and faster shipping at parent company. No deals there.

While these aren't necessarily that good of deals individually, I did find that the 3-Accessory bundle was worth it even with the $5 shipping. It saved me a little overall than buying from Amazon, since I was going to buy them all anyway.

This isnt a good deal. You guys offered this for less a few weeks ago. Very dissapointed in cost of accessories. 4% off suggested retail?

I can only speak for the work platform. I tried it out on my Werner MT-13 ladder tonight. The steps on the Werner are slightly wider than those on my Little Giant Alta-one 17. Also the lower (outer) steps on the Werner are slightly curved .It seems fine to use as a shelf in the middle of the ladder. I think it's fine to use as a step on the outside of the ladder, but with the slightly wider steps and curved outer surface (if you end up resting the bottom on the outer portion of the ladder, it is slightly wobblier than it is on the little giant. I wouldn't recommend doing a jig while you're up there, but I think it's fine to use on the Werner. Actually, once you have your weight on it, it doesn't shift. I plan to use the platform on both ladders. I hope this helps.
Also, I don't see any reason why the tool bag wouldn't work and since the steps of the Werner are slightly wider the wall hanger should work too.

I bought the ladder hanging rack about 6 months ago from Tanga.com for $19.99. I don't think they sell it anymore, but still... means you can get it cheaper elsewhere. I must agree with others, there are no real deals here and I am seeing this a lot from Woot! now. I used to buy a lot of things from Woot! but now visit other sites and buy from them more often. :-(

I don't always use a ladder. But when I do, it's a Little Giant.

Yikes that is expensive. I bought the knock off from Lowes for $99 5 years ago and it's still going strong.

Ok, for all of you saying that its cheaper elsewhere here what I found.

Amazon with work platform - 281 (259+tax w/ free shipping)
Little Giant site - 259, free ship, no tax
Woot - 248 with tax and shipping
Overstock.com - 229 with free shipping and NO tax - WINNER

Basically adding the work platform to your Woot order is the same price on Amazon.

I expect better prices from Woot but it's not a bad deal here.

Depends on how loose your definition of "deal" is. In this case, the "d" word doesn't apply IMHO.

pfffft!

You're right. After doing some shopping around and finding a coupon I got this puppy for $207 from Overstock.com!

It was a coupon I found just searching on google for a new customer. I've shopped on overstock before, but my wife hadnt so I used her info and got the discount.
