Can the ladders both be "giant" if they aren't the same size? Is one more giant than the other?

WHY

WHY DO YOU TORTURE ME BY PUTTING THIS RIGHT AFTER I BUY A COSCO LADDER THEN THROW AWAY THE PACKAGING

If I didn't buy that ladder just weeks ago, I would've bought this in a heartbeat.

Decided my signature is obnoxious.
Have two lines instead.

I have owned one for at least 8 years. Excellent multi task ladder. Very sturdy and well made. Maybe hard to cough up funds for a ladder but you will be so glad you did for many years after.
You will probably develop a series of 'new friends' now that you have a ladder.
Go for one.......will last you a lifetime.
No regrets here.

I fully agree with this post. I used to have the 17' little giant ladder and I loved it. I'm overweight and have weighed anywhere between 250-290lbs and this is the ONLY ladder that I've ever been on that I felt safe on. Granted, I still have issues with heights and can't go higher than 10' or so but on other ladders, I start freaking out at 3-6'. This is the sturdiest and most versatile ladder I've ever had the privilege to own. I just wish I still had it. I loaned it to a guy for a weekend and never saw it again. I highly recommend this ladder!

I own the 17 foot model and its my favorite ladder to use by far. I paid considerably more buying mine direct from Little Giant a few years back.

The Costco version (Little Giant MegaMax 17' Ladder w/Air Deck) is better. 300lb, 17' and has the "air deck" with handle. $219.99 on the site but $199.99 in store.

+1 for loving these ladders. I have the 17' edition (not sure of model) and use it all the time. Recommend the larger one -- worth it for the wheel kit alone. Remember, these are heavier than your standard aluminum ladder (but still very manageable IMO)

Excellent versatile ladder. Had one for five years now. Makes great house warming gift for family members or others.

I bought the Werner 22 foot one at HD last weekend - $129. If I remember from previous times WOOT had these ladders, the Werner is heavier - so far, no complaints (does not have the platform or wheels)

Got this from a previous Woot. One very nice feature is that it fits in my suv, so I can easily transport it to other locations without having to put it on the roof. Very versatile. I sold an extension ladder and an 8' stepladder to offset the cost.

4 months ago my wife bought me the 17' ladder with paint tray and work platform ($259. at another site). It has performed very well for us and feels very solid under my 195 lb weight. Our log cabin has 16' ceilings I used the ladder when installing ceiling fans. Outside I've used it to work on the roof for cabin and the barn.
Rock solid and definitely a step up (several steps actually) from my 19 yr old Versa Ladder .
The rungs are also more comfortable and stable than my old Versa Ladder. Something I really appreciate it when I have to stand on it for long periods.

I have had my little Giant Ladder for well over 8 years, I felt bad spending the level of money I did for it (way more back then from Little Giant Direct) but man its been a real joy using it. The fact it stores into such a small package is nice as its easy to store in my one car garage but the solidness of the ladder is where it shines. I never feel safe on a regular ladder but with this one I do, it just doesn't sway and flex like those regular metal ladders.

If you need a ladder this is a no brainer it's a decent price for a great product. I use mine maybe 6-8 times a year so I don't know if I can attest to its longevity if used daily but its just as solid today (well used it yesterday) as it was when I bought it back in 2006.

I bought a larger one of these when we bought our two story house 7 years ago.

It is sturdy and has lasted well. I love it... except for its weight. It is very heavy. Realistically, you need two people to set it up or take it down, especially if you want to use it as an extension ladder. Once it is up, it is great. And, it has lasted well even though I store it outside. But, that weight and general difficulty when it comes to setting it up and taking it down means it is hard to recommend.

Hmm, It doesn't look like this comes with the trestle brackets, which can be purchased separately for about $30.

Perfect timing. My last M22 ladder I bought off woot got stolen out of my work truck a few months ago. I recently started my own business and have been checking woot for the last week hoping they would post this ladder again. Lucky me!

I have one too. A wheel kit would be lovely because they ARE heavy!!. Very heavy. I was surprised at how heavy. Also nice is to get two platforms not one. One for extended standing on and one to put stuff on. Mind you having one you stand on you have to step around it to get up on it but it is very comfortable to stand on it.

Also would it be possible for WOOT to offer the wheel kit separately for those of us who already have the ladder but no wheel kit? I didn't even realize it could be bought separately.

If you buy two ladders, you do not need brackets and you get set your pick even higher.

I built a very large garage with two of these and between the pick, and the men, and the lumber, we easily had over 800 pounds on the two ladders. I do have the heavier ones.

My wife does not like the handling weight of the Little Giants, but she is happy to use them when I set them up.

For at least the older ones, you can also get foot extensions that allow the ladder to accomodate grade changes and still function as a step laddder parallel to a wall. Uh, these do add even more weight.

I bought the 17 foot version with wheels and work platform when it was offered last time. Do yourself a favor and BUY one. While the ladder is a bit on the heavy side, it's well constructed and versatile. Easy to use, though the work platform is a bit confusing at first. Can't beat the Woot shipping charge either.

It appears that both of these come with the wheels and the platform. Is that correct? I saw other comments stating that you would need to buy the wheels separately.

Yep, it's a big chunk o' change, but this is really a solid deal. Can't find a better price, especially with the included extras, anywhere right now.

I think I may be (up and) down for one of these.

Sure wish Woot! was offering some Little Giant accessories as well, though. Maybe even just a couple of the Essential Accessory packs would be awesome. . . *hint hint*

That looks like a higher-rated ladder, but just noting that it doesn't appear come with the work platform or wheel kit.

You are indeed correct! Wheels & platform come with both models.

Did some price research on this (only for the 15 foot version)-

Note: "wing Enterprises" = Little Giant ladder, it's just the name of the company that makes them.

Note pt 2: I added in shipping costs for this. Maybe the shipping costs will be different to where you are.

As you can see, woot beats all of these prices by a good margin (Around $50 for even the best deal around the web).

Excellent ladder, easy to use all the different functions. Very sturdy as extension ladder or in a-frame shape. Writing this review just to help folks not hesitate to buy it. Either size at these prices is a great deal.

Best I can tell is the way you extend it. This one has the old version U-shaped things you pull out. The Home Depot one (which I also had backordered) used the newer push-button system. Slightly more convenient, but HD couldn't tell me how long it'd take to get mine. Just cnx'd that & ordered this instead.

The weight of these bad boys doesn't bother me. I routinely lug 18-27 lb bags of dog kibble, one under each arm, so even the Alta LG 22 should be easy to manage.

    Utility comparison:
    Senior Plus Large Iams Pro
  • 35+ lbs
  • Unwieldy
  • Single-use
  • No wheels

    Little Giant Alta One M-22
  • 40(ish) lbs
  • Compactible
  • Multi-use
  • Wheels

Also note: to change a light bulb, I need just one Little Giant (approx. $200 on Woot!), and I can change as many light bulbs as I want to. The same task completed using Iams Pro would take approx. 12 bags stacked (between $220-$240 minimum) - and once the dogs are fed, there goes my stepladder. Just FYI.

I own the 22' and find it to be just what I expected...great! Sorry I didn't wrote this post earlier but just had other pressing things to do today.

About 20 years ago, maybe a little longer, my friend Marty was painting his house when the ladder slipped and fell off to the side. Unfortunately, he had no choice but to ride the ladder down. While he landed on a large and thick bush, the fall was severe enough to do damage to his spine. Marty never walked again and passed away about 5 years ago.

He was using one of those aluminum extension ladders with little if any safety features. I made a promise to myself never to buy one of those ladders...not ever! I have since bought my first 22' ladder (same as shown here) about 4 years ago. I actually feel safe on this ladder and it's the ONLY ladder I feel safe on. In spite of feeling safe, I still get someone to hold the ladder for me.

I used one of these to work on my boat, rubbing out and waxing, I never felt a better working platform next to terra firma...I said if woot ever sells them I will buy one...three days later you have them...WOW...wishes do come true.. Can't wait to get mine.. This is a must have item..

It's worth noting that the work platform will typically cost you an extra $30 and the wheels will typically cost you an extra $25.

Both of these being sold here come with the work platform and the wheels. So, when doing price comparisons, make sure to tack on an extra $55 to the alternative if it doesn't come with the work platform and the wheels.

I cancelled my Home Depot order for a 22 footer as well. The couldn't give me any idea when it would be off backorder, so Woot was timely in this offer.

One thing I notice, is the Velocity model (from Home Depot) needs an extra pair of brackets (about $40) to make the 2nd A-frame for use as a scaffold. This model according to the video uses the locking arms to make the 2nd A-frame saving the cost of the extra brackets as well. Yay!

Just ordered one, perfect timing Woot, I just bought a new house. This will come in handy for all the diy projects I have lined up. Haven't been this excited for a Woot in a while.

On another note of saftey, I work as an engineer in the pharmaceutical industry. Safety is a huge concern and ladder safety is something that is trained on annually. Its no joke, tragic things can happen if you do not give ladders their due respect.
