    Wife got me the extreme for my birthday. Haven't used it yet for actual work but it seems really sturdy even when you are up high. It's one of those things thats hard to justify spending that kind of money but I know when I use it it will be worth it.:D

    Got a short 3'ft onebest ladder ever, period. Had lots of cheaper ones almost dump me on my head. They wear out, get shaky. For the price of the ladder my good health is worth the cost.

    They're great ladders! I've got 3 different sizes at my house now (I'm renovating, I only own the middle sized one but friends and family brought over the other 2 to use). Very handy to have, easier to store than long extension ladders. Only gripe is they're very heavy and can be akward to move around.

    well i guess the heaviness is why they put wheels on the one side which is fine except when you go up steps.I should have gotten this years ago as all my other houses were two stories and painting those big hallways was always a treat. This thing really is built good and is made in America too!

    I bought 15 of Little Giant ladders about 2 years ago from Woot. I took one home and used the other ones at my work.

    They are heavy but, we have had zero problems with them. Just make sure the latches are all the way in and clean.

    Well a little heavy not that bad though. Love the secure feeling it gives though even on the top rung.
