Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Walmart only sells the 13 and 17 foot versions of this ladder but the manufacturerer also offers a 21 foot version. I bought the 17 footer not knowing the taller option existed. The 21 foot ladder would have been heavier and more expensive but I think more useful to me in the long run. You can see from the photo that even at full extension the ladder does not reach high enough for some my needs. I'm also a little irked that Walmart lowered the price $20 days after mine was delivered.

The ladder is build very solidly, reconfigures with easy and I see very little difference between this ladder and the Little Giant. Many people were asking on line if Little Giant working platform and accessories shelf are compatible with this ladder. I purchased both and can say that they do not fit perfectly due to some difference between hang points on two ladders caused probably by difference between rungs shape. Despite fact that the compatibility is not perfect, I use both of them successfully and do not feel unsafe when on the altitude. Namely, the attachments are not perfectly level, leaning slightly toward the ladder, which I found even more secure, as this tilt makes me rather hugging the ladder than lose balance and fall back. The bottom line - I am very happy with my new ladder serving me very well in my home improvement project, after purchase of beautiful but suffering disrepair, home.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

The rungs are comfortable which really helps with the footing. Just the right height to getting to gutters for a typical one story house. It is a little heavy, but is because ladder is well made. A few people complained about oil or some type of black coming off on them, no idea what they could have been referring to, the ladder is silver and didn't see oil. Then there was a few that said you needed 2 people to adjust it, (No You Don't). I am a female in my late 50's with a very bad back and severe loss of upper body strength due to a auto accident and I adjust the ladder by myself with no help whatsoever. Have since thrown the box away but I believe it states the ladder weighs 35 lbs. so it it heavy, but sturdy which makes me fell very comfortable climbing to the roof. I do have a 2 other very good ladders, but neither which made me feel secure and unafraid climbing up to the gutters. You will need the 17' for the typical one story house, 13' would be to short. But if your home is 2 story then you would need to go to a longer extension ladder.

This ladder might be OK if it weren't for 3 things mentioned in other reviews, but really annoying to me: 1) the "mill finish" that Cosco cites leads to black all over your hands, there was some with other ladders but not like this. 2) the latching mechanism is similar to Vulcan, but the hinge and latch do not engage positively nor as securely as on the Werner or Little Giant 3) the construction is a bit less tight than the Werner or Little Giant comparable to the Vulcan So although the design seems OK, the implementation was not as good as competitive ladders available for about the same price (see HFT Vulcan for instance). The mill finish that leaves more residue on my hands than any other ladder I've ever owned was the killer for me, back to the store!

I live in a one story house and this ladder does everything I need it to..I use it inside for things like painting and changing light bulbs and batteries in smoke detectors and to get into the attic..and outside it is the perfect height for cleaning the gutters and getting on the roof if needed..It is a little heavy..but to me that just means its well made..Its easy to set up and adjust and its every ladder I could ever need and takes up very little space..I can actually store it in a small closet in the house and not even know its there...and the price was great..you cant hardly buy a good quality step ladder with a 300lb. capacity for this price.let alone a 17' extension ladder..no need for multiple ladders for different jobs ..this one does it all....cudos

  • A. This is one area where I believe the Little Giant and Werner are a safer alternative, when used as a roof ladder. All the 17' multi-ladders can be extended to nominally 17', but the latching mechanism is far sturdier in the Little Giant and Werner IMO and according to many reviews. Now I have used the very similar Vulcan 17' not quite fully extended to get up to my garage roof and it is every bit as sturdy as a good extension ladder for the 13-15' rise. I do question the Cosco latch's sturdiness in this configuration, and this has been reported on other reviews as a problem.
