I had received this product, Louisville Ladder 8-Foot Aluminum Step Ladder, Type I, W-2112-08S, through the Sparks Reviewer program and this is what I experience. This ladder has a 250 pounds weight capacity. I have been putting off some painting in the house for some time now. I received the Louisville Ladder, which is an 8ft ladder hoping it would be enough to allow me to paint my 10ft walls but was really overstretching and decided to switch it for the 6ft ladder I was using instead. I was initially worried about how safe I would feel with the extra height, but this one actually felt even more stable than the 6ft, it is a bit wider, so even more 'sturdy' on the floor. The handy foldout tray allowed me to safely and easily access my paint can and brushes. It was also light and easy to maneuver and I had no problem lifting and moving it around the room. This ladder is lightweight, durable, feels solid, and perfect for what I required and my overall experience was awesome. Highly recommended!
