I have the large Gorilla knock-off of the Little Giant. I think it's a 22 or 23 foot. It's very handy. Can break down into two step ladders to make a scaffold (although I've not used that feature yet). The unequal length leg arrangement for working off stairs is very handy.

I paid $200 for it at Home Depot. They make a smaller one, 13' or so, that sells for $100.

My only beef with the ladder is that it's really heavy. Probably weighs 80lbs. But, it doesn't wobble much!

I echo the sentiment about it being great as a tall step ladder; two He-Men can climb it and won't phase it at all.

When I did the research to buy one, I think I recall reading that Little Giant's patent had expired and so Gorilla and the one that Lowes sells (Werner maybe?) were waiting in the wings to offer a near clone of it. My uncle has the real one, and I see virtually no difference between his and mine.

Anyway, good luck with the real one And don't dent your roof!

I have not taken a good look at the newer versions , guess it's time . What I can say is my original Little Giant has been in continual construction service for 24 years . I'm sure for homeowner use most of them will serve you well , they sure are handy .

we have the little giant and carry it in our tow vehicle as we are on the road often and need to wash and wax the trailer in places other than at home. it has a platform and packs into a small space when folded up. good luck with your purchase.

I had a 17 and just purchased the 22 to gain me a little more height. I gave my 17 to my son. They sell good quality and while pricey, it's really something that is a one time buy. My first Little Giant ladder is over 10 years old and is functioning as well as when it was new. Also Little Giant has some nice accesories like leg extenders, platforms, steps and standoffs that really enhance the functionality.

I caught the guy at the local home show here at the convention center and he sold me his demo unit along with the standoff, leg extension, and platform step.
