There is no other ladder that compares to the One Ladder That Does it All . The Little Giant Ladder System is four to five times more tough than ordinary ladders. The Little Giant is made of heavy-wall 6005-T5 aluminum. While it possesses a workload rated capacity of 300 pounds, it has been tested to resist four times that amount without structural failure. Little Giant Ladders are variable. The Model Twenty-Six replaces five different size "A" frames ladders, nine different size extension ladders, two scaffolding trestles with five heights, ten staircase ladders (for working on uneven surfaces) and four 90 degree ladders . This makes it possible for users to get closer to walls and etc, thus leading to a more convenient experience. In fact, it would take practically $800 in run of the mill ladders to take the place of the features of the Model Twenty-Six Little Giant.
