I know you jest, but I'm 215 lbs at 6'0" and under 15% body fat. If I was holding a bucket of water or a tool box I'd technically be exceeding that limit, which seems ridiculous because I'm not what somebody would consider an especially big guy. I'd hope that limit was one of those written by lawyers and the truth is you could probably put a 500 pound dude on there and be OK as long as he didn't jump up and down.

Is this the same model? What does it go on sale for at costco? The one on their website says it holds 300 pounds.

The one Costco sells says it goes up to 7 feet as an A-frame. I'm pretty certain it is actually taller than 7 feet, but 7 feet is how high up the highest safe step is.

Weight ratings on ladders are the maximum safe working load, meaning that if you exceed it you are comprising safety by increasing the flex of the ladder and the possibility of it breaking. 500 lbs on a type I would be courting death.

Fully extended this so-called 17' ladder is only 15' so it maxes out at 7' total height in A-frame mode with the highest safe step being a couple feet shy of that. As an extension ladder a 15' total height will safely get you to the roof of a building no more than 10-11' feet high due to a necessary few feet extending above the gutter and pythagorous.

Little Giant looks like a good ladder. I have been looking at the 22' but with 15" ceilings I'm not sure if that would be enough.

Hardly courting death! The true weight rating is likely a multiple of what they are allowed to publish on the side of the ladder. My 225-250# body has spent plenty of time on a ladder 'rated' at 200lbs without a moment's concern. Would I extend it fully and use it for a springboard...no. Do I feel save climbing it under normal conditions...sure.

I doubt Pythagoras developed his theorems while on an articulating ladder. laugh out loud

at work we send 350+ lbs guys up ladder rated at 225lbs all the time. those ladders tend to bend, and one of the steps broke on one once. however, any of the 250lb haven't broke but they flex. we have a little giant rated at 250lb, it's much much sturdier. Those guys really like it

You are exceeding the safe working load limit by 10-20% not doubling it like the other guy was talking about.

Wow, so what logic are they using to call it a 17' ladder if it's only 15'? They must have some explanation or they'd be hit with a class action suit eventually.

Extension ladders are referred to by the total length of their individual parts, but due to needed overlap their max extension is a few feet less. For example, a 24' extension ladder is mad of two 12' sections so with a 3' overlap it's max extension is actually 21'.

This ladder is the equivalent of a 17' extension ladder which would be made from two 8.5' sections. With a couple feet of overlap, a 17' extension ladder has the same 15' overall length as this 17' Little Giant.
