Bought one, this model number includes the "quad pod" which is useful when used as an extension ladder by giving you somewhere to put your tools.
Already own the 6' technical model and absolutely love it compared to normal 6' Werners that are typically used.
Because this has the quad pod for use on corners at full extension, the only thing I can see different/lacking is the metal extension ladder feet. But that doesn't make it worth over $100 more for something most people won't use.

Being able to work directly on a corner or up against a wall with a ladder that is actually designed for it allows a lot of flexibility when working in awkward spots. The ?silicone/rubber? pads are very stable and give you plenty of confidence without marring or tearing up a wall.

The wall pad folds out for corners but also turns into two small tool trays for screws, wire nuts, etc.
If I could fault it on one thing, it would be the lack of useful tool slots/holders. Werner has a better top cap, but Little Giants is an actual step, so I guess compromises had to be made. I particularly miss the slot on the right side of Werners for drill/impact belt hooks and because it doesn't have the flat metal spreaders like a normal ladder, you end up having to get creative with drill placement.

But that's a minor thing when the overall package makes for an excellent ladder.


Edit: I noticed the only other difference between the professional and the technical. the professional is missing the "ground cue" (an audible clack when you step on the bottom rung to indicate that your on the bottom step to help prevent you stepping off on the second step while thinking your on the last one). I've found it useful as someone whos stepped off too soon and appreciate it as a non intrusive safety measure...everyone around me finds it annoying because it's pretty audible across a house.
For me, the 'reach' description is nothing more than creative marketing and ultimately misleading. Not everyone is the same height or same length of arms, so it's basically meaningless. Marketing people should stay out of the description and let the technical folks just tell us the length of the ladder.
Agree 100% - just tell me the maximum height of the ladder like every other ladder tells ya!

Thanks. A ladder post without the reach doesn't make any sense.

Also people have to keep in mind ladders are labeled with max reach, inclusive of some assumed physical reach by the user. It's not the ladder's actual height.

So what no one has said. Is this a decent 'first' ladder for new homeowner to get? 1 story house
edit: I'm going with no. this is a glorified step ladder

Just looking at the pictures on woot it looks like a four-step step ladder with half of it being able to swing up so that you could theoretically go up against the wall better, but that's about it

I have a crappy 30 year old metal 5 foot ladder that I was looking to upgrade from but this is not going to be an upgrade

that doesn't look like you'd be able to stand on the 6th "step" at all... anybody have one and use the top? seems like balance would be really off.
the "extension" layout seems useless on this too. it's only giving you 2 additional steps above a 6ft aframe.

It depends on what kind of homeowner you are.
If you only change lightbulbs, then this is overpriced or "glorified" as you say.
If you do house maintenance, paint, lighting, etc. then this is a very nice ladder.
It's also a short extension ladder for attic access.

It is not just a stepladder, It is easily one of the best ladders in it's class and the only limiting factor is that this one is 5' instead of 6'.
It's also one of the most expensive in it's class as well and a homeowner will find it a stretch to justify the purchase price.

I'm in a trade, do side work, and do any and all work at my house. I bought it as a great backup to my six footer and it will be lighter for smaller tasks.
