The only complaint I have with the Little Giant is that it is heavy. I have a 8' Werner convertible step ladder that I like a lot. It can be used as a step ladder or extension ladder. And it weighs a lot less than the Little Giant. In fact I like it so much I also have a 6' version of the same ladder. I don't know if Werner still makes it, mine have been around a while and they did cost more than a standard step ladder. But if you can find one check it out.
