    Has anyone here used a multipurpose aluminum ladder like this one:

    ?????

    What did you think about it? Would I be better off getting a fiberglass step ladder AND an aluminum extention? Or does this one ladder really do it all??? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I bought one of these and it has worked very well for me. It is very expensive up front,but it kept me from buying multiple ladders.

    Those ladders rock. We had one at work, i used it all the time because it was a lot easier than carrying 2-3 other ladders.

    They're awesome. As noted, they are kinda heavy, but the versatility makes up for it IMO.
