Ladder purchase advice


Looking for a 24 foot ladder but don't want to spend a bundle on one. Basic need is for general home owner maintenance and remodeling projects, not a contractors grade, use every day type needed. Any advice? Home depot has several in my price range of right around 200-250 or so.

You should check craigs list before buying new, many deals to be had out there.

Good point, but I am far from a major city. I will though.

I just looked in my area and there are many many, but I am near a major. It might be worth a drive though, if you get a good enough deal

I just checked all the twin cities lists, many ladders on there, but it would cost me 100 dollars in gas to save 100 dollars!

Too bad Craig's list isn't a viable alternative for you. About a month ago I got a brand new (still had the foam wrapped around the rungs) 22' Little Giant with optional work platform and adjustable extender leg for $150.

I see that, there are many of them. Closest is a 26 ft rated at 250lbs, aluminum, and it is only 100 miles away. $150
