After extensive consideration, I purchased this Werner D8220-2ES because safety and longevity were my primary concerns. I could have gotten by with a 200 lb. aluminum Type 3 rated ladder, but felt the 300 lb. fiberglass Type 1A rating would add to the ladder’s overall stability, longevity, and safety. The equalizer level adjustment is an incredibly useful safety feature, especially since my home is built on gently sloping property. I added the AC78 stabilizer, which makes this ladder absolutely rock solid at any height. I wasn’t sure how easy this commercial, heavy-duty ladder would be to manipulate for a single person, but as a 61 year-old, I can easily lift the ladder over my head, walk it around my home, and swing it into any position against my home with no problem at all. With the attached AC78 stabilizer, climbing up the ladder feels like I am walking up a concrete staircase. This ladder is a gem.

I have used nothing but Werner since I started contracting. Everything I use, from the step ladders to the extension ladders, are top notch. I think "To not use Werner means your not using the right equipment."

I have used mine in my business for the last 15 years. I have done things on this ladder I would never dream of doing on any other ladder. I have found it to be very stable. I have used the ladder as a bridge to get back into areas by climbing up one side and down the other to get into a tight corner. It is heavier the other ladders, but for the stability it is well worth it. When I have worn out parts they have been very quick to send out replacement parts. I will buy a third when the time comes.

This ladder is so useful that I now have 3 of them. When I wash our Tahoe or F-150 truck it allows me to safely reach the top and all the windshield. Great for around the house and the shop. I plan to always have once of these handy.

I am a Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Service Technician. I first purchased this ladder to aid in a remodeling project I was doing at home. Living in Wisconsin, I usually used a 6' fiberglass ladder every day for work and having to strap it to a ladder rack full of snow in the winter was a pain. I started using this ladder at work and it's awesome! I can keep it inside my van, it's light, and also is nice to use as a 13' extension ladder. I've had it for 3 years now working with it in a commercial environment and never had an issue. Also very affordable, worth every dime!

I am an older 62 year-old man. I really like this ladder and its versatility. I can use it as a straight ladder to get on top my roof to clean my stove pipe. I can set it up as a scaffold and clean my gutters. I can put it in the back of my pickup, secure it to the ladder racks, and use it to prune and tend to my apple trees. I like the weight, it gives the feel of sturdiness I appreciate and it handles nicely. The easiest way for me to extend the ladder in A position, is for me to get inside the A, release the side locks and extend one side at a time while leaning the other side back. That way I don't have to handle any of the weight, just keep the ladder from tipping over sideways. That is not hard to do with such a wide base footprint.

Different types of ladders are designed to keep you safe and productive when climbing or standing. Using the wrong style of ladder or simply ignoring the limitations of climbing equipment can result in a fall or serious injury.
Height is referring to the actual ladder height. Extension ladders should be 7 to 10 feet longer than the highest support or contact point, which may be the wall or roof line. The highest standing level is four rungs down from the top. The highest permitted standing level on a stepladder is two steps down from the top.

Reach height is the maximum reach assuming a 5’6” person with a vertical 12” reach.
Ladders are designed to safely hold up to a specific amount of weight. The Werner Performance System defines five different capacities using a color and star rating system. The Duty Rating is defined as the maximum safe load capacity of the ladder. A person’s fully clothed weight plus the weight of any tools and materials that are carried onto the ladder must be less than the load capacity.

Werner offers ladder made from fiberglass and aluminum. Each material has characteristics which make it best for certain applications, or one material may simply fit the personal preferences of the user. For example, if working around electricity users should select fiberglass products due to their non-conductive side rails.
