Rated 4 out of 5 by from This ladder works well for around the house use. I own a Werner Extension Ladder. Model D1382-2 I need to replace the rope. What length should i buy?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from can not bring it down because the flippers are plastic the plastic flippers catch on the steps so they won't slide past so you can't bring the ladder down. needs metal flippers. bad design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good ladder, bad rope. This is a good ladder, and as a roofer for the last 25 years I know a thing or two about ladders. The main problem is that when lowering the ladder, the rope tends to track off of the pulley get stuck between the pully and the bracket that holds it to the rung. You are left to either "walk" it down with it stuck in an extended position or push it up to the next rung, lean it in and climb up to the pulley and unjam it. This has been a problem since I bought the ladder, and has happened with nearly all the Werner ladders I have purchased. I seem to remember back in the day that the pulleys were made of METAL, not plastic.

I'm trying to compare the actual ladders weights, not load capacity.

After 25 years it's time to replace my 24' type 1A fiberglass extension ladders. Borrowing a 28' type 1 aluminum was eye opening as to the weight difference. Where can I compare how much each ladder weighs?
Asked by: Dave the window cleaner
You can go to the following website and see the model numbers for the 28' aluminum extension ladders: http://www.wernerco.com/us/en/products/climbing-equipment/extension-ladders?ipp=24&cp=1&sort=default&tts=1467999705019 To see the detailed information on the ladder, click on view details. You will find the shipping weight under specifications.

Separate base from fly on ext ladders and safely utilize?

Can all of your aluminum extension ladders be separated (base from the fly) and safely be used individually? Are there only certain ladders (5 star vs 3 star for example) in which this practice is deemed acceptable?
Asked by: Camsaw
Not all Werner extension ladders may be separated and used as individual ladders. Certain ladders may be separated and used as the base section only, while some the base and the fly section may be used separately. Only some Type IA and Type IAA may be used in this manner. To use the fly section as a single ladder, the ladder must meet codes for a straight ladder, as well as have the proper slip resistant shoes. All instructions for how to properly use the ladder, and which ladders may be used separately are labeled on the side of the ladder.

Need 30' ladder

I need a 30' ladder, aluminum, Type 1, width 17-1/2" that is NOT an extension ladder. It should be one piece. Do you make this type of product. It's for our Intel Santa Clara campus.
Asked by: Stephen
The longest available single section straight ladder is a 24' aluminum ladder, model number 524-1. This ladder is 20-5/8 inches wide. The longest straight ladder under 17-1/2 inches is the 20' model 520-1.

Adjustability of shoes for working on sloped surfaces?

What is the steepest cross slope that can be safely accommodated with the stock shoes on this model of ladder? I'm guessing that it's approximately 3 degrees (since each shoe has about 1" of vertical travel and the ladder is approximately 17.5" wide) -- is this correct? What type of cross slope can be accommodated if I add on one of the level legs?
Asked by: Mike
The extension ladders should be used on even, level ground, when used without levelers. The feet have the vertical travel to allow the foot to swivel to be used with the spur plate, or to lock the shoe into the flat position. When levelers are installed, the feet have a maximum of 8-1/2 inches of adjustability.

Can foot be positioned 180 degrees from "spur position"

It appears that your ladder feet can rotate 90 degrees forward or backward from the neutral position. Rotating 90 degrees towards the user achieves the "spur position", and rotating 90 degrees towards the wall would place the shoe holder in contact with the ground? Is there any use for this position? Does it allow the ladder to be used on sloped or non-level surfaces?
Asked by: Mike
The ladder feet should only be used in the spur position, or the flat position where the slip resistant foot pad is on the ground. Having the ladder rest on the other end of the swivel foot does not provide a slip resistant foot.

Continuous Rope

I bought a used D1324-2, 24' extension ladder. I cannot figure out how to hook up the continuous looped rope to the fly section of the ladder. There is a clamp on the rope that appears to attach to the 3/8" rope, but I have not had any success. Please send me a illustration for the proper use of this rope system. Thank you.
Asked by: Rampy
We would be more than happy to send you the instructions for the rope. If you would like to contact us Monday-Friday from 8am-5pm EST at 888-523-3370 and provide us with an email address or fax number, we would be more than happy to send you the information you need.

Will the PK70-1 leveler with base units work on this ladder.

I have this same model but it is about 16 or 17 years old. I assume it has remained about the same. Interesting to see the same model is still made after this long. I wanted to verify the PK70-1 will work with it. I would assume it does since it is listed in the accessories on the page for the ladder when +more is clicked.
Asked by: decman35
The PK70-1 leg levelers are designed to fit current Werner Model Ladders. Installing the levelers requires drilling into the ladder, using precise templates for alignment.

My roof gutters are 28' above ground level. Can I use a 32' extension ladder for gutter cleaning or do I need a 36' ladder?

Asked by: Mike
You would want to go with the D1336-2 in order to work safely on gutters at the 28ft height.

I have a D1332-2. Can I use either the PK70 or PK 80? What is the difference between the two?

Asked by: Don
The D1300-2 series Aluminum Extension Ladder can use either the PK70-1 or the PK80-2 ladder levelers. The PK80-2 Level Master is an automatic leveler where both legs will adjust to height by setting the ladder on the ground. Installation requires the feet of the ladder to be cut off by using templates to mark the leveler location. The leveling feet become the permanent feet of the ladder. Please see the link below for further information. http://us.wernerco.com/en/view/Products/Climbing-Equipment/Accessories/PK80-2/PK80-2 The PK70-1 LevelLok Levelers have two base units, one attaches to each side of ladder, and the leveling foot can be used on either side as needed. The ladder will keep original feet, but use the leveler on each side as needed. http://us.wernerco.com/en/view/Products/Climbing-Equipment/Accessories/PK70-1/PK70-1

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.
