I need to purchase the Traction-Tred D rungs. One set. How? I can't find them

Asked by: julio
If you have the mk number on the ladder you can visit our replacement parts store on www.wernerco.com. It will ask you to enter the model and the MK. It should then pull up all the replacement parts available for the D6028-2.

I have this ladder ( D6028-2 28" ) and I can find clamps for a stabilizer. The ladder is thicker then my old Alum. one's. Any help. Thanks
Asked by: bluemonkeyfarm
For use with the D6000-2 fiberglass extension ladders, the Werner Co does offer a stabilizer bar that will attach to the rungs of the ladder, rather than the rails. The stabilizer is kit number AC78.

Can you use a levelok with this model?

Asked by: Joe
The LeveLok Ladder Levelers, model PK70-1 should not be used with a Type I, 250 pound rated extension ladder. The PK80-2 Automatic Levelers should be used with the D6000-2 series ladders.

What is difference between FE1020 and D6020. When I compare, there seems to be no difference between them. On homedepot site, they have difference prices.
Asked by: Raj
Physically, the two ladders are equivalent. The difference between the two units is where the products are sold.

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.
