Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed the metal guide that keeps the 2 pieces together jumped the track, basically nullifying the ability to extend it. Have tried multiple ways to fix it to no avail.I am a large man and need a large capacity extension ladder, but this has not worked out, for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality with an excellent price. Purchased this a few months ago and appreciate the stability which standard aluminum ladders can't seem to provide.

At what wrung should this ladder not be extended past

Pulley system would go only so far. So I manually extended the ladder until It reached the rung just below the pulley height. Was this correct or should I have stopped when the pulley failed to go any higher.
Asked by: J
Do not extend the ladder beyond the 4th rung from the top of the ladder.

Proper Ladder Set Up Range

At full extension what is the range of angles with the ground that the ladder can be set up at so as to achieve the ladder's full load rating.
Asked by: Greg
The proper set up for an extension ladder is at the 4 to 1, height to distance from wall ratio. For every 4 feet the ladder is extended, the base of the ladder needs to move 1 foot away from the wall surface.

On the D524-2 24 ft Type IAA, the base and fly separate easily for use as an extension or two single sections. Does the same apply to this D6228-2 28 foot ladder?? Do the base and fly separate easily and can they be used as an extension or two single sections??

Top ladder portion is mounted behind the bottom ladder...

Just purchased this ladder from Home Depot. It works fine, but I just noticed that the top ladder is mounted underneath the bottom ladder, instead of on top as it appears in the above picture. Does this matter? Everything else works and is mounted correctly, it's just set up for the top ladder to be mounted underneath. Is this a safety issue? Should I return the ladder? Thanks for the help and advise...
Asked by: Rich
Please call Customer Care at 888-523-3370, as we will need pictures of what you described. Please do not use the ladder, until we review the pictures.

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.
