IS THERE A WHEEL KIT FOR THIS LADDER?

Asked by: LJ HARTVILLE
For the P378, you can add casters. Part number 40-2HD comes with two casters. You will need to order two each of 40-2HD to get four casters.

What does the P374 weigh?

Why would you publish the shipping weight, but not the actual weight of the ladder? I don't care how much weight the delivery guy is carrying around. I care about how much I have to carry around the house. This goes for all your ladders. I'm trying to compare weight since that is an important factor to me, but of the 7 I clicked on, not one listed the actual weight of the ladder, only the shipping weight.
Asked by: Insufficient Information
The 17lb listed shipping weight of this ladder is the actual weight of the ladder.

if the black plastic sections were removed from the ladder, would that do anything to the OSHA rateing?

Asked by: Missy
No modifications should ever be made to the ladder. It would not be safe and not in OSHA compliance.

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.
