I weigh 224lbs, should I buy this ladder for occasional use?

I need a ladder for occasional use for small projects or around the house - I'm 224lbs, does that mean it's useless to me if I want to put a can of paint on it?
Asked by: vee
We would not suggest using a type II ladder for safety purposes if you weigh 224lbs. We would suggest purchasing a type I stepladder to support yourself along with any tools or accessories.

Different tool holder

I have an older FS206 that is red, not green, with a different tool holder than the one shown here. Mine is yellow with different hole configurations and I don't think the tools will fit. Why the change in design? I assume the tool holster accessories will not fit my ladder correct? Will the 76-9 pail shelf still fit?
Asked by: Mel
The 76-2 will fit.

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.
