Answer: 
No, the PK70-1 LeveLok Leg levelers does not work with the D500-2 series ladders. The only leg levelers that will work with the D500-2 series ladders are the PK80-2 Automatic Leg Levelers. We do not manufacture these factory installed on the ladder.

Answer: 
When using a 40 foot extension ladder, it is recommended to have two people. The D540-2 weighs 99.5 pounds. The weight of the ladder would be difficult for one person to carry and extend into position.

Answer: 
The length of a ladder is measured by the total length of the rails, both sections. If both sections of the ladder are 12 feet long, this would be a 24 foot ladder.

Answers

Answer: 
The V-Rung and Pole Lash assemblies are only designed to be used with fiberglass ladders. These accessories are typically used on a utility pole, where electricty is present and aluminum ladders should not be used. The fiberglass ladders have the predrilled holes to allow for adding accessories to the top of the ladder.

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.
