On occasion, I like to pimp out some of the tools I use on a daily basis. This one is no exception, and I highly recommend it for your garage or workshop. I don’t go anywhere without my Keller Multiladder. I think the first time I saw a ladder of this nature, it was the Little Giant infomercial that caught my eye as I thought, “Hey, this is an infomercial product I MIGHT actually buy.” Needless to say, I was intrigued. The price of over $300 was a bit out of my price range; however, my Keller version was under a hundred bucks and easily meets or exceeds the standards of the Little Giant. Here’s why I love it!
First off, this ladder really does do the job of 15 different ladders (not to sound like the infomercial). I use it as a step ladder for paint projects, anywhere from 3′ to 5′ depending on how you extend the legs. The nice thing is, you can actually use both sides of this step ladder and even straddle the top for more stability when reaching those heights. But wait! There’s more!
I also use my Keller as an extension ladder for rooftop access (up to 10′), as a scaffold support when I’m installing siding, and for offset situations such as stairwells and hillsides. It’s an understatement to say it covers a wide variety of uses! And when I’m finished for the day, it packs up into a nice, convenient size and stores nicely under a shelf in my work trailer.
Finally, I have to comment about its durability. Granted, this is a smaller ladder, but it carries a workload of 250 pounds, has a widened base & large rubber footings for stability (on both ends), and really does have a sturdy feel while I’m using it.
Hey, I know I sound like an infomercial, but, really, I’m not getting any kickbacks from Keller (at least at moment – ha ha). This is just a heck of a product at a great price with versatility that can’t be beaten! This style ladder comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and ratings from a number of makers (Keller, Werner, Little Giant). Bottom line is this: don’t be caught without one in your garage!
