    I purchased the 12.5 ft. 225lb. model for my father 2 years ago for Christmas. Bought that one on Ebay for $179. After seeing the quality of his, I always thought I would like to have one for myself. Since I am 6’1, and around 205lbs., when I saw this model, which I think is new, at $199 at Amazon, sold by Target, I just had to go for it. I liked the 250lb. rating, and also the extra 3ft. of height. It is a little heavier than the 12.5ft. model, but if you need a little extra height it is a better deal. If you are under 200lbs., and don’t need the extra height, you may want to just purchase the 12.5ft., 225lb. rated model. It will be lighter to carry around. In any case, with both of these models, be careful when extending, and especially make sure you keep your fingers out from between the steps when releasing each section to bring it down. It will definitely pinch your fingers real bad! Aside from that, it is a great alternative to a full blown extension ladder. When fully collapsed it takes up very little room, and it’s great to have if you have a two story home, or anything else that requires more than a step ladder to get the job done. In my opinion the Xtend&Climb products are superior to the Telesteps line in quality and construction.

    The ladder was in line with what others have written and serves my purpose well (small loft condo utility work). It can be a little bendy when fully extended, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as stiff as a proper ladder. Reducing the size (collapsing) can be a little irritating sometimes, as certain rungs will not drop until others do–in other words when you “drop” a segment it sometimes will only drop half-way closed until the next, lower section is also dropped. Not sure if this is engineered to be this way or not. But all in all it serves its purpose well. I call it a yuppy ladder and think it serves that purpose (light, occasional duty while stowing next to the fridge when not used) very well. I felt very comfortable at full extension. Guests are always intrigued, too! I would recommend to someone else with caveats mentioned.

    Great ladder for around home, both inside and out.

    I purchased it to put in the back of the car for repairs and maintenace of my camping trailer.

    It’s easy to carry and easy to use by myself.

    Storage is no problem – it can be put under your bed if you want.

    The great thing about this ladder is that one can place it in the trunk of your vehicle rather then being forced to place it on the roof of the vehicle. Fully extended it is a little flexing… You must pay attention when collapsing it or your will suffer a rather painful pinched finger. Its a fine tool for when you need a ladder to clean the gutters on a ranch house or reach a high wall where there is a vaulted ceiling in side the house. Expensive somewhat justified when the convenience is considered.

    I purchased the 15.5′ 300 LB ladder for my job as a residential insurance adjuster. Prior to this ladder, I had used a 28′ Werner extension ladder which I lugged around to each home I inspected. This ladder is much easier to carry, and extends fairly easily when you get the hang of it. As for pinching fingers, it could be easy to do if you don’t watch what you are doing, but I have yet to get a digit in the way when collapsing the ladder. It feels extremely sturdy, even the portly roofers that I encounter are surprised at how sturdy it is. I still use the extension ladder for two story access in most cases, but this one can’t be beat for ease of use and portability. The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is due to the fact that it seems like it could be just a little easier to extend and retract, and the red stickers that tell you the ladder is not secure should be painted on, as about 6 or 7 have peeled off and have been lost, but there is a green dot that is painted on to tell you that it is secure.

    I am a roofing salesman. With the extend & climb I can drive a fuel efficient car instead of a truck to my appointments. I just set it behind the seat & go. It is very easy to use & put away. It is the future in ladders.

    This is my 3rd telescoping ladder. It is the longest I have owned and feels the safest. The telescoping feature takes some breaking in and getting use to. I pinched my hand at least two times on this sucker but I learned my lesson. The best way to put it down is to take one hand and grab the rung two steps up from where you’re retracting. It takes some getting use to. I recommend when you first buy it extend it all the way 5 or 6 times and get the parts moving. As with all telescoping ladders it can be difficult to extend and retract and temperature effects this also. This is the best way for me to get 24 mpg and run my roofing company. It saves a ton of gas money and keeps my truck parked most of the time. This is a good professional grade ladder and customers are always impressed with how cool I am with it. And let me tell you something ladies… being cool makes guys feel good so it’s well worth the investment.

    This product does what it was designed to do; allow one to reach heights unreachable without using bulky, difficult to manage, ladders.

  9. Dan Says:


    This ladder is so easy to use and takes up very little space. It is perfect for so many things and works better than most telescoping ladders out there. I found the Best price found on Amazon Marketplace. Don’t let the price keep you away. It is worth every dime.

    I purchased the Xtend & Climb 15-1/2-foot telescoping ladder about a month ago. Although the ladder is not inexpensive, I must say it is one of the best purchases of equipment I have ever made. I used it the first day to retrieve something from my roof, something requiring almost all of its length. It was very stable and sturdy, and I felt very safe even at the top. I weigh 210 pounds (40 pounds below the ladder’s max rating), and I felt very comfortable using it. One of the ladder’s best features is storage. Fully “compressed”, the ladder is less than four feet tall, and it easily fits into a very small space. The ladder’s weight is relatively heavy, and it might be a bit difficult for smaller people to handle.

    The engineering that went into the making of this innovative ladder is simply amazing. I use it quite often and also enjoy giving demonstrations to my friends. I’m a gadget guy anyway and this is one of my favorites.
