John Dirks Jr Posted April 19, 2010 Report Share Posted April 19, 2010 I have an aluminum 32' ladder. I can just barely handle it on my own. One problem I have is setting the feet on a hard surface like a concrete sidewalk. I'm not quite tall enough (5-11) to walk my hands up the rungs to get it standing on the house. What happens is, the feet kick out. When I set the feet on the lawn, they don't slide out and I can get it done alone. Now, in every case that I have used my 32' ladder, a 28' could have also done the job. I'm thinking about trading my 32' for a 28'. I believe I could handle the 28' much better while working alone. What do you think of the idea of swapping to the shorter 28 footer? How many situations to you think I'll run across that the 32' would have done the job but a 28' not?
