The Best Garage Ladder

The Little Giant is Still the Best Ladder

The "steps" mode

The only real competition to the Little Giant Ladder are the new Little Giant models.

For home and garage, the best ladder is the Velocity model, unless you have uneven ground.

Get the Revolution model for bumpy and off-balance ground.

When to Use the Revolution

Revolution Ladder

There’s a spot on my driveway next to my garage that slopes downward for drainage.

I put a “regular” A-frame ladder in that spot, but there was no way to get both feet on the ground.

The Revolution Ladder ratchet levelers would have allowed me to compensate for the difference in grading.

Even if you have only a few uneven spots, the Revolution is the better ladder.

The Velocity vs. the Revolution Ladders

The Velocity and the Revolution are both:

  • lightweight
  • have wheels for transport
  • transform into scaffolding (trestle and plank)
  • transform into staircase (one side higher than the other)
  • transform into A-Frame (both feet flat on the ground)
  • transform into an extension ladder (one long ladder frame)

The Revolution has some wonderful overkill in its locks and screws, but the Velocity is already safe.

The real difference is that the Revolution has the ratchet levelers for uneven ground.

How to Make a Scaffold from the Little Giant Ladder

I love that you can turn a Little Giant ladder into a scaffold.

I don’t like standing on ladder rungs, but a nice, flat scaffold doesn’t hurt my feet at all.

Both the Velocity and the Revolution have the ability to transform into a trestle and plank (a scaffold).

Think of two saw horses holding a plank. The ladder comes apart, and the two pieces become your saw horses.

You now need braces and a plank.

These are sold separately.
