The Best Garage Ladder

There’s a slope in the driveway next to my garage. When I climbed the A-frame ladder to install a security camera, I could not keep the ladder stable. If I had used a Revolution ladder, I could have ratcheted down one of the ladder legs to compensate for the slope.

The Little Giant Velocity is an excellent ladder, but if you have any sloping surfaces, get the Revolution model instead. The Revolution gives you locking ratches in the legs to compensate for slopes in the ground surface. Even if you have only a few uneven spots, the Revolution is the better ladder.

The only real competition to the Little Giant Ladder are the new Little Giant models. For even, flat surfaces, the Velocity is the best ladder. For uneven footing, the Revolution ladder compensates for bumpy and off-balance surfaces.

The Little Giant Revolution is the Best Ladder

The Little Giant Revolution has adjustments in the legs to compensate for uneven ground. The ratchet leg levelers get longer and shorter to allow you to keep the ladder rungs horizontal. The 17 ft. ladder version is at the Amazon link below.

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.
