The Werner MT Series is a telescoping aluminum ladder design, rated at 300 pounds capacity, that effectively provides four ladders in one:
An extension ladder, twin stepladder (300 pounds capacity on each side), stairway ladder and scaffold.
This review is about the 22 feet model. Other sizes are 13, 17 and 26 feet versions.
The Werner MT22 is a versatile telescoping ladder that can help you do most jobs inside your house and outdoors.
It has 28 different working heights, and can be configured as an extension ladder, double-sided A-frame (step) ladder, stairway ladder, and can be set up as a pair of scaffold bases when used with a work platform.
It is of sturdy construction with double-riveted steps and slip-resistant feet - both good for safety - and has a flared top and bottom for firm and stable support.
It has an easy-to-use system of soft-touch push knobs and J-locks to adjust the ladder to the length and configuration that you need.
It’s easy to transport too so that you can take it anywhere. And it stores neatly and compactly when your task is over.

What most owners love about the Werner MT-22 is that it can be easily moved around and adjusted, and used for almost every job you need to do at home. It is an immensely popular ladder.
Some say it is heavy’ ish, but let’s face it - if you buy a ladder that you can use as an extension ladder as well as a step and stairway ladder, there has to be some trade-off for it being sturdy enough to perform all these different tasks.
There are also some comments over the fact it is made in China, but never-the-less, it is an excellent ladder, at a reasonable price, and is highly rated.
One of the problems of owning a rigid extension ladder is that of storage. It can put some people off. But with the MT22 you don’t have that problem. You have a ladder that you can fold and slide down when the job is done and easily stow it away.
Werner is one of the main manufacturers of extension ladders, and this telescoping design is an excellent example of what they do best.
