Ladder Details

Features:

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.

Pros

  • The versatility of this ladder is a significant plus point. Use it as an extension ladder that can be folded away after use; a double-side stepladder for two people to work on at the same time; a stairway ladder to access those awkward places when painting and cleaning; and as a scaffold base indoors and outdoors.
  • It is of sturdy, aluminum construction, and is stable in use due to the designed-in safety features.
  • The soft-touch push knobs and J-locks enable you to control and adjust the height easily.
  • Folds away for secure storage anywhere.

Cons

  • Although you can use the ladder as a scaffold set up, a work platform does not come with the ladder. You either use your own planks or buy the Werner aluminum work platform as a separate item.
  • Can be on the heavy side for some ladies to move around on their own.

ConClusion

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.
