Xtend & Climb Pro Series 785P+ Telescoping Ladder, Blue

The 15.5 feet version of Xtend & Climb’s Professional Series is their tallest telescoping ladder.

It is a heavy-duty ladder used by DIY-ers as well as contractors. It is durable and lightweight, and when retracted, has a storage height of only 36.5 inches.

Telescoping ladders are a suitable replacement for conventional extension ladders and take up a fraction of the space needed for storage.

This Pro Series 785P+ is sufficiently lightweight to be easily carried with one hand and is small enough to be transported in either the front or back of a truck.
