Test results for 7 ladders from $95 to $299
We tested seven multipurpose ladders for:
- Structural strength
- Ease of use
We also tested five stepladders to see if they'd pass a "walking" test.
- Only one multipurpose ladder passed all our tests.
- Most of the multipurpose ladders aren't very easy to use.
- One stepladder failed the "walking" test.
CHOICE tests are different. We buy the products we test — no freebies from manufacturers. Companies can't buy ads on our site and our work is funded by people like you.
