About Little Giant Xtreme Ladder

Have you seen an infomercial for the Little Giant Xtreme Ladder, which claims to combine 24 ladders into one, and to be the safest, strongest, and most versatile ladder system in the world? If so, you’re definitely wondering whether or not any of these claims are true, and whether or not the Little Giant Xtreme is worth the high price.

So let’s take a closer look at these claims and find out if the Little Giant Xtreme really is the “last ladder you’ll ever have to buy.”

How the Little Giant Xtreme Claims to Work

Available in 3 different models (Model 17 extends to 15’, Model 22 extends to 19’, and Model 26 extends to 23’), the Little Giant Xtreme is a ladder system that claims to combine 24 ladders into one, including a stable, wide-flared extension ladder, a multiple-height A-frame stepladder, a 90-degree ladder, a staircase ladder, and a time-saving trestle-and-plank scaffolding system. In addition, one of the key differentiating factors compared to other ladders is that the Little Giant Xtreme includes built-in Dual Ratchet Levelers in each leg, which are claimed to give you up to 9.5 inches of adjustment on each side, and to provide a stable hold on uneven or sloping terrain.

All Little Giant Xtreme models also include non-slip rubber feet, rungs that are 50% wider for added foot support, quad lock hinges for solid adjustment capabilities and quick and easy setup, Rock Locks that give you the ability to change the ladder’s height and configurations with just one click, and a safety rail that gives you something to hold on to when you’re at the top of the ladder. Additional features include adjustability in one-foot increments, a built-in comfort step that claims to make you feel just like you’re standing on the ground—even though you’re near the top of the ladder—and Tip & Glide wheels that allow you to move from one place to another quickly and easily.

Little Giant Xtreme Accessories

Little Giant Xtreme Ladders also come with a variety of accessories that are claimed to make many jobs easier, including an AirDeck Workstation that keeps all your tools and supplies right where you need them. The AirDeck also features a special section for screws, nuts, and bolts, and even a cup holder.

In addition, the FuelTank Paint Tray attaches directly to your ladder and can hold an entire gallon of paint, which includes a magnetic brush holder so you won’t have to worry about dropping brushes when you’re not using them. On top of this, the FuelTank’s special plastic polymer construction means that you can just let the paint inside dry once you’re finished, and then peel it off afterward.

Finally, the Little Giant Xtreme can pull apart into two different trestles, which, when combined with the removable trestle brackets, gives you the ability to turn your Little Giant Xtreme into stable and secure scaffolding, work bench, or saw stand (note: you’ll need to purchase the optional plank in order to achieve this).

Little Giant Xtreme Pricing & Refund Policy

The Little Giant Xtreme 17 is priced at 4 payments of $89.95 plus free FedEx Ground shipping (will arrive fully assembled), bringing your total to $359.80. Other models are available, including the Little Giant Xtreme 22 ($399.96) and Little Giant Xtreme 26 ($459.80). Built-in Dual Ratchet Levers will cost extra for each model.

However, keep in mind that UT and NV residents will be charged sales tax

Regardless of which Little Giant Xtreme model you choose, if you opt for the single payment, your order will also include:

  • AirDeck Workstation
  • Tip & Glide Wheels
  • Fuel Tank Paint Tray

All Little Giant Xtreme Ladders come with a 60-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges, and a lifetime warranty against defects (normal wear and tear is not covered). In order to initiate a refund or to file a warranty claim, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-280-7163.

Keep in mind that Little Giant Xtreme Ladders are also available through a wide variety of third-party retailers, including Home Depot, QVC.com, Walmart, Sears, and many more.

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About the Little Giant Xtreme?

Overall, it appears that Little Giant Xtreme Ladders have an overwhelmingly positive online customer reputation, with the most common compliments referencing its versatility, ease of use, and high-quality construction.

On the other hand, some of the most common complaints regarding the Little Giant Xtreme cite high price, its relative heaviness, and that your feet can begin hurting if you have to stand on the rungs for long periods of time (although this could be said about most ladders as well).

In addition, Little Giant Ladder Systems based out of Springville, UT holds an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau, and the company’s customer service department appears to handle complaints quickly and effectively.

Bottom Line: Will the Little Giant Xtreme Ladder Be the Last Ladder You Ever Purchase?

Based on the Little Giant Xtreme’s very high reputation among online consumers, it’s likely that you’ll be pleased with your purchase, and that the ladder will provide you with years of reliable service. However, there are a couple things you should keep in mind prior to placing your order.

First, the Little Giant Xtreme has a 300lb weight capacity, so if you’re nearing this weight (or tend to carry very heavy things on your ladder), this may not be the best choice.

In addition, Little Giant Ladder Systems’ customer service department is only available M-F, so if something goes wrong or you need assistance during the weekend, you may have to wait a couple days. Admittedly, while this typically won’t present a problem, it could be a hassle if you’re in the middle of a weekend project.

Finally, the Little Giant Xtreme weighs about 30 pounds (or more, depending on your model), so if you’re dissatisfied with the ladder and decide to return it, shipping costs could be very expensive. In fact, some online customers have complained return shipping can be nearly $200, depending on carrier and shipping method you choose. However, the good news is that you can avoid this by purchasing your Little Giant Xtreme from a local retailer.

    Little Giant Fan

    • Oklahoma,
    • Nov 16, 2016

    I own three, for jobs at varying locations and because I hate to ever be without one. In my opinion, all the hype and salesmanship is justified. These are indeed lifetime assets and I've yet to damage one save for splattered paint.

    They are as safe as claimed and I don't find the weight a distraction. My only problem is remembering how to use all the various setups and combination of uses. I own every attachment and am similarly happy with them. I do NOT believe it is over priced. I am completely satisfied.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Excellent!

    Earlier this year, my boyfriend investigated this ladder and its reviews. He ordered and received it on time. No problems with online purchasing. After completing several home project, his review of the product is that the product is excellent and does everything it claims and is easily adjustable to work difficult jobs.

    Wheels and ratchet levers are a "must have." He felt balanced and secure with hard to reach jobs. Weight is definitely heavier but that's the difference in older wooden ladders. I still have my old ones, but i don't ever use them.

    Little Giant is well worth my money! I don't have my boyfriend's order number to confirm this review, but I'm legit.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Little Giant Extreme

    As a retired electrician, general contractor and homeowner fo 40+ years, I've used a few ladders. A couple of years ago I purchased a 22 foot Little Giant Extreme. While as a step ladder it's use seems to be functional, I strongly urge anyone considering a purchase of this ladder to be used a straight ladder, to do so with Extreme Caution. This ladder, extended to 14 feet, leaning against the gable end of my garage, is flexing, in the middle, with no one standing on the ladder.

    This ladder is said to be rated at 300 lbs.

    About a year ago, the Extreme flexing nature of this ladder,contributed to a fall which dislocated my right shoulder.

    Over 40+ years, I have used many extension ladders, and none have ever flexed while climbing or working from them.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Is the Little Giant worth it?

    When I was first given the Little Giant Ladder to use, I didn't like it. It was too heavy and too much of a pain to set up. But after working with it for a couple months now, there isn't a ladder I trust more.

    Yes, it's heavy. But if you spend most of your day on roof tops or working on fascia and soffit jobs, you'll learn that heavy means strong and stable. I've been up 20+ feet on a extension ladder, and when the wind comes up and you start to sway and shake, and you can't get down fast enough. Not with the Little Giant. Stability is of extreme value the further up you are off the ground. The design of the ever widening rungs as you get near the base, helps the stability greatly. The way I see it, if you spend any of your time 10-25 feet (or more) off the ground, then you want the most reliable and stable platform available, because the butt I'm saving is my own. I've found that, when it comes to my well being, the security you get with the Little Giant Ladder is worth the extra bucks.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Little Giant Xtreme

    • Montreal, Canada,
    • Jul 10, 2015

    Bought the Xtreme and it's the best ladder period. Not heavy at all. If you find it heavy (for what it is), then you need to workout.

    So good that I bought a Revolution model for my father, just wish the ratchet levelers option was around when I got mine. Tried them out at Costco road show and they are amazing and well worth the extra $59.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Top notch

    • Minnesota,
    • Mar 15, 2015

    Top notch quality here: made in the US, lifetime warranty, welded rungs, built in ratcheting legs, & rock locks.

    The extra weight that all these style of ladders have can very much be offset by the way you carry them. The right way is to slide your arm through a set of rungs to the outside of the ladder. Then bring your arm down to a natural position and grasp a rung that's about at your waist height. This makes a huge difference.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    That phone number sucks

    • West Linn, Oregon,
    • Dec 18, 2014

    We ordered what we saw on TV because of the leg levelers. Didn't get them. Have called many numbers and they always have me voice mail extension 341. No return call. Every one wants me to pay an extra 59.00 and send this one back. Humbug. What a rip off and no satisfaction.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
