Reaching New Heights with Gorilla Ladders

This review was created as part of a paid affiliate program with the Home Depot.   My first order of business with this and every product review is a disclaimer: I am not a professional contractor. I am a farmer and a fine furniture maker. When it comes to construction and renovation projects, I’m a DIYer and weekend warrior. That said, I doubt many professional contractors will be reading my tool reviews. My goal in reviewing tools and products is to provide honest feedback based on my own use and experience with these tools to other regular folks like me- wanting to get their hands dirty, try new things, and get the best value for their hard earned dollars.

The addition of two 4.5’ Dual Platform Hybrid Ladders has made a pretty significant change in the workflow around the farm. First of all, I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’m pretty short. Adding a compact, sturdy ladder to my woodshop has allowed me to take WAY better advantage of my 15’ ceilings. I’d also like to mention the width/depth of the steps. Once you’re on the top step, you’ve got a comparatively huge surface area to have a solid footing.

In the short time we’ve had these ladders, we’ve certainly put them through their paces. They proved invaluable hanging new fascia, painting the tiny house, and picking summer fruit around the homestead.

Are these $50 ladders a good investment?

Absolutely. They are sturdy, well built, and, quite frankly, a bargain at $50. They aren’t the heavy finger pinchers I grew up using. They are light, compact and have already proved their worth here many times over.
