We previously listed the reason why our 770p telescoping ladder is our most popular Home Series ladder. This week, we’re going to discuss our most popular Pro Series model: the mighty Xtend+Climb 785p telescoping ladder.
Fully extended, the 785p is a sizable ladder with a platform height of 15.5 feet and a reach height of 19.5 feet. Even so, it’s lightweight, compact and transportable. Let’s look at the features and learn why this is a great ladder for a professional, or even a the DIY homeowner that performs the most rugged jobs. Let’s break it down and look at the highlights.
Lightweight: The 785 weighs in at a svelte 36 pounds, which is remarkably light for a ladder with a 19.5 feet of reach. You can carry a tool box in one hand, and a ladder in the other, and walk up a flight of stairs. None of this comes with a penalty: the 785p: is still ANSI Type I rated for 250 pounds.
Compact: The durability and strength of the ladder also comes at no expense to it’s ability to be compact. The ladder is 36.5 high and 19.75 inches closed. Having a ladder this size has several advantages. It’s easy to store on or off the job site, or to take with you and avoid on-site storage completely.
Transportable: Not only is it able to fit in the back of any pickup truck, it can ride up front in the drivers seat as well. Or loan it to a friend, and they can easily put it in the back of their car. Just make sure they give it back!
Clearly, the 785p is a great telescoping ladder for professionals or organizations that need the advantages of a lightweight, compact and transportable telescoping ladder. It’s a perfect ladder for painters or construction contractors. It’s also widely used in warehouses, manufacturing plants and large-scale facilities such as hotel chains.
Although it’s definitely a professional-grade ladder, don’t write the 785p ladder off for home use, either. With a 19.5 inch reach, it’s our tallest ladder making it the clear choice for homeowners that need to get above the first floor.
