The Original Articulating Ladder

You want safety. You want strength. And, of course, you want versatility. That's why millions worldwide have chosen the original Little Giant Ladder System.

Now there's a ladder as versatile and hard-working as you.

Little Giant Classic is a true professional-grade ladder, combining the strengths of traditional A-frame ladders, extension ladders, stepladders and even scaffolding, all in one convenient package.


The Little Giant Classic is designed to be safe, stable and secure. Since it's adjustable, the Little Giant can be used safely on stairs, ramps, curbs, docks or other uneven surfaces. And, with the new patented triple-locking hinge, the Little Giant Ladder is sturdier than ever in the extended position.


The Little Giant Classic ladder is made of heavy-wall, 6005-T5 aluminum, the very same material used in aerospace construction. So it's ultra-strong while remaining light and portable. In fact, the Little Giant Type 1A is government-rated to hold up to 300 pounds but has survived brutal stress testing of up to 1200 pounds with absolutely no structural failure.


Little Giant Classic ladders give you the ultimate in versatility. Independent tests prove the Little Giant will replace 60-70% of all portable ladders currently being manufactured.

When you buy a Little Giant (model 17), you're not just getting one ladder. You're getting 24 different ladders in one convenient model. Plus, the addition of easy roll wheels makes your Little Giant easy to maneuver and store.

Little Giant Ladder Configurations

  • A-Frame

    A-Frame Ladder

    With a simple click of the patented hinge, the Little Giant can be used as a traditional A-Frame ladder.

  • staircase

    Staircase Ladder

    Because it's adjustable in one-foot increments, the Little Giant allows one side of the ladder to be extended allowing safe use on uneven surfaces like staircases, curbs or docks.

  • 90 degree

    90° Ladder

    Traditional ladders make working close to walls nearly impossible. With the Little Giant, one adjustment allows you to safely work against any vertical surface.

  • extension

    Extension Ladder

    For large projects the Little Giant easily converts to a stable extension ladder allowing you to reach rooftops, tree limbs and more with ease.

  • scaffolding


    Since the Little Giant pulls apart to form two scaffold trestles, you just add the Little Giant work plank (sold separately) to form a convenient scaffolding system.

The high quality I expected.
There's really no comparing this high quality ladder with competitor's copies. At the price you can have one at littlegiant.com, you get a solid product made of high quality materials with clever features and a host of accessories you can add. The one caveat is that it is a bit heavy, but this is a work ladder, not a flimsy knockoff. I've only used it a bit, but am very happy that I purchased it.
I wouldn't have any other ladder
I have the first original one I have had it for years and it's still working great best ladder I every had.
Great ladder!
I bought the 1a 26 in order to reach the highest ceilings in my house when the ladder is in A frame mode. Fantastic ladder! Now the thing is heavy but that's because it is so solidly built and I chose to buy the largest model. And when I'm 12 ft off the floor on a ladder, I want a solid feel. It rolls easy but isn't a ladder to pickup and carry around. While I had it out my wife even used it to take care of some decorating she has up high on a book case. Again it is heavy but I'm very happy with the purchase. if you don't need to reach 11 or 12 feet on an "A frame" ladder you can get the smaller models which weight quite a bit less. There's nothing around the house I can't reach now and I feel a lot more comfortable up high than I did before. Quailty built ladder!
The best ladder I've ever owned.
I just purchased the Classic Model 17 and used it this last week. I'm 73 years old and was able to change the battery in a smoke detector that was about 15 feet high.
I was able to extend it full length by myself. I also used it as a step ladder and found it actually fun to set up.
Good picking
I used the ladder to pick my apricots that I couldn't reach with my 6' step ladder. It worked very well. I'll be using it to pick nectarines, peaches and apples this year and cherries next year.
