What it claims to do: The Gorilla Ladder claims to be a Professional Grade all-in-one ladder. It boasts an impressive 20 different positions,
4 unique functions, and the ability to hold 300 lbs. According to the manufacturer, this ladder is stable, sturdy, and versatile.
What we found:
This ladder was easily manipulated to form A-frame ladders of 4 different heights, 6 different staircase ladders, 7 different height extension ladders,
and scaffolding trusses.
In total, we were able to form 18 different ladders from the Gorilla Ladder. The manufacturers claim that the ladder is 20 ladders in one
seems to consider the scaffolding trusses as 3 separate ladders - because you can put the scaffold on any of the three heights.
Safe and sturdy? Absolutely. We found the Gorilla's stability to be comparable to that of more expensive ladders.
The Gorilla is not the first of it's kind. To us, it seemed that the Gorilla Ladder is an imitation of the Little Giant ladder you may have seen on television. Be sure to check out our review of the Little Giant, as well as our comparison of the Gorilla and LIttle Giant
The ladder is fairly inexpensive for what it claims to be - 20 ladders would certainly cost more than the $100 or less for which
you can buy this.
The Bottom Line: The Gorilla Ladder is sturdy, safe feeling, and versatile. It is less expensive than other similar ladders on the market.
Though it it seems to be an imitation of the Little Giant Ladder, we think it's a very useful addition to any toolshed.
