See that Home Depot is selling a "Gorilla" brand of ladder that
looks like it does a lot of things that the "Little Giant" one does.
It's a lot cheaper, apparently.
Anyone have any thoughts as to if this is a "good" product ?
I bought the Werner brand ladders at Lowes because it's about the same
price as the Gorilla Ladders at Home Depot and the Werner ladders
aren't made in China (mine are made in USA, but that might depend upon
the individual ladder).
I have a gorilla ladder, and there two things I can say with only
seeing little giant on tv.
1. I have say my 21 footer is a little heavier considering how easy
they wipe around the one on the info-merical.
2. When you split the ladder into two, the little giant just clips
together. The gorilla gives you a seperate 'elbow' to use at the
angle point. Gorrilla's elbow piece looks real strong compared to the
giant's clip in feature.
Now remember, these are observations made from owning a gorilla
ladder, and seeing the information for little giant. Should anyone
want to buy a little-giant for better comparisons, please feel free.

I have a 6ft. gorilla step ladder and can say it is very sturdy and has a
paint rack included which the werner brand charged extra to add. I am very
pleased. A little on the heavy side but that's ok!
I have a Little Giant, and keep in mind it's made in 3 or 4 "weights" or
ratings. The heavier ones are quite sturdy. I'm light (and also not too
strong), so I bought the lightest rating, but it still seems like quality.
The reason I didn't buy the Gorilla was because the rating and length
choices were minimal, at least at my store.
I have a Gorilla and really like it, it's great for working over head above
steps which is the main reason I bought it. I also have 6 ft and 8 ft step
ladders so don't have to lug the Gorilla for everything I do. Purchased mine
when Home Depot had them on sale. RM~
I have one and it is the most stable ladder that I have ever owned.
I is great for a home owner but if I had to use it everyday I would not have
one because of the weight. I don't know what the weight of a comparable
Little Giant is.
