Little Giant

Little Giant has 13, 17 and 22 foot models. They are made from aircraft-grade aluminum and is rated to hold up to 250 lbs.

The best feature of this extension ladder is that you can set it up in multiple configurations:

  • A-frame
  • Staircase
  • Extension
  • 90-degree
  • Scaffolding

This versatility allows you to use this ladder for much more than gutter cleaning. For most people, the 22-foot model is the best option.

There is also a lifetime warranty so you know the Little Giant will be with you for a long time and be well worth the initial investment.

DeWalt is a recognizable and reliable brand in tools. Their ladders are equally great.

We recommend the DeWalt DXL3020 Fiberglass Extension Ladder. It’s available in many sizes, starting at 16 feet and increasing by 4 feet until their 40 foot model. You likely won’t need one that tall so I would stick with the 16 or 20-foot versions.

It has a 300 pound capacity, non-marring top (so it won’t scratch), and a quick latch that ensures the ladder is secure when extending it to taller heights.

Xtend & Climb

It’s made from aerospace engineered aluminium alloy and is rated for safe use by ANSI & OSHA.
