This review is from: Hailo 8140-507 L40 150 kg Capacity Aluminium Stepladder (5 Steps) (Tools & Hardware)
Got this stepladder to replace my old, really clunky heavy one. I'm a woman of fifty who, I admit, may have put on a few pounds lately, and always have been a clumsy cow anyway. It was getting way too hard to carry around and I kept bashing into walls and stuff. Plus it didn't have a shelf at the top which made it a complete pain in the backside painting, holding the brush in one hand, the tin in the other and wobbling around trying not to fall off the damned thing.
This one is strong and stable enough but is really light so I can carry it with one hand, even up and down the stairs, which results in a lot less damage to my house. Plus it does have a shelf at the top, so I can rest the tin of paint there, thus enabling me to hold onto the ladder while wielding my brush. Which also results in a lot less damage - to me and the house.
To say I love this stepladder would just sound very sad, but it is sooooo much easier to use! :)
