Multipurpose Ladder 4-Section 4 x 3 Rungs 3.34m
Very versatile, exactly what was needed for high access, safe and stable. Using as a platform was really useful too, and in hindsight, should have bought the model with the planks to go on top.

Space-saving, but flawed
Bought this for painting, and it did the job...just.
Firstly, the out-rigger feet are great at being non-slip. The ladder feels secure when you're clambering over it. The problem is the out-riggers are often too wide to get the ladder in the space you want to use it in (e.g. a staircase). They add an extra 8" (200mm) EACH SIDE. The outriggers can't be removed quickly, and even if you do, the ends of the ladder have C-section cutouts which then make the ladder really unstable.
Second problem is the square-section rungs. They're uncomfortable for standing on for long periods of time, and there's no reason why there can't be slanted (flat) rungs which can also accommodate a platform.
The last problem is the bolts connecting the outriggers to the ladder. They're cheap and nasty bolts, and if you transport the ladder around, you'll be taking them off and on a lot.
For the price, I expected a bit better build quality than what you get. Having said that, the clips for adjusting the hinges are sturdy and easily show whether its locked or not.

Very flexible all rounder
Got this to replace an old stepladder that was on its last (wobbly) legs. In terms of construction its pretty sturdy and I'd say good value vs other options, but the real benefit is the flexibility. If you get this you really only need 1 ladder at home vs 2 or 3.
However - be aware that this is really a ladder and as such it has rungs, not steps....so as a stepladder its not that great due to the thin treads. Plus, unless you are Darcy Bussel, you will need to get some work platforms to use it as a bench !
Having said that, the sturdiness and configuration options outweigh these factors overall. A good all rounder

Bought it to help with the decorating and was most impressed. Ladder is very stable, and I was able to paint my stairwell easily and safely. Not too heavy and folds up small.
