Common Questions & Answers

Question: Is this ladder too short for a 13 ft ceiling. I am just over 5 ft and the reviews that I am reading is making me think that it is. Thanks!

Answer: I am 5 foot 10 and I wish I would have gone with a smaller ladder for my 12 foot ceilings, I just changed a light bulb today using it and stood on the rung below the platform. So I think for someone 5 foot and change with 13 ft ceilings you should be right on target. I hope this helps, Russell
Question: product details state item weight as 22 pounds and shipping weight as 72 pounds. Can someone clear up this difference and estimate ladder weight

Answer: Our Ladder was delivered shrink wrapped with cardboard and came in perfect condition. There is no way it weighed 72 pounds. The 22 pounds for the ladder sounds correct. It is very light and Im a girly weakling with no arm muscles. I love this ladder! We have high ceilings, and now I dont have to get my husband t…

Our Ladder was delivered shrink wrapped with cardboard and came in perfect condition. There is no way it weighed 72 pounds. The 22 pounds for the ladder sounds correct. It is very light and Im a girly weakling with no arm muscles. I love this ladder! We have high ceilings, and now I dont have to get my husband to change light bulbs, I can do it all by myself. The ladder is super easy to fold and unfold and its very sturdy. I highly recommend this ladder!

Question: what it width of the ladder at the base. I have a specific purpose for this and it cant exceed 27 inches

Answer: Its about 23 inches wide. Great ladder!
Question: What size is the platform step on 8

Answer: The platform step is about 12″ long by 11″ wide.
Question: Is the black step at top a full platform you can stand on?

Answer: No you should not. It is not designed as a step. This is a very tall ladder, but the top two steps are for support not for standing on. I like it because I can rest against it giving me support. The top step is at the 6 level and is about 1 square foot to place your feet. The next is a paint platform and the top a tool rest.
Question: Is this ladder 8 feet from ground to top step or is it 8 feet ground to top hand grip?

Answer: It is not 8 feet from the floor to the top step … it is a few inches shy of 6 feet.
Question: I have 14 ceilings with many spot lights. I am 6 tall. Is this ladder big enough?

Answer: My 8ft Cosco ladder recommends the highest step for standing safely is the 6th one up from the floor. I feel really safe working at a 10 foot ceiling height. I could also stretch further and work a 6 foot ladder at the same 10 ft ceiling height but with a whole lot less confidence. Theres no margin for error…Safety …

My 8ft Cosco ladder recommends the highest step for standing safely is the 6th one up from the floor. I feel really safe working at a 10 foot ceiling height. I could also stretch further and work a 6 foot ladder at the same 10 ft ceiling height but with a whole lot less confidence. Theres no margin for error…Safety rules. So, at 14 ft ceiling height I would prefer a taller 10 foot step ladder or even a 12 foot.

Question: what is the weight limit for ladder?

Answer: I have this ladder and it say up to 300 lbs.

Buyer Reviews

Unbelievable difference!

Im a 72 year old 53″ woman who lives alone and am strong and agile enough to do my own tasks, but I have a healthy fear of falling. My small Cosco 2 step ladder is used often inside the house. But I needed a ladder for outdoor gutters (extension ladder?) which had to be stable enough for reaching into my fruit trees…I wanted only ONE ladder for both tasks. Decided to go to a big box store to buy an 8 step ladder and had it delivered. Quickly, I realized that the ladder was VERY unwieldy (duh) but more important it weighed a ton, a bad combination. Went to the internet and looked up the Cosco line of ladders and decided to gamble on their version. What a difference! First, its absolutely lighter, but importantly the handle at the mid-point makes moving it around so much easier. Its very steady and I feel safe using it.

Very happy….

This is a very stable ladder.The carry handle is great. Holds the ladder shut while carrying it.Not sure what the rollers are for. ?The slide out shelf is nice.My biggest use for this is to climb in the attic. It works very good for that. Yes I do use the two top steps for climbing in the attic. But, I have plenty to hold onto while Im on those steps. So the danger doesnt exist in this context. Just be careful, and take the possible hazard into consideration constantly.Otherwise, nobody actually uses those two top steps. This ladder has made good use of them. The very top is good to hold onto.Ive owned two other 8 foot ladders in the past. One was just barely stable. The other was very heavy. This one seems just right.

Will NOT fit upright under 8-foot ceilings when FOLDED.

This is a wonderful ladder but PAY ATTENTION: THE CLOSED LENGTH IS 100″. You might think an “8-foot ladder” would fit under your 8-foot ceilings. It will when open (its about 93″ tall; See photo). Just to be clear: eight feet is 96 inches; your “eight foot” ceilings may not be exactly 96 inches!I bought this ladder with the intention of storing it behind a door in a room with eight foot ceilings…. thats not happening. And no, it wont fit under a bed. So unless you have a tall room youre not going to store it upright. And behind a door requires a minimum of 5 ½” for width … trust me on this.As usual Amazons Product Dimensions arent accurate. My measurements above are accurate.After I figured this out I asked for a return and the seller agreed without any push-back. But this is so nice in every other way, I canceled the return and decided to store this in my garage (9-foot ceiling) and order the six-foot model of this ladder for inside the house.So what do I like? Very light ladder, very stable, 300-pound rating (225 on the 6-foot model), wide top step, the little catch-all at the top, the locking mechanism and the locking drawer (!) for small screws/nails/etc in the wide step.

THE BEST LADDER I EVER USED!

This is the best ladder I have ever purchased or used …… This is a rock solid ladder and very stable, to include the platform. I am 5 6 and I can reach 12 foot ceilings perfectly. This is a long ladder but very light and it easily folds. I love the little areas to put tools. This is the FIRST ladder that made me feel safe – seriously. I received nothing for this review.

Amazingly Lightweight, Sturdy, Easy To Use & Store 8-Foot Ladder

This is an amazingly lightweight ladder to be so very sturdy.Normally, lightweight ladders are flimsy and heavy ladders provide stability,but in this case, Cosco has designed an 8 foot ladder that is so lightweightit can easily be carried (when folded) with one hand in the middle,and yet when it is unfolded and in-use it provides a surprisingly stableand sturdy feel , like a ladder weighing far more.It also opens for use and closes for transport or storage very easily:just flip out two black plastic locking hinges, and it is ready to fold together.Unfold the ladder and flip those black plastic locking hinges back in place,and the ladder is as sturdy as anyone could expect.Most of the steps are silver aluminum, but the top useable step isblack plastic and much deeper than the steps below it. This topblack plastic step is designed to be used as a step, and is very stable.The black plastic segment above it, however, is just a shelf not designedto support a lot of weight.I cannot imagine a better-designed 22-pound lightweight 8 foot ladder,and at a little more than $120 it is priced very competitively.

I LOVE THIS LADDER

I LOVE THIS LADDER!!! I just finished hanging 42 inch wide wallpaper on a wall 12.5 high!!! This ladder made it so easy!!! VERY VERY STABLE!!! Standing on a platform ladder like this increases your reach without decreasing your safety. Also both trays are so convenient. Nothing just falls off!!! Its very light weight and sturdy at the same time and very easy to move while working. With paperhanging theres a lot of motion bending and such thru the installation of each piece, this ladder never budged and im not so light weight these days. SUPER BONUS!!! It fit INSIDE by Kia Soul!!! amazing with 2 inches to spare!!! i thought i was going to put it up on the roof rack but thought id give it a try just to see!!! : ) I love Love LOVE this ladder~!!!! i have the 6 foot as well and can reach 10 foot ceilings with it!!! Great Price!!! Great equipment!!!

A beautifully thought out design

Since Im getting up in years I decided it was time to replace my rickety old wooden ladder and what a sweet piece of work this new one is-one of the best purchases ever.It is solid and sturdy but not overly heavy and has some great features.On the top rung is a sturdy wide platform to stand on instead of a narrow rung and it also serves to lock the legs in place.Above that is a platform to set a can of paint on and it contains a shallow pull-out drawer for assorted small tools,etc-really neat.Above that is a handle to hold on to.It even has a paper towel holder.I also love the carrying handle on the side that locks the legs together so you can carry it like a briefcase.Somebody really put some thought into this.
