Painting while atop a ladder can be frustrating. There usually isn’t a place to put the bucket of paint, and most paint trays aren’t designed to be used while standing at the top of a ladder. The Little Giant® Fuel Tank™ is a vertical paint tray designed to hold one gallon of paint. With its adjustable hooks, it easily attaches to most Little Giant Ladders.
How Is It Different?
Unlike most paint trays, the Fuel Tank is designed to seamlessly attach to nearly any ladder rung. This accessory has a convenient carrying handle and a standalone base to prevent tipping when placed on the ground. The Fuel Tank also has a magnetic paint roller and brush holder to keep your tools out of your paint, and your paint off of your floor. Its special plastic polymer makes for easy cleanup. Just let the paint dry and it will peel off of the Fuel Tank.
What Can I Use the Fuel Tank For?
Ideal for painting, the Fuel Tank simplifies any painter’s tasks. With its design, it is also a great option if you are cleaning windows. Fill the accessory with window cleaning solution and keep your tools close to hand to complete the job.

What’s the difference between model size and extension height?
You may have noticed that our model sizing is taller than the actual extension height of any telescoping Little Giant ladder. This is due to the requirements of US ladder standards, published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI): A14.2 for aluminum ladders and A14.5 for fiberglass ladders. These standards dictate that ladder model size should be displayed as the total rail length of each section of a ladder. All US manufacturers use the same sizing system in order to comply with ANSI. Extension ladders, articulating ladders and other multipurpose ladders often have multiple sections, so the ANSI-compliant size is the sum of the lengths of each section, not the actual maximum extended height. Please refer to the individual ladder’s instruction manual for details on maximum working length, highest standing level and maximum reach. We’ve described a few of these measurements in detail below.
What is maximum working length?
The final locks on any telescoping ladder sections will adhere to ANSI requirements, meaning there will be an appropriately sized overlap between inner and outer railing when fully extended. The maximum working length is the length of the ladder at its final locked extension length.
What is highest standing level?
Depending on the ladder and configuration, ANSI standards dictate that certain rungs (such as the ladder top cap or top step of an A-frame ladder) should not be used as a step. The highest standing level takes those standards into consideration and measures the highest ANSI-approved standing rung when the ladder is extended to maximum working length.
What is maximum reach?
Maximum reach (or “max reach”) is the combination of the ladder’s highest standing level and a common user’s reach height. The reach height addition is based on a 5'6" [1.68 m] person with a 12" [30 cm] vertical reach. The term is used in ladder merchandising throughout the climbing solutions industry to help users quickly comprehend which projects are compatible with which ladders.
