An intense job calls for an intense tool. The Little Giant® Revolution™ ladder helps you complete those heavy-duty tasks. From roofing, to tinning, to general maintenance, the Revolution is the ladder to help you get stuff done.
1. PALM BUTTONS
Move from storage to A-frame to extension ladder configurations by pushing in the ladder's palm buttons.
2. PATENTED METAL ROCK LOCK
Metal Rock Lock adjusters on the ladder's rails allow for quick and easy height and position adjustment.
3. TIP & GLIDE WHEELS
The Revolution's integrated Tip & Glide wheels help you move the ladder easily from place to place.
The Revolution can be converted into trestle-and-plank scaffolding by removing the outer section of the ladder and connecting it with trestle brackets. Attach a Plank between the two trestles to cover a larger workspace, so you can work faster. (Trestle brackets and Plank sold separately)
ACCESSORIES (Not all compatible accessories included)
1. CARGO HOLD
When working on a ladder, you need a space where you can comfortably put your equipment. Made of ballistic nylon and steel, the Cargo Hold is a sturdy tool pouch that attaches to your ladder to keep tools at hand.
2. WORK PLATFORM
Decrease foot fatigue while working on your ladder. The Work Platform is a ladder accessory that doubles as a comfortable standing platform and tool tray. This accessory is rated to hold up to 375 lbs. (NEVER EXCEED DUTY RATING OF THE LADDER)
If you need to work around a window, rain gutter or bush, the WingSpan wall standoff attaches to the ladder, allowing you to work around the obstacle, giving you a sturdy surface to work on.

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.
