Working at a significant height can be nerve-wracking, but the Little Giant® SumoStance® ladder eliminates those concerns and makes using an extension ladder easy. Designed for stability and its light weight, the SumoStance will easily become your new go-to ladder for every task.
The SumoStance utilizes wide-flared leg levelers to increase the stability of your ladder. The wide legs nearly double the ladder’s width, giving your ladder added side-tip stability. Work on any terrain, adjusting the ladder’s legs as needed, so you can confidently tackle any project.
Most extension ladders are heavy and difficult to carry, but the SumoStance uses lightweight, non-conductive fiberglass to help you reach the highest places with ease.
Little-Known Fact: having your ladder level off by just 1 inch at the bottom causes a 9-inch lean at the top of a 19-foot ladder. If safety is the goal, and it should be, the bubble levels on the SumoStance are a useful tool to ensure that your ladder is level before climbing.
The benefits of this ladder are clear. In addition to the benefits listed above, the SumoStance increases safety with its patent-pending Hi-Viz Green color. This color of fiberglass is easy to see, which helps prevent accidents associated with walking or driving into a ladder that is in-use.
Do you experience foot fatigue while standing on a ladder? If you find yourself constantly shifting your weight to rest your feet while at the top of the ladder, you are going to love the comfort that our wide ladder rungs provide.
The SumoStance complies with all OSHA, ANSI A14 strength and testing standards. Rung/step spacing complies to OSHA and Int’l standards*. The ANSI IA ladders are rated to hold 300 lbs. on the 16’, 20’, 24’, 28’, 32’, 36’ and 40’ models. Our ANSI IAA ladders are rated to hold 375 lbs. on 16’, 20’, 24’, 28’ and 32’ models.

Size refers to the ANSI definition of length. ANSI states that the size is defined by the combined length of all rail sections, with a tolerance of +/-3” on each section. Note, this does not take into account any overlap between sliding sections like those on an extension or multi-purpose ladder. This can cause a disparity in the size of the ladder versus the actual height. To determine which ladder you need, Little Giant recommends you reference maximum reach height instead of size.
The terminology for ladder duty ratings, grades, and types can sometimes be confusing. The ladder's duty rating is the maximum safe load capacity of that ladder according to ANSI standards. There are 3 types of ratings that Little Giant offers:
Type I - Made to handle everyday projects. Has a load capacity of 250 lbs.
Type IA- Designed with durability and regular use in mind. Has a load capacity of 300 lbs.
Type IAA- Built for professional performance and rugged use. Has a load capacity of 375 lbs.
Ladder specifications can be confusing due to safety regulation requirements. According to ANSI (American National Standards Institute), the ladder size is defined as the total length of each section and does not account for overlap on extension ladders. As a result, the overlapping sections reduce the total length of the ladder. When purchasing any ladder customers should pay particular attention to the maximum reach to ensure the correct product for the job.
