This is a great ladder I use it every day. I'm a commercial Electrician running service calls out of a van and since I got this, I got rid of my 4', 6' plus my 8' ladders. It's definitely heavy. I installed wheels on it (I ordered replacement wheels for the Dark Horse Ladder from Little Giant and they fit perfectly) so I could roll it around or I just throw it on my cart. The weight is OK by me since the sturdy build and quality materials that make it so heavy are also the reason it is so stable. It never walks or shifts when I'm on it like regular ladders do. I got the Conquest so I could push the narrow end up through ceiling tiles and lean it against a wall or large sprinkler main to gain access to tough to reach boxes. The model I got also has a rubber padded V-notched bar on the narrow end to lean against pole lights safely. I also ordered the Standing Platform accessory which makes being on a ladder all day much more bearable. I liked it so much I'm getting a cheaper aluminum Little Giant Ladder for my house.
