Little Giant SumoStance Ladder Preview

Little Giant Ladder Systems just announced a new SumoStance extension ladder, a wide-stance extension ladder which they showed off at the National Safety Congress and Expo in San Diego, California last week. The SumoStance triples the base width of ordinary extension ladders and increases side-tip stability by over 500%, resulting in a new category of extension ladders that work on nearly any uneven surface.

Little Giant Ladder Systems just announced a new SumoStance extension ladder, a wide-stance extension ladder which they showed off at the National Safety Congress and Expo in San Diego, California last week. The Little Giant SumoStance ladder triples the base width of ordinary extension ladders and increases side-tip stability by over 500%, resulting in a new category of extension ladders that work on nearly any uneven surface. If you’re concerned about ladder safety, this is a good model to look at.


Little Giant SumoStance Ladder Features

Little Giant designed the features of the new SumoStance ladder to compensate for the difficult, unlevel terrain around nearly every worksite. All construction professionals deal with sloping sidewalks, uneven ground, ungraded new construction sites and other hazards on a daily basis. Uneven surfaces create dangerous situations that often result in accidents and lost time, and ultimately, increased insurance costs.


Little Giant attempts to circumvent and overcome some of the above problems with the following patent-pending SumoStance innovations:

  • Adjustable outriggers
    SumoStance outriggers extend the base width by more than 18 inches on each side, resulting in a base that is three times wider than ordinary extension ladders.
  • Level and tilt indicators
    A side-to-side level and front-to-back angle indicator helps to ensure a safe ladder setup every time.

Quick Specs

  • Ladder Type: Type IA (300 lbs) Wide Stance Extension
  • Extension Max Height: 12 ft 4 in (30.48 cm)
  • Extension Min Height: 9 ft 5 in (22.86 cm)
  • Storage Height: 9 ft 5 in (22.86 cm)
  • Storage Width Depth: 6.25 in (15.88 cm)
  • Storage Width at Base: 5 ft 0 in (12.7 cm)
  • Rung Size: 1.25 in (3.18 cm)

Little Giant SumoStance ladder innovations are designed to produce greater speed, less fatigue and fewer injuries for working professionals. The materials and manufacturing processes used are geared towards generating significant weight reductions, improving safety and speed, while minimizing back injuries and lost time.

“The Little Giant SumoStance ladder is engineered not only to prevent accidents, but also to save lives. The SumoStance’s intuitive safety features help ensure a safe, stable set-up for any job on almost any surface. Little Giant’s commitment to innovation, demonstrated in the new SumoStance, is setting new safety standards for the entire ladder category.”

– Ryan Moss, CEO Little Giant

The Little Giant SumoStance ladder will be available at hardware stores and industrial supply houses nationwide in January 2011.
