Polder 3-step featherweight ladder
on November 26, 2003
This is without a doubt the lightest 3-step folding ladder on the market. The Cosco 3-step that was sold at Costco for $20 is almost as light, but Costco discontinued the $20 Cosco ladder, perhaps only temporarily due to the Christmas inventory change. Since I couldn't find the 3-step Cosco featherweight anywhere else and I needed to buy a very light 3-step I ended up paying $50 for the Polder on Amazon. I have no regrets about the purchase. It's a very good ladder. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that the locking mechanisms on both sides have to be pushed down before using the ladder. Otherwise the ladder could conceivably fold up during use. Cosco's feathelight 3-step doesn't have this problem with engaging any locking mechanism. It seems the Cosco is a tad, but just a tad, heavier than the Polder.
