This is a well made step ladder, will absolutely hold a heavier individual. The handle is more for carrying that to stabilize you. If you are unsteady on a step stool you might want to consider one with a higher bar or even side rails. But this is just as it is described. I am very happy with it.
Perfect and stable ladder for household use. I am 5 foot 2 inches and am able to reach the top cupboard. I leave it up in my pantry for easier access to shelves and grab as needed when using elsewhere in the house
I love the quality of the Little Giant ladders. They are extremely sturdy and well made. My only problem with this one is the weight. This is not an easy ladder to move around the house. It is very heavy. I purchased a second step ladder that has deeper steps and is rated to hold more weight. While it is still a bit heavy, it is easier to handle around the house.
Love this step ladder. My husband and I are slightly overweight and this ladder is great.It holds up to 350 lbs.It also has wide steps so it's safe to step up and down with ease. It's Great and I love it.
