Anyone use sectional ladders?

like the ones window cleaners use.  I read that you should not stack em more than 21'.

I think that for smaller ranch style homes they would be easier to move around than the 24' extension that I use now.

I am considering them for next year. Just dont know if I will like the bending that they have when up high. I just hate extension ladders and would love to find an alternative.

Thanks.

It's bad enough being on a solid 21' ladder when cleaning roofs with the wind is blowing.  I would not feel safe on on a sectional ladder.

Thanks Marcus and Tom. Your input is appreciated. Maybe I will stay with extensions. I just like the idea of the lightness of the sectionals.

 Go buy a 16 ft extension. I carry a 16 and a 24 ft with me. 16's are great for ranch homes.

I've never used sectional but I love my multiladders. i use the werner brand. they are sturdy and its great to be able to a-frame or straight-frame whenever I want. I also use an 32" extension when necessary.

extension ladders are the way to go. sectionals are unsafe and a pain to use.

I don't trust them.  I have a 16 ft and a 24 ft.  The 16 ft gets the lions share of the work.

I have a 32ft fiberglass Werner, it is a beast. I'm looking to get a 16 or a 20 for ranches.

I have a 24 I use a lot and a 28 that used to get used a lot until I got the 24 and I have a 32 which gets some use and a 40 that still looks new after 10 years and used twice. I know if I sell the 40 I will need it the next day so I just keep that bohemouth around just in case.

The most common ladder for us are the aluminum 16 & 24. Werner and Louisville. The 12 works for most 1 stories and 24 for the 2 stories. Also have a 28, 32 and 40. Did use the 28 last week for a two story and will probably dedicate the 28 for roof cleaning. The 32 and 40 just sit around 99% of the time and collect dust. But they are locked up, dang crackheads are everywhere!

Little Giant 17' is great for ranchers and comes in handy for many other cleaning projects.

I wouldn't use a sectional ladder, but I am also a wide load.

Got to watch the power lines with the aluminums. That's why I bought the fiberglass, but they are much heavier.
