HyperLite SumoStance Extension Ladder Ordinary extension ladders are heavy; and have always been. The number-one type of ladder injuries is related to their weight. We’re talking about torn rotator cuffs, herniated disks, ankle sprains and knee ligament tears from loading, unloading, and carrying heavy traditional extension ladders. And then you have the truly catastrophic injuries that result from over-reaching, working on uneven surfaces, or even worse, a combination of the two. The Little Giant HyperLite SumoStance is the only extension ladder in the world with Little Giant’s patented SumoStance leveling outrigger system, which more than doubles the ladder’s base width and increase side-tip stability by up to 600 percent. The SumoStance’s intuitive safety features help ensure a safe, stable set-up for any job on almost any surface and is lighter than the competitors’ lightest ordinary extension ladders. To be clear: the HyperLite SumoStance, with the added safety of leveling outriggers, is still lighter than any other brand’s comparable extension ladders with zero decrease in rigidity. The HyperLite SumoStance also offers a side-to-side level bubble and front-to-back angle indicator, helping to ensure a safe ladder setup every time. It also features Little Giant’s exclusive side-mounted, dual-pulley system, which reduces the force required to lift the fly section by 45% and removes the potential trip hazard caused by traditional mid-rung rope systems. Its wide rungs let you work in more comfort without foot fatigue. Little Giant’s exclusive hi-viz green rail color has been scientifically proven to be the most visible hue of the color spectrum to the human eye. Why should a ladder need to be hi-viz? Some of the most catastrophic falls are caused by other people who walk or drive into an extension ladder. People die from these types of accidents because someone else didn’t see the ladder in time. The HyperLite is available in the IA, 300-lbs ANSI duty rating and is coming soon in IAA, 375-lbs duty rating in these sizes: 16’, 20’, 24’, and 28’. *Type IA duty rating only.
