    Default Ground Ladders

    I'm looking for some input regarding the differences between Duo-Safety and Alco aluminum ladders. I already know that there are price and weight differences and the construction is different. What are some of your thoughts on purchasing new ladders comparing each brand?

    We have both brands. Both are fine.

    Both are good ladders and are in most part pretty equal. It all depends on what you like the best.

    We have both brands as well. I don't get hung up on equipment brands, as long as they do the job and hold up to the stresses they are made for.
