LITE Industrial Aluminum Work Deck - 48in.L x 18in.W, 1,000-Lb. Capacity, Model# LP-2021
Works Well with one or 2 people
I use this product to assist my employees in loading trucks. They use the extra height to get high enough to put on that top row of product in the truck.
I have tried ladders and step stools but this is much better, it is solid, has a large platform, easily allows side to side movement without moving the unit and is strong enough to hold up even if i need two people on the unit to safely handle the cargo.
These probably go through more abuse in my facility than they would normally encounter in construction so it should work very well in that application as well.

Great but not perfect
Ok so it will most likely hold 1000lbs. However I am heavy, 300+lbs. I don't feel overly secure on this platform. It could use a couple more cross braces on the platform and the joints give some movement front to back. The pivoting joints do lock solidly in place but like I mentioned they can sway front to back. The metal here could be beefed up. This is far better than any others I tried and it's rated capacity is greater than me so I feel confident it wont collapse or bend but I would feel better if it were a little more sturdy. If your a 200lb person your going to feel very confident on this and it is perfect for you. The ease of use is amazing. The joints works great. When you need to close it you simply pull up on the lever, it locks open, then pull the lever on the other leg on the same side and it also locks open. Then simply fold down the side and repeat at the other end. Way simple and it actually works like it's supposed to. It's nice to see a product that lives up to it's expectations. I think for less than a 5lb weight gain they could really have made this thing a lot more sturdy. If not for that I would have given this a 5 star rating. If your a 200lbs person your going to love this thing and it is worth every penny.

Ultimate compact platform
I've seen others in this category and this one is by far the best one I've seen.It is extremely stable,safe and lightweight.You have 4ft of travel compared to none on a stepladder.Perfect for cutting in a wall,ceiling painting or repair,step-up to a van or truck or bench for material.The 1000lb capacity means when you(and a co-worker) are on it,it's rock solid.It folds up in seconds & has a handle for carrying.It also takes up very little real estate in your garage.Any job you would use a stepladder for,this platform in my opinion is almost always the way to go.The hinges are super strong & lock into place with a solid click so you know it's ready for use.The aluminum construction means it won't ever rust or corrode.If you're shopping for a compact platform,spend the little extra $ & get this one!I strongly recommend...6 stars

Great for working in stairwells and as a light, movable table. The height is good and legs lock firmly in place. Very sturdy. I only wish I had had it 8 years ago when I started to build my house. It Paid for it's self in the first two stairwells.
