Little Giant Type 1A Revolution XE

The lightest. The toughest. The sexiest. The bleeding-edgiest ladder technology from Little Giant Ladders for 2009.

For six harrowing days, I did the unthinkable: I left my 1991 Little Giant at the shop to see exactly the impact of not having the ladder around would have on my day-to-day grind and see how well I can do without it. Let me tell you — I was not happy about it. When products that save you time are pulled out from under you, its at that point you realize how easy you had it.

LiteWave™ Technology
For starters, the RevolutionXE is lighter–20% lighter than any competing multi-use ladder on the market due to patented LiteWave™ technology (the same technology used by the U.S. military in aircraft production) and without sacrificing any strength. LiteWave™ technology allows for the convenience of a 250 lb. rated ladder, yet still provides the strength of a 300 lb. rated ladder.

Redesigned MAG4™ Hinge
Adding even more stability to the world's safest ladder wasn't easy. But the revolutionary MAG4™ hinge system does just that. The MAG4™ hinge locks into place with 4 pins instead of 2 for increased stability and overall safety. Plus, the patented hinge system features magnetic palm buttons for holding tools or materials.

Rock Locks™
The Revolution XE features a redesigned Rock Lock™ system that makes adjusting your ladder quick and easy. Simply push the lock to release, adjust the ladder, then tap to lock. It's simple, fast and safe.

Since the Little Giant pulls apart to form two scaffold trestles, you just add the Little Giant work plank (sold separately) to form a convenient scaffolding system.

Staircase Ladder
Because it's adjustable in one-foot increments, the Little Giant allows one side of the ladder to be extended allowing safe use on uneven surfaces like staircases, curbs or docks.

Extension Ladder
For large projects the Little Giant easily converts to a stable extension ladder allowing you to reach rooftops, tree limbs and more with ease.

What's the Same?

The RevolutionXE is designed to be the safest ladder on the planet. Since it's adjustable, the RevolutionXE can be used safely on stairs, ramps, curbs, docks or other uneven surfaces.

The RevolutionXE is made using LiteWave™ aluminum technology, the very same material used in aerospace construction. So it's ultra-strong while remaining light and portable.

Independent tests prove the RevolutionXE will replace 60-70% of all portable ladders currently being manufactured.

When you buy a RevolutionXE from Little Giant, you're not just getting one ladder. You're getting 24 different ladders combined to make the world's most versatile ladder system.
