I know that for safety ya should get the weight ratings for the total weight ya taking up… but i remember reading in the past that even the extension ladder say 225lbs rating it can take 675lbs max load, based 1:3 ratio. They do this to ensure that ladder dont fail on you at all.
The reason i ask is that i am 265 and i rather not buy 300lbs 1A extension. I rather get 225lbs because its much lighter.
Is there any truth to what i mentioned?
Or i could always run my fatass off and drop the weight, so there’s that…
