The Little Giant Defender™ was specifically engineered for firefighters who need speed and strength in a rapid-response portable ladder system. The Defender is designed to fit existing storage spaces in most fire engines and is lighter than any comparable industrial-rated ladder. The Defender also includes several innovative new features, such as the Quad-Lock™ hinge and the Rock Locks® rung fasteners for quick, easy adjustment with heavy firefighter gloves. The Defender can be used in dozens of unique configurations as an A-frame, extension, staircase and 90-degree ladder, and as a trestle-and-plank scaffolding system. The Defender’s wide-flared legs and study aluminum construction provide unmatched safety and stability.

The Defender also features Little Giant’s new, patented dual Ratchet Levelers™. Ratchet Levelers adjust hands-free in seconds. These integrated levelers are extremely quick and easy to operate.  Simply extend the levelers with your foot until the ladder reaches a level, stable setup. The levelers offer nearly 8.5 inches of leveling adjustment, and allow you to adapt your ladder to nearly any uneven surface in only seconds. The Defender has high-viz reflective labels and heat-sensor labels that indicate when it has been exposed to too much heat and should be taken out of service. The Defender also features heavy duty casters to make transport faster and easier.

The Little Giant Defender is rated to hold 300 pounds on both sides and can be used as a true two-person stepladder.
