The Mightylite is significantly lighter than comparable traditional stepladder. The MightyLite is a high visibility green folding step ladder with non-conductive fiberglass side rails.
It is extremely well constructed and rated in both Type IA 300 lbs and Type IAA 375 lbs ratings.
The Little Giant MightyLite comes in three different height configurations:

Safety Measures in Design
The most common cause of step ladder falls is from people improperly using the top step. The MightyLite was designed to help to prevent the temptation of users stepping on the top rung. A no-rung top cap prevents users from standing on the top rung. This top cap also allows to you keep some tools close at waist height.
Mightylite’s also installed a clicking mechanism “ground cue” on the bottom step the prevent people from stepping off the step above, thinking they are on the bottom step. Ankle, knee, and back injuries have resulted in users missing the bottom step while descending and dismounting the ladder.
I found the “ground que,” incredibly annoying. Once I got past the notion that it wasn’t about me, it was for safety, I quickly accepted it and moved on.
Slim Storage Profile
A no-pinch platform design opens easily from a slim 5″ storage profile and has two spacious treads and, a comfortable standing deck. It is light weight and super easy to carry.
Standing Platform Deck
The MightyLite’s standing platform is wide, comfortable, allows you to comfortable position yourself to work, and provides complete heel to toe coverage.

After using the Little Giant MightyLite ladder for 4 months I am seriously considering getting rid of my heavier step ladders. We use a folding work platforms a lot on our remodels. Between the MightyLite an the work platform our step ladders never left the tool trailer,
