Xstep XM-28: Our most popular telescoping ladder
The Xstep XM-28 telescoping ladder is consistently our most popular XM Series model. Why? Let’s start with the features of the ladder itself.
Lightweight: Weighing only 48.5 lbs, the XM-28 is easy to lift and move.
Compact: Step number: 18, It collapses down to 3.3ft, closed. It’s 1,6ft wide, and 0,6ft deep. Just a bout the size of a single folded sawhorse. Compare that to a standard aluminum extension ladder!
Transportable: given its dimension and weight, the XM-28, like all Xstep USA ladders, are easy to move. They fit in the trunk or backseat of any car, or take up just a small area of any pickup bed. Any car can transport one.
Easy to Use: You have to try one to believe it, but an Xstep ladder is completely intuitive in the way it expands, locks in place and collapses. You have to try one to believe it.
With a 18,4 ft, the Xstep XM-28 is our tallest XM Series ladder. That makes it a perfect choice for most homes, either as an indoor or outdoor ladder. Jobs like painting and cleaning the gutters are easier and faster to do when you don’t have to store or carry a larger extension ladder. Also, being able to move a ladder from one location to another isn’t something everyone thinks about when purchasing a ladder, but trust us, when it comes up, it’s nice to not have to borrow a friends truck to move a ladder.

So who is it for? The XM-28 a good fit for pretty much anyone other than a professional contractor (we typically recommend our XT Series to them). Do-it-yourselfers that continually improve their home will appreciate the ergonomic True Telescoping design features. It’s great for houses or lofts with tall walls.
The XM-28 is also a good ladder for people that don’t use a ladder very much and have limited storage space. You don’t need to lay it flat along the garage wall (where things get stacked on top of it). It takes up just about as much space as a folded lawn chair.
