You can't fully extend a little giant as an A frame on a baker. With that being said, I am 6' 4" and did this combo on a 22' job we were spraying dryfall and I was close enough with a short gun extension. It is solid enough on the baker. Try it out and see if you can get the needed height.

Can you cut in 8 foot ceilings without a ladder?

buy a halve section to mate with ur baker. It's a good thing to have. If you had to though you could use a 4ft or 6ft a frame on top of the Bakker. You'd have to make a lot of moves but you would get at it.

Why not just work off an extension ladder? Seems a lot safer.

Tape your mud knife to a 16' pole and pull. You can't see it that well from the ground anyway. Where's Steve? He'll back me up on this

Trick question? Safety 1st! another section is a heck of alot cheaper than a doctor bill.Little giant will end up slewing you!

Another baker can be useful anyway, pony up for it and be safe and efficient. We have stacked them 3 high without the outriggers and felt good about it.

How the heck can you tape a seam properly off of a ladder?
You need a 3 section high baker rig. Use a Hawk and trowel. I would also use the 45 min mud, but I am pretty quick.

Reading this whole thread has me saying "really?" I don't know about all you guys, but I don't like to work unsafely, or take a risk of a potentially disastrous fall, or damaging the clients home or property. Plus, it would scream hack to be climbing up on some makeshift platform. If you don't have the proper equipment to do a job, then for God's sake, put the cost in the bid, and either buy or rent the right equipment. Scaffold rental is CHEAP, home health care nursing or physical therapy specialists are not.

It was Michelangelo who painted the Sistine Chapel. It was one of the most amazing places I've ever been to.

Sorry, my bad. I thought a baker was 5' high. Also, the cat walk doesn't have to be at the top!

I had to do a cut in job today on an open concept interior and our ladder was coming up a bit short . I had to do about 30 feet of cutting using our Gooseneck brush screwed into our short 2ft extension . It was difficult doing it with both left and right hands...but it turned out quite well . What made it really hard was mostly the fact that it was about a 22.5 degree angle and not in pristine condition after 15 years . I had to do a section off of the landing/hall upstairs because the railing was poorly fastened and I would not trust it to take the weight of me leaning on a ladder resting against it . I then used a 2 stepper and I had to reach out and up and cut both the ceiling and the wall at 1 ft per move rate...and in all of this I had my buddy hold the bottom of the ladders so that they would not kick out on me .

LOL...we should have just went and got a 24 ft extension and it would have been easier and definitely much safer ! It's no fun when you have no ladder to hold onto and the paint can is being held against the wall by your knees !
