I don't know about all of them, but the one I rented and other ones that I have seen have extendable arms for 12 foot sheets.

Everyone I've seen and used could easily do 16' sheets.

yes it will 12' is the longest recommended length that is easy to use they will do longer but if your not a drywaller it will be hard but 12' is no problem!

just fyi, I'm not sure how much to rent one for, but bought a new one off of Ebay for $200 shipped. I split the cost with a friend who is planning to do his, and it does 16 foot sheets
