  2. Value for money
    Very good power rack for such price. Very easy to assemble (I don't now why some say that the diagram was inaccurate), I have it for a year now.

    Pros:
    - (Important) Well built and sturdy
    - (Important) Comes with band hooks, safety pins, dip handles, multi-angle pull up bar
    - (Important in my opinion) You can buy webbing safety catchers that are more versatile for bench press (you can find the exact height which might be difficult with the metal safety pins)
    - (Minor) Now comes with numbered holes (mine didn't have these and I painted them myself)
    - (Good) Now you can buy plate sleeve attachment to store plates

    Cons:
    - (Minor if used inside) I think the paint coating could be better. Some spots have chipped but I don't care since I use it inside so no fear of rust
    - (Minor but maybe important for some) Since the horizontal bottom bars of the rack touch the floor, you can't do sumo deadlift inside the rack. Minor, but good to know if you're tight in space
    - (Somewhat important) Bar holders and the optional upgrade j-hooks have no type of protection. That is they are bare metal. This could easily scratch your bar and chip some paint. Bear this in mind in case you have a colored bar
    - (Minor) No option to add a vertical barbell storage insert

  4. Good value for money, well designed and versitile.
    Bought this excellent cage a few months back as i wanted to train at home. After perusing the market for a few weeks i finally took the plunge and bought it...i have absolutely no regrets!. As someone who routinely works up to 200kg on several exercises i was looking for something which would make me feel safe working by myself.
    The hole spacing is excellent for doing rack work which features in westside style training and it fits the specifications westside requires. I wrote in waterproof pen all the hole numbers to remind myself of the right safety heights.
    Its well made, very well painted, covered externally and the pull up station is great. I weigh 104kg and have been adding 30kg on a belt for pullups...the paperwork that comes with it details the maximum capacity which i understand to be 140kg for pullups. It holds up to this just fine, if i am wrong about the capacity then i will edit the review.
    The dipping bars are good however i have never used a parallel configuration before as had to be careful not to go too low. Depending on your shoulder width you will have to decide whats best for you.
    It took me just over an hour to assemble by myself and as another reviewer said the bolt sizes are the same throughout the whole design which saved a bother on laying out little piles.
    I cant find anything better for the money in all honesty, its solid, i put 240kg on the pins and they didn't move a millimeter. One word of caution....if you move the bar on the pins sideways to reposition it, the torque motion will rotate one of the pins which has metal facing towards the direction of rotation, if you don't keep an eye on this it will raise the risk. I may have made a mistake here?, it can be remedied by inserting the relevant pin into the rack from the other side. I will change this review accordingly if i am wrong.
    Apart from these small issues everything else is simply great.
    I put some duck tape over the main hooks i use for bench to silence the sound of the bar coming back onto the hooks, this makes the operation of the cage quite silent if you should happen to have neighbors next door and your a big chap!.
    The band attachments are perfect in hole position, i have used them for all the main band work such as squats, deadlift, bench and the is no worries at all. All is good on that front.
    I give this cage 9/10 stars, i hold one star back for the dipping bar capacity, i am looking to upgrade to a dipping attachment which can hold 200kg, to provide more safety.
    On value for money i give 10/10 stars, its a great investment in my opinion. As a former strongman competitor i cant fault it for general use. Almost perfect.

    Regards

  5. Awesome value for money.
    Ordered this Thursday just after 12pm got it Friday just after 10am. Great service. Safe to say this is a solid bit of kit with some great features, like the dipping handles and the pull up bar.
    Very pleased with it.

  6. great bit of kit
    had this set up for about 6 weeks now and I have to say its a really good power cage and great value for money. very pleased with the adjustability for the pins making it extremely easy to get the bar at exactly the right height. the dip bars are solid and I really like the different angles on the pull up bar.
    Probably the best point of this rack is the band attachments this is the only rack I’ve found in this price range that has them ! all the other racks I found with band attachments where £800+. would highly recommend buying this and some bands

  7. Solid and not actually that basic!
    Finally took the plunge and bought a power rack, this was easily the best for the money that we found. Ample weight capacity, very solid, and to top it off it has a chinning bar with several angle variants, dip bars and even band hooks. Plus it only has one size of bolt for assembly, which is a godsend.

  8. Great cage for the price
    We bought two of these cages for our gym. Really solid construction, we have had over 250 kilos on the pins no bother. The strength shop log fits on the j hooks and is brilliant for pressing out the rack.
