Great for heavy dumb bells
on September 15, 2012
I bought this to hold all my dumb bells up to 85 pounds. OK, so it didn't hold all of them, but it holds all my 35 to 85 pound dumb bells. I have another rack for the 30 pounders and smaller. It is very sturdy, and I have the heaviest weights on the top shelf for easier removal. Doesn't rock or feel at all like it will fall or anything. I love it. It went together fairly easy, but I needed help in turning it 180 degrees as I assembled it with the back facing forward. I also bought the extra third tier, which holds the 35 to 50 pounders. See the extra photo I added. When shipped, there was some parts of the box torn open and the Styrofoam content was very minimal. This is a heavy unit, and better packaging should be a priority here. I read a lot about broken boxes when received. They do include a bottle of paint for touch ups, however, despite the damaged box and poor packing, I had very little damage to the unit. I had two bottles of touch up paint, because of the 3rd shelf, but one was all dried up. No big deal there, just noting it.
But after looking and reading about many other racks, I felt this to be the best, in looks, what I needed, and what will fit in my room. The price was great too. I have bought Body Solid items before, and they have always impressed me with the style, clean looks and sturdy construction. Great company, great products.
