1. the arm bars are too far apart and are Not adjustable. This makes dips painful on your shoulders, rendering this part of the machine useless. If you have very very broad shoulders it may be okay for you. But when you pay over $100 for a machine that only does three things, you'd like for all three things to work.
2. Even if you could do the dips without pain, you'll hit your head on the chin-up bar if you're any taller than say 5'4". This is why some of the machines put the dip station on the opposite side- a better idea.
3. Again, because the arms are so far apart, it actually makes leg raises much more difficult and awkward.
4. While safe and pretty sturdy, the machine rocks slightly during pull-ups. To avoid this you have to put your back on the back brace when doing pull-ups.
In general, I think it's better to buy this sort of product from a store where you can try it out to see if it works for you.
I didn't do extensive research for an alternative. I started at Sportsauthority.com, and some towers were promising. I looked on Walmart.com too, and there was one that looked good, but I waited too long and it sold out. Then I looked on Amazon. I should have started here. The PT600 had great reviews and the price was perfect with free shipping. So I ordered it. BTW, I'm 6'-2" and 175 lbs, and this thing is fine for me.
Shipping: It arrived very fast, within a few business days. Yes, the box was a bit beat up with some holes the size of golf balls, and a few rips. But once I opened it, all the pieces were in great condition. All the nuts and bolts were in there own packaging, and no scratches on the equipment.
Assembly: The instruction book was adequate. It didn't need to be too detailed, actually. It was mostly straight forward. You will need a basic ratchet and wrench set to put this together. Trust me it helps immensely. I laid everything out and started at the beginning. One thing I would mention, which is covered in the manual....don't tighten the nuts as you go. wait towards the end. When I came across the upper assembly for the pull-up bar, I tightened before I screwed the pull up bar on, and there was no give to put it on, so I had to loosen and re-tighten. Lesson learned indeed. Also, this thing is a bit smelly, the padding, the grips, the metal. So I sprayed it down lightly with water and an antibacterial solution.Read more ›
First, the unit was shipped with 30% of the box completely shredded. The UPS delivery man said "I can't believe that this was even shipped out. You better get ready to call Amazon" and then promptly left the scene. Luckily, everything was in the box, and nothing was damaged.
The tower took me 1 hour and 35 minutes to assemble, from opening the box to throwing the cardboard in the recycle bin. There are quite a few parts, but Body Vision has done a stellar job of organizing everything (all of the nuts and bolts are labelled in a cardboard container). The only tools that I needed were a pair of vice grips (to hold the washers in place) and 2 sockets from my socket set. A couple of notes: the arm rests lean/face IN, and the rubber covers that go in front of the pull-up bar are packaged with the back braces for the arm rests. I assembled everything and then found the leftover braces, so I had to unbolt the arm rests and put the back braces on. Probably my stupidity for not noticing them, but the diagram is a bit vague on this step. So, remember this step and you can shave 10 minutes off of your install time.
As for use of the Tower: I am 6 feet tall and 210 pounds, and the tower did not tremble at all when I did pulls ups, dips, and ab movements. So, the sturdiness of the tower is rock-solid. One of the arm rests shimmies slightly, and I have tried tightening it; it is not enough to keep it from being used, or to doubt it's construction, but it is something to note.
The push up bars, at the bottom, work great and will give your chest a powerful blast.
Overall: 4 stars (more like 4.5), but I knocked one (half) star off due to the shipping brutality to the box, and the slight wobbling of one of the arm rest. Otherwise, a great product!
