Top customer reviews
-Decent price (beware you get exactly what you're paying for here)
-Small footprint once assembled
-Made in China (this became very obvious)
-missing hardware (supposed to be 8 carriage bolts of a certain length but I received 7 and 1 fully threaded carriage bolt that was shorter than the others.
-Cheap design ( pull up bar position, grips spin making it hard to grasp, right and left sides are not even, both elbow pads move (left to right) a few millimeters even after tightened completely.
-VKR handlebar design is weird. Tilts forward, but unsure of the purpose for this.
-welds are horrible. Some welds partially blocked washers and nuts from tightening freely and flat. Also jagged edges on welds sliced my finger open. Be careful. when assembling.
-horrible instructions. Poor labels. Extremely wordy and hard to follow. Very busy pictures.
Conclusion: I do not like buying cheap stuff. I'd rather save and put my money toward a better quality product. I don't feel this product is very well made and is typical of the quality you find in a Walmart or similar (low budget) store. I feel this is a lesson learned with following the "top seller" label on Amazon. I will give this detail much less weight, when looking for a top rated product on Amazon in the future.
My photos below show
1) unevenness between right and left
2) horrible weld interfering with washer and bolt
3) short carriage bolt supplied does not thread through the nut.
The pads kind of smell, but I have it in my garage, so the smell is dissipating. I waited for about three months to put it together after it arrived, and I wish I had put it together and started using it sooner. It's a pretty good tower. I'd buy it again.
Also, the plastic tube end protectors near the pull up bar have sharp edges that stick out. I took some electrical tape and wrapped these up once I got the unit fully assembled and in place. Nobody has to worry about scuffing up there hands. The unit is still very well manufactured and a delight to use. I weigh around 180 lbs and the Power Tower barely moves when I do pull ups or leg lifts.
I recommend it highly and it is kid friendly!
Construction: First off, this box weighed a ton! Carrying it into the house by myself in itself was a workout! However, that was to be expected for a product such as this. I'm sure the UPS man hates me, though! I found putting it together somewhat stressful, but I won't take that away from it's amount of stars because it was my fault -I hate reading directions. After I surrendered the fact it would be impossible for me without directions it took me maybe an hour, give or take 15 minutes, to put together and I needed my husbands help to hold some parts while I secured them. I needed a few different kind of tools... I wish I could say what they were, unfortunately, I don't know what tool is what by name. Sorry! Once I assembled it and decided to test (and fail) at trying a couple of pull ups, I moved it out of the way as much as possible but this thing is pretty big and takes up a lot of space! I needed my husbands help to move it, too! It's pretty clunky.
The workout: I've had this for a few months now and have noticed a great increase in strength. The tower is very stable and I don't ever feel as though it will ever tip over. A note to my other short friends out there: I'm a short person...like 5'1... so I need a stool to reach the handles and not have to jump down what feels like 10 feet when I'm done with a chin up or pull up!
Also, here is a site where I found some work outs for something similar to this. I had found a very good youtube video for this model but can no longer find it :-( hope this helps, though! http://abmachinesguide.com/power-tower-exercises-and-workout-routine/
However, when I do dips, the dip bars flex outward! A couple of metal pegs would have prevented this. I've tightened the heck out of the screws; any more and I'm afraid they would break.
