This product comes in two very well packed boxes, zip ties, foam cubes, completely sealed hardware bags and the instructions are very well laid out.
This was truly a breeze to assemble. Just note in one of the reviews someone pointed out 11/16ths wrench for assembly, this is incorrect. These are metric fasteners so make sure you use the correct wrench.
I am 6'4 so I thought I might not get a full range but it works just perfect. The apparatus slides VERY well with no friction at all. What I did was use isopropyl alc to clean the bar that the component slides up and down on. Then get yourself a can of silicone spray and give it a good application. I went with the olympic adapters for this and they work very well.
Amazon - got product out VERY fast.
Body Solid - GREAT COMPANY - 5 stars When I was unpacking the product I noticed that one of the bushing pieces was cracked. They are nylon or plasic so I can see how they might crack. I spoke to the phone operator at Body Solid, very friendly, was able to identify the part right away and sent out replacement piece asap / no charge. I am now a LOYAL customer now of Body Solid. I will not hesitate to order another piece of equipment from Body Solid if need be and have no doubt if I need to order replacement parts down the road it will be taken care of. One small detail to mention is that included with this product is a small vial of repair / touch-up paint. That shows above and beyond commitment from this company.
As for usability; this is a really good home machine for lats and triceps. As others have said, if you use the lower cable for biceps the machine is back heavy, because that's where all the weight is obviously, and the front of the machine will lift up. There are no apparent options for anchoring it to the floor. It may not lift up if you place sandbags, the narrow kind for your car trunk, on each side. I have not tried that yet. The motion of the slide for the weights is very fluid with no resistance. The parts all appear to be of very good quality and the pulleys and bolts seem to be durable which is a big issue with other brands as I have read in other reviews on Amazon.
If I did not already have a squat rack and pull up bar, I'd likely consider a power rack with a lat machine built in and a free standing bench. I would expect that such a set up would resolve the bicep issue.
I have used it twice now. The first thing you need to do is either somehow secure it to the floor or strap about 100 pounds to the front of it. If you don't when you use the front pulley you will be lifting the machine right off the ground and that can freak you out.
While using it I was a bit unhappy with the workout. It did not feel like I was getting the full effect like I did at the local gym. I woke up the next morning and my triceps were sore to say the least. I guess I just have to get use to the workout. Being that it uses free weight I do agree with another reviewer that it will make you look weak. I usually use 150 pound at the gym for my triceps but with this thing there was no way I could do pull downs with 150 on it. I settled for 90.
It was well worth the money in my opinion and a really great addition to my home gym.
