One of the clips that shipped with the product broke after two uses, but Powerline sent me replacements and so far they have been good.
Weight on this machine feels heavier than those at commercial gyms. I'm not sure why this is because the cable flows smoothly during any exercise. This has been a welcome addition to my home gym, which until now was only limited to barbells and dumbbells. The machine comes with a lat pulldown bar and a short straight bar that is good for tricep pulldowns and rows. I'd also suggest buying a Double D handle (Cap sells one on Amazon for $15). This helps target muscles in the middle of the back and is a good supplement to a normal back routine. The handle also come in handy for T-bar rows with the barbell.
I'm about 5'8'' and the leg brace works well for me. I wish there was maybe one more adjustment level because there are only two, but that's a minor gripe.
The boxes (2) arrived when expected. One box was damaged but the contents was unharmed. One minor part was missing but it was not needed to complete the construction or to use the product. All the parts were in good condition.
The first "con" is that the assembly instructions were simply an "exploded" chart and a parts list. The parts list was well designed because it listed the parts and the dimensions of bolts so that I could tell which ones were which. I'm really bad at putting things together but I figured this out. In the future it would be nice if they broke the chart in to three sections: 1 - the basic assembly; 2 - attaching the weight bar assembly; 3 - finishing up with the remaining assembly. My only problem was that a few steps needed to be performed before others and so I needed to take some parts off and re-do the assembly. Not a big deal.
Once assembled I added some adapter collars that I had also ordered and using some clips that I already had I was able to hook up the cable-attached handle, add some plates, and start exercising.
The motion is smooth and I detected no vibrations. I sprayed the glide post (where the weights slide up/down) with WD40 and the action was even smoother and relatively quiet. I've been using this for a while and there are no issues.
One other "con" is that when seated I can't extend my arms all the way up to stretch my back without bottoming-out the weight. I can get most of stretch so this doesn't affect the number of stars.
The last "con" is that the d-rings that come with the cables are rather small. The problem is attaching the cables to the handles and the d-rings do not have enough room to rings correctly. I had a couple larger d-rings and they worked much better.
The machine comes with a long bar and a shorter bar so you really don't need to buy any accessories in order to use this effectively. The exception is that the posts are sized for 1-inch plates so if you have 2-inch plates they will either be loose or you will need to buy/use adapters.
"Pros" 1 - This is much cheaper than other machines of this type. 2 - It is not difficult to put together. 3 - It doesn't take up much room. 4 - You can perform a lot of different exercises.
"Cons" 2 - The assembly instruction aren't very good but can still be followed to get the machine put together. 2 - The d-rings are too small. 3 - The machine may not be high enough for someone with really long arms. They can still use it but stretching on lat pull downs might be difficult.
All in all this is worth the price and if it is like another machine by the same company then it will probably last a long time.
To do triceps, stand in front of it, grab the curved bar with knuckles on top, and torque it down.
But, I put a couple of 60lb dumbells on the front legs. Then I hook up row cable setup, pull out the seat (easy to do), stand, and pull the weights up; for deltoid workouts with the straight bar (stand, pull bar to mid-section, then pull bar toward chin, elbows out and work the delts). You can also do curls, and shoulders this way. I realize this isn't recommended by the manufacturer, but just use common sense and stand on the front legs or put 120 lbs on it.
And I'm sure there are plenty more muscles you can work out with this, but I haven't yet explored them all. It's definitely my favorite at this point. It's also sturdy. I have not had any problems with it. It's a simple device. In engineering, simple is good because there are fewer things that can break.
