USE: As for the use of the press, one user indicated that you cannot load and unload the bottom rack if the carriage is in any position other than the lowest resting level. I was concerned about that as I use 100 pound plates on my press. Well, I'll tell you 'YES' you can load and unload the bottom rack from the middle locked position even with 100 pound plates. It does require you hold the plate at a slight angle but it is not a challenge nor is it a problem. The roll unit for the carriage is smooth and I find the foot plate position to bet comfortable and sized properly. I trained this morning using 750 pounds of plates and had a great leg session.
OVERALL: I gave this unit 5 stars because of:
The cost, about $800 is half what similar units run.
The capacity, 1000 pounds is a good work range for even serious body builders like me with 30+ years of training under the belt.
The size, the footprint on this unit is a lot smaller than other models and it fits very well in my home gym of 14X22 feet.
Also, some other reviewers have commented that you can't put weights on the lower horns when the sled is in any position other than all the way on the safety stops. I originally thought this at first, but it is not true. You do, though, have to put the weights on at an angle as you slide them between the horn and the frame before they go on. An inconvenience, maybe, but not a deal breaker by a long shot. I'm sure it was a design consideration to keep the footprint as small as it is.
The assembly manual is only a couple of pages and three assembly steps. While the drawings are all correct (if not hard to figure out), the text is a mess. I'm really surprised that Powertec would allow this absurdity to continue. A simple reprint, or even updated online instructions would go a long way. Don't be concerned, though, it is very easy to assemble but you will no doubt need two people for a couple of steps.
One last little thing: Powertec was nice enough to include a small bottle of touch-up paint in case your finish gets marred in some way. Sadly, not only was this little bottle nearly impossible to get the seal off of, but once I did I realized that what paint might have been in this little bottle was dried up and useless.
