But for real this was an enjoyable experience because it was the first addition to my man cave. I took my time building it and had a good time. It is well made as everyone mentions and they did not cut corners. I'm very happy with this purchase.
There are a few bullet points I would recommend taking note of before starting the build:
You may think all the large bolts are the same size, they're not, some of them are like 1/8 shorter than the other ones. Keep that in mind.
Before you build everything make sure you position this in the right place. Just put together the base and account for the rear foot that protrudes from the back. You need space for the pulley AND the weights you will put on it. For me it was like an additional 5" to accommodate 45lb plates. The pulley system slides the weight assembly up and down the pole, not "out". I also give 32 inches clearance on each side of the cage. This gave me plenty of room for the bar when doing squats, and I don't "worry" whether there's enough room either.
All you need is two wrenches to build the entire thing. No screwdrivers, mallets, drills, allen wrenches, etc. One wrench is to hold the bolt still while the other wrench is to tighten the nut. They should be 17mm. I actually used a ratchet for one and a crescent wrench for the other.
I would not tighten anything down until the very end. There's no need to and there are a couple places to get caught up.
The buffer washers are black plastic and are in the bag with the pulleys.
I ended up with one additional bolt, nut, and like 4 washers. At least I hope they are additional :)
Yes, it is easy to build. That is all. Enjoy.
Not quite commercial grade but the build is outstanding. The pulleys and sliding weight holder are smooth. My workouts have improved greatly. I feel much safer benching and being able to transition from bench, to shoulder press, to standing exercises is so much better than my old bench offered.
I was using the Gold's Gym XRS 20 bench and rack and this Valor is a much better and safer solution. I set bench press on the rear of the cage and set spotters on the inside front. They do not limit range of motion and I've used the spotters several times trying to eeke out one more rep.
I still use the XRS 20 bench and the fit inside is tight but manageable on incline bench press. Regular bench press is perfect.
I have to applaud the reviews existing on this rack. They helped me to get all of the accessories I needed to make this rack useful from the moment I finished putting it together. A careful read of other reviews also allowed me to prevent problems before they might occur.
Valor must be reading these reviews, because as of September 2013 when I received this model, the instructions started with several pages of diagrams, but also included 4-5 pages of step by step suggestions to make the installation easier. The printed instructions helped make this a pretty simple experience. Just pay attention to where the various holes should face on the main beams and almost anyone can out this thing together. I am not exactly gifted in the common sense department, and I was able to put this together with my wife over about an hour and a half. It might help you to pull everything out, slap a small piece of tape on each piece, and label it. My wife did this and it made the job easier.
In addition to the above, here are some hints gathered from other reviews here and put to use by me on how to make installation and use a pleasant experience:
1. This rack has six plate holders, two on the lat pulldown and four total along the sides. However, they are STANDARD size plates holders. I would recommend getting 6 Body-Solid 8 Inch Olympic Adapter Sleeve w Hex Nut Locks. These are inserted over the plate holders and convert them to Olympic plate holders. I am impressed with the quality.
2. There are small balls with tiny metal cups on either side on the cables just before you attach bar attachments like tricep ropes or a lat pulldown bar. These exist both on the top cable and the bottom cable. Take some duct tape or electric tape and tape the cups to the balls on both sides so they don't accidentally strip your cable. Do this BEFORE attempting to use the cables.
3. You might want to purchase some kind of teflon spray or graphite to coat the pulley system with. Some reviews complained about the lack of smooth operation on the cables, but I did not seem to have this problem, even before I sprayed some lubricant on the pulleys and cables.
4. Use duct tape on the lat pulldown foam pad. It apparently flakes off. I purchased some black duct tape and wrapped it immediately upon installation.
5. Depending on your needs, you will probably want to purchase some more attachments for the lat pulldown and row. A really good one on Amazon is the Champion Cable Attachment Package Pack. You get a better quality straight bar, a triceps rope, and a v-bar. If you go heavier on the lat pulldown, I'd pick out a new lat pulldown bar too.
6. You will need to purchase weights and a barbell to go with this power rack. I'd suggest shopping locally, because the cost of shipping a 300 lb Olympic Weight set usually drives the price up online.
7. If you are planning on deadlifting off the floor, make sure you make yourself a solid platform to cushion the weight as it hits the ground. I used some 7/8 inch thick matting and I also hope to make a platform out of several pieces of 4 x 8 plywood in the near future.
8. Purchase shoes with flat soles or lift barefoot. You DO NOT want to try to squat or deadlift heavy with cushioned soles, the type found in running shoes and cross trainers. If you don't want to buy expensive weightlifting shoes, get some Chuck Taylor's. They'll do the trick on the cheap.
That's about it. I have myself an extremely solid power rack which should allow my wife and I to do heavy olympic lifts as safely as possible. Compared to doing heavy squats, this installation was a piece of cake!
