This machine is everything I was hoping for at a very good price. The materials and functionality of this machine are top notch. It only took about 15 minutes for my brother and I to assemble. Not many parts at all and it was very securely packed in it's box. Great product that is a very welcome addition to my home gym.
I also own the PowerTec leg press. Both are excellent construction at a good price point. The leg press is equivalent to HammerStrength at a third of the cost. Assembly was easy. Operation is smooth. I have an extensive gym, including Precor, Rogue, Torque Fitness among others. PowerTec makes great products. I use this piece for bench, shoulder press, lat pulls and shrugs. I like to separate the arms and add a band for unilateral exercises. This machine is also used extensively by my wife and son. I would have no hesitation purchasing from PowerTec again.
The workbench is an excellent machine. Well built and easy to use. I would definitely recommend this workbench.
Good, but could be great
Really easy to put together. Solid piece of equipment. Only thing that bothers me is when you want to change the height of the bar you have to take the weights off so you can move the pin. There should be a better engineered solution.
Great bench for those that don't have a spotter.
Heavy duty bench, easy to put together and in my opinion it's the perfect option for anyone that wants to lift heavy, but doesn't have a spotter. The only thing I dislike about it is, sometimes you're forced to put the lever arms in a position that's a bit too high, or a bit too low, but I guess that's the trade off. Overall it's a great bench and I'd definitely recommend it to friends and family. It's solid, well constructed and we'll designed.
