Always buy commercial quality *used* equipment for home use.

A Powerhouse Gym closed near me and I bought half their inventory on the cheap + scouring want-adds.

Over 1k lbs and 1k dumbells with commercial quality benches, a power cage, weight racks ... etc in meh house.

Prolly paid 20-30 cents on the dollar and nothing will ever break.

If $ is an issue you can build one for half the price --> Here is the link [youtu.be]

Good deal on a sturdy rack. This one is constructed from a 12-gauge steel frame, while the racks you see at this price range are usually made of 14-gauge steel (much lighter). And the lat-pull down attachment is a bonus.

However, I do have some concerns about the correctness of the specs. This rack weighs only 135 lbs. That is suspiciously low for something built with 12-gauge steel, seems more like 14-gauge. And the max capacity of 500 lbs also suggests a lighter steel.

For comparison, the well rated Titan HD Power Rack ($410 @ Amazon) [amazon.com] built with 12-gauge steel weighs 230 lbs and has a max weight capacity of 1000lbs.

The Valor BD-7 is more comparable to the PowerLine PPR200X [amazon.com] and similar racks. If I were buying, I'd rather spend the few extra $$s and get the Titan HD which is a clone of the very popular Rogue R-3 Power Rack [roguefitness.com].

Edit: Rakuten listed the wrong weight, according to the Valor website, the weight of the rack is 180lbs. That is more in-line with its 12-gauge construction. The Titan HD has 2"x3" steel, while the Valor had 2"x2" steel, this might account for the 50lb difference in their weights. The Valor's low weight capacity of 500 lbs is a bit troubling though - maybe the manufacturer is playing it safe by stating a modest figure. Anyway, how many of us would actually lift 500 lbs at home? So if you need/want the lat tower, then this is a good deal.

I spent alot more for this after Xmas. Pretty solid rack. Little tight inside due to the pulldown station. But I can still do squats just fine. Took about 3 hours to put together. Cable movement is pretty smooth too on the pulldown station.

perhaps for someone who knows not how to . . . however, the one that is shipped to you requires assembly too.

to all the people wondering about the sturdiness of this rack. unless u are a professional powerlifter u won't budge this thing. it does move side to side a little bit though. but I have dropped about 300 lbs on it and the safety bars held up fine. I bought this like two years ago and it still works perfectly. but the rack is kinda small depth wise. I'm 6ft and 190lbs and I wish it did have a foot more of depth. I sometimes feel cramped while squatting. cuz I can only take one or two small steps back. but for the price still highly recommended.
