I have this exact model from Costco in my basement. It's been great as everyone mentioned but some information and suggestions for other potential buyers.

1. Weight - This thing is as heavy as you'd expect. It comes on a pallet with three large boxes and a bunch of boxes full of weights. You might be able to move the pieces by yourself but really should be at least two people. It took 4-5 hours to get fully put together.
2. It comes with more resistance that i expected. I debated on ordering additional weight from the manufacturer Day 1 but glad I didn't.
3. Motion - Smoother than i expected. The cable move really smoothly for a non-commercial piece of equipment. For tricep pushdowns it is a little short but it's doable and there many alternatives.
4. Bench - For me, it is basically garbage. It's far too short for practical use and I ended up getting a regular size one off Amazon that is much better.
5. Wall poster - Since i'm not the only one in the house to use it I got a $10 wall poster from Amazon that has a bunch of different types of exercises.
6. Flooring - Costco had some really nice 1/2" foam gym padding I got to put this and other equipment on. If you're even considering it, doing the flooring first will be a hell of a lot easier than after.

Overall i'm very happy with it as it substitutes many other pieces of equipment, and is quick to switch exercises. Hope this was helpful
I'm not in the market for this item, but I just wanted to give you some karma and appreciation for your post. It makes the decision to buy or not buy, so much easier for all when we have SlickDealer users give their first hand account/experience. That's sometimes better than the reviews you find online.

All the best,

These types of trainers are typically used for accessory movements. Not sure how or why you would want to squat, bench or deadlift with this. Aside from those, this would be enough resistance for any other type of compound movement.

Intriguing, but a comment on the past thread on this has me worried: "Bought this and later cancelled my order because with a non-upgradeable weight stack of only 165lb and a 1:2 ratio, the max resistance will only be 82.5lb."

That's not much resistance for the bigger compound exercises.

Think you got it backwards. It supposedly doubles the resistance. Its apparently 330 lbs.

Sorry, I copied his comment, which is incorrect. From the website: 1:2 resistance ratio

So it halves the weight.

Great price for a functional trainer that includes accessories and a bench. I was debating between this one and fray fitness but ended up going with fray for more long term usage.

For the vast majority of people looking for something this will suffice. As someone else mentioned, this is mostly for accessory work. 80ish lbs per side is a lot for that.

What kind of cable exercise are you doing that requires more than that? Some janky squat or deadllift variation?
