Disappointed
by -
The transaction was quick on delivery. The chair worked well but it didn't last. The seat nearly fell off the hydraulic piston after 4 months of use. The manufacturer sent a replacement with no hassles, however, replacing the piston/seat assembly that was sent was quite a chore to remove and replace. After finally successfully removing and replacing the piston/chair assembly problems developed again. It appears to me that the hydraulic piston is not adequate for the rating of the chair. The stem on the piston doesn't fit the seat assembly correctly, there is too much play where the seat assembly and piston contact. I plan to contact the manufacturer again. Perhaps this time I will receive satisfaction. This remains a challenge for the lifetime warranty by the manufacturer.

Don't Buy This Chair
by -
I've had this for about 2 months now and it is the most uncomfortable piece of furniture I've ever bought. Durable? Yes. Well made of solid materials that should last close to a lifetime. Both seat and back are very well cushioned. Large Enough for the 'Big and Tall' population? Yes. Easy to assemble? Yes. The problem is that the back of the chair is angled backwards and provides no shoulder support and very little back support for a 'high-back' chair. I have a home office and I spend a great deal of time in this chair. My most valuable(and expensive) lesson learned is to NEVER purchase a piece of furniture without trying it out first.

Price ok, Not the Best Quality
by -
The chair assembled easily. It was reasonably priced, considering the others I looked at that were rated for 500 lbs were much more expensive. However, I didn't feel that the chair itself was as comfortable as it should have been for the escalated price vs. a 250-lb. rated chair. It is very hard and uncomfortable. Safco could have compensated for the lack of give in the base by adding a little padding to the seat and back.

Too big
by -
The reason I bought the chair is I'm a big person. I'm not a tall person. The chair was actually too deep for me to sit on comfortably and be able to touch the floor. They sell a shorter hydraulic pump, but I didn't want any added expense, so I returned the chair. Also, it wasn't the most comfortable chair. After just one day I could see where the foam was compressing in the seat. Wish I could find something else...

Big and Tall Chair Win
by -
 Verified purchaser
We were looking for a big and tall chair and have purchased others than were never comfortable. This one has a wide and a wide seat -- not assuming a big and tall person might also fit on a standard size seat. The hydraulics are sturdy enough to hold, as well. Locking casters might be a good option.
