After searching through what seemed like countless power towers online, I finally decided on this one from Walmart because of the price, and because of the free shipping. I wanted a simple, no frills, no moving parts, user friendly power tower and that is exactly what this is. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, and nothing more. I weigh in at the limit of this tower, 250lbs. and it does rock slightly when doing chin-ups. But most people interested in a power tower will not have that problem with this item.
Dips are great if a little wide, and push-ups are great as well. My only advice is that if you also want to include knee raises, go with another product. I can do knee raises fine, but I also have a wider reach, and for most people this PT would prove difficult for doing knee raises.
Overall, I am satisfied with my no frills PT.
Assembly time was 1:30 hr., which was about average. I don't know why weight machines insist on using their own one of a kind tool to fasten bolts instead of a standard wrench or socket set, but it was easy to construct.
So far I've used this PT every day without problems, and it is easy to move around when I need to.
