It's an OK deal. I got the Gymano equivalent from British Fitness for £199 that could take 225kg.
This one only says 160kg which wouldn't be enough for someone who wanted to do some decent squatting, but as mentioned above, it's a good beginners rack.
A good beginners rack? I'd say this would probably suit 90% of gym users quite comfortably. Not everyone will be wanting to see what gives out first their sphincter, knees or back.
It would suit 90% to begin with, yes.
Having to take it all down again, flog it and buy another one next year maybe not so.
Usually someone who gets a rack like this would be aiming to lift heavy weights.
The price is about right for what it is, not a bad deal at all. The ease of dealing with Argos may be preferable than going through Amazon/E-bay etc.
what about those who just want to stay fit rather than building muscle for no other reason than to lift potato sacks?
If you just want to stay fit then you wouldn't need something like this.. This is a pointless product, hence the reduction in price. If you just want to stay fit then a set of dumbells would suffice, if you want to build muscle then this is pointless as 60kg is a tiny amount to lift for the average male. a 60kg bench or squat is basically beginner.
60kg is not the maximum weight, this is a mistake on the argos website, these are the true restrictions:
Maximum user weight: 160 kg.
Maximum bar rack weight: 130 kg.
Maximum pulley trolley weight: 100 kg.
Maximum barbell rest weight: 160 kg.

160kg is more than enough for most gym users, not just for begginers but any serious lifter unless you are an advanced power lifter. The heaviest lift this rack would be used for is a squat, and if you make sure you are squatting with perfect form, which is far more important than adding weight not just for safety and to prevent injury, but also for proper gains, then it will be many years before you reach 160kg in total, no matter what some apparent lifters on here will have you beleive. The heaviest lift you will perform is deadlift, but this lift is done from the floor and not rested on the rack. As for bench press, there is apsolutely no chance you will be benching 160kg unless again you are a highly advanced lifter, anyone who can bench press in excess of their own bodyweight is doing well. I have owned a rack for 5 years and have been working out 4 days a week with a week off every 8 weeks ever since, i make sure I eat the correct calories and macros for best gains and I have had good results in this time. I have made sure all my lifts are as close to perfect form as possible (no-one is apsolutely perfect), and have slowly increased weight as I have gained strength, and after all that I will be honest and say that this rack would easily handle the weight which I am lifting, the heaviest weight I would use it for is squatting and I am currently lifting 120kg, and I don't expect I will ever exceed 160kg.

Nice find. Looks like a good deal for a power rack. Having the high and low cable pulleys is a good additional feature.
#2
decent price for what it is, the maximum load of 60kg isn't going to suit many people for long with an exercise like Lat Pulldown but it's a good begineers rack

I'd have been all over this if the max resistance was more sensible!

To adress the sphincter, knees, back comment...

Squatting, and slowly increasing the weight on the bar by just 2.5kg increments per workout would exceed the weight limit on this rack in less than 5 months.

2.5kg increase per workout isn't reckless enough to wreck their "sphincter, knees and back", in fact, squatting with these increments in weight will ironically strengthen your knees and back to avoid any injuries.

Just food for thought for those who don't want to have to sell this rack on in 6 months time.
#12
I probably wouldn't get too bogged down with the amount the rack can withstand as it'll be able to hold more but the Pulldown attachment at 60kg would be my biggest concern

I purchased the Gymano off british fitness for £199 when they had them on ebay. It's been a fantastic bit of gym equipment.
In reference to the 60kg- i would question if that is in relation to the cable weight limit?

exactly, you get a lot of people that go 'I REED STRONG LIFTS - ADD 2.5KG PER WURKOUT AND CAN DO FORVERS!.... ONE YEAR = ADD 390KG YEAHS!!'

erm nope, why do you think its a beginners program? initial gains look good as you were weak before and basically fulfilling your basic strength potential with a structured program.
no way its lasting forever though and most will stall well before 6 months on squat, never minding overhead press which is likely way less.

...heck and thats the ones that actually read rather than spouting irrelevant rubbish about 60kg squats

You don't have to be an advance powerlifter for this to be useless. Not everyone is the same as you, some people are naturally bigger and as such will start at quite a bit more than you, which would mean this rack wouldn't be worth buying.
#36
Personally I wouldn't say useless. Especially considering this is for home use. 100kg on a pulley will give a reasonable workout but you're right, you wont look like Arnie at the end of the day. Also, your average home user isn't going to be benching 160kg. Perhaps the strong guys down the gym will be, but they are down the gym.

For me, the benefits I see in this are

1.) I have access to a pulley system at home to do exercises I cannot do at the moment without one.
2.) I have access to a chin up bar that is wider than my door way installed one
3.) I have a bar (the chin up bar) that I can use for TRX workouts
4.) I have a rack that can help be doing squats etc. Currently I only deadlift at home due to not having the facility to get it over my head easily.
5.) It replaces my current dip station
6.) it allows me to tidy my weights away rather than the discs being scattered on the floor.

To me that's a lot of plus points. I accept that for my lats or for the cable row, the weight isn't huge but considering I don't have this facility at all at the moment, it's better than nothing.

people do talk some bull on here.

as someone stated:

Maximum user weight: 160 kg.
Maximum bar rack weight: 130 kg.
Maximum pulley trolley weight: 100 kg.
Maximum barbell rest weight: 160 kg.

This could last a beginner forever if max barbell rest weight is 160kg. Not many in the gym could lift that unless they were taking something or there natural body shape and size permitted it.

If you are say 5'9 and 60-70kg, this kit would last you. So if you are average height and slim build this is an excellent piece of kit for the price. If you are naturally big or bulky, or just a big fat git, forget it, get something else

not everyone has the natural body shape and size of arnie so even if they went to the gym every day for years, they couldnt get that size.

this would do people of average height who want to start body building, get toned and in shape. Not everyone wants to double their body weight, become a power lifter and have to consume 5000 calories a day.
