It looks like a good price (it sells on amazon for $170).

It's rated to 400#

In searching for details, it is also sold at Sears.

I dunno, to me it's like the type of mountain bike you'd buy at Sports Authority, vs a "real" bike shop.

However, given the price and the weight rating, if those work for you, then go for it.

For $100 more, you could get this [URL="http://www.roguefitness.com/store/product436.html"]York FTS[/URL] from Rogue. Don't know what it's rated, and only you can decide if it's worth 100 more beans.

I'm sure there are some other options, but I don't think you'll find any others at $120 that will be worth it.

This is also known as Body Solid Powerline Squat Stands. There are several threads about this, here are a couple:

These are a cheap common alternative to more the expensive and sturdy York Press Squat Stands. You may also want to look into Valor Athletics BD-3 stands. Don't forget about Craigslist, I was able to grab these custom made squat stands for $50. They were made by a local commercial grade equipment store that had a manufacturing factory about 5 years ago. Each stand is about 40 lbs.

Personally, I think that the cross-bar would get annoying and in the way, possibly causing a safety issue, especially on an emergency re-racking.
