Enough space for a Rogue S2 Squat Stand?

I have decided to go for a Rogue S2 squat stand for my backyard. Ideally, I would set it up in a 87"x96" space between my deck and my neighbor's apartment. Does this seem like enough room for the squat stand and to do pullups, KTE, etc? The base of the stand is about 43"x48" according to the rogue site.

I would like to build a platform and bolt it down, but perhaps going the opposite route and putting wheels on it would be a better idea so that I can make more room when doing O-Lifts, and move it away from walls when doing pullups?

Re: Enough space for a Rogue S2 Squat Stand?

The S-2's footprint is 48 x 48.

I'm in a one car garage, and had this same question. So, I taped off a 48 x 48 area and did some lifts there, to see how it would work with my limited space. My space is a bit bigger than 87 x 96, but I decided on the S-2.

Hope that helps.

That's almost exactly what my space is and it's working fine for me. I'm not sure which measurement is which direction but if you put the S-2 where those squat stands are, it will be real tight against that white door. I'd slide the stand out a little to the right of where those stands are (Off Center from the mats) just to give yourself more room between the end of the bar and the white door. Loading 45s will be much easier.
