I don't really need/want some of the machines, but could not convince the seller to piece off the total.

Thanks again for any help!

Hmm.. 1000 bux is a bit pricey. Of course, 900lbs of weights, plus bumper plates and oly bars is enticing.

I haven't had the best experience with Powerhouse equipment.
I'd check it out to see if the squat rack is sturdy enough.

Personally: (If I had the space) I would probably do it, then re-sell a lot of the equipment I don't need.

I own a Body Solid adjustable bench, a Body Solid squat rack, and a Powerhouse dip station (dips/pullups/pushups). Also, I have two 300# weight sets, one I bought and one I got from my brother in law, and a bunch of small standard plates. I've had everything for about 5 years know and they've held up well. The bench, dip station, and power rack are solid and show no wear and tear. The bench adjusts from a decline up to 90 degrees. I used to bench on it quite frequently, but now use it for sit ups only. IIRC the Body Solid stuff has a lifetime warranty.

Attached is the link to the dealer thought I bought my equipment through. Work/home safe.
