This would be for just me and my wife. Do you guys think this one would hold up? Thanks,

Re: Ghd

I've had the same one for three years and use it a ton with no complaints or issues. I say go for it! Make sure you get the split pad and not the solid one though. If it comes with the regular one Yukon will send you the split for $20.

Much easier on the man parts....

Re: Ghd

I have one and like it, but Yukon has had to send me replacement parts two times for it. Twice I have had the welds break at the elbow section where it goes vertical for the foot pads. At the base where it connects to the horizontal section it is a pretty thin steel and there is only a small gussett on the inside part for strength. After mine broke the second time they welded reinforcement steel strips to the outer parts and it is much stronger now. They have always been very responsive and are a good company to deal with, but keep an eye out for this fault in the equipment.

These pictures show where the problem spot is, and how they corrected it for me.

Re: Ghd

Thanks for that info. I have a buddy of mine that could do that weld for me. I will probably go ahead and have it done.

Thanks,
Matt
