Does anyone have any comments on the Weider Club 540 bench, rack and cage unit?

I have an opportunity to get it used at what seems like a reasonable price, but it is not located all that close to me. I'll make the trip asap if anyone here can give it a good reference.

Here is the only pic I could find on the net (link is safe/safe) http://www.fitnessrepairparts.com/eq...Equipment/3659

Thanks.

I used a Club Weider 500 half cage for several years and found it quite durable.

I routinely had over 300 pounds on the lat machine and keep two loaded bars on the rack. I really like the Weider grip weights too.

For the price, it was a good piece of equipment. I know it is not the full cage that you are looking at but it is built about the same (the cage was too tall for my basement).

I just got rid of a Weider 240 Bench (Flat/Incline/Decline Olympic width) that held up for several years.
