    Power rack/cage vs Smith Machine? Help me choose between two.

    Hey Guys!
    I'm currently deciding between a Smith Machine and Power rack/full cage. I have found 2 both over $1000. The Smith Machine includes a lat tower, bench and handles for $1500. The Full Cage has a lat tower included for $1200. I have read a bit about the pros/cons of each and would like some help deciding! Here are the links to the 2 options.
    I can't post links yet since I haven't posted enough, however they are both from Flaman Fitness and on their website. The Smith Machine is the Progression MD9010 Smith Machine. The Rack is the TuffStuff Power Cage (Rack). Input on pros/cons of each and the brand opinions would be nice!

    Thanks in advance!

    Go with an actual power rack. Personally I wouldn't bother getting one with a lat tower but if you want one, no reason not to get one. If you haven't already, read the power rack stickie.

    Funk, I'm guessing you're Canadian.

    With your budget, my advice would be to opt for a power rack....but why from Flaman. It's an alright rack but you can do better with your budget of 1000-1500. Just as an example you could get either the Sorinex Dark Horse or the Rogue R3 for around $1000 shipped to your door. There are other nice racks out there too.

    I've messed around with that rack you're thinking of buying and it's alright....but the two racks I suggested are better.

    I've never looked into the economical considerations choosing between the two but from an exercise stand point I would go with the power rack. A lot more core/basic lifts of any program can be done in the power rack.

    Power rack, hands down. It's the same question of machines vs free weights, google it, if you had to choose only 1, free weights are 1000x better for every single training goal.

    Also, I think you are mistaken that power cage includes a lat tower, all it said it that it's an option, I do not believe that price includes the lat tower.

    That being said that rack is horribly horribly overpriced for what it is. You're better off buying a powertec rack and the lat attachment and then a powertec bench or something for a similar price.

    TuffStuff doesn't make very high quality stuff. Depends how hard / heavy you would be training but for that price there are much better options out there that will come with more.

    Keep in mind finding used weights / equipment is an effective way to save a ton of money.

    Get a smith machine with a gun rack get the best of both worlds ,better still get a smith machine with gunrack and built on pullup bar .Smith machines get a bad rap from people that dont know how to use them correctly.Or people that think because u train on one u do not do any free weight movements.I say do both mix it up keep it fresh and interesting heres a great link by John Meadows on the values of using a smith machine check it out guy knows what hes talking about.

    Thanks for all the responses! Thanks for pointing out the lat tower on the power rack i'll have to go down there and check it out, if its not included the price seems high. If its not included, they sell powertec power racks in the city, $500 for the rack and $500 for the lat tower. Bench for around $300 so that might be a good choice. Thank you for posting that smith machine article. However i'm currently leaning towards the rack, the variation of stuff you can do safely and im pretty comfortable with a freeweight system rather than than a smith machine. Any other input about smith or power racks would be nice! Thanks again

    More than happy with my Powertec WB-PR11 Rack and Lat Attachment : )

    I got the WB-PR11 rack in the beginning of November and was so happy with it I ordered the WB-LTO13 Lat attachment a couple of weeks later.
    I've been using a Powertec Half Rack for a few years now and decided to upgrade to a full rack and after much research I decided to stay with the Powertec name and I'm glad that I did.
    After using it for a few months now I'm very pleased with my Powertec rack and Lat Attachment,no question in my mind that I made the right choice.

    Looks sick man for the price its awesome. For the lat attachment is there 2 attachment points? Or just a single one? Also does the lat attachment slide down at all for upward pull exercises?

    Personally, I'd buy a Tuff Stuff product over a Powertec any day. That rack (RPR-265) has some nice features is built with 2x3 11ga oval tubing, which is more than sufficient for the majority of folks on this forum.

    I also like the pin system they use for their spotter arms...

    I bought my Powertec WB-PR11 Rack and WB-LTO13 Lat Attachment from best buy fitness,for a bit less than what it is now.They had the best price at that time and I couldn't have been more pleased with their communication,service and how quickly I received it.

    bestbuyfitness.com/product_detail_3083.aspx ($579 and the Lat Attachment is $529 =$1108)

    This is posted on their website:
    * Please Call Us if you find a lower price, to take advantage of our 110% Price Match Guarantee 1-888-882-2348

    I see it's selling for less ($549 and the Lat Attachment is $449 = $998 ) from fitness factory outlet,but I don't know anything about them.
    I would guess that bestbuyfitness would give you the 110% Price Match Guarantee so you might luck out and it be even less than fitness factory's lesser price.

    fitnessfactoryoutlet.com/store/Powertec-Power-Rack.html

    I found Sam's Club to be the best source for the BodySolid Lat Attachments that I bought.Even with the non-member 10% surcharge ,they still beat everyone's price.
    Wayfair was a close runner up for the items not available at Sam's
