Hi guys, i'm intrested in picking up a squat rack and I found what I think might be a good deal: 300lbs of olympic weights + olympic bar and weider sqt rack for $200.00. Do any of you use this setup? what is the max weight capacity of this squat rack? and lastly.. is it a good deal or should I pass it up? pic should be included:

i'd go for a bench like this (this one is over priced) which you can get for around 100-200 http://www.sportsauthority.com/produ...tPage=category

I like it. I love rack setups. Never have to leave it while at the gym lol. Ive used them since i started to lift in one form or another for both bench and squats.
Then all you need is some wood to make platforms in front of it for your deads and cleans and it will be a perfect home gym <-- I train for sports as i guess you could see so you probably wont be doing cleans."One Day I will become a pheonix and rise anew from the ashes"

Ibey777, So basicly, if I were standing in the cage squating 155lbs I would be 5lbs over the manufacturers limitation if I failed and came down on those catchers?
If this is the case... I'm already squating over 150lbs, so I guess I need to look into a better rack? I just want something that can safley catch atleast 300lbs if accidently dropped or failure or anything. Saftey being my main concern. Any suggestions guys?
