    weider 200 power tower...is it good?

    kmart has this cheaper than walmart..go figure..

    i weigh in at 250lbs and would like to know if the weider power tower will be able to handle a big guy like me?

    i of course hope to drop down to 215 in the next few months but i would really like to add some pullups/dips to my routine if possible.

    Does the "200" mean 200 lb capacity?

    Most power towers are capable of at least 300lbs.

    I suspect at 250 it's going to be shaky and wobbly.

    Anyone got pics or a link?
    Our KMarts here have nothing even close to resembling a power tower.

    I have this tower. The user weight capacity is 300 lbs according to the manual. The tower is pretty stable. I am 5'8" and weigh 195 lbs. I started using this with a 25 lb weight vest and still feels pretty solid.

    Gee, this sounds great! How about posting a pic of yourself to show everyone the development you've been able to attain using this equipment?
