Power Rack for Home Gym?

Hello guys,

I´d like to buy power rack and make basic home gym. I am thinking about this one:

Do you think it is good choice or would you recommend anything else?

Thanks

If you’re going to buy a compact rack that weighs in at 80kg, make sure you can bolt it down.

Looks similar to the rack I bought from repfitness. I got the PR-3000 that does not bolt down, but has a bigger footprint so it doesn’t tip. I’ve been happy with it, but was strongly considering a rack that bolts down so there is a smaller footprint.

Bought two of these. One for my garage, one for my father.

Never had an issue. Very solid piece of equipment. Mines now coming on 9 years of use and still barely any wear and tear. Has holes in the bottom in you want to bolt it down. I don’t know why you’d need to, I’ve squatted 405 with me basically leaning into the tower hoping the rack wouldn’t move…it barely moved.
