Cage was easy to build and is quality as advertised. One part was damaged in shipping. I simply emailed Grind and had a replacement part within a few days. Great customer service!!
Was eyeing this up for a few weeks, there seemed to be many budget options. Goal was to get the most bang for buck. Suddenly the rack was 20% off so I made the purchase. Ordered over a holiday weekend and it still showed up very quickly. Ordered Sept 1st, received Sept 6th. FEDEX never bothered to update tracking, still to this day the tracking says delivery pending. The box is 100% a two-person lift, very difficult to carry without help. Assembly was a piece of cake without help. Definitely would be easier with some assistance. Be wary of the 1-inch holes, they have some sharp metal shavings here and there, would be a nasty metal splinter. A light sanding took care of the sharp splinters within the 1-inch holes. I have used budget power/squat racks in the past, they wiggle and sometimes come off the ground. The Alpha3000 however has zero wobble, is very stable, and never lifts off the ground. I did not bolt it to the ground, but I do have it on a padded surface. 2" x 2" numbered uprights don't have 1-inch spacing in the bench area, but that's totally fine given the price. The J cups are very sturdy, and the rubber is very hard. The pullup bar has very nice grippy material. Sadly I'm unable to hang freely. I'm over 6 feet tall and therefore my feet hit the ground. I also purchased the 3-Post Flat Bench. Very light and easy to move around. No wheels. The smaller third post does tilt to the side if you're not careful. The padding is pretty thin but gets the job done. The material on the bench is textured and grippy. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would recommend the Alpha3000 to anyone looking for a sturdy well-built power rack at this budget price point.
Ordered last Friday came in the following Thursday! Pretty easy to put together the directions could be a little different from how I installed it. Overall sturdy as ****! And worth the $420 I paid with shipping!!! Highly recommend this
Pretty easy to put together! So far the cage has exceeded my expectations. Solid. Very pleased so far with my purchasing experience. Will definitely purchase from Grind again!
