But honestly it shouldn't be that bad since the cage isn't that big when taken apart.

This is why I always keep the box.

But honestly, no weight and no bars. I'm probably not building this for a while.

So I ended up getting the Smith combo machine and it arrived in 3 heavy boxes.
For the people who have received and assembled their rigs, did you place it right on the flooring or on mats.
I have these coloured foam mats, would they work?

The foam mats would be better than nothing

Exactly this! I put something similar down in my basement (also purchased from Costco but this one looks like it's from a different manufacturer) with laminate floors underneath, and after about 3 years of daily use with a cage and another multi-use machine on it, they've been great!

The foam mats, although decent, don't provide for a very steady surface.

They'll save your floor for sure!

How have the foams mats held up? I don't (intentionally) drop weights. I have so many foam mats when I padded the kids play room. I'm hoping to reuse them.

I've only had it for a month, but it seems to be fine. Anything heavy >100 pounds on it will leave a permanent mark in the foam, same with objects with sharp corners.
I paid roughly $100 for 10x10 foot which seems well worth it.

I went from foam puzzle mats to stall mats, I like them a lot better. No rubber smell either after leaving them outside for a while.

It really comes down to what type of exercises you will be doing. Your floors look pretty nice so at the minimum use the kid mats.

The foam mats I had were a little slippery and didn't feel as secure, but way cheaper than getting stall mats.

$100 for a 10'x10' is a pretty good deal. Where did you get it?

So out of the 1000 pieces in this beast turns out I had one that decaying on me.
It's a piece from the pec dec. Hoping I can keep building without it.
Anyone request for new parts?
What's the lead time on getting it?

Marcy has pretty low quality control on their products and their email support sucks. I ordered an olympic weight tree from them and one of the base pieces was missing holes where it shouldve been drilled. I couldn’t assemble it so its currently dead weight.

Emailed them a few weeks ago, apparently its shipped but still waiting for the piece. Their communication is very sloppy and unprofessional - spelling mistakes, no greetings/salutations, various fonts and text sizes. Seems like its just a person responding on their phone.

I’m still within amazon return period so I’m going to return if I dont get the piece next week.
