IRONAX XP1 Power Rack / OB-85 / 255 lbs Steel Plate Set - $999

Deal Link:
Price:
$999
Savings:
$900
Retailer:
Treadmill Factory
I've been waiting for this to come in stock for a bit.
This looks like a great deal for me as these days just the plate set would cost over $630 with a going rate of $2.50/pound.

The rack is listed on their site for $399 and is rated at 700 lbs. Barbell is $169 on the site too.

Shipping to Markham would cost $256.47 but if your vehicle can handle the 7' length you can pickup in store.

No specs on the thickness of steel, no specs on the up right dimensions (they definitely aren't 3x3, they might be 2.5x2.5 but probably are 2x2)
No specs on max weight. Yeah it's probably fine for 250lb but how much more?
It's 87" high which is decent for a cheap rack, it's normally sufficient for people 6ft and under, if you're taller I'd consider what your fully stretched height is for pull ups and should press (if you do that in the rack)

I'd only get a rack like this if your planning to not use it after covid, you will out grow it quickly and it will have little resale value.

I find treadmill factory doesn't give exact specs for many (most) of their products. I feel like its deliberate. I did purchase their fit505 ultra rack, as part of a set like this, some time ago but they had most of the specs for that rack (2.5"x2.5", 1000 lb hook load, 12 gauge steel according to the Q&A). I agree with @KevlarCoated that without specs on load capacity and others e.g. gauge of steel, size of uprights you are taking a chance. That said if you are desperate this is not bad.

Also @bfresh I didn't realize you could pick up? Back in late 2020 this was not an option. I assume this has changed now? I've been meaning to get a couple of things but their shipping/freight kills their deals for me.

Lmao. Let me guess you’re the type of person who also needs a bar rated for 1000lbs.

Also criticizing the height of the rack as a negative? You realize a lot of people are restricted to their ceiling heights? I can’t go higher than 85 inches anyways.

This is a good deal for the average person, who likely won’t be loading the bar up past 275/315 for anything. Irregardless these budget racks and sets are good for 99% of people, especially right now. Unless you have a budget of 3K and want to flex brand name gear like Rogue, it will suffice.

Didn't realize they had all that info. I suppose there's enough there to justify buying. Esp. if you can pickup.

The uprights wouldn't be 3 1/8", that's the hardware itself (bolts, I assume). Given the cost of the rack I would guess they are 2x2 but obviously just speculating.

Thanks for clarifying. I was a bit confused by the 3 1/8 myself, as I haven't come across uprights at that dimension lol
And photos definitely didn't seem like a 3x3 frame. Post corrected Ok Hand Sign

Pretty good deal considering covid.

Pullies included in this price would the icing on top.

I think the top part can be flipped for those with low ceilings.

Pick it up beginning of the week. Simple to set up and built like a tank. My set up which included a dip attachment and band peg came to just over $1000 taxes included which is a decent value for the quality and versatility this rig gives you. This is essentially a Rogue ML-3 clone

for those for whatever reason need 3x3x11Ga can go for this one instead

I would assume 700lbs is more than enough for most people. If you are squatting 700lbs plus then sure a higher capacity rack is needed.

do you plan to bolt it down? I assume it is not flat footed.

The two links you provided for the 3"x3", 11 gauge options are decently priced however shipping cost are the deal breaker. Fitness Avenue quoted just under $400 for shipping... brutal. I was lucky enough to pick up my CrossBox rig locally and save a ton on shipping

I bought this combo from Treadmill Factory at the beginning of January and have nothing but good things to say. My reasoning for buying this instead of the cheap Wal-Mart rack was that I don't want to go back to the gym once they open back up and I know those cheaper racks leave a little to be desired. This rack is sturdy as hell, highly recommend.
