[Walmart] Progear 1600 Ultra Strength 800lb Weight Capacity Power Cage -- $349 + $39 shipping

Image

This is a decent price for a highly rated cage that's in stock. I decided to finally upgrade my half rack and grab this.
It's the exact same thing as the 810XLT that's going for $443, with the only difference being the j-hooks (better IMO).

Unfortunately there's $39 shipping, and store pickup is not an option, so the shipped price is $388 + tax.

You may notice some negative reviews saying the support bars in the back hit your head when you're racking/unracking, but all you have to do is to move the j-hooks to the inside of the front uprights.
So you'll still be squatting inside the cage, but you'll be racking/unracking your bar from the front uprights with no support bar to interfere.

•800 lbs weight capacity
•Large walk in space providing easy side to side movement
•2" x 2" square steel frame construction
•Two J-Hooks with easy lock-in design for racking/un-racking Olympic bars
•Two 23" long chrome dual mounted safety bars
•19 adjustable height levels for the safety bars
•Safety bars are compatible with 7' Olympic bars
•Multi-position over head chin up/pull up grip bars
•2 rear stability bars
•Warranty: 1 Year Limited
•Set up Dimensions: 50.4" L x 46.3" W x 83.7" H
•Set up Weight: 127.4 lbs

Good deal. It says $50 shipping for me, but it's probably location based.

Huh, I didn't know Walmart did that. Still shows $39 for me in Mtl.
I ordered yesterday and got notice for shipment with a carrier today. It's supposed to arrive on Sunday.

A cage is a must-have for anyone who benches without a spotter. Before I got a cage, often I get trapped beneathe the bar.

I'm in for one.
I had been considering buying a bellsofsteel cage and doing a local pickup. But a highly rated cage with acceptable shipping costs is great too.

thanks Nev.

I was eyeing the fitness reality cage on Amazon but this looks like the same thing just rebranded and cheaper. Btw shipping was $39 for me in Edmonton. Now I need a bench, a bar, weights, and rubber mats... Thanks OP

Any chance that cable attachments like lat pulldown and rows can be installed?

I purchased the one from Amazon and love it. I ended up paying 501 with taxes for that. This one from Walmart is about $60 cheaper all said and done.
Ironically, I had everything else you mentioned but was just missing the cage 🤠

Uh you can barely get a bar for this price yet alone a rack. This looks like a decent pick up for a good price.

For what it's worth I've had a BOS light commercial rack for a few years. It's awesome and I highly recommend all of their stuff. But this looks like a decent deal and it's in stock.

Don't believe this rack or the fitness reality version has attachments but I have the fit505 power rack from treadmillfactory.ca, highly recommend it. Shipling was ~$130 to BC.

They're both 2'*2* so attachment should fit each other

Bells of steel (BOS) light commercial rack. For the money it's really tough to beat. Comes with safety straps, roller cups, J cups, and band pegs. Thing is solid.

BOS really does have solid equipment for the price.

Edit: just an fyi I received a BOS email saying they are going to do a pre-order for almost everything coming up real soon so maybe subscribe to the mailing list.
