Last One Is On TradeMe - Powertec Power Rack, The Latest and Last
Most of our customers have owned racks before, and are interested in strength, stability, finish and features. In that order. Using one is about effort and commitment. You don't want the distraction of a feeble rack. Shimmies and creaks. Sharp corners. (Usually means thin steel)
Not this. An early maker of racks for home use, Powertec's for twenty years led the way with robustness, options, superb quality and finish. No bolts that sink into steel mush if you have to reassemble it. No weakly reinforced corners. Rigidity counts. In this rack, verticals don't just go into the base with backing plates. There are additional welded sleeves on the base plate - where forces concentrate - going up into the verticals, (see the last picture above) There are 6 pieces of steel for bolts to go through. Half-inch bolts too, not smaller metric types, which others have. And others don't have 40 of them. When things creak and move, it's usually because of weakness at lower front. Powertec keeps it solid and peaceful. (And who says racks weigh what they specify? Some suppliers have fine-print disclaimers about their webpage accuracy)
This all translates to enjoyment, using it more, and results. And this rack's tested to European Union standards (EN 957) for safety and performance. (....tested...not "meets") Over many hundreds in NZ, never a warranty claim, apart from some flaking on a chromed J-Hook, once, replaced. Other aspects:
- Major US brand. 20 years in the business. Owns its manufacturing. In control, end-to-end. Doesn't go out for quotes from third parties, then put their (famous-sounding but fake) brand on.
- Big square steel safeties, padded, protect your bar. Heavy-duty (180 kg) variable-grip chin up handles are included.
- Heavy duty movable dip bars, inwardly oriented for inner pecs. Good for inverted rows. These moves are money. And push ups.
- It takes 450 kg loads. Weighs 94 kg empty. - without plate holders, options.
- Check the super J-Hooks for bar protection
- Close-up quality and finish. Uses more cold-formed steel processes; makes equipment tougher, per unit of weight, and gives a far better finish. See the Powertec and Ironmaster Benefit.
- Speaking of quality and finish, why are other products seldom shown close-up?
- Faultless in hundreds in NZ, apart from one J-Hook, with flaked chrome, replaced on delivery.
Here's some serious stuff below - if you happen to squat 210 kg, have the confidence this man has with an old model Powertec rack, identical-spec unit.
In the next video Lee Priest (Mr Universe, Amateur) shows the variety of exercises . (He doesn't use any options or add-ons - dip bars are included) You get everything here.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – THERE IS NO WARRANTY
We have been surprised by a high price effect in warehouse costs, and a pile of freight and related increases. It’s the warehouse part that takes the edge off viability. It’s not worth continuing business on this basis. So we're closing. Near in mind though, that Powertec and Ironmaster hardly ever break. Customers have all been contacted, with a ton of goodwill. They've been a large proportion of buyers since we announced this.
