I've never heard of Tuff Stuff. Any feedback on the quality of their equipment? Might pick this up this weekend if it any good. Been looking on Craigs list forever for a power rack in my area.

Never heard of it, but if it's the same one that's on their website (the home gym version) then $200 looks like a good deal.

We have these at our shcool. They are pretty good but none of us are squatting 600lbs+

I got an email back from the guy. He said it is 10 years old and he doesn't know what model number it is.

The posts look kind of small in that pic. Should I not get anything if the posts are less than 3" thick?

The base isn't raised so sumo dead would be hard. I pull conventional so that wouldn't be a total deal breaker for me. But, at some point I should pull sumo off and on to work out different muscles. I could always pull sumo outside the cage, though. Or retrofit it with 2x4's to raise it up.

This is what I did with my rack; worked out pretty good.
