    Deads don't hit the quads as much as squats do; however, they do get most of the other musculature involved (hams, glutes, pretty much the entire back); and they also result in the same growth...

    You hit the nail on the head. Been working with just the bar and the weight for the past several months. Only other equipment I use is a pair of sawhorses for loading.
