The Weider Pro 6900 Weight system Was A Great Buy. The machine wasn't to hard to assemble, All the parts were clearly marked ;and the instructions were easy to read and understand. Running the cable system was a little tricky but would have been easier with two people assembling it. It did take me about five hours to put together and I did it by myself. I have been using it for several weeks now and seems to be well constructed.
I've had this "Gym" for 1.5 years. I weigh in at 160 lbs male and consider myself moderate at workouts. The metal frame that holds the seat to the frame bent and snapped off at the welds (could of been serious hurt). Contacted weider they told me they couldn't do anything for me but could sell me the part for $150. I paid less than $400 for the whole gym. Called sears they said it past the 90 day warranty, noting they could do. Sooo If you intend on actually using this gym, and it really is only good for a few exercises (mainly the bench). Be prepared for shotty workmanship that nobody will back after 90 days. Next time I will get a bowflex they actually stand behind there products. Good luck..
I ordered the item to be picked up.
They said one box.
Went to store to pick it up it was three boxes but only had 2.
Said the other box was in the bigger box. I was not.
No one could find the other box.
Went to return it at store. They said I had to buy something 1st.
Then customer service said OK will pick it up at your house.
They picked up only one box.
Had to wait for them to comeback to pick up the other.
No refund. Said to wait 3 days. After 6, no refund.
Was told to wait another 3 days.
So many call to get this resolved and each time is like starting over again.
I purchased the Weider Pro 6900 in Aug 2018, and the back rest snapped at the weld spot on the back of back rest. From what I can see it will cost half of what I paid for the entire machine to order a new back rest. Very disappointed. Does anyone know if this metal is the type I could have someone re-weld it?
