Today, I’ll be reviewing another power tower that has recently hit the market. This fella is manufactured by Lucky Tree. They make all sorts of fitness gear including weight benches, vertical climbers, power racks and power towers. But in this review, I’ll of course focus on the Lucky Tree adjustable power tower.
Overview and Features
The entire tower frame is made of heavy-duty steel and has anti-rust power coat finish. The narrow base comes with rubber foot pads for better stability and also to protect your floor. The pull-up bar has horizontal-angled and parallel grips, so you can do pull-ups, chin-ups and muscle-ups. Dip station is pretty standard, bars for dips and knee raises as well. The cushioned arm rests and back rest take care of the comfortable exercise positions – both are also ergonomically designed.
The tower is fully adjustable, dip station and pull-up bar are each adjustable separately. The maximum weight support is 660 lbs.
Overall Dimension for dip station: (41″- 51.57″) H x 28″ L x 30″
Overall dimensions for power tower: (62.2″- 84.6″) H x 40″ L x 25″
Is Luck Tree Adjustable Power Tower Worth the Money?
Since I do not personally own this power tower, in regard to assembly I had to rely on online reviewers. Most agree that the assembly is easy and doable by one person, although the instructions could be clearer. But from my own experience, it never hurts to have a buddy ready to help you out. Also the packaging is very well done, bubble wrap protecting various parts just fine. It can be also assembled with the provided tools, but I’d not recommend it. Hex heads are 17 mm so be ready to use adjustable wrench or a ratchet with an open-end. Be careful thought to not scratch the coat finish, as it can rust in the scratched places.
The frame of Lucky Tree adjustable power tower is very well designed. Despite the fact that it has a narrow base (which tends to be wobblier than wide base) it does not wobble, if you tighten the knobs correctly. However, if you are a heavier person, I’d recommend to either find a fixed place where the tower will remain and tighten it against the floor, or place some heavy-weight against the back-base of the tower.
The adjustment system works via adjustment knobs which are pressed against adjustment riser, thus securing it. Since both dip station and pull-up bar are adjustable, it can be used by the entire family.
The dip station is pretty standard, although several users reported that the grips are quite thin, so if you have large hands you might consider using extra rubber and reel it around the grips. The ergonomic and cushioned backrest and armrests are comfortable and large enough – no particular issue there. The handle distance is precisely 27.5 inches.
Thanks to the multi-grip pull-up bar, you can do all kinds of exercises like chin-ups, pull-ups and even muscle ups (check the ceiling height before doing so). The grips are a bit thin, but nothing to worry about. You can always use extra rubber and reel it around to make them wider.
Pros & Cons
My rating: 4.5 / 5
Overall, Lucky Tree Adjustable Power Tower is a great piece of equipment. I can imagine for it to being wobbly only if you weight 250 lbs + and the tower is placed on uneven floor. Otherwise, there are a lot of exercises that can be done on the tower. Personally, I think the tower is well worth the price.
