Super sturdy construction, I tried pushing over the tree full of weights and couldn't do it. A big plus because I have kids. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swole225 Better weight tree on the market
This weight tree has sturdy construction and enough spacing to allow easy organization and zero overlapping of weights. However, two complaints that don't warrant losing stars:
(1) The bar holder is too snug for bars whose sleeves are not smooth, like the bar in the Fitness Gear 300lb set. But it's perfect for smooth sleeves, like on EZ curl bars.
(2) The pegs are not wide enough to accommodate ONLY holding 45 pound plates. In other words, you can't make this a dedicated 45lb plate tree, or you can't use it to store and organize bumper plates easily. However, four of the six can be used solely for 45lb plates/bumper plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmy-Pops Solid, High Quality Plate Tre
I've been on the hunt for a well priced olympic plate tree for a while now. I purchased a used weight bench that came with four-hundred pounds of olympic plates, alas, no way to store them; until I discovered this Fitness Gear plate tree.
This item is fantastic. The tree is about two maybe three feet high fully assembled. It is rated to hold over one-thousand pounds of plates which is nuts, I can't imagine anyone having that much. For the four-hundred I have the tree is solid as a rock; no wobbling, bending, nothing. The paint finish is also very nicely done save for one area around where the slot for a bar goes that's lighter in color than the rest. But honestly who cares it does its job and that's what matters to me. Speaking of the bar holder; wonderful feature. I recently purchased the Fitness Gear curl bar and it goes right in for when I don't need it.
All in all for the money you can't beat this plate tree. Dicks could justify charging much more for this item. $60 is a steal for a tree of this quality!
