Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep looking Made in China and the instructions might as well been in Chinese...if you even want to consider what they give you instructions. Also, poor quality of material considering you're 18' in the air. It's not very high but high enough to wish you had a better quality stand when you're up there. If you do buy this stand and piece it together, I recommend bring a ladder to attach the platform to the tree with the provided ratchet strap. Once you you that firmly attached, you'll be on your way. The instructions say this is a three man setup. I do not recommend this product at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Some flaws Hard to put together, seat will dry rot due to weather unlike the metal seat and shooting rail is closer it seems...if these 3 could be fixed this would be a great stand...really just go back to the original buddy stand and make it taller....problem solved!!!!! PS the 2018 stand I purchased came with a 2011 safety DVD inside. Unexplainable!!!!!... I can hunt out of the stand but the seat want last just like the blind I bought to cover I will give a min rate because it's still useable.....thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible, don't buy My friend bought this stand and we helped put it together and put it up. It is junk. I would have reboxed it and returned it if it were me but he insisted on finishing it. Ladder is horrible and noisy. Welds are not great, holes don't line up, bolts don't match the size they say to use, poor instructions, the seat will be useless in a year, it's unstable and just all around horrible. I bought two of the Ameristep 2 man 15' tree stands for 90 bucks each and they are far superior to this stand and have much more stability just shorter stands. Save your life, don't buy this junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible instructions and quality This Stand is horrible! Instructions are worse than an IKEA product, took hours to guess where the screws go because there is no legend, just numbers. Had to use vise grips and c-clamps to get seat to bolt on. Once together you see the terrible quality and light Chinese metal will not last but maybe a season, but don’t worry because the nylons seat will fall apart before that year is up. Do not waste your money on this junk excuse for a Stand!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Instructions nightmare! It’s pretty much your typical cheap 2-man ladder stand that they sell for a higher price than they should! Quality is “okay” for what it is but the assembly instructions are a nightmare! Thought it was just me for a min but 4 other people (non-related) agreed the instructions were terrible! Pieces, nuts, bolts, etc wasn’t labeled specific enough. Should have took half the time to assemble than it did like other same type brands. I will NOT buy this brand again unless they are practically giving them away!!! Rather spend a little more money on another brand and save the headache and lost time dealing with it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Game double ladder tree stand JUNK I just purchased this TERRIBLE LADDER STAND what a joke. They use mesh on the top seat that may make it thru one season, If the squirrels don’t eat at it, and just by being out in the weather it’s going to dry rot. if that’s not enough the support bar that’s positioned in the center is ridiculous if you try to sit in the center when you’re hunting by yourself you got a bar up your butt REALLY! This should not even be considered a double person stand it’s just not big enough period quality has really gone downhill don’t waste your money on this junk stand. The Drury Outdoors and driven TV THAT ARE INDORSING this junk product that have their name stamped on this ladder stand should at the least be embarrassed and if they value their reputation they need EITHER FIX THIS GARBAGE OR remove their names from this type of subpar equipment as soon as possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small and Uncomfortable We bought 3 of these while they were on sale for our hunting club. Assembly wasn't bad, took two people about 30mins. However, once in place we sat in them and noticed how small they are. They are more like a man and a half stand rather than a two man stand. The front shooting rail/guard rail does not extend out far enough making climbing into the stand very difficult. The rail isn't high enough to effectively use as a shooting rail. This is the most uncomfortable stand I have ever sat in. The dimensions and/or placement of the seat platform causes the back rail to dig into your back and forces you to sit very upright and vertical making anything longer than a hour sit very uncomfortable with you having to try and readjust every 5 to 10 mins. This is just a small and uncomfortable stand. There are 2 man stands from other manufacturers that go on sale at the same pricepoint as this that are much roomier and more comfortable. Hope this review helps!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If it 'aint broke, why change it??? I have 6 of these stands over two hunting propertys which I purchased over the past few years. I bought another stand just prior to this season so my son could sit with me near a great rub. As I began to put the stand together, I noticed that UNLIKE THE PICTURE ON THE BOX, the metal seat had beed REPLACED with a new MATERIAL seat! I dont know about any other areas, but the squirrels where I hunt eat all seat cushions, plastic knobs and anything not made of metal. I loved these 2 man stands for there size, durability and inexpensive price!!! Needless to say, I was forced to return the stand and never did saw the big buck responsible for that huge rub.
