Ever bought a work out machine and wish you didn't?

Garage sale had a Marcy 4000 diamond elite for sale. They wanted 300.00, I told them I would not give them a penny over 200.00 and left my number. They called today (was really wishing they wouldn't) and I brought it home. That thing is freaking huge. It will fit in a 10' x 10' room with absolutely nothing else in it. My gun safe is in the way. But I think I can make it work. I have to buy a couple of parts for it.....mainly a couple of adapters (black thingys) that slide over the 1" bar to adapt it to the 2" hole in the weights. Damn curl pad and a couple of the small handles for the cable work out. is missing too.


On a side note, you can hang alot of clothes on this thing. I could probably be talked out of this thing if someone would give me what I gave for it

Why didn't you just tell them you were no longer interested?

You can try to sell it on craigslist for $250.

Looks like the average price is around $600 new, so i'm not sure if you will have any luck.

The supply on the secondary market for that type of item is pretty high - right next to fish tanks.

Look at it this way, if you're ever in need of something to barricade a door with then it's the perfect piece of "insert proper word here" to do it.

I actually wanted a multi station work out machine, just did not realize how much it would fill up my bedroom.(spare bedroom)
