Very nice universal machine, free weights, and some dumb bells.

Curl bar and one or two of those dumb bells you can adjust are important IMO. Can do some different things with both to work different muscles. I'm not expert, but like to stretch out muscles and such on the cheap. To me those two are vital, and then of course a good bench.

My '03 Sold.

I will sell it for a bit more than that one(probably $500 for everything).
It was around $1,800-$2,000 brand new.
It will come with quite a bit more equipment/weight/a mat/a bunch of different grip bars as well.
I just need to quit bsing and take some pics of it!

Would it all fit in a 10x10 room? I've got this weird extra room/den that I need to fill stuff into.

Yes, it will fit.
I should be able to take some pictures this weekend and post them up.
It's not that hard to break it down and re-assemble either.

Sorry about the crappy pics, but I took them before I had to come into work this morning.

The machine sells for $1,500 or so, without any options or any weight.
So I feel $500 is a great deal for someone, considering I have quite a bit more into this.

I have about 350-400lbs in plates, dumb bells from 15lbs-65lbs, curl bar, 45lb straight bar, rope, lat pull bar with hand grips, close grip bar, V- tricep bar, a couple of nice mats, a plate holder, and so on...

Basically, everything one would need or want.
You can do dips, pull ups, preacher curls, incline, flat, low row, lat pulls, smith machine, squats, legs and so on...

The thing that I really like about the machine is the optional 200lb stack(this in turn keeps you from having to pile on plate after plate and removing them afterwards).

The machine is made by Yukon and has a lifetime warranty.

Size: 82" high x 67" deep x 48" wide

Weight Rack Capacity: 800 pounds

Rack Adjustment Points: 24 front rack points with quick change adjustment.

Smith Machine Rack Points: 14 position for safety, easy liftoff, and racking of smith carriage.

Resistance: Optional 200 pound selectorized stack, Olympic weights and Olympic bar sold separately.

Frame Material & Finish: 2" x 2" 12 Gauge Steel with electrostatic powder coated paint to resist chips and scratches.

Cables & Pulleys (lat machine): Nylon coated 2000 Lb. aircraft cable and Nylatron pulleys with sealed bearings.

Targeted Muscle Groups: Arms, Chest, Shoulders, Back, Abdominals, Legs

Included Accessories: Low Row Foot Plate, Built-in Pull Up Bar, Dual Spotter Arms and Safety Rail Arms.

Smith Machine and Rack (standard): 85" high x 68" deep x 86" wide smith machine rack with built in pull-up bar, and 800 pound weight capacity.

Adjustable Flat-Incline-Decline Weight Bench (standard): Olympic style adjustable flat-incline-decline weight bench for add versatility.

Lat Attachment (standard): Plate loaded gym system lat attachment for developing a strong powerful back.

OPTIONS

Dip Station (optional): Adjustable Dip Station for chest and tricep work (attaches to rack leg base).

I also have the stack, as previously mentioned, and it does have the butterfly attachment, but it will need a spot welded on it(that I will throw in for free).

Hoist or Tuff Stuff would be the route to go if you decide to get new home gym equipment
