Hammer Strength FWADJ Bench

I have been keeping my eye out for a commercial grade adjustable bench.  I was hoping to come across a reasonably priced Power Lift, but this beauty from Hammer Strength fits the bill.

The pictures do not do it justice.  It appears to have 6 settings from 10 degree decline to 75 degree incline and the foot plate is a real bonus in aesthetics and functionality.

My goal would be to use it as a dumbbell bench.

The price tag of $150 obo is half of what they have been listed for on line. Currently there is a model that is on Ebay for $750 with 10 people watching.  That seems ridiculous, but $100 to $250 is a good range for commercial grade benches.

Only downside is that this beast weight in at 100 pounds.

Johnny Belknap was a nice seller.  The bench was saved from a high school that was getting rid of gym equipment.  It was in good shape with no rust, but there is a slight tear in the upholstery.  Considering that, I offered $120 and he countered at $130 which I felt comfortable paying.  I could have it repaired or reupholstered for less than $100.
