Quality on a Budget
This rack by Body Solid is the cheapest power rack we sell. The design is based on the popular Powerline rack, but with a 3-year warranty instead of 10-year, a smooth pull up bar instead of knurled, and lighter 14-gauge steel construction. These differences cut the cost significantly. However, it's still a decent rack for home use, and with Body Solid's branding behind it, you don't have to worry about bad welding or bad engineering like some other cheap racks out there. They confidently give a 500 lb recommend weight limit.
Powder Coat Finish
Powder coating has been proven to be the most durable option for gym equipment. The finish doesn't wear off easily, protects against corrosion, and looks great.
