Niightmare to assemble, don't count on expert assembly
Reviewed in the United States on August 22, 2019
It took 7 and a half hours, with me and my skilled carpenter/mechanic son-in-law to put this together. Plus a third adult to help lift and hold it (horizontally) when parts needed to be attached, many of which did not line up as they were supposed to. And when you insert one section of the pipe into the other, you'd better make sure the holes for the bolts are lined up perfectly, because once pushed together you can't pull them apart. At that point (they weren't lined up, or else they were drilled wrong) my son-in-law had to drill through the steel pipe to create a new hole. Then when trying to attach the handle and pneumatic tube and pole together, in addition to needing at least three people, all the holes lined up but one -- it was off by a fraction of an inch. After unsuccessfully trying to muscle the sections in place, out came the drill again to drill through the rubber to allow the bolt to go through.. Do you have a drill with the proper bits? You also need a socket wrench kit, wrench, rubber mallet, lot's of muscle power to make things line up to slip in various connectors. Instructions (48 pages), though step by step, are in dire need of additional pointers to make sure you don't make common errors, and better diagrams of the hard to comprehend pieces that get put together. And, very important - if you are planning on paying the $100 or so for "expert assembly" like I was, don't count on it. We had the box, but the amazon expert assembly people could not find anyone who would do it. An that's over a two week period, with three calls to amazon. What you should do, is buy the expert assembly first (you then get to choose three days and hours as options), pick times a week out, and when (and IF) they confirm it, THEN buy the unit -- it came very quickly. Otherwise, I'd say buy another of the two main competitors; I would if I had to do it again.
