I received this swing as a gift 2Christmases ago. Within 6 months it began to rust, so I thoroughly sprayed it with a NAME BRAND product made to prevent rusting. It continued to rust. I continued to spray. It has now rusted all the way through the seat and can no longer be used. My daughters spent their hard earned money on a piece of junk.
My husband and I bought this swing for my mother-in-law for Mother's day/Birthday. She wanted a swing for her front porch. She lives in a HUGE house - in an EXTREMELY nice neighborhood. She was almost in tears when she saw it and was even more teary-eyed and happy when we hung it up. It was easy to put up (although we did have to buy hooks and extra chain because she has an extra high ceiling) and so comfortable to sit in. We thought we would have to get a cusion for it but we didn't. My mother-in-law has gotten numerous compliments from her neighbors and everyone keeps asking where she got it. She and my father-in-law sit out there every morning and evening just swinging and drinking their coffee. This was a GREAT buy!!!
I purchased one of these for my front tree and was so pleased with it that I purchased two additional for the back yard. My husband was especially pleased with the quality and comfort. It was easy to put together and I especially like the soft edges of the seat and arm rests. Overall, this is a great swing and will surely outlast my wood one ten to one!
Durable and sturdy swing for a decent price. We hung ours from a tree branch and used plastic protectors along the chain to not harm the tree. I am certain the iron will withstand the elements for a long time, the coating is quite thick. Even without cushions the bench is comfortable and swings smoothly and quietly. I'm not sure how hot it will get in summer but we plan to have cushions made for it.
I have a victorian Home and I have been looking for the right swing for the front porch and I found it. The Tropico Swing and the other accessories are so easy to put together that I did it all by my self. The finish is so smooth and easy to take care of. I am so happy with my purchases. Thank you Overstock.com
Everything about this Swing is 110% My husband is a Sheet metal contractor and He says its 110% of Great Workmanship and Construction. The finish is smooth and was worth more than we Paid. Our Grandaughter lines up all her dolls and she is busy for hours!. We hung it from Huge Old Oak Tree. With 30 extra feet of chain it is the best Tree Swing ever.It will be there for Years and Years! Oh we had is Powdered Coated White to match the trim on the Barn and our white Gates and Fences.Even with the extra $65.00 we paid for that it is still worth more than we Paid. WE LOVE IT! Especially about 5:00 with a Cocktail!
I assembled the swing in about 15 minutes. It looks to be well crafted and very sturdy. The only downside was that we had to buy 18" of additional chain to reach the ceiling hooks - but maybe we just have a tall porch! Very comfortable even without cushions. Four stars on durability because we've only had it a short time. A winner in every way.
I have 3 of these swings. I originally bought one a couple of years ago and really liked it. When I built a second home, I added two new ones to the front and back porch. All swings are in a covered area which is best for this product. It is not aluminum. It is a heavy duty steel swing which can easily be spray painted if the paint dulls. This has not become necessary, but I will probably do so in the distant future.
I purchased two of these swings for my upper and lower patios. They assembled fairly easy, however, we did have to bend the metal in a few places to make the screws go in correctly. It only took a few minutes to assemble them. We had to purchase an additional 12 feet of chain because our ceilings are high. The swings are very comfortable even without cushions. I would definitely recommend this product.
This swing arrived faster than anticipated. All the pieces were covered with protective plastic from the box. All screws and necessary items for assembly were located in a little plastic pouch. It has large hooks at the top of the chain to hang the swing by. The chain holding the swing remains covered with thick plastic to protect your fingers. It's a little heavy when assembled but nothing I couldn't manage by myself. It's really pretty on the porch and I'm still smiling.

Love the swing. Nice and sturdy but yet easy enough to move. Have had it about 9 months and it still looks the same. Would definately recommend to anyone needing a nice swing.

The swing arrived within a few days and was exactly as Overstock advertised it. It arrived in excellent condition and took less than 10 minutes to assemble. Although I ordered the bench cushion to go with it, the swing is quite comfortable without it. Looks great!!
