This was shipped in a timely manner and came in great condition. It comes in 2 boxes, each weighing over 50#'s, so the shipping is a deal in itself. The manufacturer sends excellent instructions. They look daunting, don't be intimidated; it's straight forward once you get going. There was just a minor glitch in the technical drawings, but anyone who has drilled a hole or pounded a nail could figure out the correct adjustment. Only took 3.5 hours to put together. Good value!
