Barbarian Smith Machine Half Rack


There is no other piece of gym equipment that divides opinion like the old Smith Machine. You either love it or hate it. No wonder though, as there are so many theories on how they cause injuries. However I have yet to have someone tell me they were injured by a smith machine. On the other hand, I know plenty of blokes who have torn pecs from barbell bench pressing.

Warranty The warranty terms and conditions for the Barbarian Line are intended for commercial use. 10 year warranty on frame excluding surface finish. 1 year on parts, cables and pulleys. 90 days on grips, pads and upholstery. Please note that some commercial equipment being sold by our competitors are only covered by domestic warranties. If you are using the Barbarian equipment in your home gym, and you have a manufacturing issue or defect with your grips, pads, upholstery outside the warranty terms we will review your issue. But please refer to my first point above about the best warranties are ones that are not used. Barbarian is designed by Germans for German commercial use. So it is over engineered for domestic use.

Smith machine half rack

Hardcore Free Weight Training

Firstly the Smith Machine lifting bar features linear bearings and hardened 30mm steel guide rails. This set up has a load capacity of 250kgs. It is smooth to use, even under heavy loads. If you are shopping around and comparing with other so called commercial machines check out the thickness of their guide rails. You will find most are only 25mm. These thinner shafts will have much greater flex than 30mm ones. Here is Lee Priest moving 3 plates a side - the machine has no movement at all.

What really sets this Smith Machine apart from the competition is that offers genuine half rack functionality - you can do some serious free weight training on this unit. By serious we mean up to 250kgs! The gun racks give you plenty of flexibility when starting your lifts. The spotter bars will give you the confidence to tackle those last reps!

So if you are still tossing up between a smith machine and power rack, the Barbarian Smith Machine Half Rack will save you agonising over the decision. This beast of a machine gives you both options, without sacrificing the function of either style of training.

On similar Smith Machine Half Rack combos, the lifting bar gets in the way when doing barbell work. You either bang your head or your shins! The Barbarian Smith Machine is cleverly designed so that the lifting bar can be anchored well out of the way. There is 192cm of clearance under there!

To further enhance your free weight training experience the half rack also offers provision for band pegs for lifting with resistance bands. In this picture you will also see there are three pairs of weight horns to store your weight plates.

The multi grip chin up bar is yet another great feature on this unit. But if you really want you can add the optional lat pulldown attachment.

IMPORTANT! - Just because a smith machine claims to be commercial and can load 500kgs does it mean it can handle serious training. Read about Barbarian Weight Load Capacities and why these machines can back up their claims.

Note: The Smith Machine Half Rack comes with Olympic sleeves for Olympic weight plates. They slide over 30mm steel horns. If you intend on using standard weight plates, the internal hole needs to be 31+mm.
