My Bigget complaint is that the instructions were good until the cross supports have to go on. These parts were not numbered and therefore there was many configurations to putting them together. We spent 2 hours putting the entire thing together and then an additional 2 hours trying to figure out how to put the cross supports on to the ladder and the other two legs. You would think that this would be pretty easy BUT when the poles and the place where they are supposed to be attached are not numbered or lettered, it was crazy. The instructions indicate the part are numbered but that was not the case. Three of us worked on it and finally got it together. Good thing we did this at the house. No way you could put this together in the field. Other then that it is a great stand and bery sturdy. Something that cost this much should have been much better numbered for assembly.

No better stand on the market than this one...not a snap to assemble but worth the effort.

First tower purchase
I took my time and from counting of parts (including bolts and nuts) it took me 3 hours to assemble it. It takes 2 people to stand it up.
I found it quiet when climbing up.
I stand 6'1" and weigh 254 lbs. For a person my size I have a real hard time to stand up and stretch, due to the seat being in the way.
If you can handle sitting all day, then great, but I have to stand up and move, this stand does not have enough room for that. I found this important for me.
API should make this stand and the 20' stand with a flip up seat for more room.
I have thought about taking seat off and putting a smaller seat to sit on so I can stand and move.
I have made longer stakes to hold the tower down for safety.
The ladder feet should be futher apart for stability.
They could make a bigger platform to accomodate larger people.
