Rated 5 out of 5 by Hobo27 Good value & easy to assemble
Very easy to assemble.... The instructions were not even necessary for assembly.... It takes about an hour for one person to put together but at least two people to place in the upright in position...
As high as this stand is I recommend using guy wires to secure anchor points for safety and stability...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Peterpauper Heavy, ackward, hard to assemble
Purchased this with my son. Very hard to assemble as instructions are hard to follow. Each part should be clearly marked to make assembly easier. In some cases because of the difference in length, specifically the X supports, would suggest that the parts be marked where and the direction that they should be attached. As it is, parts are not even marked for identity. The stand will take two minimum to stand up. Three would be better. It is also so awkward to move, that it should be assembled where it will be used and left in place. Did see some signs of rusting right out of the box but I suspect that a little rust paint will cure that.
If you are not at all mechanically orientated, don't buy this.
The product does seem like a good value. Steel seems good and heavy and did not bend easily during assembly. I couldn't build one for this money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NOSTRODAMAS BIRDS EYE VIEW
I PURCHASED THIS STAND IN 2011. IT TOOK TWO PEOPLE TO PUT IT TOGETHER AND LIFT IT UP. I RECOMEND A COME-A-LONG OR A WENCH OF SOME KIND TO RAISE IT. THIS TRIPOD PUTS YOU UP WHERE THE BIRDS ARE. THE FIRST TIME I WENT TO SIT IN IT THOUGH IT HAD BLOWN OVER UP AGAINST A TREE. LUCKLY I WAS ABLE TO STAND IT UP STRAIGHTBY MYSELF. THE SECOND TIME IT HAD BLOWN OVER AGAIN. THE STAKES FOR THE LEGS WERE TO SMALL SO I TIED IT DOWN WITH A CABLE FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE PLATFORM DOWN TO A TRAILER TIE-DOWN. IT HASN'T BLOWN OVER SINCE. THERE ARE A FEW RUST SPOTS NOW SHOWING. JUST SPRAYED WITH RUSTOLUM PAINT THIS YEAR. I COULDN'T BUILD ONE FOR THE PRICE THAT I PAID. JUST A FEW MODIFICATIONS THAT I WOULD RECOMMEND. CABLE TIE DOWNS WITH AN ANCHOR AND RUST GUARD PAINT FOR ALL THE BOLTS AND WELDED JOINTS AND SLIP JOINTS. ALSO A CAMO SKIRT AND A CANOPY WOULD BE A NICE OPTION

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris36695 Tends to get blown over in high winds
I bought this stand prior to the last hunting season and only sat in it once before it was blown over. Prior to this season, i had 2 friends help me get the stand up and move it. This evening, I just walked a long ways only to find it laying on the ground again. The stakes that come with stand are useless and so is a 20 tri-pod always laying on its side.
