So, bought this in June....didn't use until October. Average guy who HATES going up high. Had some roof & fascia work on a small shed that required using a ladder to access. Thought this would be much better, and yes it is. However, not being used to scaffolding, found it a bit 'shaky' to use, albeit it is 'shaky-secure'----in other words, it's not going to fall apart on you when standing on it.
Climbing up the side as per instructions is not the most secure feeling in the world. It feels like it will tip over and yes, as per instructions, you need to keep your body close. So, to avoid that, I used a ladder to give another footing, lol. I felt better and that's what counts.
The platform comes with 2 drilled holes that is suppose fit onto 2 metal dowels to keep in place. Mine did not line up. No way to bring this back (too awkward anyways), & I had to use it, so I threw it up and let it sit on top of one dowel, which of course, ending up splitting that hole.
2 spring clamps are use to secure the platform so it does not tip when standing on either end. One of the welded clamp holders was welded on crooked & I had to smack that clamp open with a hammer. It worked ok after.
It's easy to assemble, a bit cumbersome, depends how co-ordinated you are I guess, lol.
It does beat standing on a ladder for extended periods to work on something high. It is great for that, but the shaky feeling & minor lack of quality control gets me subtracting 2 stars. It's ok, it works, & I recommend this....especially at only a couple hundred bucks. I know, could have 'rented' one. But then I gotta lug it back & forth, puts 'pressure' on me to get the job done in one day, & so the convenience of having this plus it's there when needed & it stores nicely in my shed is worth the price...shakiness & bad holes aside.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by matt Unstable and wobbly at height
Ok product. I run a small masonry business and recently purchased this scaffolding for indoor jobs and other small jobs. After using he product for about two weeks I have mixed feelings about it. Pros: easy to set up/tear down, good for indoor jobs under 10 ft in height, rolls around so you can move it. Cons: Very wobbly and unstable when the platform is set more than about 4 ft up, difficult to change platform height once set up.
Even for scaffolding this small cross braces would go a long way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cal Nice to work off a platform rather than a ladder
I really like being able to work off a platform rather than a ladder. I'd like to buy another to stack on top but I'll have to resolve the "play" in this one first to eliminate a little bit of wobble...plus...I'll need to get outriggers.
Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase.

For $200 it sure beats the heck of climbing up and down a ladder.

The scaffold is a bit wobbly but still solid. I guess if the wobble bothered someone, they could replace the adjusting pins with bolts tightened. Then it would be as solid as a rock, but adjusting the height would be bothersome. Having a fear of heights myself, I found no problem with the wobble. It is fairly light in weight which is good for assembly and moving. The wheels are nice and big and the locks not only lock the wheels from rolling but keep them from pivoting. It sure beat, go up the ladder, then down, move the ladder 2ft and back up the ladder and down, move etc. I wish I had one of these years ago.
