I don’t use the scaffold as a platform to stand on and work from. I use it to carry a bundle of woodworking machines that I can then use at my work level. It also has let me create spacious load- bearing platforms for storing tools, jigs, supplies of all kinds, raw materials, work in process and a big bunch of books and magazines.
(I notched 2x3” studs near their ends and laid them over two sets of the supporting horizontal bars, four 2x3s to each set of bars, with spacers between them to keep the 2x3s in position, then covered them with ¼” hardboard to provide east-to-reach storage space. The height-extending tubes at the top of the scaffold bump against some shelving I have hanging from the ceiling, so I cut them off.)
The scaffold has excellent maneuverability. Those 5-inch wheels do the job for me. (I’m 81 and not as handy at pushing and shoving as I used to be, especially now that I have the unit all loaded up.)
I’m a big fan of using powerful little magnets to hang small tools from, and the sides of this steel scaffold are tool-magnet heaven. And those lovely half-inch holes that regulate the main platform’s height are perfect for inserting bolts or dowels to hang tools from, and the rungs running front to back let me turn the scaffold into the Clamp Central that every woodworker needs.
In case anyone needs to know, I was able to put the scaffold together without any assistance, although I have to admit that the main platform was a heavy baby. The instruction sheet was useful but not as good as it could be, but the assembly job was not very complicated.
All in all, I’m very satisfied with my big and heavy but still nicely maneuverable rolling workplace/storehouse.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigDaddyDIY perfect with a mod or 2
This is great value for the price. However, to the DIYer it is wobbly. To fix that, I cut 2 6 foot 2x4's and notched the ends out to stablize the legs while on the top platform. Also a ratchet strap helps keep it all together. I works fine with out the add ons, but i am afraid of heights and weigh 285lbs. The platform creeked a bit when I first got on it. Due to my weight, but it held up great. We also made a handrail out of schedule 40 PVC which cam in very handy while painting our 14 foot ceilings. Get it. you won't regret it. Mine is now in the garage doubling as a work bench!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WVTeacher A Good Purchase
Purchased this to stain my house.....too old and too scared to try to do it again with a ladder. Scaffold worked well ! Although I was doubtful, it was able to be assembled by one person.( But 2 would certainly be better) Put the wheels on first, laying it on its side...and the side bars too. Then hoist it up and over to standing position. The platform is heavy, but by using a step ladder to rest it on you can put it in place by yourself . It is surprisingly sturdy, not much wobbling feeling...I have it at the five foot level..don't know how it would seem at 6 feet. Wheel locks hold in place well, I used some leftover rubber paving stones to set under wheels to level when needed. All in all a good purchase!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by duckweed Not sure how I lived without this
I'm framing a house and I live on this scaffold. I bought two and I constantly roll myself around on them to access the job on my own "second floor". These are so handy. I attached all the hurricane trusses for a whole house rolling myself along the walls comfortably seated in one spot with all my tools handy. You probably shouldn't do this but I put a ladder on top to add blocking between trusses. I can't believe how many jobs I've done without them.
The deck seems a little thin but it's held up just fine. The wheels roll great on concrete and lock easily. They are a little jiggly but totally adequate. I haven't stacked them but probably wouldn't do it without some bracing or the outriggers.

I was impressed with the heavy weight design and makeup. It was easy to assemble and will be simple to breakdown to store. Expect it will be a long lived piece of equipment.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Artcat Very pleased
My husband and I bought this scaffold primarily for me to use when I paint large murals, although we will use it for projects around the house as well. I am an artist, and although I usually paint oil on canvas, I often paint murals and this scaffold helps me to safely and easily reach the higher areas. The scaffold assembles very easily and is easy to maneuver. I feel it requires two people to assemble, but it assembles in just a few minutes. My husband and I were impressed with how solid and sturdy the scaffold is, and I feel very secure standing on the scaffold and painting.

I haven't used the units stacked yet, but they seem reasonably constructed and should do the job as a stable platform 16' above the floors.

The product is true to its description. I recommend that if you're going to use it at its highest level that you also use the available outriggers. I found they added an additional level of safety and comfort. The scaffolding can be assembled by a single person, however a helper makes it very easy.
