It is what it is. The classic A-Frame plate tree that has been accommodating 2" Olympic plates for over 60 years. York practically invented the barbell, so they definitely know how to make a bulletproof plate rack.
I have about 600lbs of iron plates on this tree and it holds up great. I wanted a plate tree on a budget that would not take up to much space in my garage. If I were storing bumpers I would upgrade to the rogue vertical or horizontal plate storage, but for iron plates you can't beat this rack at the price. Plus its made in the USA and the color matches my R3.

York Olympic A-Frame Plate Tree
Not so Good
Review by Don
This does not sit flush with the floor unless there is weight loaded. You can tell by looking at the spots that have been welded together it is not at the level of quality as the equipment produced by Rogue. Also, and this is my fault, but this is made for older iron plates that are of different sizes. If you store bumper plates you cannot use all of the pegs because of the increased plate diameters. All in all this does the job but I wish I would have spent the extra $100 and gotten the Rogue storage tree.
