Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine Review
The Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine is a free-weight system that will target all the major upper body muscle groups.
It’s designed in a way to promote efficient movement and a larger range of motion than can be achieved by doing basic exercises. You can quickly accelerate your strength, and endurance while building muscle mass. It also supports lat pull downs, tricep press downs, seated rows and a number of other strength training exercises.
The 8 inch foam rollers hold you squarely in position while you exercise and it has a comfortable wide grip bar and operates extremely smoothly thanks to Powerline’s patented nylon bushing technology.
Like all of Body Solid’s Powerline equipment this is a solid, well-built piece of equipment that should serve you well for any number of years.
Once assembled the Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine stands 18 inches high, 48 inches long and 25 inches wide and it has a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds.

Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine User Review
I am really pleased with my Powerline PLM 180X. In the few weeks that I’ve owned this machine I can definitely see a difference in my upper body mass.
It’s a good sturdy machine that went together without too much of a fight. I managed to choose the wrong positions for the leg pads and had to take it apart again. That’s my only gripe – you have to guess what’s going to work for you and if it doesn’t then you have to deconstruct it. If you have a partner that wants to use it I hope he or she is exactly the same size as you because once the leg pads are in place you’re not going to want to readjust them.
The machine I really wanted did have a number of additional features but unfortunately I just couldn’t afford them. I’ve been spoiled by using top-of-the-line machines at the gym, but that was another thing I couldn’t afford after I lost my job, gym membership, so that’s why I bought the Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine.
I have no complaints about the way it’s performing so far and it’s well worth the money.
The Powerline PLM180X Lat Machine will be a great addition to your other strength training equipment and is well made and easy to use.
