The FR 810XLT Super Max Power Cage by Fitness Reality is for those looking for any workout to build and tone muscles, including heavy lifting. It is constructed with a tubular frame from 2″ x 2″ sturdy steel, making it heavy-duty and durable. The chrome plating gives it extra toughness as well.
There is abundant space for walking in to maneuver through various side exercises. The walk-in area is 50.5″ in length, 46.5″ in width, and 83.5″ in height. The total weight of the machine is 133.5 pounds when fully assembled. With the size of the FR 810XLT, there is a need for quite a bit of space to store it.
Safety should be at the top of the priority list when purchasing a power cage. You will be doing it alone when working out in your home gym. There will be no one there to help you if something goes wrong. With this in mind, it has two 3.25 inches long chrome lock-on safety bars and two 23 inches-long chrome dual-mounted safety bars; everything stays in place.
Along with completing heavy lifting workouts, grip bars for pull-ups are available so that back muscles, shoulders, and arms can get the work you want to strengthen those areas. Additionally, two stability bars are for the back of the FR 810XLT machine, which boosts this gym equipment’s stability factor.

810XLT Frame Construction
The FR 810XLT power cage features a heavy-duty frame made of 2″ x 2″ tubular steel. In addition, all the steel parts in its construction come powder coated with a corrosion-resistant finish.
The upright bars are gray, while the base bars, the top chinning bars, and the rear stabilizer bars are black. Furthermore, the vertical guide bar of the lat machine and the safety bars have a chrome finish.
The fully assembled cage with the lat machine attached is fairly large. It has a footprint of approx. 68″L x 46.5″W (173 x 118 cm), while its height exceeds 7′ (213 cm). Therefore, you will need an area of at least 100″ x 100″ (254 x 254 cm) for it and a ceiling height of at least eight feet (244 cm).
The FR 810XLT power cage is not extremely heavy, weighing more than 150 lbs (68 kg) without an attached barbell or weight plates.
Therefore, it offers excellent stability and doesn’t need anchoring to the floor. Its base doesn’t have pre-drilled holes for this purpose. They rest on ABS pads for floor protection, but it is advisable to assemble and use the unit on a rubberized mat.
The cage upright bars have 19 attachment positions for the safety bars or the dip bars; if you opt for them, they do not come with the cage. However, two 23″ (58.4 cm) safety bars and two every three 1/4″ (8.2 cm) catch bars come with the cage. Specifically, they all have a chrome finish and have maximum weight loads of up to 800 lbs (362.8 kg).
Furthermore, the cage does include the knee stopper attachment, which features two extra-thick foam rollers for superior comfort.
The included Fitness Reality 710 lat attachment comes with seven heavy-duty pulleys that integrate ball bearings for smooth movement and a long lifespan. The cable’s exact tensile strength is not specified, but a steel cable with a nylon coating withstands much more than the lat machine’s maximum load.
The FR 810XLT power cage and lat attachment system include a short bar for low rows, a curved bar for lat pulldowns, a short extension chain, and two spring clips for the lat attachment pegs.
810XLT Optional Accessories
A bench does not come with the FR 810XLT power cage, but you can opt for the FR 1000 bench.
Also, the FR 2819 Attachment Set for the 810XLT Power Cage consists of the following:
- Set of 2 – 9″ long extended weight plate holder shaft;
- Landmine attachment with 360-degree rotation fits 1″ Standard and 2″ Olympic Bars;
- Set of 2 – J hooks- triangular support design for added strength;
- Set 2 – Dip bars- patent-pending multi-grip dip, pull-up, and push-up handles.
For your convenience, I also include a link for a 7′ Olympic Bar and 255 lb set of TEXAS STAR rubber-coated Olympic weights: (2) 45 lb, (2) 35 lb, (2) 25 lb, (2) 10 lb, (4) 5 lb, and (2) 2.5 lb plates. Barbell Collars (Pair) – Locking 2″ Olympic Size Weight Clamps – Quick Release Collar Clips.
The FR 810XLT power cage with lat attachment offers four main workout stations. These are:
Power cage. Like any other power cage, the 810XLT allows you to perform squats, curls, shrugs, or other exercises safely using a heavy barbell. However, a barbell and weight plates do not come with the cage.
Pull-up and chinning station. This workout station consists of two curved parallel bars attached to the top of the cage. They have a multi-grip design, offering the possibility to perform all types of pull-up and chin-up exercises. However, the weight capacity is not (specified) for these top bars, which means that you should be able to perform any weighted pull-ups or chin-ups without any issues.
High-pulley station. It’s the primary workout station for the lat machine. For this purpose offers the possibility to perform lat pulldowns, tricep press-downs, and many other high-pulley cable exercises. As I’ve’ mentioned above, a standard 39″ (96.5 cm) lat bar comes with the cage. In addition, it has rubberized curved grips for optimal comfort.
Low-pulley station. The unit’s low pulley allows the execution of seated rows, stand-up curls, or other low-pulley exercises. A short bar with rubberized handles comes with this workout station.
810XLT Weight Resistance System
Unfortunately, the FR 810XLT power cage with a lat attachment does not include a barbell and weight plates. Therefore, the lat attachment does not have a weight stack, but two Standard pegs (1″ in diameter) can hold dumbbell or barbell weight plates. Each peg of the lat machine moving element measures 6.5″ (16.5 cm), so it can have at least a few plates.
The lat machine does not include Olympic sleeve adapters for 2″ plates, but you can set and load the lat machine with Olympic plates. Also, a collection of 1″ springs for fixing Standard plates comes with the cage.
The lat machine’s moving element has a maximum weight capacity of 270 lbs (122.4 kg). However, the exact weight ratio provided by the lat machine is not specified.
- Wide grip pull-ups
- Muscle pull-ups
- Behind head pull-ups

Of course, some of these exercises require extra accessories. For example, chest presses call for a bench, while dip exercises need dip handle attachments, which do not come with the cage. But, of course, if you don’t opt for the bench for lat pulldowns, you can always use a chair.
810XLT Assembly and Maintenance
The machine requires complete assembly. It comes in several boxes, and the process will take at least a few hours. However, the included manuals provide pretty clear assembly instructions, and some of the tools for assembly come with the cage.
Once assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. However, the lat machine moving element’s guide bar may need periodic lubrication to smooth the load. It is also advisable to periodically check the unit for loose bolts and parts and re-tighten them if required.
