Perform an effective full-body workout and be in the best shape of your life with the Marcy Pro Deluxe Cage System PM-5108! Build the body of your dreams and stay fit and healthy right in the comfort of your home. The PM-5108 has a maximum user weight of 300 lbs and holds 300 lbs of weight on the bar catch, 100 lbs on the leg developer, and 100 lbs on the sliding weight post.
Made from sturdy oversized 14-gauge powder-coated steel, this PM-5108 all-in-one cage system effectively resists scratches and chipping that may result from heavy use. It’s improved with a guided weight trolley and adjustable contoured foam roller pads for additional comfort during workout sessions.
This Marcy Pro Deluxe Cage System comes equipped with a high pulley lat tower, a low pulley station, and a removable bench for a convenient workout system to perform basic to intense exercise routines. In addition, its cage is also utilized as a squat rack, enabling you to execute leg workouts comfortably.
It comes with a multi-position seat pad that can adjust into three positions: inclined, flat, and decline to give you the advantage of performing chest press exercises. It also comes with an adjustable bar and safety catches suitable for weightlifting for 6- and 7-foot Olympic barbells. Unfortunately, the barbell and weights do not come with the cage system.

PM-5108 Power cage frame
The mainframe of the Marcy Pro Deluxe is oversized 14-gauge steel tubing, featuring a pretty sturdy construction. The included catch bars have a weight capacity of 300 lbs (136 kg). Also, its top pull-up bar has the same 300 lbs (136 kg) capacity. Furthermore, this bar offers a standard grip with rubberized handles.
All the structural frame bars of the cage and the bench come coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The main bars of the cage are black, while the base frame of the bench is light gray. The top pull-up bar and the bar catch elements also have a gray paint finish.
The cage isn’t giant. With all the bars assembled, it is approximately 50.75″ (129 cm) long and 42.25″ (107 cm) wide. Its top bar is approximately 7′ (213 cm) above the floor level so that it won’t fit in a room with a 7′ ceiling. It is advisable to leave at least 5-6 inches of clearance above it to perform pull-ups correctly.
In addition, in considering the bench is approx. 69″ (173 cm) long, you should assign a usage area for this strength cage system of at least 130″ x 100″ (330 x 254 cm).
Considering that the width of the cage is only 42.25″ (107 cm), it is compatible with both 7′ and 6′ barbells. A barbell does not come with the cage, though; you will either have to use your own or purchase one separately along with corresponding weight plates.
The two main upright pillars of the cage incline slightly towards the rear of the cage. This provides extra sturdiness to the power cage, but it also offers a bit of extra front-to-back room inside it. Also, each pillar has eight height positions for the catch bars.
The base bars of the power cage do not have any adjustable stabilizers or rubber pads. Therefore, it is advisable to place the cage system on a rubber mat to prevent floor damage.
Also, the base bars do not have any pre-drilled holes for anchoring the cage to the floor. However, it is pretty heavy and sturdy, so anchoring it to the floor shouldn’t be necessary.
Lat attachment and accessories
The Marcy Pro Deluxe cage system PM-5108 integrates a lat machine. However, it does not have its weight stack. Instead, its weight carriage can use either Standard (1″) or Olympic (2″) weight plates. Its pegs are 1″ in diameter, but the cage includes 2″ Olympic adapters for them, as well as a spring collar to secure the weight plate in place.
The weight carriage of the lat machine attaches to the backbone bar of the cage. It slides on it in approximately—70″, providing plenty of motion range. In addition, the pulleys are durable nylon material and integrate ball bearings for a smoother motion.
The cables are steel-made, rated for a 2,000 lbs capacity, so there shouldn’t be any problem if you put the maximum load on the carriage.
Although the specified weight capacity for the lat machine is 100 lbs (45 kg), users have reported having loaded it with up to 150 lbs (68 kg) with no problem. Also, its weight ratio is 1:1. In other words, if you load it with 50 lbs (22.6 kg), you will benefit from 50 lbs (22.6 kg) of weight resistance.
Several accessories are included with the PM-5108 for the lat machine. For example, I count the lat bar, the short row bar, two extension chains, a D-handle, and an ankle cuff.
PM-5108 Bench and leg developer
The Marcy Pro Deluxe cage system PM-5108 includes a pretty standard bench. It features an adjustable backrest with three positions for incline, horizontal, and decline exercises. Unfortunately, the seat section is not adjustable. It doesn’t tilt, nor can you adjust its height.
The base frame of the bench is steel tubing, similar to the rest of the cage. Therefore, the maximum user weight capacity for it is 300 lbs (136 kg), to which you can add a total of 300 lbs (136 kg) for the catch bars.
In addition, the bench is fairly large. It is approximately 68.25″L x 25.75″W (173L x 65W). Due to its steel structure, it is also pretty heavy, so it provides excellent stability. But on the other hand, it does not have any transport wheels, so removing it from the cage if, for example, you want to do squats may require a bit of effort.
The seat and the backrest integrate 2″ of foam padding for optimal comfort. The upholstery is a durable vinyl material that is also sweatproof and easy to maintain.
The bench comes equipped with a leg developer. This attachment features three 4″ (10 cm) foam rollers for improved comfort during leg extensions. In addition, it has a peg that holds weight plates up to 100 lbs (45 kg).
Just like the lat machine, the peg of the leg developer is 1″ in diameter, suitable for Standard weight plates, but a 2″ plastic adapter comes with it if you have Olympic weight plates.
It is important to note that neither the bench nor the cage has knee stoppers for lat pulldowns. Therefore, if you want to perform lat pulldowns with extra-heavy loads, it may be difficult to remain seated; you may lift yourself rather than pull all the weight down.

PM-5108 Assembly and Maintenance
Both the cage and the bench require complete assembly. They come in several boxes, and putting them together may take more than three hours. Unfortunately, the tools needed for assembling do not come with the machine. Therefore, you will need one adjustable wrench, Allen wrenches, and a rubber mallet.
Once assembled, its maintenance doesn’t require much. However, its pulleys and the lat machine carriage may require a bit of lubrication from time to time. It is also advisable to periodically check the machine for loose bolts and parts and retighten as needed.
