The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-XF9925 is a pretty standard power cage, similar in construction to the HulkFit 1000 lbs model. However, it lacks the dip attachments, but on the other hand, it comes with plate storage pegs and has resistance band pegs on its base bar. Plus, its chinning bar assembly is adjustable.

Key Features and Specifications

  • Assembled dimensions: 50.4L x 65.1W x 82.9H inches (128L x 165W x 211H cm)
  • Assembled weight: 134.5 lbs (61 kg)
  • Max. weight capacity: 1,000 lbs (453.5 kg)
  • Possible exercises: 25+

Frame construction

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-XF9925 power rack features a heavy-duty frame made of 14-gauge, 2″ x 2″ steel tubing. All bars in its construction are coated with a durable, corrosion-resistant, and chip-resistant paint finish. The base bars and the upright pillars of the unit are black in color, while the chinning bar assembly, the safety bars, and the j-hooks are painted red. These are the only colors available for this Power Zone cage, at least for the moment.

The cage is not extremely large but it’s not exactly the best fit for 6-foot barbells. It’s basically meant for use only with 7-foot bars. With all the parts assembled, it is approx. 50.4″ (128 cm) deep, and 65.1″ (165 cm) wide (with the storage pegs attached). It is pretty spacious inside. The front-to-back distance between the two upright pillars of the cage is 24″ (61 cm), while the inner width (left-to-right) is approx. 42″ (106.6 cm). The width of the rack itself, without considering the weight storage pegs, or the elastic band pegs, is ~46″ (116 cm).

The height of the rack with the chinning bar assembly attached to the highest position is approx. 83″ (210 cm). This being said, the unit should fit in a room with a 7-foot (214 cm) ceiling. However, it would be a very tight fit and you won’t get any clearance above it, so you will not be able to execute all the chin-up and pull-up exercises correctly. Therefore, it is recommended to place and use this power rack in a room with at least an 8-foot ceiling height (244 cm).

The four upright bars of the cage feature 18 holes for the attachment of the safety bars and j-hooks. It’s important to mention, though, that these holes are only 3/4″ (1.9 cm) in diameter, not 1″ (2.5 cm) standard. Therefore, you cannot use standard attachments for them, and for the moment, Sunny Health & Fitness does not offer extra attachments for this power rack, such as dip bars.

The Sunny SF-XF9925 power cage is rated for a maximum weight of 1,000 lbs (453.5 kg) which is not bad for a cage made for home use. This also applies to the safety bars and j-hooks.

The base bars of the cage feature anchor points (two on each side) so you can secure it to the floor if you want. However, the cage itself is pretty heavy – approx. 134.5 lbs (61 kg) – and you can add weight plates on its storage pegs for extra stability. This being said, anchoring the cage to the floor shouldn’t be necessary.

Other parts and accessories

First of all, just like any other power cage, the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-XF9925 Power Zone model comes with a set of safety bars and a set of j-hooks. These are rated for a maximum weight limit of 1,000 lbs (453.5 kg). They have a thick layer of rubber on their upper section to prevent paint chipping and reduce noise when you place the barbell on them. As we’ve mentioned above, their attachment pins are only 3/4″ (1.9 cm) so, standard models with 1″ pins won’t fit on this cage.

The chinning bar attachment features a multi-grip design. It offers the possibility to adopt a close grip, a close parallel grip, and several wide grips. It has 4 adjustment positions with the highest at approx. 83″ (116 cm) above floor level. This being said, the rack is recommended for users up to 6’4″ (193 cm). There is no specific weight limit mentioned for the chinning bar attachment. Therefore, you should be able to perform weighted pull-ups and chin-ups with no problem.

The base bars of the cage feature several holes for attaching resistance band pins. Six pins are included with the cage. Their heads are flattened to prevent the resistance bands from slipping off.

The cage also includes a set of weight plate storage pegs. They are 2″ (5 cm) in diameter, so they can only hold Olympic (2″) weight plates. They come with safety springs to keep the plates secure. They are approx. 6.5″ (16.5 cm) long.

Of course, by adding a bench to the rack, you can also perform bench presses. However, a bench is not included with the Power Zone cage.

Assembly and Maintenance

The Sunny Health & Fitness Power Zone power rack requires complete user assembly. However, the task is pretty straightforward and shouldn’t take more than one hour. Basically, you will have to put together the base first, add the four upright bars, close the rack with the top bars and the pull-up attachment, and finally add the rest of the attachments. A set of two 16/18 fixed wrenches is included with the rack.

Once this power cage is fully assembled, maintenance doesn’t require much. It is recommended to wipe the sweat that may fall onto the frame at the end of the workout. It is also recommended to periodically check for loose bolts and parts.
