After purchasing the Ab Doer 360, I put it in use immediately after delivery. I loved the different muscles it engaged and began to develop. Only nine months of use the swivel seats weld to the mainframe broke away making the unit unusable. Thane Direct had no replacement part number to replace the part in question. I'm only 168 lbs, which it is rated up to 300 lbs. They replaced the mainframe under warranty, but it's the seat that's welded to it that broke away. After many emails and phone calls, the issue has been exhausted. There isn't a replacement part available, so my investment was a waste. Really too bad because I sincerely wanted to utilize the machine. If the seat breaks off, the unit is written off.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
