ARCHON Adjustable Dual Pulley Station
The ARCHON Adjustable Dual Pulley Cable Station is a versatile space saver with an abundance of potential cable exercises for both home and commercial users. Unlike similar units that use plastic bushings and hollow metal tubes for carriage systems, the ARCHON Adjustable Dual Pulley Station is constructed of 4 linear “Steel” bearings providing a nonresistant gliding motion you will appreciate up solid steel rods. The mounting also sets this unit apart from competitors. Both the top and the bottom of the cable station mount to your wall. “What does this mean to you?” If you do not have a low mount the cable station can pull away from the wall when conducting low pulley movements with moderate weight over time. This pulling can damage the wall around an upper mount. With our ARCHON Cable Station, you have a high and low mounting that secures the unit allowing for full usage top to bottom. If desired there is even floor mounting available. With 17 vertical positions, and commercial construction, you will be able to maximize your cable workouts for a complete health club experience right in your home or personal training studio.

The ARCHON Fitness exercise equipment is perfect for individuals who are building their gym at home.
We love customers that want to take care of their equipment! As soon as you unpack and assemble, we recommend spraying Teflon based spray on a cloth and wipe down those metal chrome parts. Also, a squirt on top and below the carriage for the steel bearings. Because we are based in Florida, where humidity is high and some of us have our units in our garage, we repeat this process every 2-3 weeks.
Great question! Our pulley stations are very close to 1.1:1. So it takes close to 1.1 pounds of force to pull 1 pound on the carriage or 11 pounds of force to pull 10 pounds on the carriage. Now, important to understand, this depends on the tension of the cords as well as if you are using one handle or two. One handle lifting the weight feels lighter as the carriage is moving a shorter distance vertically, but two handles lift the carriage higher, so the weight feels heavier.
Great question, if you are using one handle then you can pull it outward up to 6 feet. If you are using both handles at the same time, then you can pull it outward up to 3 feet.
No, you cannot. Cable stations must be mounted to either concreate, wood studs, or similar options.
Not on its own. The top backet must be mounted. If you have a base board that interferes that you do not want to notch out, you can mount the unit to the floor and place an appropriate shimmy (The gap between the top mounting and your wall to fill) between the top bracket and the wall for mounting. Additional hardware may be required. We recommend, if going into a concreate floor or wall purchasing Tapcon Concrete Screws from Lowes or Home Depot.

Great machine and great quality the best aditional tool to my armwrestling training personal gym. I can do most all the excercise I do when Im training for armwrestling tournament also use together with my armwrestling table. Great too for work your all body when you no have time to go to the gym. Maybe I recomend its for all my USA TEAM mates and all in the armwrestling sport
RECOMEND ITS 100%
Big fan so far. Especially for the price. Question – what’s the resistance when unloaded – IE with no weight – pulling with both cables? I see you say it’s a 1:1.1, but curious specifically about no weight with both cables.. thx!
I purchased this cable machine to add more variety to my home workouts. I have been very satisfied with it so far. The bearings on the rod mechanism provides for smooth movement. The bearings do add some noise to the exercises but I just turn up the tv while I work out. I use the machine primarily for lat pull downs and face pulls. Cable crossovers are a little awkward with the machine due to the cables being so close together in the center. I was easily able to fit 25lb plates on the machine. One tip I have discovered is to put your heaviest plates on last so you can quickly lower the weight when needed. I picked up a few aftermarket attachments and they worked just fine with this cable machine. I mounted mine to the wall with a 3/4 inch door from an old cabinet behind it. That seems to help protect the wall from any accidental scuffs while working out and adding plates. Overall a very solid machine.
Been using mine for years to train people. Still going strong. Most compact stand alone cable unit on the market. Almost no maintenance needed. Impressively smooth. Only downside is that it’s about as audible as a smith machine, which isn’t very audible to begin with.
ORDER IT! This machine is great! With 4 young boys, I am not able to make it to a gym anymore, and I really missed the cable machines. I started with just a small, cheap gym setup, and found that I really like working out at home. Not to mention the amount of time I save. (More time for my boys!) so I ordered this pulley machine. It is great quality, the pull is so smooth, shipping was super quick, and packaging was great! It took roughly 80-90 minutes to put together. (their you tube video is very helpful)
We mounted it into studs, with the rubber caps on the feet, and use it FREQUENTLY! I love that I am able to use one or both pulleys. So glad I was able to snag me one, if your on the fence, jump on over, you won’t regret it!
Side note: I had to reach out to customer service, before ordering, and they were prompt with getting back.
I can’t wait to upgrade my home gym to much more of their equipment.
The downside: I decided to upgrade during this mess. So everythingis out of stock! ? But I am patiently waiting. Thanks Archon, for making great equipment,
for the people like me who want a gym experience at home!
Got the adjustable dual pully system during the preorder issues. Really no complaints with this since every exercise equipment vendor is having serious issues. Got this and followed the set up video. Had to mount it and rig against a power rack. No issues in set up. No issues in shipment other than one box came one day and the other came the next. Exercises are smooth and without issues. Nice to have a safe in-home alternative vs possibility of getting sick from a gym. Life is boring without a fully adjustable pully system and even when the gyms open it’s nice to have the ability to work out from home with some workouts. Is noisy but just turn that music up. 10 stars if I could give them.
I am super happy with this cable station. I have limited space and this was the only product that would work in my home gym. I haven’t heard of this company before so I was a little worried about what I was getting myself into, but so far I have been very impressed by the quality.
I used a combo of the instructions and the youtube video to put it together and overall I thought it was pretty easy to assemble. It took me about 1.5 hours to complete.
If you are on the fence about this cable station, go ahead and buy it. It’s been a game changer for my home gym setup.
This isn’t a complain, but a suggestion…I would really like a knee holder attachment so that I can do Lat Pulldowns without lifting my body off the bench.
Great addition for most home gyms. I had planned on buying a full functional trainer, but I’m glad I saved money and went with this product. Plan about 90 minuets for setup and anchoring the unit. Use the manual and watch the YouTube video prior to assembly. I own various pieces of gym equipment and I was impressed by the quality of this product. Very heavy duty parts for a $300 unit. I love how little space you need for this unit. The top fit between my floor joists, and I scabbed a piece of wood between the joists to anchor the top. If you can’t anchor the bottom to a wall, you will need to put a few floor anchors in. I used tapcon anchors for my basement floor. If you want this machine to be as smooth as possible, I recommend spraying all of the pulleys with silicone lubricant as you assemble them. Also, give the guide rods a light spray as well.
*Fairly easy setup
*Cable action is very smooth. I own a commercial lat Pulldown machine and this machine is almost as smooth.
*Can perform chest flys, chest presses and various other exercises. I’m impressed at how well you can do flys on this machine.
*Add variety to workouts
*Accomodates short and tall users.
*Option to use only one pulley at a time. Great for alternating exercises.
Some have mentioned the noise of the machine. I will say that It’s not a quite machine, but many exercise machines are not quite. The rollers on my leg press machine sound very similar to this machine. Most listen to music when they lift, so you likely won’t be bothered by the noise. If you live in an apartment, you might need to consider the noise factor.
Just received my order after a long wait. Product is amazing for the home gym rat. The ball bearings are a great added benefit. Instructions are simple. Well worth the wait. Thanks archon for a greaat product.
Had this machine a week and it’s a solid buy for the money. Received in bubble wrap and good packaging with no missing pieces or damage. Had it assembled in about an hour, instructions were fairly easy to follow. Mounted my machine into garage floor and wall studs. The footprint and build quality of this machine can’t be beat for the price. Range of motion and travel distance of cables is great. I regret not finding this machine sooner. The only draw back for me, and this being my personal opinion, is there isn’t an option for a weight stack to be added. I know added weight stacks increase costs but I would have gladly paid the extra cost, but over all not a big deal. I would say no home gym is complete without this equipment and I will be purchasing a second tower soon to have cable cross-over ability. If there was an option for an added weight stack I could easily rate this equipment 10 out of 10, otherwise I give this 9 and 3/4 stars out of 10. You won’t be disappointed with this equipment, great job Archon!
Thank you for the great review John. Be sure to tag us in your video. Can’t wait to see it! We use #FitArchon #ArchonFitness
Great product, great company. Mine sits next to a commercial smith machine (I’m the third owner) and I would consider it of almost equal quality. I’d offer more details, but will likely instead do a youtube video with a review. In short, if you are looking for a cable pulley system this is a great purchase.
Hi Jake! I will send you an email now with that answer.
Just received my cable system today only five days after my order! Came heavily packed with lots of bubble wrap! All of the parts are well made and solid! Took about a couple of hours to put together, by myself , instruction are ok and I used you tube video to put on the cable.
All I can say it buy this! It is smooth in the pull with a little bit of negative resistance which is a plus to trick the muscles. This system is a great addition to my home gym! Thanks Archon for such a great product!! Well done!!
The two rods on the back are solid iron. The rods weight about 10 pounds each. The whole machine weights 82 pounds.
The ball bearings in the weight support are smooth. It moves really nice up and down. When you walk away (with the cable in your hands) from the machine, you can walk about 10 feet out, so you have plenty of space to do whatever exercise you have in mind.
I am extremely happy with this purchase, I just wish I didn’t wait so long to make the purchase.
I am not one to leave reviews much, but since I did not see any reviews, I decided to add my two cents. I will add pictures of my setup if the feedback allows it.
