I had bought this aluminum climbing stand new, around 1990. I never left it out in the rain, the wooden seat still seems safe as well as all the bolts etc.. no rust on them or anything.
I do not have the paperwork on it and the name of the manufacturer and anything else had peeled off or been painted over. (back then, I felt that if a deer looked up at me and saw the orange decal or whatever, and it wasn't camo'd it would had given me away, so I peeled and painted over everything to more or less blend in.)
I hadn't used this stand in many years but it seems ok still, would you feel safe using it??
I feel that this stand is much easier to use than the new summit I got this year.
I also do not know the weight rating, back then I was about 200 Lbs, but since then I added a bit more to my frame but working hard to get rid of it.
I do not want to get rid of this stand, anyone also know who may have made it??
