I love the MIKOLO M4 Smith Machine. It has everything I need from the gym. It is well worth the money for a home gym. I would have given it 5 stars but it didn’t have all the pulleys and when I reached out to customer service they told me the pulleys were out of stock and would send me them when they got back in stock. I had to order other pulleys from Amazon to fully use my machine.
One aspect that sets the Mikolo M4 Smith Machine apart is its smooth and efficient Smith bar system. The bar glides effortlessly along the guide rods, allowing for precise and controlled movements. I particularly appreciate the counterweight system, which reduces the overall resistance during exercises and enhances the feeling of safety and control.
Received the M4 machine one week after purchasing. The machine was east to put up with the help of another person.
It was to my surprise that the machine was an upgrade from the advertised model. Many of the negative points were fixed in my machine. Notable the cables and the bar hooks.
Would definitely recommend purchasing it.
This machine is perfect for my home gym especially working out alone. This has everything I need! I’m very satisfied with my purchase. It took some time to setup however well worth it!
After checking out all available options less than $2,500, I chose for the Mikolo M4 because it came with everything needed for a starter setup except the bench. As an experienced bodybuilder there are a few workarounds and minor issues I noticed right away (cable machine lat Pulldowns isnt high enough to use while sitting on a standard bench, also the cables exit in such a way that the metal attachment grinds on the pulley housing just as it enters/exits for tricep pressdowns for example, and the cable ratios seem to decrease the weight a fair bit so I will need to purchase more plates.)
That said the cables flow smoothly, there are 2 weight stacks, the included accessories are nice, the smith machine bar glides well and without friction, the overall rack is built well, and the size is good. An experienced gym rat will know how to easily make this machine function without much compromise and a novice probably wouldn’t notice the minor faults. Very happy with my purchase and impressed by the value. Plan to keep this for 5-7 years before upgrading to a real multi-piece commercial gym setup. Thanks Mikolo!
The unit is outstanding, solid in construction and easy to use. The assembly was straightforward. I see a lot of the issues people had in the past with this unit have been updated by the company, which is great. This review would be a little higher if the unit wasn’t missing several essential pieces for the assembly. Overall, good machine and solid construction, I’m waiting to hear back from the company to address the missing parts.
