Guys, I have a once in a lifetime deal on getting some top notch equipment due to a hardcore gym going out of business for my home gym. I’m already buying a Nebula 35 degree leg press, Keiser M3 bike, sissy squat stand, and a bunch of lat machine attachments dirt cheap. I have the option of buying a commercial hack squat or Smith machine, but not sure which one I want. I already have a power rack, dip stand, lat pull down machine, leg extension/leg curl, 45 degree hyper, ab bench & dumbbells 5-120lbs. Just wanted to get some opinions on this before pulling the trigger. Thanks in advance!

At home, I'd go for the Smith machine, so you can work on presses without a spotter.

Only reason I would buy the smith is if you are truly going to use it hard at least every other week and you have plenty of room for it. It sounds like you can afford it and have mentioned buying both. I say if you can afford it easily and have the room then get both. If you do a lot of hack squats then having that will be really nice. Is it Nebula too? If it is then I would definitely buy both. Im not even sure if they still make Nebula. It was my favorite when I used to go to the gym. Quality stuff.

I love hack squats but if I could only have one in a home gym it'd be a smith machine

If you can afford to have/keep both, by all means...

I’m thinking of buying them both and selling whatever I don’t want. Lol

nice, best of both worlds for sure,but if I had to pick just 1, it would be the smith

Make room for it. All three of your kids can share the same bedroom. That is how the Amish do it, and they turned out just fine.

As long as it's a good smith machine. I've used a lot more garbage ones than good ones!

Should be a smooth stroke, no play side to side... maybe you can replace bearings to fix an old one? I'm not sure.
