Overview of the RE4

 
The Rogue RE 4 Echo Rack is a low-cost option rack out of the Rogue portfolio. It comes in black and is manufactured in Columbus, Ohio. 
 
The total length of the Echo rack is 47'' while it is 47'' wide. It stands 90.375'' tall and the steel notes are made from 2x2'' 11 Gauge Steel. The unit needs to be bolted to the floor as long as there are no stabilizers bought with it. The RE4 is compatible with the Rogue Eco series and its accessories. Delivery includes bands pegs and J cups, Pin/Pipe safeties have to be purchased separately. The weight of the shipment is 190LB.  You will also have a Single pull up bar and a fat/skinny pull up bar with this rack. The total footprint of this rack comes to 53''x53''. 
 
The Echo rack is a compact and lightweight option from Rogue at a low price point. You find yourself here with some of the lowest cost options for full racks from Rogue.
 

Pros of the RE4

 
The biggest pro of the RE4 is the very low price for a full rack. You will also still work with the fine craftsmanship of Rogue and have a good rack.
 

Cons of the RE4

 
The unit needs to be bolted to the floor and has 2x2 steel notes. For Rogue standard,s we are entering the "flimsy" territory with this rack. If you want to buy this rack in Europe you will also be disappointed to know that it does not ship from there. 
 

Alternatives to the RE4

 
Alternatives to the RE4 are:
 
 
The RE 3 is the half rack version of the RE4. If you want to save even more space and money this is a good alternative for you to work with. 
 
The RM4 Fortis is the Monster brother of the RE4. This rack will have the advantage that it has bigger steel notes and will sot better with the newest additions to the Rogue portfolio. 
 
The RML3WC is a variation if you want to make your space convertible. The 3WC can fold against the wall, making it possible to still park a car in front or do exercises when it is not being used.
