Bought this sled over the weekend and it was processed and shipped first thing the following Monday morning and received it on Thursday. It was packaged well with Styrofoam and bubble wrap. The welds look good, as well as the powder coat finish. This sled is built like a tank, very heavy, sturdy and should last a long time. The only issue I have with it is that the threaded ring inside the weight plate collar was welded slightly off center, so the collar doesn't screw down completely flush. It tilts slightly, maybe a 1/32 to a 1/16 , although this isn't a deal breaker for me. It's not very noticeable, sturdy and functions properly as of now. If you are looking for a great basic Dogsled at a better price than another well known brand, look no further.
