Class up your workbench!
For years I made do in my garage workbench with hand-me-down barstools that had no backrest, wobbly legs, and torn up seat coverings. No more! This shop stool is a really nice piece. The legs are sturdy, powder coated and held together with locking nuts (which should eliminate wobbliness down the road.) The seat is not overly cushy, but comfortable enough for its intended use. The vinyl covering is shiny and seems to be good quality. I chose red to give my workbench area a pop of color. The swivel action is nice, and the pneumatic height adjuster is robust and smooth in operation. The height a

Better after a modification.
One of the legs on my old shop stool rusted off a while ago, I welded a piece of angle iron on it. Shortly after that a second leg caved in so I figured it was time for a new one. I wanted a seat height of 25", I saw this one advertised as having an adjustable seat height from 26"-30". I figured one inch isn't going to matter so I bought one. I got it all together only to find out the minimum seat height was actually 30"! I thought about returning it but looked around at other ones, saw the prices and thought all I needed to do was cut off 5" so I took a tubing cutter so I would get a nice eve

Just what I needed
I've been looking for an adjustable height shop stool with a back for a while, doing the research and reading reviews. I have a higher than average work bench so I wanted something with a seat that goes over 30". This one does. I wanted something sturdy since I'd be at the top end of the seat height. This one is sturdy. It was on sale at 20% off so I got it. It took about 20 minutes to assemble, not difficult at all as some reviews said it was. Just read the assembly instructions. Looks to have a nice powder coating that will last, the hydraulic adjustment seems strong and the adjustable backr

Great addition to my workshop!
I have had the Adjustable Shop Stool for a bit over a week now. It lets me do some repetitive work on my radial arm saw without getting my legs and feet tired. I can also now use the radial arm saw table as a work site for smaller projects. The stool is comfortable and the asustments make it very versatile in my shop! Being able to buy ot at a steep discount made it an even better value to me! The only 'down' for me was the assembly. I couldn't access my 'third arm and hand' to make it easier, but was able to get it assembled fairly quickly with not too many foibles.If you think you need a cha

Looks good, not the best
I was excited to try this product. I got it on sale for $64. Its a nice looking shop stool, spins, but the problem is how the piston mounts in the chair. It just sits in there without any screws or anything holding it. Its fine for moving, because its tapered so wont pull out. The problem is, once you sit in it you can rock in it. I dont think this is a rocking chair. The higher you make the chair go up the worse it gets obviously. Not sure if Ill keep it. The base is secure its just the seat on the piston that makes everything wobble.

Great stool, great price
Was looking for an affordable stool with backrest for a long time. Find this works for me perfectly. Needed a stool with backrest for band practice so I'm not hunched over.and can rest my back. was a little tall and had to shimmy up on it,, so I cut 3" off the bottom, put back the feet and is better for me. Instructions are VERY vague,.kinda useless but just need common sense to assemble it. It's easy to do.. Just wish the seat was a little bigger diameter but that's not enough to effect performance. Great stool

Overall, its a nice shop stool
Ive had the stool for a little over a month now. Assembly was quite simple with a few different tools, and it was quick. I use this for my leather working table and it works as intended. The only modification that I might make is to cut about 3-4 inches off the legs to lower it down a bit so Im not hunched over working on projects. The piston which is has a nice and smooth action will allow me to get to the proper height when working on different things. Overall, its does what is supposed to do and is comfortable too.

Not Bad
Wanted a good stool to go with my new work bench , and had been looking for awhile . Came across this on HF website & ordered it kind of spur of the moment . It took awhile to get here , but finally showed up , and was in good condition . Putting together was a breeze , and it certainly seems sturdy enough . My main concern is if the shiny upholstery will hold up over time , and the seat isn't as soft and comfortable as I had hoped , but it's not too bad . Over all , I don't generally sit at my bench for long periods of time , so I think this will do .

Good stool...BUT!!!!
Simple snd straight forward instructions except with describing parts.....not so hot!! Speaking of parts....the bolts that hold the connector cover (part # 8) and connector plate (part #20) are too small. So I drilled out the holes and used 3/8" bolt, washers and locking nuts. Now it's solid as a rock! Other that the aforementioned issue, there were no other issues. I recommend. Not a 5-star review....but a solid 4-star. Fix the issue and you have s 5-star product...imho.

Nice seat for shop. Cushion could be larger. Overall nice.
I liked how seat assembled fairly easily. I have put together similar seats before. Having a seat back and a cushioned seat is a big improvement over my old wooden bench seat. My old seat was 24" high, this seat starts at about 28" and can raise up to I think about 32" +/-. I put seat together on a flat surface , took me a little time to get all four legs to sit flat to surface. I got it close enough. I feel the seat cushion could be a little wider ( more area for sitting ) and I'm not that large a guy. 5' 11" , 190. I am overall pleased with the seat, although I haven't had much time to use i

This is my third chair in a month. Bought two on Amazon and had to return them. Extremely low quality, definitely not aomething to sit in that far off the ground. Also no instructions in the box, poor fit quality. I am very pleased with the quality and the sturdiness of the Pittsburgh shop stool. Excellent fit. Very pleased with this purchase. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a shop stool.very comfortable.

Good quality, great features
I've had this for only 3 weeks now. Assembly was easy. The swivel and adjustable height and back work well. Mine does not have the Pittsburgh logo on the back. This could be an advantage if you want to use it in other parts of the house, say at your kitchen island or bar. It is a little too high for one of my benches but I could cut the legs a little shorter if it really annoyed me. Some HF products get a bad rap for quality. This isn't one of them. I can't believe how much work I've actually gotten done in my shop now that I have something comfortable to sit on. I'm thinking of getting anothe

Nice looking chair but won't work for my purposes
We put the chair together. The instructions said it would drop to 26 inches at the seat but it only goes to 27 1/2. My husband called the company. They agreed that it should have gone lower. Harbor Freight was very good about taking it back and very nice on the phone. We have purchased many items through them with no issues. Just be aware that the height advertisement isn't quite accurate.

Good stool. Wrong adjustable size on box...
I would give this a 5 star review but had to return it. It was nice and sturdy and comfortable. But top of seat to floor was 28" not 26" (it's just over 27" from bottom of seat to floor) as shown on box. It's also an inch more at its maximum height. I measured the display model after I returned it and it was the exact measurement as mine. I needed a stool that could go as low as 26" and this was not it unfortunately....

A great stool for the workshop
My knees hurt sometimes and I get tired standing on my workshop floor. After fiddling with a wooden bar stool, i found this at HF on sale. Assembly went quickly and the instructions are "OK", could be better. The stool is comfortable and I can even set my feet upon the lower bar. This is useful when I am spending a lot of time at my workbench doing something like soldering or assembling a carburetor. The back support is the reason I chose this stool over others. It is really nice having that back support. Definitely a great product, I highly recommend it.

Giving as a gift
Purchased this item as a gift for a friend. All parts were in box as they should be. I put it together by myself but an extra set of hands would have been helpful. Presented it to my friend and informed he was the first to sit on his stool. He tried it out and was very pleased. I tried it out and found the padding to be adequate, the swivel to be convenient, and the foot rail comfortable. I would purchase again.

Spend more and get a better quality stool
This stool feels very cheap, and is not very comfortable. Especially for extended use. The padding is thin and makes it feel like you are sitting on a rock. It also feels it will bend or buckle after a year or so. I am only 160 pounds. I would recommend spending more and getting a better quality stool elsewhere.

Works well with comments.
Overall the stool works well for me. It was easy to assemble. The instructions point to a "bracket" which doesn't exist. It's not on the parts list either. However, it's not needed. Just look at the parts and it's obvious how it goes together. Also, the back rest does offer some support for me although it would be nice if it were a little taller. However, I'm only 5"8" tall. If you're much taller, it's useless. That's unfortunate as it could have easily been made adjustable by having the two vertical rods taller and putting in some extra holes.

Looks good without any unecessary logos
Easy to put together, not damaged in the package, and it's pretty slick without any logos. It matches my shop bench without coming off as cheap. There were some metal shavings/hole punches rattling around inside the larger round section, but I was able to shake them out in about a minute. I wasn't too attracted to the shiny gloss of the seat, but I imagine it will make cleaning any dust off never a chore.

Nice garage stool
This stool is great for not only your garage but can also be used for a stage stool for musicians or a house bar. The back rest does not come with the writing on it as in the stock pictures, it's simply a black back rest. It's easy to assemble but you might need another person if you're not comfortable doing things like this. The only negative is, it should have a higher weight limit than 275lbs based on its construction.

Easy to assemble - sturdy
With the addition of a commercial sewing machine to our shop I needed a stool that would be comfortable for the long hours at the machine but not so bulky that its always in the way. With my Inside Track membership price it was a no-brainer and its sturdy! It was easy to assemble and with the adjustment its just the right height. I should have gotten one a long time ago for my other workstations in our shop.

Great shop stool!!!
This is a great shop stool. Very strong, but not too heavy. It's adjustable up and down and it swivels. The back support is strong and just right if you want to sit back and contemplate or watch u tube. Comes in 4 colors. I got the blue and its great! I strongly recommend this stool.

Perfect stool for the shop at an unbeatable price.
I needed a taller stool to work on a shop table. I looked around a bunch of thrift stores and used websites. I could not find anything that was just right. Then I looked at the Harbor Freight site and saw this stool. It was priced in the range I was hoping for, and it was more adjustible than I expected. Perfect tool for the job!

Good adjustable stool
Due to the height of some of our equipment a nonadjustable stool would not work. This stool worked great, the swivel seat has enough padding so you can sit for extended periods. The adjustable foot pads are a plus as our floor is smooth but is not flat in places these help make the stool very stable no teeter. Construction is good and easy to assemble, overall a very good stool. We now have three in the shop and they are holding up very well they have not gotten loose and the lift cylinder has not leaked. I do recommend that you wipe the the shinny part of the cylinder once in a while and use

It's adjustable
I think it's made well, as in the material is good. But at the same time the handle to pump the chair up or down came in all cracked and broken in about six different pieces. And the seat just barely sits on a little pole. It's not comforting to know that that's how it sits on there. But for the few times I've sat on it it hasn't "broken" yet. I love how it looks and how high and low it goes. Good addition to the garage just wish the seat was more secure and that pieces didn't come in broken.

Good shop stool for the price
This stool adjusts low enough to be comfortable at a 39" height work bench. Other stools lowest position was about 3" higher. Pittsburg Automotive was not on the back section of the chair which I prefer. The size of the seat might be a little small for larger derrires. This is a good addition to my shop.

It's a chair. Works great
What I wrote. It's a chair. It swivels. It works. WARNING!!! When putting it together, read the instructions. Don't tighten ANY BOLTS until all are installed. The chair is very picky when being put together.

Makes great desk chair...
I'm using this chair more like a draftsman chair at my desk which is higher than most. It sits on top a hard plastic carpet protector and even without wheels it moves easily. It is sturdy but lightweight and the fact the seat rotates 360 (and I might add easily) it has proven a excellent choice for me. I highly recommend this chair.

Having back problems and needed a good shop stool
Nice stool. Well made. However, Im 55 and I needed to whack off 3 - 4 so I could at least lean onto the stool while working at my bench. No problems for a DIY person. A little pricey, but Im a Fast Track Member and the price was reduced by $10.00. I have a few other stools, but none are as solid/versatile/ adjustable like this one.

Good product
Assembled easily. Comfortable to sit on. Great height and adjustability. The 360 swivel is nice option when working on multiple things. Foot rests are in a nice comfortable position. Feet have rubber so no scraping, sliding, or rusting on concrete. Good price. I haven't had this very long so I don't know about long term. I have every reason to believe this will last a long time.

Good Value
I use this stool to sit when performing lengthy machining operations at my lathe or mill. It went together easy and seems pretty sturdy so far. The only reason I gave 4 stars is the "Patent Leather" shiny thin seat covering. I dare not sit down with any objects in my back pockets and am going to treat the seat cover with care; possibly cover with a towel or ??? The shiny surface is also a bit on the slippery side. The stool is very comfortable to sit in and the back rest is a bonus.

Great stool so far
Looks good. Assembly was easy. My work bench is high and seat height is perfect. I don't see any quality issues. I am 6'2" 250# and seat is wide enough for a work stool. Not so comfortable for sitting long periods talking to friends but great for sitting at bench for projects. Someone mentioned being dissatisfied because seat only attaches to cylander just sitting on top of it but that's how hydrolic stools are.

At home in my garage I was always standing at my workbench. Never had a chair to sit in that would allow me to sit comfortably while working on something on the bench. Thank God for my fatigue Matt from Harbor Freight but that would only relieve me so much. Then I realized while thumbing through my monthly flyer from H.F.T., there it was. The perfect work stool. So I immediately rushed rushed down to my local HFT store and bought my perfect elevation solution to work with my workbench. Adjustable elevation and as always quality materials and easy assembly I now enjoy sitting in my new work sto

Great product and great price
The installation is fairly simple. It seems to be very good quality. After putting it together I used it for a whole day and it worked just as I would expect it too. It's comfortable, easy to let up and down, and very sturdy. Plus I got it with a 20% promotion so that made it even better.

Sturdy construction good quality stool for work
Nice powder coat finish on the metal legs and seat components. Pneumatic height adjusts smoothly. Removable backrest distance adjustable with two thumbscrews. One drawback is the whooshing sound of air exiting the vinyl seat each time you sit down on it. This is a taller stool with minimum seat surface to ground level at 28" which will be too tall for standard desk or counter top height unless you cut off the bottom of the legs and pull out and reinsert the 4 feet back into the tubing. Cutting with standard pipe cutter works fine if you sand out the inside of the tubing before reinserting the

Good quality shop stool for a fair price
Easy to assemble stool and very comfortable to sit on. Though it is comfortable, the cushion is relatively "thin" and a $20 leather cushion from Amazon makes the sitting experience all that better. BTW, there is no company branding on the back rest as shown in the product picture.... It's free and clear. Lastly, compared a similarly looking product with like features at Home Depot to this stool and went with this one for a lower price at Harbor Freight.

Don't buy the Kobalt shop stool from Lowes, buy this one!
Just like the headline says, because the Kobalt chair falls apart in about 5 minutes, and I'm not a big dude! This chair is lighter than it looks, better quality, better looking (the backrest doesn't have the Pittsburgh logo on it, it's plain black), and backed by HF's 90 warranty! I have different height benches and going up and down all day is no big deal for this stool, I weld from this stool, lounge, and spin around like a little kid in it, and it feels solid and shows no signs of deteriorating any time soon! My only critique is the assembly instructions. Make sure you READ STEPS ALL THE S

Great stool like the adjustments with the hydraulic cylinder
Easy to put together. Very comfortable, and easy to adjust. Also bottom and upper rings have a place to put your feet. Also adjustable back part of seat can adjust to your back. Made of very strong steel and seat and back are padded. Shopped around before I bought it cheapest around at Harbor Freight.
