It fit in my Ford Windstar MiniVan, but with both back rows down, so I dont think it would fit. The actual box length is 14.96" x 77.96" x 17.72". and it weighs around 200 lbs.

It is a long rectangle. I got it in my minivan. A pickup would be better. SUV should be fine if large or back window flips up for it to hang out. I think the box was about 7' long.

It's a big box. It comes in at 15"x78"x18" for the swing set itself, the packaging adds a little more bulk, but not much.

NO, the rocking horse mounting is a part of the leg supports and if you leave it out the structure will not have the support it needs.

answer 4
I'm not sure if you are asking if the entire length may be shortened by leaving off a swing or not. If so, the answer is no, it cannot be shortened because the main frame is the length it comes. You build it first then attach the parts. If you leave off a swing, it will just be an empty spot.

The slide is durable molded plastic. The frame and steps are metal, but the slide is plastic; hope this helps.

Molded plastic,
The directions also suggest you remove the slide (plastic parts) in the winter and face the slide north to cut down on sun light. It does get really hot in direct sun.

The slide is molded plastic. The frame for it and the ladder is steel.

It is the molded plastic....thank goodness. Although it is a cheaper plastic because it gets on the warm side in the sun. Keep pants on the kids that are under 5 to prevent them saying, it's too hot!

@mama: Thank you. What we're thinking of doing is not to put on the end with the saucer and just put the slide there. The saucer looks like it's fabric and we have three outdoor cats and don't see that lasting long, but we love the rest of the swing set so much. Thank you again.

The instructions suggest mounting the slide on the end with the horse. We did not try it but, the mounting bracket for the slide, I would think, could be placed on the end with the saucier. The slide mounting bracket is the bar between the A frames that support screws to attach the slide to the swing set.

Nope. The frame is the length that it is. You attach the parts to the frame. You can't remove the center piece because all three nestle and are bolted through the pre-manufactured holes. You should look to a smaller set, like the 5-piece by Sportspower.

If I remember from putting this together, if you leave off the saucer it will leave part of the top extending out (it's supposed to connect to the end part of the swing).

Question

What is the wall thickness of the steel tubing used for the main part of the frame

The description say's 2" heavy duty, but it does not give a wall thickness of the tubular steel
asked 1 year, 4 months ago

answer 1
The thickness measures almost but not quite 1/8". Bear in mind, this is a typical backyard swing set, not a commercial grade. It is fairly light weight. It rocks, wiggles, and jolts- and it can blow over or fly away in tornado winds if not anchored. The manufacturer voids warranty if the set is not anchored properly and they recommend to set it into cement filled holes of 45 lbs concrete per leg. You may also use a ground anchoring system with stakes. Manufacturer has strong cautions against letting children play on set in high winds, and states NO CLIMBING on the main frame. Also no swinging more than 60 degrees arc. It is not intended for children over 100 lbs, or over age 8, or for excess of 7 children or a total of 700 lbs at one time, probably because it is not designed for heavy duty abuse. The set must be on level ground, and they want you to tighten all hardware twice a month. But I think it is a sturdy, well made set for the price. Just follow safety measures and supervise children when they are using the set, as recommended, and it will be fine.

It is a poor quality. Not heavy duty in my opinion. Not when compared to the Flexible Flyer Brand. Cheaply made. Can't tell you the exact tubular wall thickness.
