Climber 1 stand, its just the right size for your parrot whether it's an African Grey or larger bird, or even a larger one like a Macaw Its great to get your Parrot out of the cage every so often, Cleo and Maddie love their stand and your bird will too, you do need somewhere suitable for them to perch, leave them to their own devices and they will roost in your curtains, take it upon their selves to, prepare the walls for redecoration, if you have a parrot you will know exactly what I mean Parrots can be very destructive and messy, at least with one of these stands you limit what they get up to, clip a few toys on the stand and they will be as happy as Larry I am quite sure with time the wooden perch will get a hammering, but they are easy to replace and cheaper than trashed furniture Features #Ladders #Wheels #Feeder #Water Bowl #Brand New #Flat Packed #Seed Catcher #Bottom Tray #Two Platforms #Rustic Hard Perch #76cm x 58cm x 145cm Most of the seed and fruit that parrots waste will land on the tray, the size is 76cm x 58cm x 145cm, it comes complete with two feeding bowls This stand comes with wheels on the base so its easy to move around the room, it will arrive to you ready for assembly, and it will take you 10 minutes to do all you need is a screwdriver and a pair of pliers They represent excellent value for money and its will be one of those accessories that you can buy that will give you and your birds so much enjoyment

When first I opened the box and took a look at the design of this perch, I thought, this is exactly like a piece of junk I bought a few years ago. However, as I was planning to make a move soon, I didn't assemble the unit, so couldn't give a thorough review. Now that I have set it up, I find that it is, in fact, different from the one I purchased years ago, and in a couple of respects, it's better, but more on that after I tell you why you may not want to buy one of these.
This is a perfect example of someone going to China with a product design that they wanted manufactured. In this case, I believe it is an Englishman, rather than an American. But, Englishmen want to make money just as much as Americans, and this is another example of a descent design being manufactured as cheaply as possible to maximize profits. But, don't blame the Chinese. They only build what they are asked to build, and I've seen some really nice stuff, when the designer is willing to pay for the best materials and processes. This isn't one of those cases.
So, first, let's give them a small break and touch on the good points. It has a better system for mounting the seed catcher skirts to the base frame. They don't have sharp corners created by their mounting system on which you can cut you legs! A considerable improvement over my old unit. Also, it uses an insert, welded inside of the tubes that form its frame, into which the fasteners are screwed. This is superior to the thin metal tabs that were welded horizontally to the tubes, and through which the screws passed, to attach them to the base frame on the older one that I have, and which broke away from the tubes in short order and had to be re-welded (I'm just fortunate to know how to weld and have a wire feed welder to fix such things).
However, while this is an improvement, it isn't a total solution, I don't believe, as the use of wide tolerances in the cutting and shaping of the frame tubes results in having to pull them in one direction, or the other, in order to get them to line up with the screw holes. This means that the entire frame, once fully assembled, is extremely stressed, putting a great deal of strain on every fastener and weld on the unit. Over time, if the unit is moved around much, this may result in some welds breaking, or the inserts in the frame tubes to break their welds and become free within the tubes. If this happens, the assembly will become very rickety, and possibly no longer even usable. Looking at the quality of the welds, I fear this will happen sooner rather than later.
There are some proper welds, but this only goes to show that the designer/customer isn't willing to pay the Chinese factory for proper quality control, which tells me that the designer cares little about their customer, you, the end user. Also pointing to that, is the fact that the kit is poorly set up for you to assemble, with woefully inadequate instructions and no numbers on the parts to correspond with the drawings, making many of them extremely difficult to identify. I happen to be a mechanically oriented person, with over 45 years of experience in working with mechanical assemblies, everything from high tech formula racing cars to color additive motion picture printers to farm tractors. Had I not been, I'd not have been able to assemble this from the instructions, and even I found it annoyingly difficult. In the end, there were not enough of one type screw and too many of another - again, a lack of quality control - even in the packing department!
Another quality issue is the thickness of the metal used for some parts, like rails that support the grate above the debris tray, which are paper thin, and the debris tray, itself, has a handle that, while made of some sort of metal, bends like a piece of rubber! As delivered, it was so bent that it couldn't possibly align with its mounting holes!! Making matters worse, it uses 2 very tiny metric screws to attach it, and one was missing. Try finding one at your local hardware or Home Depot! So, my debris tray has no handle.
So, if you can get it assembled, is it bird worthy (probably the most important question)? NO! Unless you're willing to immediately replace the perch piece, itself. First problem is, the 'stick' is made of a very soft wood, wood so soft that a parakeet could chew it! My Military Macaw destroyed it within 10 minutes of mounting it for the 1st time! And, while the size of this assembly would seem to indicate it to be worthy of Macaws and Cockatoos, the diameter of the stick is only an inch. It should be bigger for the comfort of larger birds, but someone was't willing to pay the Chinese to do this! Nor were they willing to pay for a harder wood. Also, the designer's concern over the cost of assembly was again the priority when designing the method for mounting the 'perch stick' to the frame. Metal plates were stamped out with a slotted tab and the 'sticks' were slotted on each end to drop over those tabs, meaning a quick manufacturing process that leaves the end user with no easy way to mount a new 'stick'. Greedy and inconsiderate!
Also, something that actually offends me, is the marketing gimmick that is the addition of the so called 'swing' perch. This 'swing' is attached to a piece of horizontal frame. On my old unit, this frame had a grill that the bird could walk on and stand on to play with toys suspended from above. As the 'swing' here really isn't a swing, but rather a very flimsy metal frame with a 3/4 inch stick at its bottom for the perch part, that is attached to the referenced frame with a vertical screw, making it absolutely immovable and not a swing at all, the frame it's attached to is wasted material. Had they put the grate in it and left the 'swing' off, it would have been more functional, but wouldn't have looked as fancy and attractive to the bird owner in the product photos.
This thing comes with a fancy card, telling you that it's a genuine such and such brand. All it is, is a very low quality perch made in China, but again, don't blame the Chinese. They only build what they're asked to. Remember when 'made in Japan' was viewed in the same light? How are their products viewed now? I'll get use out of this, but not without almost re-engineering it! I'm sure that there may be some other customers who are satisfied with this product and who will give it a good review, but they must have purchased something else, or could it be that we're becoming so accustomed to this level of 'quality', that it's become acceptable?!?!?!?! If I owned Amazon, I would not want such a product on my shelf.
