SkiErg column base dimensions

Post by Evbear » April 3rd, 2021, 11:13 am

Hi
I’m eagerly awaiting delivery of my SkiErg later on in April but in the meantime I’m planning its best location.I’ll be wall mounting it rather than using the stand as I’ll be working out from my wheelchair.
I’ve got the overall max dimensions from the brochure but does anyone have the measurements of just the column base and its fixing holes? The column looks around 1/3 of the width of the flywheel (not sure if that’s the right terminology) and the base with screw holes a bit wider than that. Both dimensions would be really helpful.
Many thanks

Mine is wall-mounted. Rough measurements of the base - it's about 8 inches wide by 8.5 inches deep. Mounting holes in the rear flange are about 6.5 inches apart. With the 1-inch spacer used behind flange for the mounting bolts if no baseboard (or direct into baseboard molding) you're probably talking the base extends nominally about 9.5 inches from the wall (behind the flywheel).

Hi Evan
That’s really kind of you to reply. Really grateful for the dimensions which will allow me to plan the location properly. Now knowing the measurements, I’ve swapped which wall I’ll mount it on. I’ll be securing the base through skirting board into the brick wall behind so perhaps I won’t need the spacer?
Thanks again for replying. From your namesake, Evan :-)

Glad to help another Evan! Before I got mine I was trying to figure out what the spacers were for - was it vertical alignment or something else, as the instructions say if you're going into molding instead of straight into the wall you don't need the spacer. It all clicked when I saw the finished install. There's a rear bearing cover (part #1010 on schematic) that sticks out from the rear side of the box frame. Spacers or molding allow the base to be secured while giving space between the wall and the bearing cover.

Enjoy your SkiErg when it comes. I have!

Evan
