Have a few of the original Ol' Man climbers, the good ones. I think they're all Grand Visions. After I was given one of the new models and hated it, I bought a few used Grand Visions off ebay. These stands probably in the 10 year old range, and for the last 6 or so years I've used them anywhere from 30-50 times per season. Question is, does anyone know if these things have an "expiration date" so to speak? As in, after X number of years should I worry about the frame giving out or anything of that nature? The platform started to fall out on one of them, so I switched to another, but I keep worrying about being 20 feet up and something just snapping.

The ole man I use is over ten years old. I just look it over every year and check for any problems. As far as an "expiration date", I have no idea.

I'm still using one of the originals and still love it. Just watch for rusting or weak spots. I also use their aluminum stand. I like it but about the 3rd time I used it the side frame broke while I was up in the tree. This was during prime rutting activity and I needed that stand. I came straight home and called them explaining the situation. The next day I had my new parts (upgraded) in the mail. Their customer service was great. The stand shouldn't have snapped in the first place but they took care of the problem immediately.
