The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute judged this stand The Best because it was the easiest to use and provided the sturdiest support for live Christmas trees. Unlike most stands that take at least two people to set up a tree, The Best model allows quick one-person setup that simply swivels the tree until it’s straight. During testing, trees installed in The Best Stand resisted more than twice as much force as trees in lesser models before tipping over. In durability tests, The Best Christmas Tree Stand sustained no damage when a 5-lb. weight was dropped on it repeatedly, while inferior stands cracked. Its reservoir holds 4 1/2 quarts of water and is easy to refill to keep needles fresh, and its drain slots prevent spills when the tree is taken down after the holidays. The heavy-duty plastic stand supports trees up to 12' tall and up to 120 lbs., with trunk diameter up to 5 3/4". 23 1/2" H x 23 1/2" Diameter. (14 3/4 lbs.)

Easier than our old tree stand
By Kim, healthy lifestyle
from Portland, OR
All in all this is easier than our old 3-screws cast iron stand. It was a bit of a challenge getting the tree "receptacle" onto the trunk. Our trunks tend to be wide and a little unevenly shaped. A smaller straighter trunk might be easier. The rest of the process was super easy. Standing up the tree was simple, and aligning it to be straight was simple and quick. I suspect the whole process will be a little easier next time as we will know what we are doing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

IT IS THE BEST TREE STAND
By Terrapin Don
from Sarasota, FL
It is difficult to see the water level. Would be nice if there was a clear strip with a gauge to see level of water

BIG SOLID Stand!
By Greenhouse Joe
from West Hartford, CT
Bought this to hold our first Christmas tree in our new home. Super dead-simple to use! We have 3 cast and the base held our 7 foot tree with no issues! Be warned, this base is TALL and WIDE (to get the physics on your side) and it's definitely not those old-school heavy iron deals. Leveling the tree was dead simple. Just put on the trunk-support-module after trimming the end of the tree. Walk over and place tree into unit. Push pedal and swivel tree to position. Add water. Boom, done! So easy!
The best stand I have ever owned
Had my 9.5' tree up and straight in 5 minutes
Almost the Best Tree Stand
By OFG in EKNH
from New Hampshire
I am not sorry I bought this. I really wish that the locking clamps would open wider. I didn't buy a tree as big as I usually do, and the clamps just barely fit. Still a good product.
PUTTING YOUR IN THE STAND
from METAIRIE LA
THE BEST TREE STAND IS THE BEST AVAILABLE I SUGGEST PUTTING YOUR TREE IN THE STAND WHILE ITS STILL TIED UP BECAUSE ITS A LITTLE TRICKY GETTING THE THE TIGHTENING ARMS STABLE AND TIGHT ONCE ITS IN ITS VERY EASY TO GET YOUR TREE WARE YOU WANT IT.WHEN FILLING WITH WATER BE SURE TO PAY ATTENTION I WAS FEELING FOR WATER INSIDE THE CUP NOT THE OUTSIDE OF THE CUP AND IT OVERFLOWED
Fast and best
from Jackson, CA
I cannot buy this type of stand anywhere around where I live (I have had two of them before). The adjustable stand arrived sooner than expected and we put it to use at once - exactly what I expected. Great Job!
The Five Minute Tree Stand
By Generic Shopper
from Austin, Texas
Have had an identical stand for the past fifteen years and worried that it might break some day. So I bought a back-up stand just in case. No way we would have a real tree if we didn't have this stand.
Good with Limitations
Returned product twice. Did not use. It was supposed to replace a similar stand I had for years that finally died. First arrived broken. Second would not support our 12' tree. Still awaiting credit on second one.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. This can hold up to a 12 foot tree, but as you mentioned, depending on the diameter of the trunk. It can support up to a 5 3/4" trunk.
