(More customer reviews)I should preface this by saying that I think all of these laundry pedestals are horribly overpriced. That said, here's my thoughts:
We picked a pair of these up for our 4 year old Maytag Neptune front loaders about a month ago. They are constructed of metal frames and are nice and sturdy. The drawer is made of a heavy-ish plastic material and feels pretty solid. We passed on getting the matching Neptune pedestals back in 2006 when we bought the Maytag's (and to think they were only $110 each back then!). My wife recently decided that it might be nice to have the washer and dryer sit higher so that she didn't have to bend down as much to get the laundry in/out (can't say I blame her). We lucked out and found these at Lowe's on sale for $49 each, so we just had to get them even though they were Bosch and not Maytag. My wife LOVES the new height of the washer/dryer now. I've heard from her several times now tell me that she's fallen back in love with her laundry. Since I was mounting these to a set of Maytag's, they were not "plug and play". What I ended up doing was to use a large section of cardboard and make a stencil of the existing mounting points on the bottom of the Maytag's and then transfer those locations over to the Bosch pedestals. Once I had the location of the new mounting holes marked, I drilled new holes into the top of the pedestals for the Maytag's to mount to. I was able to use the new washing machine mounting bolts that Bosch supplied but had to improvise and use sheet metal screws for the dryer. It's been about a month since these were installed and we have had no issues so far.
