If you are a large person and need handles do not buy this product.
Reviewer: mary h. from keller, tx
User Details: The diminsions should be given between the two handles. Some who weigh 200-300 would not be able to sit on the stool unless they sit on the handles! T
Strengths: Well made and sturdy; not heavy.
Weaknesses: The seat needs to be bigger to accomodate larger people. Once the handles are on, a large person would not be able to sit on the stool. And if one is large, then they probably do need handles to get up and down.
