Bought this last time (which was pretty recent). The rower makes a terrible grinding noise. I cant tell if its bearings in the wheel or if it has to do with the chain retracting but its awful sounding. If it wasn’t such a bear to pack up and return I would have. I’d recommend saving for a concept rower, but maybe you’ll be luckier than I was.
I bought this the last time it was offered. I don’t have the same issue with the grinding noise, but the fan is very loud as expected. It was very easy to put together, and is solidly built. No misaligned screw holes or other issues. Seat slides fairly smoothly but it is less ergonomic than the Concept II or other high end rowers. The Display seems to calculate calories at a way lower rate than other machines I have used.
Overall a very decent machine for 300 but if I had to do it again I would splurge for a higher end model.
I have been using a rower found in many gyms, for years, daily. It has given me no problems at all. I hightly recommend sticking with the high quality rowers if you plan on using one regularly. This one does not get great reviews.
got this last time, It was easy enough to put together, and works as one would expect, Sturdy build (i’m 270 lbs Holds me just fine) but for one little flaw…it’s way to easy and there would appear to not be a way to adjust tension? or the amount of force needed to pull back. Still good for an super easy workout in the way that you can get your heart rate up if you try.
I also bought one the last time it posted. My problem is that occasionally the chain slips. Otherwise, I find it a great workout. Form is important.
If you find it’s too easy, you might try adding some wrist weights. There’s some clearance under the seat. You might try rigging up a bumper plate with an eyebolt. You’d also need a washer big enough to hold the plate. You could probably hook that under the seat and add some drag.
