I purchased this equipment to supplement my normal outdoor exercise routine on the days that mother nature is uncooperative. It was shipped and arrived within the five day window promised. It took about ten minutes to assemble. Upon first use, the machine was perfect for my height and provided a good workout without any noise or other detraction. For the price, I remain extremely pleased.
- How accurate was the sizing? perfect for my build
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? it seems to be so far.
The only rowing machine I found for under $*** new, this lightweight model has so far met my needs. The assembly instructions that came with the machine were sufficient, as it took me about 5 minutes to assemble from its delivery box. Its weight means that I cannot do more than its intended purpose, as movements other than those required of the rowing motion are not well tolerated, making it seem like it will tip over. I would not recommend this machine for a person weighing much more than 200 pounds. There are 5 stress levels available, and It has a simple battery powered computer to count and time your motions. Unfortunately, there are no other instructions regarding operation of the computer, as well as no safety instructions nor general hints for use of the machine.
The piston broke after two weeks of normal use. Now it provides no resistance at all when I try to use it. I have tried contacting Sunny to get a replacement piston, but they have not responded. This would be a good value if it worked. I didn't expect it to last for years and years, but I was so disappointed it only lasted two weeks. This is not worth your money.
THE FOOT PADS ARE MADE OF THIN PLASTIC...SO AS YOU PUSH, YOU CAN FEEL THE BAR UNDERNEATH OF IT. THE STRAPS ARE MADE OF THIN CHEAP MATERIAL VELCRO. THE CYLINDER IS ALREADY MAKING NOISE..... THE SEAT WIGGLES, EVEN THOUGH IT LOOKS AS THOUGH IT IS SECURE. AND THE PADDING IS NOT CUSHIONY... THE MACHINE IS A SHORT BASE, SO THE ARM IS SMALL AND EVERYTIME YOU PULL IT BACK AND FORTH, THE MONITOR HITS YOUR UPPER TO MID SECTON OF YOUR TORSO.....YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THAT THE BIG RED BUTTON THAT CONTROLS THE MONITOR DOESN'T HIT YOUR BODY AND WIPES OUT THE NUMBER OF ROWS AND CALORIES AND TIME. ALL IN ALL THIS SUNNY ROWING MACHINE IS OK.....YOU DO GET A GREAT WORK OUT....I LIKE THE 12 TENSIONS IT HAS ON THE BAR....AND THIS MACHINE IS GOOD FOR FIRST TIME ROWERS. BUT IT CAN BE MADE WITH BETTER QUALITY MATERIAL AND I REALLY DO NOT SEE IT TO LAST ME MORE THAN 2 YEARS...IF THAT.....SINCE I DO ROW EVERYDAY FOR A GOOD 35 MINUTES. BUT THEN IF I AM CAREFUL WITH IT....IT COULD LAST A LITTLE LONGER.... BUT ALL IN ALL.....I'M CONTENT WITH IT FOR NOW.....AND FOR THE PRICE REALLY IT'S A GOOD DEAL....BUT REMEMBER...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. I HAVE ONLY HAD THE ROWING MACHINE FOR 3 DAYS...... IT WAS EASY TO PUT TOGETHER......AND IT COMES WITH LITTLE TOOLS.
