What customers say about JLL R200

Brilliant machine! You should buy it with confidence. It took 30 minutes to assemble it. I am a complete beginner and being very unfit after 25 years of smoking and drinking, so I picked this one as my starter rowing machine. This machine does its job very well!

What you get is a great machine for an amateur rower. Twenty minutes per day rowing session goes very smooth and quiet. Ideal for the home use!

This machine is still working after months of use! And it is only for a fraction of the price of a professional one! Definitely a good buy for home!

The handles seem a bit big and clunky at times, but I suppose it adds to the authentic rowing experience…

Conclusion

This is a great machine if you are looking for a starter one. Majority of the reviews are positive and they paint a picture of a device that is very reliable, easy to use and great for beginner users

It is easy to assemble, and has plenty of resistance for beginner and intermediate users. It is also very light and it can fold in half as well! Don’t forget the fact that it also comes with a 7-function tracking console.

Yes, there are downsides, such as the screen not being strongly lit enough and the handlebar being a bit too large for some people. But this machine is a very good example of a great budget rower. Usually machines that come with these features cost twice as much, however.

Robust, professional, affordable. What else can we say? Check this machine out for yourself.
