We bought this to replace a similar product (air rower) which simply fell to bits in no time. This model was reduced to under £300 so we gave it a try. The build quality seems good and runs smoothly and quietly. Adjustable resistance levels too (1-8). Our daughter (who rows a lot on the water) particularly likes the firm foot plates to push from and the straps allow the heel to lift between strokes. Easy to assemble; it's almost built when unboxed. The self tapping screws are tight and need a firm hand for fixing down the foot plates. The seat track folds into the unit and the whole thing stands vertically for storage. So far very impressed.

Can't fault this rower at all for what it offers and at the price too. Has a really smooth feel to it when in use but at the same time the levels of resistance feel very challenging when they are raised. Wouldn't say I'm a veteran but I have been using home fitness equipment for a while now and for the price this will take some beating.

I was using a rowing machine a lot when I was a member of the local gym but since I can't go anymore ( I work night shifts) this has been a good replacement. I keep it in my living room and it's very handy that once you're finished you can fold it up and put it away. I try and spend a good 15-30 minutes on it every other day to just keep my fitness levels up. Nothing negative of note to say but will say that the starting position is particularly good.

This is a great bit of kit for someone who's looking to get into home fitness. Surprisingly comfortable and with a lot of functionality for quite a low price. I'm a relatively big guy and this feels sturdy and robust to me. I particularly like the resistance, some machines can feel a bit too light and easy even at the highest setting but not this York. I've got a lot of scope for improvement in my fitness and hopefully I will keep using it for the foreseeable future.

The RM arrived quickly and was relatively easy to assemble. The console is simple and easy to use and the product quality seems to be good. Have already had some excellent workouts. The only minor annoyance is that the heel straps scuff the footplates.

Excellent machine, excellent service ordered one day delivered the next. Very easy to assemble but do need a good screwdriver for the self tapping screws. Great value with the free mats, I had originally ordered one from amazon £6 dearer without the mats, they failed to deliver within the 2-3 weeks estimated delivery time and then extended it by another week, couldn't wait that long so very pleased to be able to get it from here with free next day delivery. Very pleased with this machine, very smooth action with plenty of resistance

Very efficient delivery, easy set-up and from the best value provider (discount codes available online). Similar resistance levels to most concept2 rowers!

Extremely pleased with product and price, my wife and I will have many happy hours with this. Sweatband service excellent.

York R700 Great Rower been lifting weights over 20 years Brought this for the wife but the resistance is good enough for myself to use, Rowing on level 8 for 20 mins takes some doing my wifes on level 2 this is as good as Gym club machine.

For the price a good quality rower and service from Sweatband was impressive.

Excellent service and an excellent product that I recommend highly to everyone. Many thanks, Sweatband, I ordered Tuesday - you delivered Wednesday. Brilliant.

Great piece of kit and very pleased with it.

Great rower. Was up and running in 30 minutes. I have downloaded screenshot programmes to assist me with my workouts and works out very well. Quality machine.

Very Satisfied with this Rowing Machine. Everything is just fine
