35-1315 Frame construction
The Stamina EasyRow Hydraulic Rower features a design that reminds more of a recumbent bike than a rower. It’s a two-piece frame made of rectangular steel tubing. The rear frame section supports the seat with its rail; the front frame section holds the resistance system, the pulling handle, and the footrests. The base bars of the two pieces connect in the middle via four screws.
All the steel tubes in the frame have a corrosion-resistant and abrasion-resistant gray paint finish. The fully assembled machine is relatively large. It is approximately 70″ (178 cm) long and 23.25″ (59 cm) wide. It is also advisable to allow at least two feet of clearance at the rear and on each side of the rower for easy access.
The exact length of the rail is not specified. However, it is long enough to accommodate users between 5’2″ and 6’0″ (157 – 183 cm).
Shorter persons should still be able to use this rower, but the handle would be pretty high for them, and they will have to execute an ampler motion with arms extended at maximum. Conversely, taller users may not benefit from a complete range of motion.
The rower is not too heavy. Its net weight is only 64 lbs (29 kg). Therefore, it can be carried and assembled by only one person. Also, it’s even easier to move once completed, as its front base integrates a set of small wheels.
Seat and other parts
The Stamina EasyRow hydraulic rower comes equipped with a seat similar to other rowing machines. Its top consists of a high-density foam cushion with a textured and contoured surface to prevent the user from sliding forward from it during rowing. It is also pretty broad, approx. 14″ (35.5 cm), so it provides plenty of contact surface.
The unit’s rail is slightly slanted forward. Therefore, the rower provides a better leg workout than other models with a horizontal rail. The seat is approximately—17″ (43 cm) above the floor at its highest point. Also, the rower’s frame has a step-through design for easy entry and exit.
The base of the seat is steel-made. It integrates three sets of wheels. Two of them roll on top of the rail, while the third rolls under it, closing the seat on the rail for improved stability. The wheels have internal ball bearings and a rubber layer outside for a smooth and quiet motion.
Also, the seat features a small backrest with a steel backbone and two foam rollers for extra lumbar support. Most other rowers don’t have this feature so it may be quite a plus for some users.
The Stamina EasyRow 35-1315 has no conventional pulling handle attached to a chain or strap-like other rowers. Instead, it has a pulling arm made of steel that connects directly to the unit’s resistance system. In addition, the rowing arm features two extended grips with foam sleeves for improved contact.
The machine comes with a set of footrests made from durable thermoplastic material. They have a textured surface, heel guards, and adjustable straps so you can perfectly secure your feet on them, and they also have a pivoting design to adapt better to your posture during each stroke. They have heel stoppers, though, so they cannot tilt backward past an angle of approx. 65°.
35-1315 Resistance system
The Stamina EasyRow hydraulic rower 35-1315 has a hydraulic resistance system with manual adjustment. Also, the included fitness monitor is battery-powered, so you don’t need a power cord or an adapter for this rower. But on the other hand, it does not adjust the resistance automatically.
The machine’s resistance system consists of a hydraulic cylinder visible at the front base of the unit. The pulling arm assembly is attached to the head of its piston. Therefore, it generates a certain amount of resistance whenever you pull the handle.
The cylinder features a tension adjustment knob at the top. It makes available 12 levels of resistance. On the lowest setting, it provides a relatively decent amount of resistance, while on its highest, it delivers considerably more resistance, which is excellent for anyone who wants a challenge.
There are two other essential aspects regarding the machine’s resistance system. First, the hydraulic cylinder will heat up as you use it. However, this is not a reason for concern, but it loses a bit of its overall tension once it heats up.
And second of all, the rower does not provide a dynamic response as an air or water rower. In other words, the resistance does not increase if you pull the handle faster. Instead, it remains constant, depending on the selected tension level.
The Stamina EasyRow hydraulic rower has a fitness monitor that offers a few extra features over a basic model. To begin with, it has an LCD that tracks time, stroke count (strokes per workout), total stroke count (total strokes since the first stroke), repetitions per minute (RPM), and calories burned. However, it does not show distance and does not have a pulse reading function.
The fitness monitor does not have pre-set programs. However, it does offer the possibility to set workout goals for time, count, and calories.
Once a goal is selected, it will count down from the specified value until zero. Therefore, this feature can be pretty helpful as it can help you keep track of your progress from one workout session to another.
The monitor features three buttons – Mode, Set, and Reset. The Mode button allows you to scroll through the workout metrics and select the one you want to view. This way, you can also set the monitor’s scan mode; in scan mode, the monitor rotates all the metrics showing each one for 6 seconds.
The Set button covers the workout goal function. And finally, the Reset button clears all the values on the monitor except the total count.
As I’ve mentioned, the monitor is battery-powered, requiring two AAA batteries that do not come with the machine. The unit starts tracking your data when you begin rowing. In addition, it also turns off automatically after four minutes of inactivity on the rower.

This product also includes free access to müüv, the smart audio coaching app. müüv helps you move 500+ minutes per month with the right mix of cardio, strength, and flexibility for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
