I bought Titan Rower SR890 rowing machine some time ago. Due to work and laziness I didn’t use it so much.
Even if it is still new, seat started squeaking. I have ignored it until now, when this squeaking turned into cries of old sick sad dog. Closer look revealed one nut in channel where wheels go, and after I removed seat and managed to get to the nut I noticed that one wheel fell off. Another one is half way to falling which I managed to solve. And all of this after almost 10000 meters rowed in total (10 kilometers), which is extremely small distance.
But in some theory and practice, technicians usually place a washer or two below screw or nut, specially when these parts are on equipment that is moving or vibrating. In this case split washer or spring lock washer is a MUST.
Lack of these leaves impression that TITAN Fitness is not so professional in assembling their rowing machine. If somebody who wants to by such machine reads this and changes his/hers mind, their loss of profit will be bigger than all the money they saved by not placing 6 washers on roll/seat.
And I hope it happens.
