Bottom line
The Kettler Kadett is an interesting piece of equipment. It faithfully reproduces the action of rowing on water, but is it necessarily the best way to get in shape? You will either love it or hate it, so we recommend you try this one first before you buy. If you like action, then this is a good compact machine that will find its place in your home. But if you are not a fan of intense training sessions, you will not use it.

In addition despite a good overall quality, the Kettler Kadett has an Achilles heel, its hydraulic system that doesn't have a great reputation for durability, and piston replacement can be expensive.

This rower could be more competitive by lowering the price, but for $ 599 it's too little. If you are absolutely looking for a Scandinavian rower, we advise you to turn to the Kettler Favorit, which costs only 450 €. If you have a bigger budget, you can turn to a cheap non-hydraulic rower, like the Kettler Coach M which is a much more reliable option with its magnetic resistance. Apart from the Kettler brand, some inexpensive alternatives are also possible like BodyCraft rowers.
