These row machines can be plate loaded as well as pin loaded (selectorized).

What is the nature of a low row plate loaded machine?

A Plate loaded low row works multiple muscle groups, namely:

Back Muscles:

  • Trapezius

Most low row plate loaded machines have a starting resistance in the range of 8-10lbs (3.6-4Kgs).

Free weights like dumbbells, kettlebells, etc. have to be supported & stabilized by the user.

The benefits of a commercial-grade plate loaded low row machine are:

  • Iso-lateral movement arms
  • Ease of use
  • Plate loaded
  • Cost-effective

  • Adjustable seat height
  • No need for a spotter

Solid construction:

Weight capacity:

The weight capacity of a commercial Low row plate-loaded machine can be up to 400Kg. 

High weight capacity makes it more versatile in the long run.

Plate-loaded vs free weights: 

A low row exercise can be performed with free weights. Plate-loaded machines increase the degree of safety and stability compared to free weights.

Low row plate loaded machines also eliminate the need for a spotter for weight support.

Product finish:

Chrome-plating or an electrostatic powder coat is always preferable to a plain paint job. 

The paint is not scratch-resistant and can be easily damaged during prolonged use.

Low row plate loaded machines at Yanre Fitness are sprayed with two layers of electrostatic powder coating for a lasting finish.

Is a low row plate loaded machine adjustable?

The seat on a low row plate loaded machine is adjustable to account for users of various heights & sizes.

 It can be adjusted in four to five positions, both up & down.

Is a low row plate loaded machine shipped fully assembled?

No, it is shipped in parts, as almost all low row machines are manufactured abroad. 

It is not feasible to ship wholesale gym equipment fully assembled.

A fully assembled low row plate loaded machine will require more storage space while shipping. The risk of damage to the equipment will increase as well as shipping costs.

Therefore, low row plate loaded machines are shipped in parts & require some assembly.
