They are adjustable, the resistance can be adjusted whenever you want. But these are machines that can be noisy. Hydraulic piston machines are nowadays out of fashion. They leak, can have dead spots, are unreliable and cost you high maintenance charges. The high resistance and time-consuming solutions are the reasons for them to be outdated. Besides this, they cost you cheap. It is advisable to not use air rovers and hydraulic piston machines if you live in a flat and want to avoid raising the roof of your neighbors.
