If you are new to this type of excercising your choice of rowing machines should be practical, focus on quality and price.

Will a rowing machine help with your love handles?

Since rowing machines are quite fun, and easy for a while, you need to do intense training, and a lot of it. The machine itself will have an effect on your side abdominals, because of all the rowing, but the most effected areas would focus on the arms and frontal abdominals.

Which is better rowing machines or sculling machines?

I would contend that a sculling machine is a rowing machine, just a specific type of rowing machine that mimics the motion of sculling. Another possibility would be a sweep rowing machine that would mimic the motion of rowing either port or starboard (strokeside or bowside for our UK readers) and lastly there is the standard rowing ergometer which doesn't seek to exactly replicate the motion of rowing, but exercises the muscles used in a close enough manner to be a training benefit to rowers both sculling and sweep. So the order of my preference would be. 1) Standard rowing ergometer - works the muscles in a symetrical manner, more practical in price and space than a sculling machine. 2) Sculling machine - also works muscles symetrically, but more expensive, heavier, and larger than regular erg. 3) Sweep rowing simulator - works muscles asymetrically (but you probably get enough of that in the boat) may be useful in certain specific scenarios like learning to row the other side or working on technical parts of your stroke under a coach's supervision, but I would not use one for general physical conditioning.

What is the furthest rowed on the rowing machine in 2 minutes?

I imagine if the floor is good and smooth you could go 20' or so. Otherwise, if you are talking about the indicated distance rowed on a concept II, then that is tough because 2 minutes is not a standard time that is measured and ranked, but somewhere around 700 meters would be pretty good.
