4.0 out of 5 stars Smart piece of kit!, 17 Oct 2010
This review is from: York T201 Motorised/Incline Treadmill (Sports)
What attracted me to this treadmill over the others on the market and on Amazon was the price along with the other customer's reviews. I am not disappointed! I'm really pleased.
It works really well and has the features I'm looking for.
It took me about an hour to put together (and while it was pretty straightforward, the instruction booklet leaves a lot to be desired.
1) The order the additional plastic end caps and drinks holders are put onto the unit. Te order it suggests in the manual is wrong! The corner end-caps have to be put on BEFORE the drinks holders.
2) Inserting the computer console onto the unit. The manual says make sure the different coloured wires are linked together. All the wires are the same colour! Thankfully, the connecting units are unique, and so there male/female connectors can only be connected to the correct partner - so it works out fine in the end. It's the instructions that are inaccurate.
3) Lubricating the unit. It explains why this is so important, and how frequently to do it; but it does not say HOW to do it! Infuriating!

Also, one big tip! The assembled unit is wider than un-assembled - even though noting gets 'added' to make it wider. This was important to me as I assembled it in the lounge (more space) and moved it into my office where I want to keep and use it. Problem! It was too wide to go through an internal door. So out through the back door it went, and into the office through the office garden door. (This is where a little help may have been useful, but managed it alone)
The instruction manual should also mention this - explaining the width of the arm rails and potential problems in moving between rooms at home.

Curiously, there is an Allen key provided in the assembly kit. What it's for beats me! The only tool required is the spanner/cross-head screwdriver, which is provided.

All that considered, I'm really pleased and so can now cancel my gym membership and keep running in the warm and in the light throughout the winter!

The allen key is for adjusting the belt when lubrication time comes!
