Great Value For Money
22 January 2015
I wanted to wait a while to write a review, to make sure it was up to scratch.
It really is.
Unpacking & Assembly: Unpacking and moving this thing around is a two person job, and not two weak people, but two 'Desperate Dan' types. Do not try and move this thing around on your own, you will injure yourself. The base is very, very... very heavy. Assembly is well detailed and explained in a clearly laid out booklet: all the parts are labelled nicely. Most of the assembly could do with two pairs of hands.
Features: Lots of nice features that are easy 'one touch' to use. They all worked perfectly as advertised.
Belt / Surface: The belt is very sturdy and retains its speed really well: obviously the good motor has a lot to do with this as well. It is very well built and smooth.
Gentleness On Legs / Feet: This is a real win. Doing 10k a day doesn't feel any strain or stress at all. I'm a big chap (110kg) on a weight loss regime and my walking at 5kph / jogging at 6.5kph, don't feel like any real stress or strain on my legs or feet.
Noise: The machine is surprisingly quiet, using it for jogging, the most noise comes from me hitting the surface. That might sound obvious, but a few people have been surprised at the noise treadmills make, and seem to forget the weight that is thumping up and down on them. The machine itself is very quiet.
Overall: Delivery was well handled, they delivered when they said they would with no fuss and put it where I wanted in the house. There is a great deal of packaging material, so trips to the recycling tip will be needed. Assembly was very straight-forward, well explained and the pieces well labelled. The functionality of the machine is easy to use and has some good pre-sets. It's easy to use for basic walking / jogging / speed increase / incline increase. It's quiet and easy on the legs and feet.
You get what you pay for - it aint the cheapest out there, but it does a great job and feels like it will last a good long time.
Thoroughly recommend it.
