Early impressions are this is a good treadmill. Assembly is straight forward if you are reasonably technicaly minded say at the level of putting together flat packed furniture. I have no idea how the treadmill will fare long term but it functions well and the motor is powerful and responsive. As running goes its a pleasure to run on. The special offer price seems very reasonable for the quality and i read in another review that parts should be available for 10 years if needed so hopefully they are right. I use the machine 3 days a week and and it helps me to control my weight and feel fitter. I feel happy with this purchase.
Excellent quality for the price. I bought this treadmill with a few reservations. I had expected one of those dodgy treadmills you get in ‘token’ hotel gyms – belt slips all of the time, stops after 5 mins etc etc. However i have been pleasantly surprised. After some work getting the belt tension correct the treadmill has performed very well. The machine does the basics well – i’ve not got it anywhere near its top speed but at 11km/hr it seems fine. It seems harder than running on the road or on gym treadmills i have used recently – i suspect i need to get my level out to check i’m not running on an incline. The incline function on the treadmill is achieved by dropping or raising a couple of supports underneath the machine. All in all a good value product for the money.

This was bought as a replacement for an expired treadmill and it arrived by hdnl in the window promised i even received a phone call from the driver 10 minutes prior to delivery, i was immediately impressed with the standard of packaging, i immediately set to putting the machine together and with the english instructions found it a breeze it took me on my own 45 minutes from unpacking to actually using the machine, the machine is constructed very well and does everything that was promised, a nice touch was that the construction was in steps and each step had it’s own bag of screws, washers etc not like others who just supply a bag of bits that you have to sort out yourself, a brilliant buy and would recommend to anyone considering purchasing.
Great product, great price and very quick delivery. Only took about 45mins to build up all the stuff in the box.
Easy to follow assembly instructions. So far so good, we use it daily for walking. Perhaps a little sophisticated for us ,but our children said ‘get a sturdy one not some rubbish cheap one’ so we didn’t.
