JLL S400 Premium Digital Motorised Treadmill : I’m happy with my purchase

Best quietest, smoothest compact trader ever. Jlls400. . It is so smooth , almost noiseless and very good value. I am a lapsed intermediate runner, due to knee problems from road running. This machine is so comfortable to run on, you could go on it barefoot. Very pleased and can recommend it.

Quite large in the room but gym quality build. Bought for my elderly mother to keep active. Simple to understand controls. I need to adjust the belt but they assure me this is easy. Very heavy when carrying downstairs , needs 2 men preferably 3.

Good treadmill for the price, quiet, and solid feeling, no problems with delivery or assembly. Here are the specifications for the JLL S400 Premium Digital Motorised Treadmill:

  • Speed ranges from 0.3 km/h to 16 km/h; Incline ranges from 0 to 20 levels
  • 5.5-Inch LCD monitor displays time, speed, distance, heart rate and calories; 15 running programs, first 3 programs can be customised; High powered speakers; Bluetooth enabled with iPod, iPhone, MP3 connectivity and USB interface
  • 16-point cushion deck absorption system; Foldable with built-in wheels
  • Running area size is 135 cm in length and 45 cm in width; Maximum user weight is 120 kgs or 18.89 stone
  • Home use only; 2 years parts and labour, 5 years motor cover and a lifetime guarantee on the frame

I actually bought this directly from jll mainly as i called them to get some advice. We have had it for seven months now and it is still going strong. I am 6′ 4′ and my wife 5’2′ and both of us use this comfortably. I find the width and the length of it to me easily adequate for my size and weight. My daughter has been getting her fitness levels in preparation to join the forces and has really pounded away on it for 30 -40 minutes at a go. The speakers work surprisingly well and connect to our i-pod which has saved me the effort of installing another source of entertainment whilst exercising. It arrived in two boxes and took about 30 minutes to assemble (although some interpretation of the instructions was needed). I have it in my garage and would suggest it needs to be on a pretty solid floor – even with the in built shock absorbers. It does fold up quite easily but not completely vertically so if space is an issue you may need to take this into account.

Exellent treadmill should last for years. Very pleased with treadmill i recomend it and would give more stars if i could easy to assemble very heavy but i got it upstairs by myself (not bad for a 75 year old) l dont recomend the delivery men as they refused to help me lift it upstairs still their loss (i was going to tip them).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Definitely recommend this item.
  • excellent treadmill which the wife loves
  • Best quietest, smoothest compact trader ever.jlls400.

I could have bought this machine direct from jll for a few £’s less but decided to buy through amazon because they gave me that extra level of guarantee. From the outset jll were very communicative with quick replies to emails. Jll went that extra mile to fit and to move the delivery date to suit me as i was very busy (saturday morning delivery at no extra cost). Best off all jll use ‘arrow xl’ for the delivery (two man team). I received text messages from ‘arrow xl’ the day before delivery and also right the way up to when they were just minutes away from my house. Delivery team placed the treadmill exactly where i was going to unpack it and set it up. Unpacking and setting up was very easy as it had been positioned where i wanted it. It took me less than 30 minutes on my own to assemble it.

Excellent product and easy to assemble. I bought it directly from jll since it was slightly cheaper. Excellent product and easy to assemble, sales department was very helpful and received a free matt with my order. The treadmill is sturdy and easy to fold.

    1. I have had this item for about 18 months now and use it regularly – 3-4 times a week. I usually run 5-10k each visit. I’m happy with my purchase, though if i were to buy again i’d probably go for the next model down which doesn’t have the audio and is a bit shorter on the belt – the sound system in this unit isn’t really up to much ( i use an old hi-fi set up beside the unit which delivers much louder music than this machine ever could) and i’m not sure the slightly wider/longer belt is needed – save yourself £100 and just get the jll s300. The operation of the machine has been faultless, just an occasional clean and oil on the belt required. The incline function is good, although running uphill exacerbated my achilles tendonitis and i can no longer use that function. The machine seems more designed for walking rather than running although it will speed up nicely – i haven’t taken it past 15kmph. The program feature isn’t that good – you can only set up 2 “user-defined” programs each with a maximum of 10 x 2minute blocks. The shock absorption feature of the belt seems good – i can’t run on roads due to knee pains and the treadmill has been fine in this respect. Switching speed up or down is easy.

    I would have given this five stars but:1) it arrived broken and i had to contact the company. They were fantastic and sent a new part immediately to sort the problem. 2) assembly was not as easy as it could be. I could not get one of the bolts to go in at all as the holes did not align as they should on the bottom of the uprights. The product could be designed to make this completely easy but you are fumbling because you are working blind upside down with a really heavy product that is difficult to turn over to see what you are doing. However, apart form the one bolt, i got it together although the instructions are not that great at all. For example, they tell you to use two different types of washers but they do not say which washer should be used first – you have to figure it out for yourself. The product itself is great. It worked as it should and i have walked on it at pace for two hours every day since its purchase.

    I’m training for a half marathon and running while my baby naps during the day. It’s quiet enough so that bub stays asleep and handles the long distances and fast pace very well.

    We have had this treadmill for about 6 weeks now and are not disappointed. It is really sturdy, relatively quiet and the fact that you can use the speakers for music/watching a film on the tablet is awesome.

    Fab quality, assembled it myself in 2 hours and i’m normally hopeless at that kind of thing.

    1. Relatively heavy and solid construction but with a few design flaws. Relatively heavy construction but not suitable for serious runners. The console/handles shake and vibrate a lot when one starts running at higher speeds. I expected better stability in design for the price of this equipment. Note that the width is relatively narrow, so if you are of a heavy built your hands could occasionally hit the handle during the exercise, if not careful. Wider models are available but you pay more of them. The heartbeat sensor on the handle is pretty useless, it does’t actually tell you much. Mine wasn’t working when i bought it new. They were good enough to send me a replacement console but the sensor is still not working properly. Another poor design is the two storage compartments on the console. They are not deep enough and are at a slant, so you can’t put your water bottle in them. Even keeping a mobile phone in them isn’t safe as the console vibrates when running and it falls out. The wifi speakers are good and very useful. I watch tv programmes on my ipad when exercising and connect it to the speakers, but the console does’t have a safe space for an ipad or mobile phone.

  14. Purchased this on the 2nd and it arrived on the 6th. The two courteous delivery guys took it up to my upstairs spare room – no problem. It took about an hour to assemble, i must say the instructions were fairly idiot proof. All the parts lined up and materials used, set screws washers etc are of good quality. In fact the whole machine appears to be a quality product, but only time will tell. In use it’s nice and smooth moving up and down both through speed and inclination. Bearing in mind i’m using this upstairs on floorboards i was worried about it being too noisy. However i’m pleasantly surprised. I use my ipad whilst using the treadmill to either watch tv or play music and the bluetooth facility is excellent.

    Takes a little while to set up. Takes a little while to set up and definitely needs two people to assemble. But other than that, well worth the money.

      1. Good machine, easy to assemble, well delivered. Easy to put together, no problems encountered with misplaced holes. It is very heavy but to 2 delivery guys brought it all the way into my house to the back where i was putting it.
