Summary

The motor performed well on all test’s, the only draw back we could find was the maximum speed of 10 K/H which will make this unsuitable for faster runners.

The folding mechanism works well, and the belt runs smoothly on the wooden base. The belt could be a little longer at 47″ long but it is more than adequate for most runners.

The programs are very good, allowing you to target calories and heart rate values if required, we also found the 5 LCD screens to be very easy to read.

On the whole this is a great value treadmill, it is very well built and looks good too.
