What should be included:
  • Read the warranty carefully. Some actions, such as lack of maintenance, going over the maximum weight limit or assembling a treadmill yourself can invalidate the warranty. ConsumerSearch.com[1] says to look for a treadmill with a minimum of 1- to 3-year warranty for parts and labor. If the model you select offers a 90-day warranty, they suggest purchasing an extended warranty. Some respected brands, like Sole[2] offer lifetime warranties on frames and decks, 30-year warranties on motors, 5-year warranties on parts, and 2-year warranties on labor.
  • Find out what the delivery policy is in advance to make sure there are no hidden charges.
Shopping for a treadmill:
  • Sites like TreadmilLReview.net[3] , TeadmillTips.com[4] , TreadmillAdviser[5] and TreadmillDoctor.com offer comprehensive cost and performance reviews.
  • Most experts don't recommend buying budget treadmills, but Weslo[6] has a good reputation and offers a number of treadmills for under $500. A popular model is the Cadence C44, which can be found for around $290-$330 at WalMart.com[7] and Amazon[8] .
  • Recommended mid-range treadmills include the Smooth 5.25 Treadmill, which can be found for $1,000-$1,200 at both SmoothFitness.com[9] and Amazon[10] , and the Sole F83, which can be purchased directly through Sole[11] for around $1,800. Sole also offers to match any other offers or pricing should you find it for less.
  • In the high-end range, Landice's[12] L7 Pro Sports Trainer comes highly recommended. Landice offers a list of dealers[13] in the U.S. and Canada. The treadmill can be found online at TreadmillCentral.com[14] for around $3,800.

I bought it from Omni fitness.
This is a well built machine. McMillan motor. I gues LifeFitness/Landice uses the same motor.
Some complain about stability. If you have flat surface you should fine.
