She did a lot of research before buying this treadmill. The horsepower is about the most you can get. The warranty is good, and includes in-home repair (although you probably won’t need it). The belt is both long and wide enough to be completely comfortable.
Assembely took only about 30 minutes while it was napped. It’s mostly together out of the box, so it’s really NOT hard to screw in the bolts and put the handles on.

EJFen bought the treadmill ten days ago from Amazon. And let’s see his shipping experience now.
Somehow in the shipping or delivery process a piece of the console chipped but it was from the back and unimportant so he just glued it and did not make a big deal out of it. He assembled it myself and I’ve never assembled anything like this by himself before. It took him a couple hours but again- he have no experience here. One of the safety covers for the back of the track does not fit correctly to where the predrilled holes are. With help or being done by someone who’s experienced, it should take an hour max. This model does not have a way to level the machine after it’s put in place if the location is not level. This feature is attracting.
It works well for his needs so far. No bells and whistles though. The incline is manual and is in three intervals (zero, five, and somewhere in between). You cannot add to your exercise time after you’ve started unless you end your session and redo the time, or wait until it’s done. There is a pulse indicator but you must put your thumb on the console which is a little awkward when running.

Other notes:
There is a 250lb weight limit, speeds are between 0 and 10pmh in .5mph intervals, there is an emergency off clip you can put onto your clothing. It is a bit awkward to move from room to room which is what you had originally wanted- the wheels should be larger as well. It is not very noisy.
A fan is convenient but not necessary. I am happy with it so far and I could not have beaten the price. Had it been $450 I would have passed.
If you want to get in shape, and don’t have a ton of money to spend on a treadmill, you should buy this one. In fact, if you do have a lot of money to spend on a machine, I would still recommend this one. It’s a good, solid, heavy treadmill. Get something else with the extra money you saved.
