Things to look out in Treadmills before buying it: Treadmill Tips

It all boils down to the capacity of your pocket. Treadmills can vary from 1000$ to 3000$ (oops that too costly ..right ) but you have to choose it very wisely because your investment has to last very long. So expect to pay somewhere around 2000$ for buying a quality product. Something less than that means you are loosing on quality in some way. Try to go in for best Treadmills. But before buying, here are some points to be taken care of.

a) For Home use: Go in for DC motors as they are less noisy.

For commercial use, Go in for Ac motors but they are a bit noisy and requires a dedicated line.

---------------------
Random Tip : If you are buying a treadmill for running purpose, make sure it has a running platform of at least 60 inches.

b) Horse Power: Do check out the Horse Power of the machine. It shouldn't be less than 1.5 CONTINOUS DUTY Horse Power because anything less than this can be quickly worn out. The concept behind this is, the heavier the motor would be, the larger it will works for.

c) Heart rate Monitors: An optional Feature.

d) Incline Adjustment: You can adjust the incline of the treadmill as per your needs and as per your cardiovascular muscles need.

e) Deck : A Good Deck operates at low temperature and doesn't need much maintenance.

f) Belt: It should accommodate your longest stride That means the length of the Belt should be no less than 48". Width should be no less than 17".

g) Electronic Board. You can cut your expenses here. Generally the normal Treadmill has speed, incline, time, distance and calories. With the addition of other features, price go up. You can always compromise on additional features according to your pocket.

h) Frame: High alloy Steel is preferred over the aluminum Frame. Select Welded Frame over bolded Frame.

i) Find out does your treadmills has emergency shut-off?

j) Incline range should vary from 0 percent to atleast 10%.

k) Listen to its noise in running state and make sure it isn't too irritating for you.

l) Last but not the least, do look out for services and set-up. make sure it is included in the price. Also watch out for Warranty.
