Solid / Heavy Duty
Two people walk on this treadmill every day for about 45 minutes each. We previously had a cheaper one (not a Precor) that only lasted about a year or so. We became experts at fixing it (replacing motor cards, motors, drive belts).
This machine is heavy and solid and feels like something you would use in a gym.
I do have one gripe, however: for a machine this well built, you'd think that the book stand on the control panel wouldn't be so flimsy.
It is secured with nothing more than several very thin pieces of plastic.
When one is walking, it is hard to be as gentle with this as you need to be to keep from snapping it off.
Other than that one lapse in design, we love the machine!
