Proform Pro 2000 Reviews and Complaints

It’s been reviewed to be a very sturdy machine that takes heavy duty running without crumbling under the pressure and is said to be as good as a gym machine. One customer hasn’t had to do any maintenance work on it in about two years. Even though heavy and needs two people to lug it in, it has two wheels in the front that make it easier to move around. The machine also needs at least two people to expedite the assembly. Customers are also impressed that it runs too smoothly and makes no noise at all and has a great range of programs to customize your workout. One customer was happy that the manufacturer replaced the console that was damaged while shipping without any hassle.

Customers have had issues with assembling the machine and getting their technicians to come out to fix problems, which they also failed to do and it took 3 weeks to receive the replacement of a console. The parts of the treadmill do not fit all together; the upper part is much larger than it should be and the computer didn’t have as many programs as it claimed to. Trying to set advanced programs brought it back to the same basic levels. For the kind of price, it doesn’t have good shock absorbers and the belt is also thin so might wear out sooner. The bulky treadmill can be very difficult to hold with one hand to turn the knob and even fold or bring it down and could pose a hazard for women especially.

NordicTrack 1750 Reviews and Complaints

Customers have responded in a very favorable manner to Nordictrack 1750. They have used expressions like awesome, excellent purchase and solid to describe how they found it though some have also pointed out certain limitations. Some find it very heavy and hence not portable while some have remarked that its fans are noisy.

Sole F80 Reviews and Complaints

Sole f80 is viewed as a high-quality treadmill that also saves a lot of space. Users usually find it worth the money since it’s not very expensive. They also found the treadmill was quiet and helped in cardiovascular exercises. Though, most of them also said that at 300lb it’s too heavy to be moved to apartments on higher floors or even basement. For some it also folded up and released very easily to give them comfort of use. A customer was satisfied with the treadmill for a year and found that it was as sturdy as a gym machine. But after a year, the rear roller started wearing and making noises. But the more harrowing part for them was that the customer care didn’t have the roller in stock and the customer was asked to wait two months. Even though it’s foldable, it still occupies a lot of space. Assembling the machine is a big hassle and needs at least two (or even more) people to set it up. The instructions are not clear, the parts are not labeled properly and some spares were defective. Even after assembling some customers found that the deck wasn’t in level and had to be adjusted separately. One customer had a problem with the warranty – when he left a message with the manufacturers for the warranty, it expired by the time they reverted making the warranty null. Several customers have issues with getting initial response to their complaints.
