How Each Of Them Stand Ahead Compare Others?
Proform Power 995 – More Value with Less
We were really blown away by how the Proform manufacturing Power 995 treadmill with such a variety of features in just $999. The above chart have been clearly showing that Proform 995 is comes high features and innovative technology. It either stand high or slightly lower at the each category. Among all the treadmills, Power 995 is a perfect example that under $1000 with a powerful motor, extra long belt, solid bas.
Sole F63 – Commercial Grade Component
Overall, it is solidly constructed, very stable with a smooth treadbelt, folding treadmill, together with the basics you need like speed, incline, time, calorie count, mileage. Sole F63 are using the best components backed with good warranty with acceptable price range.
NordicTrack C900 Pro – Most Powerful Motor
Comes with a lot of attractive features with less. This new generation of NordicTrack treadmill delivers a big value, larger motor (3.0 CHP motor), longer treadbelt (60”), better parts and attractive iFit Live with unbelievable price range. Personally I cannot withstand a treadmill with less than 2.5 CHP motor. Remember, your treadmill can be tearing out easily when you always stress on the motor. So every treadmill passes the minimum limitation. Of course, clearly, NordicTrack C900 is the winner as it stands head with 3.0 CHP motor.
** Alternative, you may get the older version of NordicTrack C900 with lesser workout program and heart rate at lower price. Check it out.
Note: Proform Power 995 (2011 model) is only has 2.75 CHP motor, unlike the rather larger 3.5CHP motor that equipped at 2010 model. The 2010 model with 3.5 motor was a feature that made last year’s model stand head and shoulders above most of the in class competition. Proform have been lower the motor but add on at others features. Else, it can easily win in this part.
Yowza Siesta – Awesome Warranty & Customer Service
Overall look of this machine is very nice with impressive component and amazing features. The warranty is one of the best in the industry providing you with lifetime coverage on the frame and motor, 5 years on parts, and 2 years in-home labor. Overall, Yowza’s customer service reviews are very positive especially their best in class warranty with no question ask. Yowza Fitness can maintain their good customer service reputation mainly due to their direct-to-customer distribution which cut off the third party retailer. We definitely give a thumb up for the warranty part.
Smooth 5.65 – Impressive Work-out Program
Solid, reliable, comfortable. Overall, the featues, design, engineering and extended warranty make the Smooth 5.65 treadmill a solid “Best Buy” choice. The workout program is impressive up to total 40 build-in program. It is super quiet, has a large walking area, excellent cushioning, a stylish profile, and a cool-running motor. The upgrades at 2011 with extended warranty prove that Smooth is serious about for $999 price range.
What can we say? The competition is truly very hard to define which treadmill is the best buy at $999. If really need to choose the best of the best, our vote goes to NordicTrack C900 Pro treadmill. It comes with a lot of attractive features with less. And the most important, most powerful power motor as motor always is the main bond of powering the treadmill.
Depend on what you need. Each treadmill have it’s own winning point to fight agains the remaining. Choose your best treadmill that suit your need is the most important.
