The T73 is easily storable, thanks to Horizon's exclusive Featherlight lift, which incorporates two hydraulic shocks to assist you when raising and lowering the deck. They even hold the deck in place above 45 degrees, eliminating drops. The ultra-compact, fold-on-nose design is the safest, easiest in its class.
The Horizon Quietdrive system uses an integrated digital drive for fast, accurate control. Its continuous duty motor--the same type found in health club units--also incorporates large magnets to keep the RPM low, which translates to a quieter motor that will run longer and generate more power than other treadmill motors.
The computer console has an orange backlit LCD and offers a full menu of easy-to-access control buttons.

Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.
From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.
While many different types, styles, and price ranges of treadmills exist, many of them offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the simple to complex features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting beneficial cardiovascular results without a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.

Pros: Great build, high quality heavy metal frame, well cushioned and spacious tread area, inclines well, VERY quiet (I was very surprised). Nice safety stop feature with magnetic clip you wear; if you fall, etc., it stops IMMEDIATELY, not just slows down. Belt area seems to be well designed, few places I could see where little fingers could get into trouble, better than other treadmills I've seen. Built-in fan seems silly, but actually works fairly well.
Cons: Doesn't fold up into completely like other treadmills I've seen (belt area hangs down at around 70-75 degrees rather than 90 degrees), I pretty much keep it down all the time as a result. Cupholders while nice and wide are fairly shallow. That being said, I don't use/need them, just commenting. Have to power it off at base of motor, at front. Awkward to reach if you have it facing a wall as I do.
Can't comment yet on long term reliability, but comes with a very good warranty and seems to be incredibly well built.
They include all the necessary tools, first and foremost is an extra long Allen wrench. Didn't need any other tools. Pretty much just need to attach the arms and posts to the already assembled motor/belt area, then attach the console. The console is all plastic (no biggie), but was a bit of a bear to attach on because it seems to be precision fit. Don't know if one of my holes was just a bit off. However, I was able to put it all together by myself (I'm sure easier with two people) in about 40 minutes. Aside from the console, it was a breeze.
Packaging & Shipping:
Very well packaged, which is important as it looked like it went through a lot to get to me.Read more ›
Update:4/18/08 Still in love with this machine!! Took me a while to actually get my lazy butt off the sofa and use this thing on a daily basis but have been using it every day for a month now. it's great!!!! We pop in a dvd and I spend the first half of a movie walking... this machine is quiet enough that it doesn't disturb the others who are also watching the movie!! Very happy with this investment... plus my butt is looking better in those (soon to be) skinny jeans! :)
UPDATE: 5/1/08. STILL LOVE IT!! Not a daily exerciser but I alternate this with my Wii for my workouts. Instead of doing a fast walk at 4mph, I lower it to 2mph and crank up the tilt to a 12% grade. Let me tell you, I start sweating like I was running at 7mhp... I've even found a few games I can play on the Wii while walking on the treadmill. Still runs as sturdy and quiet as day one. Best investment I've made.
Although this treadmill was very heavy, my husband and I managed to carry it up the stairs to the second floor. This was very easy to put together...it took my husband only about 20 minutes to put together.
I mainly use this for running and have been extremely happy with this purchase. The treadmill has very nice features, cup holders, fan, different programs to choose from, and most importantly is easy to use. I would highly recommend this treadmill for any one who is looking into getting one.
First off. This sucker is heavy. It came well packaged, but it was pretty beat up in shipping. Rips and gouges in the box made me nervous and had me wondering what this thing went through to get here. Delivery speed was good. Ordered Christmas Eve and delivered a couple days ahead of schedule. The freight company called and said it would be in their hands on Thursday and they could deliver the same day between 2 and 4. I said great and it showed up at 1:30. The driver pulled it out of the truck with a power dolly and had it sitting on a pallet. He hauled it to our garage and then the fun began. We got it in the door and then slid it across the floor using towels. Unless you have a 3 big guys around, don't plan on you and your wife being able to pick this up.
Once in the basement, set up took all of 45 minutes. There were a total of 12 bolts to install...that's right...just 12. 4 for the masts (verticle arms to console) 4 behind to secure the console to the masts and 4 more to secure the arm bars to the masts. The console took the longest to install. They were kind enough to have the electronic snap from the treadmill through the mast aleady located and secure so you don't have to spend a lot of time fishing for the electronic brain the mast to connect to the console. I had originally overtightened the masts to the base which made the console not line up...simply loosening those bolts solved that problem. Once it was put together, it was time to plug it in and give it a whirl. Once on the big orange screen lit up and away we went.Read more ›
