A variable stride length, from 21 to 23 inches, offers even greater diversity to your workout.

I bought this about the middle of December 2009, so I've had it over three months now. I use this thing an hour a day, at least five days a week (can't run anymore because my knees won't take it). So this isn't a first impression kind of review.

While there are many things to recommend Precor for, this model has some problems that you should be aware of if you're thinking about buying one.

Pros:
-- overall excellent quality materials and build
-- machine motion is top notch, very smooth, no rough or jerky places within the range of travel -- which is important if you're actually going to spend even half an hour at stretch on it
-- excellent customer service and technical support from Precor, they left me with the definite impression that they care about their customers (and for the price they should)

Cons:
-- this unit has a couple of significant design flaws, see below

Amazon shipped the machine to my house with no problem, no complaints there. It came on a semi-tractor trailer, so be aware because they'll have to be able to get in front of your house with a truck that big. It's tail gate delivery. I had a couple of carts that the truck driver helped me set it on, and I rolled it into my garage. It's heavy, so one person it's going to pick it up and carry it around.

I'm a product design engineer, so I know something about what goes into the design and fabrication of this kind of product. I was also a technician for five years before I went to college, so I'm pretty handy. But I'm also busy, so I called Precor to get someone to assemble it. They gave me the name of their local rep, who I called -- and they called me back once, promised to show up in a week, but didn't.

Honestly, I never thought that I'd be spending this kind of money on exercise equipment.
Why should I?... running is free... and I already had several bikes.

The truth, however, is that somewhere along the line... I got older. (not "OLD", just older)
After one surgery, my knee can't take the abuse of daily running and cycling on the roads around my city is death-defying.

I was familiar with Precor elliptical machines from the gym in my office (prior to retirement) and I have used them intermittently (usually after a running injury or when my back was acting up). Still, I researched all the usual resources... CR, Internet and Amazon. Because of the cost, Precor wasn't my 1st choice, but after more and more research I finally decided on the 5.31. Given that there was only one (fairly harsh) review on Amazon... I took the plunge anyway; trusting, instead, my past experience with Precor ellipticals and the predominance of the positive reviews elsewhere.

Although I've only had the machine for a week... these are my impressions...

Ordering...
Piece of cake - Ordering through Amazon was definitely the right move. Already discounted, I also received free shipping and no sales tax (a savings of over $400).

Delivery...
No worries - Amazon kept me informed of changes to the estimated delivery date and their "Customer Service" was so professional (and unexpected) that I had to write complimenting them. Communication fell down, slightly, once the local delivery company had the ball... but after several phone calls the machine delivered on the day estimated and in good condition. (Note: this thing is HEAVY) having an extra pair of hands around is almost a requirement.

The engineer who reviewed the Precor gave some pretty good insight. My experience is from having a Precor like this one for five years. Of those five years, it's been used maybe 15 months.
Right after we got the machine,it broke, had to be repaired under warranty. The bolt that holds the cross ramp at the pivot point tends to work itself loose. When one of the bolts falls out,
the one that is left on the other side cannot sustain the sheer force, and sheers off at the surface of the frame. the second time this happened, it was impossible to remove so the frame was ruined. Precor cannot complain that the unit was not properly assembled--their factory trained personnel assembled it in my home, and repaired it when it broke.

Hopefully Precor has re-engineered the faulty pivot point at the cross ramp. The pivot bolt on our unit failed twice and there was no abuse of the unit. You should find out who can repair in your local area. In our case, the original company went out of business and the closest person you could get to work on it was over 100 miles away. And not inexpensive either--mileage plus $125 per hour for "diagnosis".; diagnosis was obvious, pivot bolt sheered due to engineering defect.
Vendor expected me to order parts before they would repair. We purchased the unit expecting it was a one time event. So no more Precor for us; if it is not durable or at least readily serviceable, then it's not worth $5,000. We could have bought three other brand machines ( and used them like consummable goods) for what we paid for the Precor. We thought we were getting commercial quality equipment for this price, but it simply is not.

And here's the final insult: if you think this will be an "investment", consider this: after all this, I offered my $5000 Precor to Fit-Serve of Covington, LA to salvage for parts for $100, and they said, "No thanks." So the value of this investment is what?
