The tensioner on this model is ok at best. it does provide some increased tension but is not major. This works with a magnet that gets closer to a metal wheel, the closer the magnet the more the tension. Because of this you will notice more tension when you start then it gets easier. This is not a deal breaker as it should provide you with enough tension with or without it on. if you need it to be harder then raise the front of the machine by placing it on some wood or a mat. if the angle of the treadmill is to much then raise the back up.
The only minor con with this treadmill is sometimes the belt will slide from side to side while walking. if you notice it you can walk at an angle to get it back straight but always have to be aware of this. They do include an allen key to adjust the belt from side to side.
This treadmill is best for people who want to walk on it and if you are a runner or will put many miles a day on a treadmill you might want to look at another model.
I have experienced none of the problems described here, in setup or in use. The belt runs smoothly. The incline is fine. I use the maximum magnetic drag and it seems correct for me. I'm six feet one and the handlebar is a good height (and should fit a wide range of heights). Now to get into a routine -- I'll let you know if any other problem develops.
It does what it is supposed to do. Setup was easy, instructions were easy to understand, everything went together like it should. It is nice having the ability to fold it up and store it when not in use.
The only drawback I see with it (so far) is that when I sprayed some silicon spray under the belt it began making a cracking noise every time I took a step on it. It is rather loud and annoying. I watch the TV, to occupy my mind, while I am on it and I have to turn up the volume in order to hear it. Other than that it is a great machine.
1. People have complained that manual treadmills are too difficult to use. I have tried out two much cheaper manual treadmills and found them difficult. This one runs VERY smoothly and is a delight to use. The tension knob adjusts easily. I found that starting with a resistance of about 4 worked for me. I think even if you're a beginner, you shouldn't have any trouble with a resistance of 1. I have used many electric treadmills and FAR prefer this one. I find the motorized treadmill very unnatural. My preference is to walk outside whenever possible. I got this for cold and rainy weather, and also, for brief uses during the day (I work at home and sit a lot, so it is really a great thing to be able to take a break for 5 or 10 minutes and not have to get dressed to go outside for a short walk)
2. Portability. It folds up quite easily and wheels over into the corner. It's a bit heavier than the cheaper models (62 pounds vs around 50) but since you can wheel it around, you don't really have to worry about the weight. It fits easily in the corner, so it's great if you don't have much space. At this point I wouldn't want a $4000 treadmill even if someone gave me one.
3. Putting it together - except for a few errors in the manual, it was extremely easy to put together. It took about 15 minutes.
4. RUNNING VS WALKING: I am at an age (60) where my knees don't like jogging or running, so I use this for fast walking, which is just fine on this machine. However, I did try running on it and it was no problem. Still, I think you'll probably prefer this for walking 3-5 MPH, maybe a tad faster if you do intervals.
5. The incline - I didn't find it was a problem that you can't change the incline. But as many other reviewers have suggested, you can just improvise - put a brick or a piece of wood under the back and you won't have a problem.
MISTAKES!! If you try to put it together without realizing they've made mistakes in the manual, it will drive you crazy. Fortunately, I realized when they referred to screw #38 (there is no #38 in the list of parts) I had to look out for other mistakes too. Here are the ones I caught:
STEP 1: The instructions are incorrect about the tension knob. Don't use the screw they tell you to use. Use the screw that is already attached to the tension knob. It works fine.
STEP 4: the button head screw they refer to as #38 is actually #34. Also, when they tell you to look at insert B, it looks like there's a place to put that screw. There is no place to put the screw!
If you ignore those mistakes, you shouldn't have any problem putting it together. Oh, one more thing, whatever chemical they use to clean it smells quite strong when it's first out of the box. I was happy using it for 30 minutes last night, but afterward, I placed it on our porch, where we'll keep it for a few days to let the smell go away. If anybody has any ideas how to deal with the chemical smell that won't hurt the treadmill, it would be nice to pass it on. It probably will take care of itself after a few days, but I imagine someone else reading this review might want some help with it.
In conclusion, I heartily recommend this as part of a complete exercise program. If you like walking, but don't like walking outside when it's cold and/or rainy - and especially if you work at home and like to take breaks during the day (you may have heard of recent studies that say even if you exercise an hour or more once a day, that sitting 8 hours may pretty much do away with the benefit of the exercise!), this is a great machine.
APRIL 17 followup:
I used it for 45 minutes last night. Still think it's excellent. Also, I just put some books under the back end in order to walk on it without the incline - no problem.
