The TT8 treadmill from Sole® offers a Cushion Flex shock-absorption Whisper Deck, which minimizes stress to hips, knees and ankles. It also comes with a Polar® chest strap to keep you on target while training, and a 15% maximum incline offers a variety of options for interval workouts.
Looking for an extra-wide treadmill that's ready for hard training? Look no further than the Sole TT8 non-folding treadmill. The TT stands for 22, as in a 22-inch-wide running surface designed to give users an extra-safe, comfortable feel. The running belt is the widest in the Sole catalog, and guarantees that almost any runner will feel confident whether walking at a slow gait or jogging hard. All Sole treadmills are outfitted with powder-coated, all-steel welded frames and heavy-duty, stable inclines. The TT8, however, is more powerful than most, with an industrial-quality 3.5-horespower continuous-duty motor and an all-steel, zinc-coated balanced flywheel. Together, the components create a secure, quiet, vibration-free walking/running surface. The flywheel is also much heavier than most other brands, giving runners the fluid motion they're accustomed to at the gym.
The TT8's console includes a vibrant LCD display and an integrated sound system.
The TT8 makes it easy to track your workout progress via the vibrant LCD display, which includes windows for speed, incline, time, distance traveled, calories, pulse, and pace. The console also sports a 1/4-mile track and a peak-and-valley graph for different programs, along with an integrated sound system for listening to your iPod or MP3 player (the system includes built-in speakers and a sound cord that plugs into your player's headphone jack). Perhaps the handiest feature is the integrated message board, which offers scrolling messages that walk you through the treadmill's features or the workout itself. The message board will also recap your entire routine after you're finished, so you can see your progress from workout to workout.
The TT8 comes complete with two heart-rate-controlled workout options, so you can customize the workout specifically to your needs. Throughout your HR workout, the treadmill will display a heart rate zone graph on the console while adjusting the incline to keep you in your target zone (the treadmill includes a wireless chest strap that touts a 99.9 percent accuracy rating). The remainder of the time, you can challenge yourself with the six automatic programs or two customizable programs.
Finally, the treadmill includes a built-in cooling system that prevents overheating, allowing it to hold up to extra-long runs or back-to-back users. The sturdy design makes the TT8 suitable for light commercial applications, including as a training device for police or firefighters. Other features include built-in cooling fans, armrest speed and incline controls, and large 3-inch rollers. The TT8 is a non-folding treadmill, making it a great choice for homes with dedicated fitness rooms.

I have run on many different types and classes of treadmills from the lower end ones they sell at discount retailers to the high end ones at nicer hotels and gyms. Compared to a cheap treadmill, the difference in the Sole TT8 is significant. Compared to a high end "commercial" treadmill, the difference in the Sole TT8 is trivial. In fact, on many metrics the Sole TT8 out performs these expensive gym models.
On cheaper (lower powered) models the belt will strain every time your foot hits the ground. Just like a commercial treadmill, the Sole TT8 does not even seem to notice. Even when running at full 6% decline, there is no noticeable strain on the motor or slippage of the belt. One of the marketing pitches Sole uses is the inclusion of a 10 lb. flywheel on the motor. This flywheel does have the negative effect of slowing the rate of acceleration and deceleration, but it also keeps the belt running at a steady speed when loaded.
The deck cushioning of the Sole TT8 is one of the best I have ever felt. Many more expensive treadmills still feel like running on a slab. They are sturdy and strong, but barely move up and down while you run on them. Cheaper treadmills often use springs (or something similar) directly under the deck. Running on springs feels like running on a mattress. While it may reduce impact on your body, it is not a natural feeling. The Sole TT8 is sturdy, strong, and cushioned. The cushioning is built into the support of the base, not the deck itself. When you land, the whole platform lowers (motor and all) at the front, decelerating your impact. When you push off, you are pushing from a more secure area at the rear of the deck. So instead of driving springs further down, you keep your energy to propel you forward. I struggle to describe how nice and natural it feels, but the difference is night and day.
The build quality is excellent. The treadmill is sturdy, the side rails are aluminum, nothing wiggles or wobbles. It is also amazingly quiet. Not just the motor, but the sound produced by the runner on the deck. If your TV was on in your bedroom, you would not hear someone running on this thing in the room over.
Assembly was a breeze, though with quality comes weight. This thing is HEAVY. The tolerances were good and all bolts lined up correctly, Instructions were mostly clear although it would be nice if the left/right parts had stickers on them (instead of just on the plastic they are wrapped in.) Also, the instructions do not have a parts listing. So it will tell you to use a "split washer" but there is no picture of what a split washer is (if you don't happen to know.)
At the price of this treadmill you may be tempted to buy a refurbished commercial model. I would advise going with the Sole TT8. Buying a refurbished commercial treadmill is like buying a 10 year old Lexus with 100k on the odometer. Buying the Sole TT8 is like buying the best car Toyota makes, brand new off the lot.
A few gripes:
The display does not show hundredths of a mile. So it will go from 4.7 to 4.8 with no clear way to identify when you hit 4.75 miles.
When I run with the lights out, the LCD screen is kind of bright and does that weird "motion blur" thing that alarm clocks do.
The incline/speed shortcut buttons are not the best choices of numbers. There is no 1% or 5% shortcuts (which just so happen to be my favorites).
The lower level cup holders are just a tad too low for my height. Reaching down while running is not an easy thing to do.
