I live in Ireland and imported a second hand unit from the JL distributer in Poland in 2014.
After trying one of these machines in UK a few years ago, I did write a good review on Amazon. The ladder does give a very good cardio workout.
But THIS review is about the workmanship - look inside the machine before you buy it! It looks and pretty much IS home made.
Sure, it is made in a factory but it does not have factory made quality.
Basically I was duped into buying a machine which the distributer said was 'like new' supposedly with just a 'couple of hours' use on it.
I was charged the equivalent of what you pay in the U.S. for a NEW machine.
When the machine arrived it looked ok from the outside except for the indentations on the maple rungs. Like it was used by football players who did not take off their football boots and change into trainers.
The casing was fine apart from several screws missing and the transport wheels were well scratched up and worn. More than a couple of hours use.
But overall, at first glance, it seemed ok.
Then I tried it out. The mechanism was rough, loud and jerky. I could not maintain even speed or body position (height) on the machine.
I removed all the covers. The chains were covered in a thick grease with dust and human hairs stuck between the linkages.
The cable/brake release mechanism was set up wrong, with the cable pigtail clamped upside down.
I stripped the chains off the rungs and degreased them, as they apparently do not get treated with grease, but a type of chain oil.
The release cable had to be replaced and the brake adjusted, and the chains retensioned.
But even tensioning/adjusting the chains was a disappointment. There should be washers behind the tensioning nuts. But there are not. Just nuts pushing directly against the frame work. Desperately unprofessionally made machine. How it passes the standards required to produce and sell to consumers is beyond me. If the machine were one fifth of the price, designed and manufactured in China, I could understand.
So I spent hours upon hours trying to fix the machine. It is marginally better now and a whole lot cleaner than when I first received it. But it is still not right.
I spent Stg. £3000 on this and was badly ripped off by Hampton Fitness. My contact there who sold me the machine would not answer his phone when I complained. He sent one email reply saying that he was 'truly' sorry. I asked that he get an engineer out to fix it but he never did.
To be fair to JL themselves, they did send me some small parts free of charge and worked with me on trying to free up the mechanism. Unfortunately it still is not right and they could not send me any more free parts. I requested a new blower unit from Hampton Fitness, as the rollers in the chute carrier were all out of alignment with the frame. It never materialised.
One picture attached shows just one area of the kind of workmanship you would be buying into. The chain linkages on the end of the ladder rungs are ALL at different angles. No consistency. Apparently hand brazed but with no jig. Just hold it there with a pliers and apply a spot of solder. That will do. Next..........
More pictures are of the chute rollers all out of alignment.
And pictures of the axle/bearing holders, ground down on one side to make them 'fit.' No washers behind the tensioning nuts, the list goes on.
I think JL is an excellent concept but made cheap and nasty.
