Default Treadmill

Any advice for buying a new or used treadmill? I searched the threads, but didn't see much on this.

Thanks..

Normally you can find them at Goodwill that have never been used for a decent price. I think I paid $300 for one that listed for $1500.00 and it looked brand new.

I would never buy new and if you are a heavy user you should be looking at something commercial quality.

We bought our at a place that sold both new and rehabbed commercial equipment to business accounts but would sell to walk ins. 1/2 price for a rehabbed commercial unit with a new belt and warranty. I'm sure you have some around your area.

They make good clothes racks. That is what they are more commonly used for. Second Goodwill, resale shops, garage sales. $150-200 vs $1500.

Walk outside, or go to the gym. If you buy one, get one with long handle rails, they hold more clothes.

I paid $50 for a basic unit off CL and use it 6 days a week. When this one goes, I might splurge and spend 2 or 3 hundred for a better model.


BTW, mine is dual purpose, it's a clothes rack and I walk on it.
