When you look at the machine individually, it isn't a bad effort. When you look at this machine when compared with the market you realize how woefully short this one falls.
The BH T4 Pro is a decent treadmill. Unfortunately, at $1,899, it doesn't stand up to the competition. This high of a cost will get you a much better quality machine. We'd take a look at NordicTrack if this is the price range you've set for yourself.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 55". This is a good 5" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. This should still provide enough room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A nice motor powers this machine. It's rare to find a cheaper treadmill with greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A good cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Suspension is used along with an Ortho Cushion belt to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. A few less expensive treadmills have a more forgiving or durable running surface, but they are only better by a marginal amount. Keep in mind that orthopedic belts are taxing on the components.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is extremely disappointing. You could spend less than $1,000 and get a treadmill with a longer life expectancy than this one has. The quality of parts used is also very poor considering the $1,899 price tag.
The warranty on the BH T4 Pro is good. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 10 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. This is the kind of warranty that makes you consider taking a chance on a treadmill, but we still don't recommend buying this model without a huge discount.
