BH T6 Sport Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Ortho belts help cushioning but affect reliability. With that said, it isn't a bad treadmill for the money but make sure to ask for a discount.
When you compare this with BH's P360 (which has the same list price) you will see why we say the P360 is such a bad deal.
The BH T6 Sport is a decent treadmill. At $2,399, this is BH's best value. Still, you need a discount to get the cost down to a level that matches the quality. We wish they would have left off the orthopedic belt, which really affects the reliability and doesn't affect the impact more than a decent pair of running shoes would.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 60", which has become the standard size for walking belts on today's treadmills. This should provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
An impressive motor powers this machine. Many of the treadmills that cost $4,000 or more have less power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A decent cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Suspension is used in conjunction with an Ortho Cushion walking belt to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. We are not fans of orthopedic belts, and you can find treadmills with more forgiving and durable running surfaces at this price.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is okay. You can save several hundred dollars and get a treadmill that has a longer life expectancy than this one has. The quality of parts used is a bit lower than you'd expect considering the $2,399 price tag.
The warranty on the BH T6 Sport is good. Labor is covered for 2 years, parts are covered for 10 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. It's easy for BH to afford such an impressive warranty when their treadmills are so overpriced. Good coverage is nice, but quality is better.
